A New Pinnacle for Humberstone Heights

9.30am 2nd April 2007 - Corporate

Humberstone Heights is an established golf driving range on the north side of Leicester. Dave Issitt is the owner of the driving range and has become a seasoned Power Tee operator over the last 5 years.

David was one of the true pioneers of automatic teeing when in 2001 he ordered four right handed Mark 1 Power Tee machines. Within three months he was in touch with Golf-Tech to order another nine machines including a left handed unit.

It was some time before Dave ordered another six machines in 2005 and by this time Power Tee had moved on to the Mark 2 all electric version. So impressed by the simplicity of operation of the new system was Dave, that he replaced his original Mark 1 machines with Mark 2s.

In his final foray to date, Dave has ordered a further 6 Power Tees which were installed in time for the emerging season. This takes Dave to a total of 25 Power Tees in thirty bays.

Martin Wyeth, managing director of Golf-Tech said, “Dave demonstrated a courage unusual in the range industry when he ordered his first Power Tees; we had no trading history, no proof of benefits and no track record in business at the point of our first deal. Dave has gone on to become one of our best customers.” Martin continued, “The long term benefits of Power Tee® are now widely known. There can be only one reason for Dave to place five successive orders for the same product, it’s good for his business!”

Dave Issitt said, “I have tried the other products on the market in the hope of making some savings, but the cheap alternatives proved to be a false economy. Power Tee is the only viable product on my busy driving range.”
