Rope It Golf, LLC is pleased to announce our first charity partnership with The First Tee Program. This charity has a special connection with one of Rope It Golf founders, Louis Girifalco.
Louis spent 6 years in The First Tee Program of Delaware when it was still named the Urban Youth Golf Association. He attributes his motivation and determination to start his own golf company to The First Tee Program’s positive message and the love of the game that he discovered through the program.
Rope It Golf is a Delaware-based company, co-founded by Louis Girifalco and Marc Reda that manufactures and sells “The Rope It”. Invented in 1990 by Louis’ father, John Girifalco, the Rope It started as a simple alternative to a hitting net and more convenient than the driving range. Through development over the next decade, its technology has evolved to include a 20 ft long bungee and nylon cord attached to a golf ball using a zinc plated screw eye. This product minimizes the costly fees of a driving range, while still allowing you to take full swing shots on a real golf ball to consistently improve your golf game. This product has now become a preferred solution for golfers across the country when practicing in the comfort of their own backyard with only 20 yards of space needed and measurable results guaranteed.
With the success of the Rope It and its increasing popularity among golfers of all ages and skill levels, Louis has never forgotten the lessons learned from The First Tee Program. He remembers fondly the programs ability to use its 9 core values to build character and prepare youth for important life lessons. This could all be achieved through the use of golf, leaving participants with a lifelong hobby and friends made along the way. Louis is now honored and excited to be able to give back to the program that taught him so much and is looking forward to inspiring the youth of America with his story. To show his appreciation, Rope It has created special edition Rope Its with The First Tee Delaware branded logo on the golf ball. The Rope It Golf founders were awarded a Certificate of Appreciation at The First Tee of Delaware’s annual award dinner as they announced the charity partnerships and special edition Rope Its were to be sold. These Rope Its were created with The First Tee of Delaware branded logo on the golf ball. A portion of sales will be given to The First Tee program to help them continue their inspiring efforts among youth in the community.
