Rake that retrieves golf balls from water hazards

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTIONProblem Solved

Golf balls are hit into water hazards, never to be retrieved. Some golf courses use commercial companies to retrieve golf balls from water hazards using divers or other methods, but most golf balls are never retrieved.

Golf courses do not have a method to retrieve golf balls for themselves other than using commercial companies to retrieve balls from water hazards.

Golf courses are able to use a rake that retrieves a significant percentage of golf balls lost in water hazards for themselves.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

As stated above, golf balls are hit into water hazards, never to be retrieved. Some golf courses use commercial companies to retrieve golf balls from water hazards using divers or other methods, but most golf balls are never retrieved. The invention claimed here solves this problem.

This rake head attaches to a telescopic pole with a universal “acme” thread of any length that can be purchased at your local hardware store. A rake head of various lengths spanning horizontally extends into the water to retrieve balls golf ball rake pvc the bottom of the hazard. The number of balls you are able to retrieve is dependent on how many balls are in the area of the water hazard that you are raking.

The claimed invention differs from what currently exists. The golf ball retrieval methods that exists are for individual, not commercial use. The golf ball retrieval methods that exist retrieve a small quantities () balls at a time and the golf balls must be visible. The commercial golf ball retrieval methods that exist are large discs or other methods of trapping the balls. Golf courses contract with commercial golf ball retrieval companies to either gain a percentage of the balls retrieved or receive an agreed fee from the commercial vendor. Golf courses are able to use this rake to retrieve a significant percentage of golf balls lost in water hazards for themselves.

THE VERSION OF THE INVENTION DISCUSSED HERE INCLUDES
    • A receiving neck (22) consisting of 2 PVC tubes (9,11), a universal acme thread adapter (12) and a brass adapter (13) are sleeved (9,13) to make the component (22) and secured with glue and rivets.
    • A rake head (17) consisting PVC tubing (23) drilled and evenly spaced with tine rods (14) inserted to make the component (17) and secured with glue.
Relationship Between the Components:

A sturdy receiving neck (22) is attached to a PVC tube (17) with fiberglass tine rods (14) using support brackets (10) and a hex bolt (16).

How the Invention Works:

A sturdy receiving neck (22) consisting of two PVC tubes (9,11) a universal thread adapter and a brass adapter (12,13) are joined together to accept a telescopic pole golf ball rake pvc of any length. The sturdy receiving neck is attached to PVC tube (17) using “L” support brackets (10) U bolts (18) and a hex bolt (16) for maximum strength. The PVC tube (17) contains fiberglass tine rods (14) which are evenly spaced to retrieve golf balls from the bottom of a water hazard.

How to Make the Invention:

A sturdy receiving neck (22) is made using 2 PVC tubes of different diameters (9,11) which are inserted into each other along with a universal adapter (12) and a brass adapter (13) and secured by glue and rivets creating a secure sleeve to accept a telescopic pole (19). The sleeve is attached to a rake head (17) forming a “T” and secured using a hex bolt (16) 2 “L” support brackets (10) and 2 “U” bolts (18) for strength. Evenly spaced holes are drilled into the PVC tube (23) to accept evenly spaced fiberglass rods (14), rods are inserted and glued into the PVC tube (23) to capture a golf ball and offset to keep the golf ball on the rake. All elements are necessary in order to retrieve the maximum number of golf balls from a water hazard using the rake and a telescopic pole (19). This rake can also be golf ball rake pvc to drag the bottom of a water hazard by adapting a strengthened pole (20) rather than a telescopic pole (19) and pulling the rake along the bottom of the water hazard with a rope (21) or cable.

Variations:

The width and weight of the rake it can be changed larger or smaller to accommodate the area being raked and the desired impact on the surface being raked. The length of the tines can vary within the rake tube to create a better protrusion into the surface being raked, whether it is mud, sand, gravel, vegetation or oilier debris. The material of the tubes and tines can be changed from PVC and fiberglass to aluminum, steel or other material to strengthen the rake allowing for more heavy duty applications such as a power winch with cables.

