The Bee Keeper Society is a new and exciting community brought to life by Sam Bettinardi. Along with the team back at HQ, Sam has developed a plan to take Bettinardi Golf and all of its fans into the Metaverse. Beginning with our Honeycomb Collection, Bettinardi Golf plans to push the envelope and work with their collectors to carve out a unique and engaging digital collectible series. Check out the roadmap below for more details.

Honeycomb Collection

The Honeycomb Collection consists of 777 hand-drawn NFTs, all 1 of 1, highlighting the 25-year history of the Bettinardi brand. In addition to honoring our past, this collection will contain 50 “Blueprint” and 25 “Tour Dept.” NFTs. If you’re lucky enough to snag one of these, your NFT will come with the following real-world benefits:

  • Tier 1 Blueprint: The unique icon featured on your NFT can be redeemed for a 1 of 1 set of Bettinardi soft goods: (1) blade headcover or mallet headcover and (1) wood set (Driver/3W/Hybrid).
  • Tier 2 Blueprint: The unique icon featured on your NFT can be redeemed for a 1 of 1 blade or mallet headcover of the holder's choosing.
  • Tour Dept. NFT: Holders of Tour Dept. NFTs will receive special perks and access to events with our Tour Staff.

How do I know if I got a Blueprint or a Tour Dept. NFT?

NFT artwork will not be unveiled to anyone until the public sale has ended. Once the sale ends, your digital art will be revealed to you.

Blueprint NFTs will have a blue diagonal banner across the top right of the image which indicates whether the NFT is a Tier 1 or Tier 2. People holding these NFTs will be able to reach out to us through the Discord to redeem their real-world products. Once the physical product has been made, we will remove the banner and re-issue the NFT. People viewing our collection on OpenSea will always be able to tell which NFTs still can be redeemed for real products by looking for the blue banner.

Tour Dept. NFTs will include the word "Tour Dept." on the actual artwork.

*Real-world product design will be collaborative with the holder of the NFT, but Bettinardi Golf’s design team will own the rights to the final approval of these goods.

WHAT’S AN NFT?

An NFT stands for “Non-fungible token” and is a fancy way of saying it’s a unique, one of a kind digital item that users can buy, own, and trade. Some NFTs main function are to be digital art and look cool, some offer additional utility. Think of ours like a rare piece of art that can also act as a “members” card which gets you access to members only perks.

What is Metamask?

Metamask is a crypto wallet that can store your Ethereum, and is needed to purchase and mint a Bee Keeper Society NFT. Having a wallet gives you an Ethereum address (i.e. 0xABCD….1234), this is where your NFT will be stored. Learn more about Metamask and how easy it is to use over here! (https://metamask.io/)

WILL THERE BE A WHITELISTED PRESALE?

Yes, there will be a limited number of whitelisted presale spots. Please join the Discord to learn more.

WHERE DOES MY NFT GO AFTER I PURCHASE ONE?

Your Bee Keeper Society NFT will appear in whatever address, or connected wallet you used to purchase. You can see your NFTs on Opensea. (https://opensea.io/account)

SINCE I BOUGHT A Bee KEEPER SOCIETY NFT, DO I OWN THE RIGHTS TO THE DESIGN?

No. Our NFTs do not transfer over any rights or licensing to the intellectual property. These are collectibles. Just like if you buy an original painting, you can’t go out and sell replicas of the artwork.
