Wirz: Bad golfers are good for nature in Graubünden

Wirz and Graubünden Ferien are launching an unusual fundraising campaign: golfers who demonstrably worsen their handicap will be supporting biodiversity on Graubünden golf courses.

In 2023, Wirz and Graubünden Ferien launched the Patgific golf campaign, which showed that you can play golf in Graubünden in a very relaxed way (Werbewoche.ch reported). The current campaign aims to reduce the pressure on golfers to perform even more: anyone who plays a bad round of golf in the mountain canton is doing something good and making a valuable contribution to nature. For every bad handicap, Graubünden Ferien donates five francs to promote biodiversity.

"Playing more relaxed and doing something for the environment - golfing in Graubünden is always a win-win situation, even if you lose," explains Jan Kempter, Creative Director at Wirz.

The fundraising mechanism is simple to implement: Golfers play a tournament or an EDS round as normal. If they worsen their handicap in the process, they can simply take a photo of their scorecard and donate it. upload on the landing page. The total donation amount is then increased by five francs.

The fundraising campaign is advertised with an online campaign that includes a film, several snippets as well as social and native ads.

The campaign is a joint initiative of Graubünden Ferien, the Office for Nature and the Environment, Terraviva and the Grisons Golf Association with the aim of promoting biodiversity on the region's golf courses. Golfers have until October 6 to play as poorly as possible.
