JM Lexus in Margate Installs Putting Green, Gives Car Salesmen a Good Name

If you're among the majority of people who want to crawl out of their skin while waiting for car servicing or any sort of time-consuming auto-related paperwork, you're in luck. The folks at JM Lexus in Margate heard about your automobile angst and addressed it accordingly, with an antidote in the form of a putting green.

While it's no spa or Buddhist temple, it's a nice stress reliever in an unexpected location. It can also be a decisionmaker or perhaps a gambling game: Loser buys winner a Lexus.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, a pro shop adjacent to the 3,200-square-foot putting green will sell golf accessories. Lessons can also be arranged, meaning that if you're newly wealthy, you can acquire the vehicle and golf skills to go with your status in a one-stop shop.

"We want to make our store a destination," Jim Dunn, vice president and general manager at JM Lexus, said in a statement. "If our guests can leave here saying they had a great time while getting their cars serviced, we are achieving our goal." And a noble goal that is!
