All-Flex hazard markers, Tour Pro bunker rakes and Gator Grip rake handles have been introduced to start the 2014 season.
Standard Golf, the Cedar Falls, Iowa-based manufacturer of golf course accessories, has introduced these new products to start the 2014 season:
All-Flex Marker—a new hazard marker that can be run over in any direction without damage. The groundbreaking design of the new All-Flex Marker allows it to flex back from 360 degrees, saving maintenance crews time when mowing around hazards.
“The All-Flex Marker is a great time-saver for maintenance crews, because [operators] no longer have to jump off the mower to remove a marker, and then jump off again to replace it after mowing around a hazard,” says Jim Nygren, Director of Marketing at Standard Golf.
All-Flex Markers feature a super-tough polyurethane joint that allows it to flex back from any angle. A replaceable, UV-resistant polycarbonate sleeve provides added protection and is available in five different colors. A specially designed ground anchor installs flush to the ground. All-Flex Markers are not intended for use on fairways.
Tour Pro Bunker Rake—a new line of high-quality bunker rakes that feature wider, more versatile heads and an all-new, premium handle. Available with 20” (51 cm) and 25” (63 cm) heads, the Tour Pro Bunker Rake is designed to produce smooth, level, playable surfaces with minimum effort.
The pioneering grooves on the topside of the rake head ensure tournament-quality surfaces using either the top or bottom of the rake. A single self-tapping screw (included with purchase) is all that’s required for rake assembly.
“The Tour Pro Bunker Rake is for any golf course that wants the highest-quality product for their players,” says Nygren. “When players pick up a subpar or damaged bunker rake, it reflects poorly on the course. The Tour Pro assures this never happens. Plus, the price of this rake makes it affordable for even the tightest budgets.”
Gator Grip Handle—an all-new premium handle for bunker rakes, featuring a specially formulated polymer coating that adds durability and strength and is capable of withstanding even the worst weather conditions. Designed to be paired with the Tour Pro bunker rakes, the Gator Grip handle comes available in 60” (152 cm) and 72” (183 cm) lengths. Traditional composite handles and aluminum curved handles are also available.
“Gator Grip Handles put an end to all the problems commonly associated with degrading fiberglass rake handles,” says Jim Nygren. “The toughness of the polymer coating eliminates common rake problems like splintering, chipping, peeling and fading.”
Gator Grip Handles are available in green and brown and also fit Standard Golf’s Tour Smooth II rakes, in addition to Tour Pro bunker rakes. They also make a perfect premium replacement handle for Standard Golf’s Accuform® bunker rakes.
