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.....
We (Harlow Hill Golf Society) are a relatively new (2 years old) golf society, predominantly based out of North/West Yorkshire, however, we do have a couple of members based in Scotland and the Midlands. We originally set up as a group of friends, following retirement from an amateur football team, Harlow Hill FC in Harrogate. The natural order of things took place and we now try to find our successes, failures, delights and frustrations on the Golf course as opposed to the football field.
We have had 14 members in our first 2 years but are looking to build on this and are keen to recruit anyone looking to play some semi regular golf within a society outside of a club environment. We have a good range of golfers, mainly at the higher end of the scale, ranging from 16 through to 28 and a couple still learning. We try to promote fairly regular games/matches with cup competitions and aim for 2 trips a year, either domestically or abroad.
Any interest please let me know and I'd happy to share more info.
Well, I've only gone and won a Golf Holiday in Spain !!!!
Was going to blather on about where but it's probably easier to read it yourselves...
I entered a competition on Liam Harrisons You Tube Channel ( GolfvLogsUK ) and my name got pulled out of the hat, never played outside the county, never mind another country..
Any advice would be appreciated, not sure on how to get my clubs out there, or how the hell do I get them on the plane, no idea what I might forget lol...
