Landmark Golf Course Products is providing golf courses open for play with one free 18-hole set of COVID Covers to help ensure safe operation during the coronavirus pandemic. When installed, the covers create a shallow hole, allowing players to putt out and easily retrieve their ball by hand or putter without touching any part of the cup or flag.
The COVID Covers are easy to install and remove; they work by sitting on the top lip of any inserted regulation or putting green cup. They are made of 100-percent recyclable material and can be recycled once guidelines have been lifted from courses. Product demonstrations can be found on the company’s YouTube channel.
“We are all in this together,” says Dan Hlava, Co-Owner of Landmark Golf Course Products. “I came up with the concept to help our industry get up and running during this pandemic and get us back to the game that we love.”
Landmark’s COVID Covers are an alternative to putting out by hitting a cup that has been raised above the ground with the ball, a method recommended by the United States Golf Association (USGA). Though the USGA’s raised-cup method allows for contactless ball retrieval, it also enables some putts to count that normally would not and creates challenges for grounds crews that maintain the greens. COVID Covers let golfers play the game as they normally would.
Superintendents to receive a free 18-hole set of COVID Covers (shipping and handling separate), contact Landmark Golf Course Products at 888-337-7677.
