Any time it displaces a working man or woman, I don't like it.

It's like all these self checkout machines in stores. If I have to do something for free that they used to pay a person to do, why aren't the prices lower?

My home club demoed one but decided against them. Based on what I heard the mower would've basically required a supervisor to follow it. But when I was officiating at another club, the staff were really pleased with the mowers they had. The mowers can work throughout the day without disturbing players and the rural club had had trouble hiring seasonal workers.

That being said, the mower struggled with steep slopes, which might've been the reason our club turned them down.

My old club was the first in Norway to use Mowers, and never looked back, when it gets blocked it just reverses or turns around and moves on, And Now
The owner , who is prolific at introducing new ideas, 3 tier membership, incl. free range balls, and now, Floodlight golf, he has set up lighting on 9 holes,
its got mixed revues
