In these lean economic times, maximizing the life of your range ball inventory becomes even more critical. We all will agree that hitting surfaces and range balls are the two top considerations for your golfing customers. How then do we maximize the life and quality of the range golf balls we use at our facilities? ใบเจียร
A quality range ball: Any of the top brand range balls provide good experience for your customers. The brand you choose to buy has more to do with price, terms, promotions form the companies involved and tradition. Given the great pricing and terms the top companies offer there is no reason to consider buying pond balls or other second hand balls.
Buy enough: Make sure you have enough balls to support your busiest hours. At peak times, balls are hit much faster than you can recover.
More importantly, every time the ball gets hit it suffers a crash landing on your range, being picked up by your picker and bouncing around in a basket till the picker finishes its run, going through your ball washer, being transported mechanically or by hand to baskets or dispensers. The less number of times per day this cycle occurs the longer golf balls will remain serviceable and presentable.
Softening the ride: What are three actions you can take to extend the life of range balls?
First, leave the grass in the landing area as long as you can. Cushioning from plush grass results in the less damage to golf balls from landing.
Second, maintain your golf ball picker. Consider changing the discs on your ball picker regularly. Even the best picker discs wear out. I have seen discs that are very rough or that have small stones stuck in them. You do not want the surface of the discs to become abrasive wheels grinding the life out of range balls. Check the combs on your picker. Misaligned or lose combs can expose balls to the edges and actually peel the cover off an otherwise quality ball. Finally, make sure baskets are intact and not dragging on the ground.
Third, maintain your golf ball washer and golf ball conveyance systems. Make sure your ball washer is in top condition and kept clean. A worn and dirty brush causes undo wear-and-tear to balls. If the machine is not in top condition, either golf balls are being damaged or coming out dirty or they are being washed multiple times to get them clean. Either scenario does not bode well for maximizing the life of golf balls. Conveyors, ball lift systems and gravity feeds all cause some wear on golf balls. By insuring all this equipment is in top condition, you minimize the opportunity for damage.
