When the lockdown was announced in the UK on 23rd March, none of us knew what would become of the golf industry, writes Ross Jones, Sales & Marketing Director. Would it survive? Yes, pretty sure of that. Would facilities re-open? Nobody knew. Would it be better than ever? No chance!
Who could have envisaged the impact on the golf industry that we are seeing today?
With no end in sight for months, the very thought of golf courses and driving ranges re-opening was hard to imagine. As a company, we were preparing for the worst and hoping for the best and we didn’t know if the best would be particularly good! The name of the game was survival, batten down the hatches and hope it blows over quickly.
The truth is it hasn’t blown over. Covid-19 is still playing a big part in how we live our day to day lives. Thankfully for all concerned, golf is playing a major part in physical and mental health. Amazingly this has given the golf industry the boost it has been longing for and for all of us in the industry, the boost it deserves.
So what have Power Tee been doing? Well, quite a lot. 10 installations since March and the order book is still growing.

Fast forward 5 months and there are no signs of golf slowing down, new people are joining all over the world and people that fell out of love with the game have realised what they have been missing.
All of our installations have been for one reason; capitalising on the opportunity that is being presented.
New Power Tee customers want to add value and improve their offering, customers adding more are keeping up with the increased demand and shortening waiting times and customers upgrading, are raising the level of their facility again to attract the new and retain the existing.
