Chi Chi Rodriguez Driving Range Distances Itself from the Competition with Power Tee Installation.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
“There are driving ranges a lot closer to my house than Chi Chi’s, but after trying out the new Power Tees, making the drive will be well worth it”.
September 08, 2022 - Power Tee installed 22 units at Chi Chi Rodriguez Driving Range in early June. Since the installation, golfers at Chi Chi’s have enjoyed the new improvements made to the facility. At the Power Tee grand opening, customers were amazed by the new technology they were using. One customer said, “This is incredible, I have never seen anything like this. I think all driving ranges should put these in. Another golfer stated, “There are driving ranges a lot closer to my house than Chi Chi’s, but after trying out the new Power Tees, making the drive will be well worth it”.
Power Tee creates a more enjoyable experience for all levels of golfers. For kids and beginners, it gives them the ability to get the ball in the air and focus in on the basics of their swing. For the single handicap golfers that are trying to shape the ball or focus in on the mechanics of their swing, they can do so easily by never having to get out of position to tee up a ball. Senior golfers looking to get the most out of their practice flock to Power Tee because it helps in protecting their backs and avoiding any wrist jarring with the top-of-the-line mats. One senior golfer stated, “These new machines are cool. I think a lot of golfers my age will appreciate the addition of Power Tee”.
Al Arrigoni, Director of Golf at Chi Chi Rodriguez Driving Range had this to say on a Bay New 9 Special about the recent installation of Power Tee, “I appreciate the ease at which Power Tee can be used. Power Tee is a lot of fun, and it is technology in the game, which the game is evolving to. We have had a lot of positive feedback so far and we look forward to more.”
Power Tee CEO Martin Wyeth said, “Chi Chi Rodriguez Driving Range is one of the most notable golf practice facilities in all of Florida. We are excited to partner with James and Al and the rest of their team. With the new addition of Power Tee, golfers are going to come from all over the Tampa area to use Power Tee and get the chance to practice unlike any other facility in the nearby area”.
