Ponte Vedra-based Power Tee experiencing growth spurt


Leaders of the Ponte Vedra-based company Power Tee said the business is growing exponentially in the wake of support from local residents Jim and Mike Furyk, marketing agency On Ideas and a small group of local investors. 

Installations are under way, the company said, of its automated golf ball-teeing system at Wedges and Woods in Augusta, Georgia, Westminster Island Green in Maryland, Oasis Golf Club in Mesquite, Nevada, Valley Golf Center in Connecticut and 62 machines at the McGolf Driving Range in Boston. 

According to the company, interest has been fueled by the 30 percent average increase in revenue that has been experienced at the last three case-study installations, which comprise Bogeys Sports Park in Virginia, Royal Oak in Detroit and Deer Creek in Florida. 

Company leaders said the McGolf installation moves the mantle of the largest Power Tee installation from the busiest range in Europe (Beverley Park in London with 58 machines) to the U.S.  Power Tee said it helped the London mega-range grow from 10 million balls per year to 15 million and has been present at the facility for more than 10 years. McGolf is now looking forward to 2018 being its busiest year since construction in 1980.  

In addition to public ranges, Power Tee said its systems are now being widely adopted at clubs and courses wishing to align themselves with top European destinations such as St. Andrews, The Belfry, Wentworth Club, Celtic Manor and 2018 Ryder Cup destination, Le Golf National.
