Celebrating 40 years in business, pioneering Ken Whites a market leader in golf signage with the most comprehensive range of products/materials in the UK, has launched a new edition to their range of environmentally friendly products including a collection of recycled plastic signs.

The new ‘Heritage’ signs embrace the history of golf courses and the range of professional signs are designed to enhance the profile of your club…

Golf courses are a rich resource for wildlife and Ken Whites has developed and designed these creative products to help your club focus on the increasingly important issue of protecting the environment. It includes individual signs to denote points of interest around the course to enhance the profile of the club and add real value to the playing experience utilising professional, bespoke signage, designed to be in keeping with the style of the golf course.

English Nature’s chief scientist, Dr Keith Duff, who is a keen golfer, said, “Golf courses, contrary to popular belief, can provide vital green corridors and oases for wildlife amongst an ever encroaching tide of developed land and mono-cultured farmlands. Often relatively minor changes to course management can deliver huge benefits to wildlife.”

Ken Whites’ philosophy is to reinforce the environmental message and to encourage the use of materials sourced from sustainable materials wherever possible. The range of recycled plastics not only contributes to the environmental message but is also a very durable and practical solution. The sustainable ‘Natural Heritage’ range includes timber products with recycled composite graphic panel:-

• Hardwood
• Softwood
• Aluminium
• Stainless Steel
• Etched Zinc
• Cast Bronze
• Glass
• Stone and much, much more

“The golf industry as a whole has become much more aware of environmental issues – it is now more or less a matter of routine that new golf projects provide some form of environmental assessment,” enthuses Martyn Lane, golf sales manager for Ken Whites.

“As a company, we see it as our role to harness the environmental vision of your golf course with a view to projecting it outwardly, making it an interesting and stimulating part of your corporate image. Members and visitors alike are inspired by the attention to detail and the clarity of the message.”

Ken Whites are happy to visit any golf course and carry out a free, no obligation evaluation, looking at all the local environmental issues and putting forward ideas for projecting these outwardly.
