The RainMan Golf Ball Washers Helps Courses Go Green

— December 14, 2011 — Eco
The RainMan Golf Ball Washer is yet another ingenious redesign of an existing product that could go a long way in helping to save the world. The RainMan Golf Ball Washer is an eco-friendly golf ball washer that runs entirely off rainwater. The RainMan Golf Ball Washer was designed by Tim Meredith and is perhaps the best way to cut down on the insane amounts of water used by golf courses.

Golf courses use a ton of water in a variety of ways. First and foremost, golf courses have intricate sprinkler systems designed to keep miles of grass green. Secondly, golf courses use a bit of water on keeping their ball washers full. The water used for the ball washers isn't anywhere close to the water used to water the grass, but that doesn't make it insignificant.

The RainMan Golf Ball Washer would collect rain water and filter it to make it fit for use. The entire contraption is classy, constructed using faux wood and resembling the Olympic torch. Meredith's design may not make the world green overnight, but it's reasonable and something that could possibly appear in golf clubs sooner rather than later.
