If you love golf, and have spent any time at all on the internet, then chances are you know what a social golf network is. With millions of golf lovers around the world, it's no wonder these networks and groups are popping up all over the internet, on an almost daily basis.
What is a Golf Network?
Think of a social golf network like Facebook, but exclusively for golfers. It is a meeting place online to connect with like-minded people from all over the world. You are not limited to meeting people in your local area. If you live in a small town you may not have the opportunity to connect with other golf enthusiasts like yourself. Maybe your spouse or other family members don't share your passion for the game and you'd like to share your stories with others.
What is the Purpose of a Golf Network?
The main goal of a social golf network is to bring golfers together from all over the world and from all walks of life. You can connect with someone halfway across the country, or on the other side of the equator. The internet is known for bringing people closer together, and golf networks are just one more reason that the Net is so popular. Whether you want to learn new strategies to improve your game, you want to find a local golfing buddy, or you want to sell some of your equipment, you can do it all on a golfing community.
How Much does it Cost?
There is no cost to join an online golf network. All you need is a computer and an internet connection. Find one or more groups that you want to be part of, and join by entering your email address and name. You may also be prompted to choose a unique screen name.
Who Can Join?
Anyone is free to join a golf network, regardless of age, race, religion, political stance, etc. You get the idea. If you love to golf, you have met the criteria for joining an online community. You are not limited to just joining one or two; sign up for as many as you wish.
Once you have joined a golf network, you will be amazed at how many people share the same interests that you do. Post an introduction of yourself, along with a picture if you wish. You can even post some pictures of some of your favourite golf courses that you've played at. Look for some tips and strategies on how you can improve your game, or post some of your own tips to help others. Learn how others cope with the withdrawals of golf during the winter; or find out where some of the best golf vacation destinations are. The possibilities are endless. You will make new friends from afar, and you may even find some local friends to hook up with and meet for a game. Golf networks offer a unique way for avid golfers to find one another and support each other.
