A golf course with abundant water in the form of ponds, streams and wetlands can be hazardous to one’s score. But a scarcity of water – the drinking kind – is much worse. It’s hazardous to a golfer’s health.
You’ve no doubt heard that a person should drink an average of 64 ounces of water per day to stay properly hydrated. Some experts recommend drinking half your body weight in ounces of water each day. By that measure, a 200-pound male would require 100 ounces of water.
It’s safe to say that during a normal round of golf, you should consume 40-50% of your daily dosage – anywhere from 26 to 50 ounces for our 200-pound specimen. And that doesn’t account for sweltering summer heat or the sweat-producing effects of walking vs. riding, which can dehydrate a golfer in a hurry.
Long story short: Providing your players with plenty of liquid refreshment is more than a nice convenience. It’s the right thing to do.
Bayco Golf offers Igloo water coolers – the industry standard since, oh, forever – in both 5- and 10-gallon versions. They’re extremely well insulated, so the contents stay cold even on the hottest days, and durable enough to withstand inclement weather and general beatings while being carted from tee to clubhouse. (We’ve also heard tales of angry, driver-wielding golfers taking out their frustrations on innocent Igloos. Sad but true.)
Attachable dispensers are available in stainless steel and plastic, holding enough 4-ounce Solo cups to slake the masses. And knowing the kind of abuse these babies take (see above), we offer replacement spigots as well, so you won’t have to buy a whole new cooler if this important little part gets damaged.
Frankly, your golfers should expect to have plenty of fresh, clean drinking water available on the course. With Bayco Golf’s Igloo coolers around, they won’t have to resort to slurping from the nearest hazard.
