On the golf course, finding the water can be good, especially if it's natural drinking water
I have to admit that I’m a little like Lou Holtz. I’m not crazy about water as a beverage because it has no taste. Or as Holtz says, if it does, there’s probably something wrong with it. But I do try to drink water on the golf course, or at least alternate it with other beverages, because diet sodas and sports drinks all the time can’t be good for you, right?
So when I was presented with the opportunity to try something a little different, I accepted. The product in question is Biliner, a natural spring water that comes in two versions, Royal Class Spring Water and Biliner Premium Mineral Water.
Biliner Water as a procdut has been around for 350 years. it occurs naturally. It’s simply bottled from the volcanic, mineral-spring source on the noble Lobkowicz estates in royal Bilina in the Northern Bohemia region of what is today the Czech Republic. Biliner Healing Spa was founded in the early 1700s, and bottle-based distribution began by the middle of the century.
A number of PGA Tour players – Tiger Woods included – and European Tour players can be seen drinking this stuff on the course and afterwards as well. It goes like this: Royal Spring Water during play; Mineral Water during recovery.
The mineral water is believed to have healing properties, but I must admit it is an acquired taste. But you get used to it after a while, and it’s almost addictive. The spring water is very smooth and tastes as good as water can taste. If you’re already a water drinker, you’ll love it.
Anyway, Biliner can be purchased in more than 400 stores in over 20 states from Louisiana and Texas west to Arizona and California. It’s available at places like Albertsons, Central Market, Sprouts Farmers Market, Rouses and Huckleberry?s Natural Market.
