AMS robotics continues to build its growing reputation and success with its outfield robot technology. Recent highlights include a installation at Stevenage Golf Centre, a trial at Top Golf and an upcoming install at Wycombe Heights Golf Centre.

A UK first in automated outfield maintenance, AMS’s driving range robotic solution automates the traditional costly and time-consuming tasks associated with ball management and outfield mowing. It does this via a simple monthly contract called Range Ball Plan its cost is based on the ball output of your facility.

A standard driving range installation involves the install of a perimeter wire, responsible for emitting a magnetic field that guides the robot lawn mower and ball collector around the outfield. Two charge stations, one for each robot. An automated ball wash and return system, which washes and transports the range balls back to the dispenser.

Alongside the robot technology new robot friendly targets are often introduced, to help revamp the outfield and enhance golfers practice experience.