How to Use the Invention:

Choose a telescopic pole that is appropriate for the water hazard that is being raked, golf ball rake pvc. Attach the rake head to the telescopic pole with the universal thread by screwing the pole into the sturdy neck sleeve. Extend the rake assembly into the water hazard and pull the rake assembly back toward your position retrieving any golf balls that have been secured between the rods of the rake from the bottom of the water hazard.

Additional Uses:
    • Cleaning a pond. Remove vegetation or debris from the bottom of a pond. Use with flotation devices to clear a pond of surface debris or vegetation. Retrieving disc golf discs from a water hazard.

For about $30, you can build a solid lake rake with common materials found at your local home improvement or hardware store. I've pulled hundreds of discs out with mine, sometimes two and three at a time!

I can toss my rake about 40 feet out. Good fishing!

Materials:
1 - 1/4" x 50' rope
2 - 3/4" PVC pipe x 10 ft.
1 - 3/4" PVC Tee
1 - 3/4" PVC Cross
4 - 3/4" PVC 45° Elbow
2 - 3/4" PVC 90° Elbow
1 - Sm. can pipe glue
12 ft. - 3/8" threaded rod (4 pc. at 36")
24 golf ball rake pvc 3/8 nuts

Use the pictures provided below as an assembly guide.

Measurements:
- Threaded rods are 12" long. Nuts are tight enough to hold the rod in place, but be careful, golf ball rake pvc. Over tightening could result in breaking the pipe.
- Length of cross piece holding rods is 51".
- Handle pieces are 26" each.
- Two angle braces are approx. 34" long. THESE ARE THE LAST PIECES CUT TO INSURE PROPER LENGTH.

Notable tips:
- DRILL HOLES SLOWLY AND CAREFULLY TO AVOID BREAKING THE PIPE.
- Drill 3/8" holes for rods " on center. Drill additional holes between the rods and along the lower angle pieces to allow the rake to fill with water, so it will sink.
- Rope MUST go through both ends of the rake. Tie one end around the Tee. The purpose is to make sure the rake doesn't get lost if a glued joint fails, or the rake hangs on something underwater. You may bend a rod if you get hung up, but the rake will not be lost.

Fishing Tips: Allow the rake to settle to the bottom, golf ball rake pvc pull at a steady and smooth rate of about 1 foot per second. When combing an area, overlap your throws by half the rake width. Believe me, you'll increase your find!

From experience, the disc will "flip up" on its edge once the rake tine hits it. The water pressure will hold it in place against the tines. In rare cases, the tine will catch golf ball rake pvc lip of an upside down disc and drag it to the bank.

The best areas to fish are those with open bank areas. I usually work about 75 feet from the pin to about 50 feet past it.

Avoid areas under trees that may have shed large limbs and massive beds of leaves, or have lilly pads and cat tails. These areas are a pain. All you end up doing is raking debris.

I did the same with a rake and duct tape, golf ball rake pvc. Here's my question: what is your success rate, and how many discs edge school hockey schedule you think slip under the pins. The Golden Retriever for example hooks the discs so it can't slip out and go underneath, so I wonder if something like that is needed on your invention. I used the coat hanger as my hook on the rake.

Hi SRM,

It's difficult to know the true success rate of "catches" vs. "misses", but overall the success is well worth the effort. In clear water tests, I've determined that the tines dig 1/2" deep into the bottom of the lake. Of course, depth will be determined by the speed of the retrieval. At this rate, I'm thinking the first pass dislodges any discs that may have been somewhat buried in the silt. The second pass picks them up. Again, they'll flip up on their edge as shown in the last picture above.

One thing I haven't been able to determine: Do you have better results if the disc is laying heads-up or bottom-up? That may have an influence on the success rate.

Good feedback SRM. Thanks.

I would think better sucesss if the bottom of the disc is facing up.

EricJ

Does that thing work?

The golden retriever works the best ouf of anything. I've seen a friend of mine throw 6 times and get 3 disc, now if someone could only build a bigger one

But does it only work when you know where a disc is as opposed to these that just blindly find discs?


Randy Sharp

, PM

I would agree with you Dillon. It seems to me the disc would flip up a lot easier because of the angle of the lip. One that is upside down might try to "dig in" to the bottom of the lake. I've thought that because, on occasion, my rake seems to "jump" just enough to notice it in the line. I wondered if I was getting resistance as the disc is flipping over. That may be where the second pass helps out.

