My name is Alan - I have been involved in promoting golf for many many years and first contacted Darren at Golfshake circa 2007. Darren has done a great job getting the site to what it is today.
I am here now to rock my own boat - I want your business !
I am working on a concept called MediGolf. This is basically a way to track your own training and tuition and to track what YouTube tuition that you are doing.
There is little to it - it is just a case of bookmarking your learning and commenting on it in your workbook.
You could elect to keep a word processing document - but this is not portable.
My method is to use a free www service called Protopage - http://protopage.com - it is really great and is really simple . I use Protopage on a daily basis - it is part of my on-line life style.
I have recently been to the Google Garage to see what they are doing in Manchester. For my community I have created a Protopage website which contains course reviews and their learning content. See http://protopage.com/googlegarage
In my opinion every golf professional should have a Protopage account to communicate active club business - a great tool, the best of the WWW.
Whilst on the Google Garage you can see my learning for creating Responsive Websites - Red Octopus. This technology takes minutes to learn and should be the standard for golf.
Another way to get to Red Octopus is to go to http://protopage.com/redoctopus where I have a bookmark to my primary site. There are just two components of what I calll hybrid websites, other components include Wix, Wordpress, 123Reg, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Hybrid web development is so so easy - it is well in the capabilities of your average golf professional.
If you are a golf professional wanting to improve his www presence - or simply a man starting up his own business. Simply ask and I will support you.
Thank You for reading.....
I have started a venture called The Golf Hub. http://thegolfhub.net where I am collecting golf tuition and information about golf professionals that have a presence on the www.
I hope that one day Darren will be kind enough to place a link on Golf shake to it.
Please take a look and tell me how I should structure it.
So I'm 19 and been playing golf years but only recently through the app I've got a handicap. It's currently 13 but coming down quite quickly. I'm looking at entering a few local amateur tournaments and was wondering if my handicap certificate through golf shake is enough to enter or if it would have to be an official certificate through being a member of a club? Also on the applications it asks what club I'm a member at.
