BIG MAX Launches Walk, Distance, Play Safe Campaign
With the vast majority of states identifying golf as an acceptable activity at this stage in the Covid-19 pandemic, the BIG MAX campaign is designed to highlight and re-enforce the simple precautions that golfers can take to stay safe on the golf course. At the heart of this advice is BIG MAX’s belief that walking the course is the healthiest way to play, as Rick Oldach, CEO of BIG MAX USA explains.
“As golfers, we are very fortunate to be able to enjoy our favorite sport in this pandemic by making a few simple, practical changes to keep ourselves and our families safe. As the leading push cart manufacturer in Europe, we know that walking the course is the healthiest way to play the game, and in these extraordinary times, even more so. We wanted to bring various pieces of advice together in one place with a simple 4 word reminder – Walk, Distance, Play Safe. This provides a useful resource as well as giving golfers the chance to look at our range of options for walking the course in comfort.”
The Walk, Distance, Play Safe web page can be found at https://us.bigmaxgolf.com/walk-distance-play-safe. It gives straight forward advice on how to keep safe on the course, from avoiding touching rakes or flag sticks, through to keeping at least 6ft apart from your playing partners. BIG MAX hopes that by providing an easy reference point, with a simple four-word reminder – Walk, Distance, Play Safe – it can help keep the necessary changes at the forefront of golfers’ minds and help everyone play safely as golf reopens across the country.
“Golfer’s are ready to get back on course but also want to be sure that they can play safe golf, “continues Rick. “We’ve seen a huge spike in demand for push carts over the past two months, showing that golfers are already preparing for the changes. BIG MAX is a global market leader in push carts and as a result we have access to a strong, reliable supply chain to help us respond to this demand. With so many golfers visiting our website and preparing to walk the course, it’s a great chance for us to remind them about Distancing and Playing Safe.”
BIG MAX will continue to update the Walk, Distance, Play Safe advice on their website as new information becomes available.
