Golf Social Networking

Review of

Sponsored Post: is a a Social Network for Golfers. At you can view a free online yardage book, post your scores, maintain your handicap, look at greens guides, and talk with your fellow golfers.

I have a feeling that contributor Jason Wulterkens and all of the faithful readers of his weekly column, The Primary Cut, will truly enjoy everything that has to offer. At, logged in users can meet new golfers that play at their courses, track their handicap and statistics, share photos, blog posts, and forum threads, and view course yardages and flyovers.

I personally think that the yardage maps are awesome. incorporates Google Maps technology, which can then be downloaded into your Google Earth program. Comments about each course and additional uploaded photos give golfers an understanding of a new course that they are about to play or an alternative angle to courses that are regularly frequented. In addition, a listing of nearby courses and upcoming events adds to the totality of the experience one encounters at

As a fan of social networking, novel Web 2.0 ideas, and the world of sports, I think that does an excellent job of incorporating all three elements into a professional and aesthetically pleasing package.

So in other words you’ve decided to censor our thoughts on this piece because you’re being paid?

Sounds a bit iffy Darren, not all of what you deleted was spam.

If we can only post positives about the sponsor and can’t debate about it compared to a similar product what is the point in having a comment section? Or at least put up a disclaimer stating only positive comments will be accepted.

All comments are allowed and encouraged. That being said, spam will be deleted. The company that paid for the post had people within its confines spamming this comments area with fictitious names to build its site’s credibility. That type of activity is a waste of space and will not remain on this site.
