The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship is one of the world’s leading golf events, attracting golfers from every corner of the globe. A celebration of links golf, the established Championship Tournament is showing environmental leadership in the golf world too, embracing Sussex based (HHDBA Member Company) AQUAPAX natural mineral water (packaged in wholly recyclable paper cartons from Tetra Pak) as the official ‘on course refreshment’, for players and officials for their 2017 event!

One of the richest golf tournaments on the European Tour, the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship will become a ‘plastic free’ Tournament, played in October ’17 over three magnificent courses – the Old Course (St Andrews), the Championship Course, Carnoustie (near Dundee) and Kingsbarns’ Golf Links (10km south of St Andrews).

The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship organisers selected Aquapax for the pragmatic environmental credentials of its carton pack format – great quality water in an environmentally sensitive paper carton – as a good way to keep players and officials hydrated out on the course in these more enlightened times.

AQUAPAX founder Neil Tomlinson says “We are thrilled with this high-profile partnership with The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Together, we can show the golfing world an ecologically sound way forward: the highest quality water, delivered sustainably, and consumed proudly. The water a golf course needs to flourish is not the same as its players and spectators deserve to drink and this prestigious alliance encourages us to once again target our local businesses to #ditchtheplastic!”

The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship is played in October each year with the world’s finest golfers competing in a ‘stroke play’ format over each of the three courses. The championship has a unique format, incorporating two separate competitions – an individual professional tournament for the world’s leading golfers with a US $5 million prize fund, and a team competition which features some of the most celebrated amateur golfers playing alongside the professionals.

AQUAPAX is premium quality, neutral pH balanced, natural mineral water produced by Sussex based Just Drinking Water Ltd. Created to give consumers a more ecologically sensible alternative to glass or plastic bottled water, the multi-award-winning brand has its primary distribution through the independent retail and café market sector across the UK, France and Middle East (Kuwait), alongside core retail alliances with Holland & Barrett, Selfridges, online channels and selected London based Waitrose stores.

Packaged in wholly recyclable, majority renewable, 500ml resealable paper cartons, from Tetra Pak, AQUAPAX mineral water source lies deep beneath a protected nature park in Germany, where it is packaged in an environmentally sensitive plant powered by ‘green’ bio energy. The naturally pure mineral water, is naturally low in minerals with ultra-low nitrate levels due to its protected source, making it suitable for infants and all diets.
