Power Tee Extends Arrangement With Armory Golf Center

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 extended its arrangement with the top golfing entertainment center in North Carolina – the Armory Golf Center.

Proprietor Keith Hunter has spent the best of the past year redeveloping the property and turning it into a first-rate, family oriented, practice facility which boasts a state-of-the-art driving range that features the world class automated POWER TEE teeing system. It also provides green grass hitting bays and sand traps for short game practice.

According to POWER TEE CEO Martin Wyeth, “POWER TEE is delighted to extend its relationship and agreement with the Armory Golf Center or more importantly with Keith Hunter. His facility and its ideals are so in alignment with the PGA’s vision of how to keep golfers in the game. Our companies completely complement each other.”

The Armory Golf Center sits prestigiously on 20-acres which are brightly lit for nighttime fun. An 18-hole miniature golf course provides an atmosphere for the entire family as the clubhouse invites everybody in. It features free Wi-Fi, flat screen televisions, food and beverages as well as after hour drinks.

According to Hunter, “When we redeveloped this property the objective was to integrate the best possible instruction possible with the best practice facility possible and POWER TEE was a part of the plan. This automated teeing system allows our golfers to repeat their swings without any interruptions or re-teeing which provides the best practice possible plus our golfers love it. We’ve been told repeatedly that the POWER TEE hitting stations are more fun to hit off than the regular mats which contributes to our ‘entertainment’ factor here at Armory Golf Center. Additionally, our golfers hit more balls than we imagined which helps our bottom line.”

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 to an extraordinary driving range.

Instructors appreciate the “Automatic” instruction as they don’t have to constantly correct the grip, stance, or alignment. Students swing away and get better – FASTER.
