On Saturday, Sept. 23, Fairbanks Ranch Country Club installed its first robot golf club member.
The Rob-OT uses artificial intelligence capabilities to give golfers the opportunity to improve their games and assist in equipment fitting in addition to playing a course itself—it can get out of bunkers, putt and hit any imaginable tee shot, including a hole-in-one.
Rob-OT is considered “the most accurate golfer in the world” and the first robot capable of going out onto the golf course. All major golf product manufacturers use the robots for testing –the US Golf Association also has two for qualifying equipment, as does the European golf body R&A.
