Managing the driving range has many challenges, to put it lightly. You must coordinate picking with mowing, manage labor cost and availability, and facilitate ball management . . . and that’s just the beginning. What if robots could address these issues, and more? In this 60-minute webinar, Joe Fahey and Jake Vollbeer discuss how the use of robots can automate your driving range. They review what the robots are, requirements for use and the wide array of benefits that ensue. Be prepared to hear about the future of range management and what it takes to put Robots on the Range.
