Nexbelt, 'The Belt With No Holes,' receives an Editors’ Choice Award from Golf Digest magazine for 2020

Go In Shield v.3 ratchet belt, which received the award, has been updated for 2020

(RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA) - Golf Digest Magazine published its prestigious Editors’ Choice Awards for 2020 recently and Nexbelt®, “The Belt With No Holes”, received an award for the “Best Belts for Golfers” category.


Nexbelt’s Go In Shield v.3 ratchet belt, which received the Editors’ Choice Award this year, has been updated for 2020. A beveled edge has been added to the brushed nickel finish buckle and the face flips down to reveal a hidden two-sided ball marker, which is a Nexbelt patented exclusive feature.

“We’re very excited to receive an Editors’ Choice Award from Golf Digest,” said Eddie Rowland, Co-Founder of Nexbelt. “We were the first company to introduce this ratchet technology to golfers here in the U.S. years ago and we’re constantly looking for ways to improve this technology and make a better belt. Being recognized by the premier publication in the golf industry and one that everyone looks to for recommendations is very rewarding. This is also our most popular style to customize. This buckle design allows us to laser etch or color print any logo right on the buckle to promote any golf facility and the ball marker can be customized as well! We won’t let this award go to our head-but next year it might when they find out we have a ratchet cap.”

Company Founders, Tom Hunsucker, and Eddie and Francis Rowland started Nexbelt in 2010 with a vision to reinvent the way Americans buy, sell and wear their belts. Tired of the old outdated pin/buckle system, they set their sights on creating a belt that would be both adjustable and highly fashionable at the same time. Out of this passion, Nexbelt, "The Belt With No Holes" was born.
