Power Tee claims that its automated ball delivery system is a great ‘business driver’ bringing increased footfall; increased ball tariffs; increased facility revenues; and improved range aesthetics. Power Tee customers are happy to confirm these claims.
Stephen Coakley the owner of Darnford Moors Golf Club and Director of the Robert Rock Golf Academy, said, “My initial scepticism of automation meant that it took us a while to commit to Power Tee installed on our driving range. This was down to our own belief in our business being strong and what added benefit would Power Tee bring.
“We had 10 Power Tees installed in February this year and we are happy to say that our original scepticism was misplaced.
“Our regular range users have enjoyed the mats and comment on how good they are to practice from, the surfaces are as good as they have hit from and that the automated part has also been beneficial for a more concise practice with their hybrids, fairway woods and drivers.
“The new range users have commented on how impressive our range looks, which has supported our view that by having Power Tee on site we have improved the feel and the aesthetics of our facility.
“Whilst we have noticed the obvious commercial benefits of having Power Tee, it is ultimately what statement we have made about our facility, our clients young, old, regular user and new to our facility are all enjoying the enhancements we have made and are thanking us for providing them with a great place to practice.
“I would recommend any other sceptics out there to see the team from Power Tee and look at how they can enhance your facility.”
Meanwhile… at Altrincham Golf Range
Paul Woods, PGA Professional and owner of Altrincham Golf Range, said, “At Altrincham we are trying to provide a facility that appeals to all levels of golfer, from beginners to aspiring tour players. Our head Coach Dan Whittacker is a well respected and has pupils coming from far and wide for lessons here.
“Our facility has benefitted from having Power Tee for over 5 years and whilst I inherited them initially from the previous owner, I have been only to pleased to upgrade to the latest version of Power Tee in July 2013.
“Whilst the bean counters in accounts were looking at all contracts and where we should be cutting our cloth, upgrading with the new Power Tee’s was a no brainer for me as my customers love using them, we got a new system with great enhanced features and we are saving on what we were previously spending, I would call that a win, win!
“We have 12 new Power Tees on site and the response has been fantastic, our customers love the new look and the fact that there are no ball jambs, they have a more fluent practice. For as long as our customers are happy and spending money with us we are happy.
“Power Tee have been most helpful with the post installation training, not only the product knowledge but the insight into different commercial opportunities, the different competitions, skills test, ways of utilising our whole facility not just the range. My team and I have benefitted from spending time with Matt and going through ideas from junior coaching to covering ladies, beginners and existing golfers. We feel that we are enhancing our range with Power Tee and their valuable information.
“If you haven’t got Power Tee on your range, I would certainly recommend you see them and find out for yourself what they are about as it is not just the equipment but the wealth of industry knowledge that we found valuable to our business. Long may our relationship with Power Tee continue!”
