Royal Oak Golf Center sees 68,000 balls purchased in one day after increasing size of Power Tee system
Glenn Pulice, General Manager of Royal Oak Golf Center in Detroit, Michigan is excited to continue their partnership with Power Tee after renewing a contract for five more years and adding thirteen machines to bring their total to forty-five total Power Tee units.
Royal Oak Golf Center is widely recognized as one of Michigan’s premiere golf practice facilities. One of the many factors that make Royal Oak such a great facility was the implementation of Power Tee back in July of 2017 when they decided to install thirty-two machines on the driving range. Fast forward five years and Royal Oak is renewing these machines for another five years and adding thirteen additional Power Tee units to bring their total to forty-five, making them one of the biggest Power Tee customers in the country.
When asked what made him want to install Power Tee, General Manager Glenn Pulice said many things factored into them putting in Power Tee on the driving range. Glenn said, “There were quite a few things I liked about Power Tee when I first saw it, number one being the customer experience. Having the ball teed up for people I thought was cool and super easy to use. Glenn noted that he has been able to accommodate more golfers with Power Tee now on the range.
Power Tee has helped speed up the driving range process immensely. Royal Oak is seeing far more customers come in and out as people can hit balls at a faster pace. “Customers love these machines, for a lot of first timers they haven’t seen anything like it and want to give it a try. For some of our other customers, they just enjoy the ease with which it can be used”. Glenn stated that an NHL player from the Detroit Red Wings is always hitting off Power Tee, he loves the fact that he can come in and hit balls without putting any strain on his back.
Since the new upgrade of Power Tees at Royal Oak Golf Center, they have seen previous single day ball sales records shattered. Three days after the new installation, Royal Oak saw 68,000 balls purchased in one day, breaking the previous record by more than 6,000 golf balls. Royal Oak has seen multiple days now of ball sales upwards of 60,000 since upgrading to more Power Tee units.
Martin Wyeth Owner of Power Tee is very excited about the recent success at Royal Oak Golf Center. He says, “I am thrilled to hear of the numbers that Royal Oak is doing on a day-to-day basis since extending their partnership with us. 68,000 balls in one day is amazing! We appreciate Glenn and everyone at Royal Oak for renewing with us and can’t wait to see all their continued success”.
