”Gary, for the last two months you have had a 42-meter Huxley Premier Tee Turf installed on Yourdriving range, what do you think about it?”
”I think of myself as a very traditional professional, I like to hear the strike and I like to see the divot. So I would always prefer to practice on grass .To teach that way gives the player the same feeling as on the course. We play on grass so I like to practice on grass wherever possible.
That said, the installation of the new tee line has raised our range to another level! The range is now a lot tidier, the players practice from the correct position and it has allowed us to utilise more of the tee and we are now able to add additionalfacilities, ie a new practice putting and chipping green. We are now able to get more use from the area we have available in a safer enviroment for the player. Huxley Premier Tee Turf definitely has a much more realistic feel than traditional rubber mats.
Huxley Premier Tee Turf is very honest, it gives you a very realisticbounce. It is my guess that 90% of our players are very pleased with the new initiative.”