Yeah, the Golden Retriever and Disc Diver work best when you can actually see the disc.

Yeah, Randy's rake and my dredger were designed to work in muddy water with no visibility. That's pretty much every water hazard on Houston courses. You could spend days tossing a Golden Retriever in our lakes before you got lucky enough to snag your disc.

From the other thread:
In it's present (1st try) design I'd say my dredger just works so-so. I used 5" long 3/8" bolts for the teeth. Turns out that's not really enough weight to sink the device deep enough in the soft mud at the bottom of the ponds. In hindsight I should have gone for at least the 1/2" thick bolts, but at the time I though that'd be too heavy :rolleyes: Plus the 3/8" bolts were like $, and the 1/2" ones were almost $2 each. It needs more weight to keep it down as you pull towards you. Total cost was ~$30 in parts and two hours of design and labor.

I've got a tent stake at the end that I pound into the ground to keep all the rope from following in after I toss the dredger. I learned pretty quickly not to pound the stake into a fire ant (casinoextra.fr) "hill" and then stand there in sandals dredging. In my defense there was no mound built up, they were all lurking underground, but still got stung

Eric, I think the most impressive design aspect of your "rake" is the placement of the eye bolts and rope attachment points. Do you find that lip of bolt helps, or do you think it makes a difference. Plus, I like the fact that yours is more portable.

BTW - I not surprised that someone who has the LINKS as their home course came up with this invention, golf ball rake pvc. When there is a need

ERicJ

I think the head/lip of the bolts helps a lot actually. It gives the bolt the ability to get a better "grip" on the disc when pulling it back to shore.

what did you use to hold the line together?

Rope Clamps (casinoextra.fr?langId=-1&catalogId=&productId=). They're simple pieces of metal with a small spike that digs into the nylon rope and you hammer them closed to secure the connection.

You can build a lake rake for next to nothing if golf ball rake pvc know what materials to use. I built one out of old bicycle parts. Take the fork of a kids bike, and bolt it to a Garmin forerunner vs samsung gear sport piece of fence post. Then take an old Bike tire rim and cut it into " lengths and bolt those to the golf ball rake pvc post about 5" apart, golf ball rake pvc. The curve of the rim helps keep the discs from slipping through - and the weight helps keep the whole unit on the bottom.
Sam Golf ball rake pvc showed me this design down at USDGC a few years back - and it's very effective. I built one for Paw Paw - and that's where it sits - so I will take a photo when I go up in a couple weeks. All I had to pay for were the nuts and bolts - everything else was salvaged.

around here if you find water your probably in the river
our rivers are full of dead wood, limbs, sludge?, etc
these "rakes" look like they'd get caught on everything, any experience with getting them stuck? or do they pull over the obstacles in the water

i only ask cause i wanna make one, but dont think it'll work in this situation
i imagine those rakes work good for ponds and whatnot

I built a retriever similar to the Golden Retriever except twice a wide. I found six discs first time out and missed about 10 based on golf ball rake pvc the rope feels when you pick one up. Dropped discs were due to the front pieces extended too far and allowed the disc to flip up and go over the top. No problem as on my last throw the rope was untied and I lost it. Second retriever is 16" wide rather than 18 and the center divider is one bolt with a 3/4 pvc pipe around it. First attempt was two dividers about 3" apart that would catch a disc but it would flip over the top. Materials list is 4' chain link fence stretcher bent in a rectangle with 4" sides. Drill two 1/4 in holes in each side 1" from the corner. I used 1/8" steel rod 36" for the two pieces that pull the rig through the water in a similar fashion as the golden except not twisted around the base but inserted in the holes drilled. 5" bolt for center and short piece of pvc pipe for divider. 50 foot rope. I can throw this 50 feet with ease. I can post picture if someone can explain how to do it. Everything available at Lowes under $

Definistrated29

Made mine following Foundit's directions above. A vice made bending the flat steel easier, and access to a drill press made making the holes even easier. I bent the chain link tension bar a little long on the top and bottom so mine has two pvc covered bolts instead of one. I haven't gone blind fishing yet, but used it three times this week. One disc was probably seven feet deep in the lake. Threw the getter past it, drug it back, and bingo; disc in hand. The other two times the discs broke through some ice and were about halfway from the surface on some ice still. The weight of the getter was able to break through the ice and bring in the discs easily. It has already been well worth the money I spent to build it. I'm looking to maybe make a smaller, lighter more portable one. Thanks for the guidance Foundit.

