Injuries on the golf course are, unfortunately, all but inevitable. A wayward shot will occasionally strike a golfer on an adjacent fairway. Someone will get careless with a cart. As a course operator, you just hope players have the presence of mind to yell “Fore!” when a drive goes awry, and to exercise a little common sense when driving.
There is one rare but dangerous on-course hazard that can be avoided through basic precautions: contaminated drinking water. You may have noticed several high-profile cases of golfers falling ill in recent years, with health officials identifying the culprit as tainted water in the coolers stationed along the course. In fact, one follow-up inspection found that 65 percent of courses studied employed inadequate water handling practices.
It’s not that surprising, given the hassle of washing containers every day. But there’s no excuse for providing potentially bacteria-ridden water to your customers – and that’s why Bayco Golf offers Water Guardian sanitary sealed liners for use in our Igloo coolers.
Using disposable Water Guardian liners is a snap. Just place the liner inside a regular, 5-gallon cooler or 10-gallon cooler, hook up the internal spigot to the valve (sold separately), fill it up and tie it off. At day’s end, just pull out the used liner and discard.
Of course, you can put other liquids inside the Water Guardian, hot or cold. And you can scratch “contaminated water” off the list of potential hazards golfers face on your course.
If only you could teach them to duck…
