Age should be an optional profile item that users can view if they care enough.
I think there's something "odd" about searching for a golf buddy as if you're searching for someone to go on a 7AM date with. "I want my golf buddy to be 6'-6'4, dark hair/dark eyes, athletic build and 200lbs, 18-25 years old and be a 10-15hc!". Weird, imho, and I think most people would agree age isn't that important when you're looking for someone to pair up with.
I appreciate your feedback. Our app can be used in many different ways...
1) Someone looking to network with others in their industry
2) For specific type of golfers you are looking to play with...age, handicap, game time, game day, tees, the type of game...etc
3) If you want to use it to find someone, like you would a dating app, you can certainly try that as well
People these days use social platforms for a myriad of reasons to "meet" someone before they actually meet in person, so I don't see why golf should be any different. You are going to randomly get paired with someone on the course, why not at least give yourself the best chance of finding that ideal golfing buddy?