We have one of these in our home, golf ball rake pvc, what if you modified one of these with zip ties and rope to hold it together. Figured it'd grab into the bottom just fine, and scoop them up without a problem. i'll have to try one when I get back home in a few weeks

Yeah that's my problem. That thing was awesome though. They would rig it to some really long ropes in a pulley system and zig zag the entire lake with that thing.
I'd be spending an hour trying to get one of my discs with my golden retriever and jordan concord baseball cleats he'd pull up and let me borrow it, usually taking only one throw to get it.

A friend lost his favorite Roc not far from the edge of the water and I saw where it hit, golf ball rake pvc. So I decided to make a Lake Rake from some of my extra PVC.

I got his ROC (the blue disc) in just a few minutes. Then I decided to go to other areas golf ball rake pvc try it out and after about 20 minutes I pulled up 2 other discs. The rake will work better in the fall or winter. The lilly pads are a bit of a problem.

i built a hybrid of the two design on the first page so its like a triangle dredger and man does this thing work! its not unrealistic to say that you could pull out 25 discs in an hour easy with one of these, if the pond has that many in it of course theyre deffintly worth making and having. ill post pics of mine later, i made mine be able to break apart so it fits into a backpack or reusable grocery bag type thing

sorry for taking a year but heres pics

longest side is 32" shorter on is 22" and the shortest is 4". i had to do the 90° along with the ° or whatever it is in order to get the triangle kinda shape i wanted because ther arent 45° fittings that i could find in that size pipe.

i use the eyes in the corners mostly to tie it all together in case it came apart in the water so i didnt lose anything but it turned out to make a nice handle to throw it

the spikes are long screws with their heads chopped off, they grab the discz. they stick out about 2 or 3 inches from both sides so they will catch discs regardless of how it lands in the water cause it flips sometimes

i filled the longest side full of cement so its heavy and sinks into the dirt on the bottom a little to grab discs better

i use a 30ft rope and toss it golf 8 prix maroc then pull it back in. on the end thats not tied to the rake i have it tied to a bungee cord that i can just bungee around a tree ir whatever

hope this helps!!

sorry for spelling errors. ****ing phones are hard to write alot from

I am not going to just offer up my design to anyone. Not being rude, but it has demonstrated worth. I pulled almost a thousand discs out of one hole with it over a month throwing it for a few hours each day.

I just built one for Alaska. It has about 85 pieces of pvc, 20 10 inch rods, and a lot of ingenuity. If you want one, I can build you one or sell you swedish chess computer association plans. Just the materials alone, not including rope, are well over dollars. This isn't your average garage rake. If they are there it will get them. I have pulled in 8 in one pull before, golf ball rake pvc.

It doesn't work well in dense vegetation, golf ball rake pvc, rocks, or logs and roots. It is designed for sand/mud.

There are some tricks that keep rakes strong and stable.

First clue is to build it in a large golf ball rake pvc or diamond shape. Then, you want to run the rope through the rake. The strength of pvc is not enough. If you are pulling on something that the rope runs through it distributes the force and can withstand a lot.

hydrillathat stuff is nasty and you will pull it up like crazy. It keeps the rake from getting on the bottom of the lake. You can still find some but won't find a ton unless the lake is just chocked full. Now, if you are patient you can keep going over the same spot and get it all off the bottom until you get to the discs.

I realize this thread is a little old. Anyone mind doing a write-up on the smaller golden retriever like disc retrievers ? There is one pond I have lost 2 hard to find discs in and would love to get them back.

