The Robots are Coming

If you’re at the club today, you may see robotic mowers operating around the clubhouse/putting green/driving range tee. We’ll be doing a demo to see how the mowers operate on our property, specifically around the clubhouse lawns.

This technology is nothing new, but getting a distributor with support is. Implementing automated mowers can be beneficial for many reasons, mostly to re-allocate our labor to better your experience. On Wednesdays, it usually takes 4 staff members 2 hours to mow the rough around the clubhouse/entrances/putting green/driving range tee. We then move onto the golf course and mow all of the tee surrounds, fescue walkways/edges. If robotics can mow the clubhouse areas, we can immediately start on #1 tee, and stay ahead of play. That’s a winning situation.

We’ll be doing some measurements today, looking at signal strengths, sightlines, repeater mounting options, etc., to get a better idea of how it works on our property. We’ll then decide if it’s worth the investment to implement.

    Just a quick note on how magnificent the golf course looks. The weather gods finally rewarded your good work with enough rain to establish the fescue. the course looks fabulous.

    Bring on the Robots!
