Ball management at driving ranges is usually not at the top list of importance for most golfers that use the range. However it is most definitely a huge issue for range owners like myself. The constant battle to make sure the balls are collected every night and are ready again for when the range opens again the next day, is often very time consuming and resource draining. The outfield robots are a truly unique concept, that attempt to address this issue with Range Ball Plan and as such were a welcomed addition to the facility. It’s been about year since installation and overall I’d say the last year has been a somewhat mixed. The health of the outfield has improved and the when the balls are being collected its been tremendous, however with variables such as poor weather impacting the robots, it has been a struggle at times. That being said Phil and his team have been very proactive in trying to resolve issues, they have a strong desire to make the system work making the support service they offer very good.
