The Setting:

Picture a prestigious golf course, renowned for its impeccable turf and challenging features. However, despite its fame, the course struggles with maintaining turf quality, dealing with labor-intensive tasks, and keeping up with weather challenges. Enter Autmow’s robotic mowers.

The Challenge:

Traditional heavy mowers, like the Toro Sidewinder and John Deere 7400, have been integral to the course’s maintenance but come with a weighty downside. Weighing over 2100 lbs, they contribute to turf wear, compaction, and inconsistent playing conditions. Furthermore, the manpower and maintenance costs associated with these mowers are substantial, detracting from the course’s overall efficiency and beauty.

The Transformation with Autmow:

  • Revolutionized Turf Quality:
    Autmow utilizes the Husqvarna EPOS 550 and Husqvarna Ceora robotic mowers. They range in weight from a mere 30.4 lbs to 160 lbs, drastically reducing turf wear and soil compaction. Their light weight and precision allow for enhanced turf quality around greens, bunkers, and water features, where traditional mowers struggled the most.
  • Consistent Playability:
    The robotic mowers maintain a consistent height of cut, offering golfers uniform playability every day. Unlike traditional mowers that create fluctuations in grass height, Autmow’s robots ensure a pristine and predictable course.
  • All-Weather Efficiency:
    Rain or shine, Autmow’s robots keep working. Their reduced weight allows operation in wet conditions, preventing the course from falling behind on maintenance during rainy seasons.
  • Manpower Optimization:
    The elimination of mower operators frees up staff for detailed landscaping projects, enhancing the overall beauty and condition of the course.
  • Reduced Maintenance Costs:
    Swapping out blades on robotic mowers is quicker and cheaper than maintaining traditional reel mowers, offering a superior quality of cut at a fraction of the cost.
  • Flexibility During Events:
    The robots can be programmed to work around important golf events, minimizing disruption during the day and catching up at night, a convenience traditional mowers can’t match.

The Success:

The course transforms. Turf quality soars, playability becomes consistently excellent, and the course is always event-ready. Golfers notice and appreciate the enhanced experience, while the course enjoys reduced costs and improved efficiency.

The Future:

As Autmow prepares to showcase its revolutionary technology at the GCSAA Conference in Phoenix, it stands as a testament to the potential of robotic mowing in transforming golf courses worldwide.
