Commercial RG3 Robot Mower for Greenskeepers!

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009


Mowing fairways and greens may get easier for those lucky greenskeepers who have access to this new RG3 robot mower.  I think it’s a great idea, there’s way too much danger involved if humans keep mowing the lawn, especially if players are mis-hitting their golf ball to the mowers.

The RG3 (Robotic Greens Mower 3) from Precise Path debuted a few weeks ago at the 2009 Golf Industry Show in New Orleans. It’s a robot lawnmower that uses two lead acid batteries to run its 24-volt DC motor, and one to run its computer, offering about three hours of mowing before needing to be recharged.

“Our robot could provide the human precision necessary to upkeep, actually better than a human is capable of, and not costing the large amount in intensive labor costs,” Precise Path co-founder, president, and CTO Doug Traster told CNET News in a phone interview.

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

Well, as a pro golfer who did go through high school and college golf, this seems like a great opportunity for any of you young golfers out there who’s dream is trying to go pro.

It looks like there’s even a PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship.  Of course you’d have to be a minority to qualify but it’s a great opportunity and I highly suggest you find a way to enter the tournament or at least attend the Golf Career Expo to find out about it.

The 14th Business of Golf Career Expo, which introduces student-athletes competing in the PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship to the golf industry, will be conducted May 8, at the PGA Education Center in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

Featuring 20 golf associations or companies, the Business of Golf Career Expo will be conducted from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m., a day prior to the 22nd PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship, May 9-11, on the Tom Fazio-designed Ryder and Wanamaker Courses at The PGA Golf Club.
