Monterey Peninsula Country Club, one of the courses that hosts the famed Pebble Beach Pro Am, has recently done their part to help the planet by eliminating bottled water on two of their world class golf courses. Management chose LifeSource because a water softener can't be used on a golf course.
Inspired by their neighbor course, Pasatiempo Golf Course, Club House manager Brian Hein led the effort to place 8 LifeSource Water System hydration stations throughout their 2 courses. This allows their golf members and guests to enjoy great tasting water, either using corn compostable cups or re-useable water bottles. All of the members will be provided with BPA free water bottles, and guests will be provided with compostable cups made from corn starch at each hydration station. We at LifeSource are really excited about the leadership shown by MPCC, as over 100,000 fans attend the Pro Am each year.
If each person uses just 1 less bottle of water, we will have a huge environmental impact. We have already seen interest from other area courses and we plan to bring Ed Begley Jr. to the course this summer. Who knows, maybe we will see the famous actor and former mayor of Carmel, Clint Eastwood at the event. Or maybe this year’s pro-am winner Bill Murray will attend. Thanks to MPCC and Brian for doing their part for the environment!