When i golf ball rake pvc in Arizona i made a "golden retriever" out of old coat hangers and fishing weights. Use a fishing pole and reel with 30 or 40 pound fireline and you can get out feet or more. It worked great at fountain hills, and Vista Del Camino. If it gets snagged and you can't free it you just break it off and put another one on. It is very hard on the reel so don't use a good one or find one used somewhere.


uncle pennybags

I made a rake similar to the first post. I did work, even with the insane amount of vegetation in the pond. I only managed to retrieve 7 or so before I was tired, something like lbs of weeds was annoying. I'll keep trying, but so far it's paid for its self.

Finally built one based off the one in the first post. Pics: casinoextra.fr It works great. I pulled up 7 discs in under an hour just trying to get the hang of it. I can only throw it bauer hockey helmet bag about ' now but once I figure out the best way to toss it I should get it out further.

I put the tines inches apart and it's 36 inches from end tine to end tine. I bought everything to make it at home depot and it cost a total of $ But at this rate it will pay for itself in no time.

Surprisingly the tines dig down and cut through the grass/mud without plowing(for lack of a better term) it all up. The only issue I have with it so far is being able to throw it out beyond ft. I pulled out 5 more discs with it today in about 30min.

The lake on the local course here has crap tons of debris/grass on the bottom, and so far hasn't been a problem for it.

You need to remove the knot and use a slip knot. Why? the tighter you pull on it the tighter the triangle gets.

You need to remove the knot and use a slip knot. Why? the tighter you pull on it the tighter the triangle gets.

A buddy and I built one recently, we used the slip knot and it is a great idea.


We also discovered that it is best not to glue the joints of the cross member that has the tines (if you do glue at all). The reason for this is so that beam can twist instead of breaking if you get caught up on something big.

I put carriage bolts on mine, bolt head out. It gave it a bit more bite and the discs had something to grab on to. The downside was that it had more bite and could grab hard to rocks, turtles, golf ball rake pvc, weeds, etc.

So I've been thinking about this for a while and I'm wondering if a rake similar to the way a wheel-tractor scraper works. I'm thinking that if I can build one that can allow the sand to fall out, golf ball rake pvc, but retain the discs, golf ball rake pvc, I can pull it along while in a canoe or kayak, and can scrape most of the pond quickly. I'm trying to figure out the handle, though I know I need at least 8 feet, and it needs to be collapsible, or disassembled easily.

Well I tried building a cockamamie one. Spikes on one side as per the original design from EricJ and a basket setup or net on the other side. Didn't get anything out of my pond. Too much thick mud and too heavy to throw far, golf ball rake pvc. I tried dropping it on one side of the pond and scraping back to the mouth. All I got was a decomposing turtle that made a stench so horrible that me and the dog had to go for a bath as the disgusting yellow insides oozed out and floated on top of the pond tried it both sides up.

I think I will revisit EricJ design and change mine to make it lighter. I don't think a scraper is the way to go, but different ponds different design. Those bolts or allthread makes more weight that you might think. The carriage bolts also seem favourable from a safety standpoin as well less sharpness on the end when throwing or dragging in

I built the exact one from the original post by Randy Sharp, I also have a pond that's thick with moss, branches, and rocks. The first time it got mangled by the things I listed previously. It was probably a combination of that and that I didn't quite glue the joints well enough but the design was a little too big even for my SUV. So I cut all the dimensions in half and it was a lot stronger without having the tee joint in the middle of the rake. I've raked the pond twice now for about 45 minutes each time and I've gotten a total of 16 discs so far! My buddy and I found that instead of throwing the rake, we lay the rake in on one side and drag the rake all the way across to the other side, obviously you can only do this if the pond is small enough but thought I'd share our method.

What's everyone's thoughts on returning discs from golf ball rake pvc pond that have numbers on them? When I find discs on the course I'm always courteous to call/text if it has a number on it but since I've started raking, it seems like I'm doing so much work that I shouldn't have to return it and when I throw my own discs in water I don't expect them back. Granted out of the 16 we've found only 2 have had numbers on them. Maybe I'm wrong but that's just how I personally feel, if enough people tell me I should return the pond discs then maybe I'll start doing that :)

If you spent the time and money to build the rake and the effort of raking them out they are yours to decide. Obviously you didn’t build it to get no personal outcome. If I lose golf ball rake pvc disc on land the chances are I spent a considerable amount of time looking for it and would appreciate a text, golf ball rake pvc. If lost in water I hope whoever gets it enjoys a new disc! If it’s a disc I never think I’ll use or give to a friend/kid then I’ll reach out to return. But with all that effort I’m keeping most the discs and trying to improve my game. If disc has a personal message like “gift from kid” or “ace disc” then yes I would like to get that disc back to owner.

