Power Tee Joins PGA Supplier Programme

8.42am 17th October 2008 - Corporate

The PGA has invited Power Tee to become an official supplier to its growing portfolio of national and international branded facilities.

It will join the PGA Official Supplier programme which has been established to support the Belfry-based association’s expanding global network of branded facilities in the UK, China, India, Russia, Spain and Turkey.

“We’re delighted to be working with Power Tee,” said Robert Maxfield, PGA director of property and development.

“Automated teeing devices are fast-becoming a must-have for golf academies and ranges around the world and it is important that all facilities carrying the PGA brand are at the forefront of the latest trends.”

Power Tee chief executive Martin Wyeth added, “We share the PGA’s commitment to growing and promoting the game and are delighted to have the opportunity to work closer with them.

“When I started automation in the UK every ball hit at practice ranges was teed up by hand, now Power Tee tees up more than three million balls per day in 10 countries.

“From Power Tees perspective the driving range really is the gateway to golf for most people and without friendly welcoming ranges offering an inviting, cost and time effective way to learn the basics of how to hit a golf ball the sport would be in a much poorer position than it is today.

“Power Tee grows the client base of a driving range by making the practice experience more fun, more rewarding and easier and we look forward to achieving similar success with PGA branded facilities.”

More than 1,200 of the PGA’s 7,500 membership are based overseas working in more than 70 countries with many employed in coaching and director of golf roles at PGA branded resorts.
