franks only is the first golf community on-chain. for the golf obsessed, franks only consists of a collection of 8,000 NFTs––unique digital collectibles living on the Ethereum blockchain. franks only will create a new model for the golf community. not only will your token get you access to an exclusive marketplace, events, and golf tournaments, it will also gain you access to the first private golf course where your membership is granted through a franks only NFT. we're not talking about a golf course in the metaverse, we're talking about a golf course in the real world. we're building a real golf course for the franks. franks only.
each frank is unique and programmatically generated from 162 possible traits. some traits are more rare than others. The franks are stored as ERC-721 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain and hosted on IPFS. Purchasing a frank costs 0.1 ETH.
40 franks are being held back from the sale to save for giveaways and the creator's membership to the franks golf club.
the #franks-only discord channel opens for franks only holders. the franks clubhouse opens. an online portal where frank holders can create a profile and gain access to franks only content and merchandise.
4 exclusive tokens for 4 random franks. winners will receive the token and are invited to be the first foursome at the franks golf club.
play golf with the franks. access to franks only golf tournaments at IRL golf courses in the U.S.
the franks pro shop opens, exclusively for franks.
the goal is to get a private golf course for franks only. whether we build the golf course from scratch or buy an existing golf course is still open for discussion. bottom line, the franks need a place to play, and the modern club isn't suited for us. your token would give you access to exclusive events, tournaments, and gatherings at the franks golf club. decisions like location, layout, and course design will be influenced by the community.

the goal is to form a community for the golf obsessed to talk and interact about all things golf, with the ultimate goal of buying or building a golf course in the real world, exclusively for franks. along the way, we plan to host frank only events, tournaments, and gatherings at various golf courses across the U.S., open a frank's only pro shop where you'll be able to purchase exclusive gear, and give back to the community via donations to the First Tee, Youth on Course, and other golf focused charities.

join our discord server here. we plan to use discord as a means to promote conversation and community. we'll also be doing giveaways and looking for feedback on roadmap items. joining our server is the best way to stay informed and voice your opinions on the project. we do not plan to use the discord as a means to gate or provide special access to mint.
now! connect your wallet using the button at the top of the page and mint a frank. we suggest using metamask.
franks are all inclusive. you don't have to be a scratch golfer, own golf clubs, or start every morning with the Morning Drive on Golf Channel to be a frank. franks simply love golf.
franks only was started out of a love for all things golf and tech. we're fed up with the current golf landscape, annoyed by the private country club culture, and can't stand to play another 6 hour round at the local muni. we hope to create a community of golf addicts looking for something better.
20% goes back to the team to cover their time, effort, and continued support. 50% will go into cash, preferably somewhere we can earn some interest, but ultimately somewhere safe. there are legal fees, startup costs, and ultimately taxes to consider and we don't want to be broadsided. the space is still in it's infancy and there are a lot of unanswered questions when it comes to regulation. we'd like to be prepared. as we get more answers, this 50% will hopefully find better purpose than uncle sam's pocket (i.e. invested back into the golf course). the remaining 30% will go back to the community. this money will be used to fund events, tournaments, gatherings, and ultimately, the frank club.
there will only ever be 8,000 franks. the mint price for the first 100 franks is 0.1 ETH, the following 500 franks are 0.2 ETH, and the remaining 9,360 franks will be 0.3 ETH. each transaction is limited to a quantity of 20 franks with no limit to the number of transactions per wallet. please do your research before minting to position yourself for the best possible minting experience.
we plan to pre-mint 40 tokens of the 8,000 token collection to save for giveaways and the creator's membership to the franks golf club.
before reveal, the hidden image metadata will be stored on IPFS. once we reveal, metadata and images will have been randomized and uploaded to IPFS. after the sale we will ensure further decentralization by freezing the metadata on OpenSea.
10% will go to the franks team. these royalties will be largely used to re-invest into our roadmap. 2.5% will go to OpenSea fees. this is the standard fee OpenSea charges per sale.
ask the franks, but ultimately, this is your decision. we believe this is an extremely unique opportunity and the franks have a long life ahead of them. this project will be influenced by the franks, ever growing, and evolving. there are tons of factors and variables that will contribute to the success of franks only, which means there are limitless opportunities (to the moon baby), but like most things, who knows. the franks only team is not liable for any losses.
well the short answer is, no. there are major concerns about sharing too much about the potential properties in fear that we'll lose the opportunity or prices will be adjusted once they find out who's interested. as of right now, our best option is to keep these details in the dark. it is safe to say that there are multiple options for us to consider. we're currently investigating and doing due diligence on building something from scratch and/or purchasing an existing property. while we can't share specifics, what we can tell you is that franks only is going to offer an experience like none other and we're extremely excited to build the future of golf, together.
learn more about the team:
a couple golf junkies who dream about owning and operating their own golf course.
software engineer for the past 10 years by day, hacker by night. wanna-be digital artist. aspiring scratch golfer. have worked on multiple large scale (1MM+ user) projects in all aspects from leading teams, writing code, designing architecture strategies, testing, and product development. if the suns up and i'm not behind the keyboard, i'm on the golf course. otherwise you can find me getting in reps on my makeshift golf simulator. (convinced the local golf shop to sell me their old GC2 when they upgraded to a quad.) i've been golfing since i could walk and have seriously contemplated quitting my job, moving to pinehurst, and caddying for a few years. matt cardis is my sprit animal. i watch masters re-runs on youtube and have to skip through golden bell sunday 2020 (iykyk). hoodies, music, shorts, and t-shirts should all be allowed on the course. just don't play slow. the big cat is going to win again, i hope rickie gets it figured out, and cam smith needs to keep the mullet.
lawyer for vc funds and startups, consultant, philanthropist, ebay addict, dead head. participated in the states blockchain council to formulate strategies and regulations regarding blockchain tech and impact on securities law, taxation, and banking regulation. if i'm not golfing, i'm fly fishing. absolutely hooked on buying new gear. i've probably gone through 10 sets of irons, a dozen drivers, and multiple wedges and putters in the last year. my latest fixation has been on super small putter raffles on shady fb groups. chasing a circle T to round out my collection and still hunting for an american classic, but finding stuff like that in lefty is a challenge. i spent the majority of my time as a kid at the local muni. worked there through high school and college. the degen pro who played in jeans, smoked more cigs than daly, and took everyone's money taught me everything i know. victor schwamkrug is my hero. bubba's a cry baby and he doesn't even hit it that far.