Enjoy your rake and new discs sir.

I agree with this, COMPLETELY.

That said, if someone's courteous enough to contact you about your disc they found, don't make them jump through hoops.

Generally speaking, the owner of the disc should make returning the disc as simple and easy as possible. The finder's already done you a solid just by contacting you.

I agree with Bogey but (haha) I have multiple crappy experiences trying to return discs. Given the option I enjoy texting someone that I found their disc and that it's up at the course. People I know, I will call or hold it, I don't mind helping, better yet pass it off on one of the people most likely to see them so it's no longer my problem.

I do not keep other people's discs, bad karma I have no interest in keeping them (other than the soft black Envy someone left here. If it's a pdga number he's in Florida). I posted it on FB when I found it. It's probably going to sit here like the others I especially will not pay $15 in postage which is where my butt hurt is coming from. Shoot me some cash and I'll mail it to you, no probs but don't expect me to foot the bill and chew me out about it. That's one phonecall I wish I'd never made.

Wow, I thought I was going to necro-post on this thread, but there's recent activity. I built the OP version rake that started this thread. It does grab discs that I can see under the water in 1 or 2 tries. I've also pulled some randoms I couldn't see.

But my problem is, the pond here is very silty at the bottom and if walking in it you sink to your waist. The lake grows lots of algae which eventually settles thus covering the discs. I have a feeling this rage (even with holes drilled) isn't dragging deep enough and is missing 6 lug military wheels of the older discs. I can probably just ass some thing heave to it, like some rebar across where the tines are. But I wanted to post here to see if anyone else encountered anything similar or if there's any better ideas than what I was thinking about trying.

Another reason I don't think it's going deep enough is because when I pull in the rope at 1ft/sec and stop pulling, it golf ball rake pvc feels like it is coasting along the bottom on its own.

Ideas?

OH, and yah the OP design is huge. It doesn't fit in a normal 4-door sedan. So I just stashed it in the bushes at my local course.

I made my 2nd lake rake much smaller so it is easier to throw and transport, golf ball rake pvc.

For the bolts I went with carriage bolts with the bolt head pointing outwards. I always felt like this scrapes the bottom better, and has the added benefit of holding discs a little better too!

I used some Emt electrical conduit and a bunch of all thread rod to make mine. Sinks well, doesn't work worth a ****. But if one were to replace say just the tooth bar with metal pipe it would help it sink, but it makes it tough to handle.

You could also tape a steel pipe to it on top of the bar. If you use say electrical tape: pull the tape a bit to stretch it as you wrap it, sticky side down like normal, golf ball rake pvc. On your second wrap, flip the tape sticky side up, remember to pull it a bit so it's tight. Last wrap flip the tape sticky side down again, now your tape is adhering sticky to sticky side and won't unravel in the water.

You could also drill shooting phrases hole or two in there and fill with a concrete. Or tie 6 McGriddles to it, golf ball rake pvc, they're almost as heavy as lead but then Greenpeace will be up your ass for the oil slick!

I like this disc grabberI've made it and it has worked for me. It does catch on rocks, tree limbs, debrismainly due to the angle of the 'hooks'. If I could weld, I think an unbent coat hanger welded on the ends of the hooks might improve it. I like the size and keep it in a small box in my truck.

Thanks for that tape tip.

Also, I didn't think mine was working that great, but of some of the inked discs I pulled and texted number, the owners were saying they lost that disc there 'years ago'. I think in my pond here I need to go over an area many times and get deeper and deeper as I get through the sunken algae.

If you are using tape, use the "rescue tape" It's that self fusing silicone tape that isn't sticky. Works really well in some applications, and this is one. I had a crack developing in one of my rakes and used it, got a bunch of more life out of it!
