POWER TEE Enhances the Customer Experience at Worldwide Golf’s Roger Dunn Superstore

POWER TEE, the World Leader in Golf Range Automation, a company that has automated over 50% of the driving ranges in the United Kingdom which includes some of the most exclusive practice facilities in the world like St. Andrews, the Belfry, and Wentworth Club, has installed their automated teeing system in the Roger Dunn Superstore in Santa Ana, CA and the customer response has been extremely positive.

The Roger Dunn Superstore in Santa Ana, CA is a flagship of the Worldwide Golf chain which is centrally located in Orange County. It boasts a 2,500 square foot putting area, a custom golf fitting center, a golf repair shop, golf school classes and indoor hitting stalls which now feature several POWER TEE automated teeing systems.

According to Worldwide Golf President Al Morris, “We as a company strive to make the customer happy from our 90-Day 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee to free shipping and return shipping as well as carrying the best golf equipment and accessories possible. In our ongoing quest to make the customer happy we decided to install POWER TEES to enhance the customer’s experience in the hitting bays and it has been a success. Our in-store associates hear compliments daily on how much they enjoy hitting off them. Wow, is a common statement.”

The POWER TEE automated teeing system is known as the “automatic” choice for all driving ranges, practice facilities and now at retail in the indoor hitting stalls as it provides automatic feedback because golfers receive immediate feedback between balls as they aren’t interrupted by re-teeing.

“We were confident that the customers at Roger Dunn would like the POWER TEE hitting stations. When comparing different golf clubs before purchasing, Power Tee allows everything else to remain consistent, the only thing that needs to change is the golf club itself. This allows for an enhanced buying experience, helping the shopper and store associate advising to make the best choice of equipment,” said Martin Wyeth, CEO of POWER TEE.

The POWER TEE automated teeing system elevates any and all practice facilities as it combines the finest synthetic hitting mats which prevent jarring with a teeing system with multiple tee heights which not only improves a golfer’s swing but transforms an ordinary driving range into an extraordinary driving range.

“One interesting fact about the customers using the POWER TEE automated system is that they stay and hit longer. Our staff was surprised at the amount of golf balls being used hourly,” added Morris.
