Wow. A day after I get webcountryclub.com up and running (just a basic page) and post about it on the bog here, I make some progress.
A client of mine is a local pro. He is a very cool and nice guy. Today I let him know about webcountryclub.com and he thought the idea was cool. Then he mentioned that he was going to be the 2005 president of the local PGA Section! He was telling that unlike previous years he wants to get “the word” out more on local PGA and county golf course events. I told him we could use webcountryclub.com as a sounding board and I’d be happy to post info for the local PGA section and the county run/owned golf courses.
I also suggested to him that he and his other PGA pro buddies could be the featured instructors for the golf instruction section of the site. In turn they would get referrals and more clients. Publicity and more possible clients for them and “content” for webcountryclub.com. Win win.
During this conversation he mentioned a local firm that does golf stat tracking had worked out a relationship with the local PGA section to do tracking of their students. I plan on getting in touch with these folks and trying to work out an arrangement for them to be the official stat tracker for webcountryclub.com.
A lot can happen in 24 hours!
I’m quite an addict when it comes to certain things. When I dive into something, it is all the way and head first! I had fun setting up Pro Sound Blog, and a few other sites. I now have started on a new web journey: WEB COUNTRY CLUB (www.webcountryclub.com).
I’ve registered the web name, arranged and host and now just switched the name servers over (that’s web Greek for “you should be able to surf there now”). There’s nothing there yet but there will be.
I envision a golfer’s site with various cool golf related items such as News (pga, lpga, golf business or whatever), the golf blog of course, course reviews by me (and other users), travel, web forum groups/discussions, stat tracker, buy/sell/trade, and whatever other features YOU my friend suggest that I like.
I’ve already done a bit of research on ecommerce and may set up some online shopping there. I’ve made a connection for gear and we’ve come to a very tentative verbal agreement. My connection is a dealer in all the MAJOR brands like Titleist, Callaway, Taylor Made, Hogan and more. I’ll basically move product for him on the web at my site! This may all be WAY down the road but to quote Gary McCord “you have to have a plan.”
So here is your assignment my golf friend: Think about what YOU would like to have on your favorite golf related web site. When you have it, let me know your ideas. Thanks!
Flo, gin is a sin. I golf.
Turn this sentence around backwards and what does it spell?
Santa was wondering what golf gear he can drop by for me this year on the 25th…
My golf gear is top of the line. I may skimp at the grocery store and buy generic raisin bran, but I don’t skimp on my golf gear. There’s not a club in my bag I’d replace. I have 4 golf bags, countless accessories, tons of premium balls (ProV1, HX Black), a Sun Mountain 3 wheeler…. I could go on.
When my wife asks me what golf stuff she can get me for my birthday or Christmas I tell her don’t bother… Besides, I have pro shop money anyway.
So I guess there really isn’t anything golf gear related for my Christmas list. Quite frankly, I don’t think Santa can afford any of the golf gear I’d be asking for anyway. Now if Santa wanted to sponser a golf trip to say…Augusta, I’d be interested…
Didn’t I predict this outcome? Ahhhh matchplay. I’ve never felt more intense, nervous and exhilarated as I have during match play. You will find out a lot about yourself during matchplay. Matchplay is definitely the best way to find a champion whether it be at your local club, or the BBII.
The match tonight was very gutty. I’m glad it was tight, and even went to two extra holes. The match balanced on two putts that ended up hanging on the edge of the cup. I’m not going to go into a play by play here, but I’ll say that the guy I wanted to win did. (Not necessarity the one I expected to win). Plus these two both played very well. They were both under par I believe. At least they didn’t look like the hacks from BB1.
Kip appears to be a very genuine guy. His swing isn’t picture perfect but he seems to have a knack for hitting a great shot at just the right time. I hope he does well with his new car, new dough and 4 exemptions. I’m sure he and one or two other BBII players will get some sponsors.
Can I get a sponsor?
