We have drinked/drank/drunk? out of the golf course coolers, fixed and mobile for over 20 years in TV.
Always considered them a form of self immunisation without needles, against all water born diseases!
Never had a problem.
Stay well.

Don't flame me, I know I can easily afford the 75 cents, but how tone deaf is that? A major large dollar business fleecing its customers 75 cents at a time.
You can't be serious! Please tell us all where you can buy a cold bottle of water for 75 cents or less. You're fleecing yourself when it's about 12 cents a bottle by the case. I have worked on a golf course (not here) I would never use a water cooler on a course......

I'm sure you are correct but ...... there are some who think they are doing it to make another million - 75 cents at a time.

I've been doing this long before this current event since I've heard some real stories about what can or may have happened with the orange water jugs here in the villages. Yuck.

And like I said in post #17 I worked on a course (not here) and I saw things other people would not believe. If collie1228 saw it she would be happy to pay 75 cents. I'm sure they do a much better job here but I don't use them on ANY course. Why would anyone?
