Think you’re a BigShot? This autumn AMS Robotics had the pleasure of installing our automated ball management system into London’s newest and biggest place to eat, drink, play and party. Enjoy interactive games with virtual targets that get everyone involved and give all skill levels a fair chance to win. Big Shots features superior digital ball tracking technology, meaning intense competition with addictive games and up to the second scoring. BigShots provide all the stats like ball speed, club speed, ball spin rate, launch angle and more, as well as the opportunity to record swing and game stats to give to your instructor. The first BigShots in the UK is based at Northwick Park, Harrow.

How BigShots automated ball management system works

AMS Robotics has supplied BigShots with four Belrobotics Ball Pickers and two AMS Robotics wash and return systems. The Belrobotics ball pickers automate the collecting of range balls on driving ranges. Ball Picker reduces the need for man and machine to manually collect the balls. In turn, staff can be relieved from this timely task and allow themselves to find longer for the other aspects of their job. Ball picker offers many benefits for driving ranges and facilities such as Big Shots. To name a few; they are electric, so fully carbon neutral, easily managed from a smartphone app and with their continuous operation they keep the range’s ball supply available.

For the ultimate golfing experience BigShots have also installed bespoke TrueStrike practice mats. With a gel-based hitting section, they replicate the feel of real turf allowing you to hit down and through the shot. These mats are used worldwide by professionals, giving you every chance to improve your game.

What BigShots have to say…

These robots are the future, our customers love them, they are a huge talking point. BigShots is a new level of golfing and entertainment. It’s an exciting and modern way for both amateur and professionals to enjoy the sport and the AMS Robotics automated ball management solution collects, washes and returns the balls quickly and efficiently so we can keep the bays full at all hours. On top of this, the robots are carbon neutral and will help us reach our environmental goals. BigShots is expanding, we are opening several sites throughout the UK and we will be bringing AMS along with us on the way. Exciting times ahead.

BigShots have astro turf on their range, but for driving ranges with real grass turf, AMS’s ball management system can be paired with Belrobotics robot mowers to form a completely automated range solution. Why not contact us for a demo.
