Tilting Tees – an award winning idea

2.00pm 27th February 2004 - Corporate

Tilting Tees Ltd is a small; Edinburgh based company that manufactures and sells electrically and mechanically driven tilting platforms for golfers to practice hitting from sloping lies.
The company holds two patents, one for the design and commercial benefits of the practice platform and one for integrating the practice platform to a computer based golf simulator to replicate automatically the topography of the course simulation at that point on the golf course.
The commercial and training benefits of the idea mean that the platforms have excellent market potential and have been endorsed by the Scottish National Golf Academy at St Andrews and Scottish national coaches, Ian Rae and Spencer Henderson.
The platforms range in design from a fully mechanical unit that requires no power and is fully portable to semi powered and fully automatic units using electrically driven motors to power the slope and orientation of the platform. The units can be activated at the bay with tokens or linked to reception for remote control. These systems can also be incorporated to existing management software to track both total usage and usage by time, day and week.
Tilting Tees Ltd already has commercial agreements with companies in Australia, Canada and the United States and is in active negotiation with firms in South Africa, Malaysia and Europe to exploit these key markets.
Tilting Tees are installed at the World of Golf in Glasgow. Purchase prices start at £3,800 with revenue sharing and rental options also available.
