Become a Supporter!

37 posts in this topic

Since you're a member here there is a good chance you're addicted to this great game as I am and want to stay connected to golf even when you're off the course.  The Sand Trap is a great place to come to share your opinions, get in depth information about the golf swing, read up on the latest equipment and just be around fellow golf nuts.

To enhance your experience on The Sand Trap I'd like to invite everyone to become a Supporter Member.  The Supporter Program is ideal for individual golfers who want to get more out of the community, the forums, and our Sponsors and Insiders. We're exited about it so much that in our recent President's Cup Contest , the winner becomes a Supporter Member until the end of February.  Becoming a Supporter Member helps us continue to provide a quality platform and enviroment for all of us to enjoy.  The site is getting better and better and we've got a lot more contests on the way.  So sign up and show support for the Sand Trap community and your fellow members.

For an annual subscription of $39, a small price to pay, you get these additional features:

  • Browse The Sand Trap .com ad-free if you choose (increases site speed, reduces distractions!)
  • Gain access to a private forum - "The Locker Room" - with exclusive product giveaways, contests and discounts.
  • Gain access to a private instructional forum - "The Instruction Bay" - with up to about an hour of in-depth analysis by forum founder and Golf Evolution, PGA instructor Erik J. Barzeski and yours truly Mike Mc Loughlin(mvmac)
  • Add a custom user title under profile photo
  • A small " Supporter " badge appears below username.
  • Save 20% on Scorecard from Cynical Peak software.
  • Save 20% on Analyzr - Pro or Student versions.
  • Post up to nine (9) Classified ads in our Marketplace each month. Classifieds will be highlighted and you can bump them every 24 hours instead of every 72.
  • Total Value is $100 to $200!

Huge thanks to the existing Supporters

I think the reviews and the advise about equipment have saved me much more than the cost of a membership. I'd like to see this community thrive.

Thanks! If we get enough supporters we'll look to have supporter-only contests and as many other cool things as we can.

Thanks for your support.

P.S. Badges take an hour or so to show up sometimes. They'll show up though, eventually.

If I can give an honest review though for a second...

The primary reason I am a supporter is because this website has saved me untold amounts of frustration out on the golf course. Erik also helped me find my current instructor, and for that, I am eternally grateful. I came here as a complete golf newb and now, I'm able to enjoy this great game and play regular length golf courses. None of this happened over night, and I probably deserve a lot of the credit simply for having the ability to listen, learn and put my ego aside, but clearly, the information I've found here from the instructors and many of the members has been invaluable towards getting me on the right path -- both in the way I think about golf and the way I practice.

Also, the equipment information, getting to vent about stuff going on on the pro tours, discussing rules, chattering in golf talk... that's been a blast.

This place is great whether you are a supporter or not. The Swing Thoughts Forum and the Instruction and Playing Tips Forum are awesome and everyone gets to partake in those for free. I just wanted to give a little something back to help the site.

Like it here alot more than golfwrx.  People are not so fast to ban someone for 3 months for expressing their opinion and actually allow open discussion.  Well worth the 39.00.  I paid it gladly now ban me please.

If you pay an additional $19.95 you can get the optional S& T M add-on package for really tough love.

I didn't see that option.  Are ball gags included or do you have to bring your own?

BYOBG. It'd be impossible to stock all the kinds of ball gags out there. Titleist, Srixon, TaylorMade... Just too many.

Thanks for the thread,  I was wondering where the supporter badge came from and couldn't find any links to it.

Appreciate the information. I'll gladly throw in my $39 (less than a lost-cause dozen of Pentas) next week.

Keep up the great work guys (Erik and co.)

Thanks Spyder. I like when you post because I get to chuckle at your avatar.

Can this part be done at the time of my choosing? I ask because the only thing (aside from a decent camera) keeping me from signing up for evolvr is I'm concerned that my lack of time (father of two younguns) will prevent me from using it enough to justify paying for it. I would be willing to help support the TST site though.

You post in a thread there when you have the time. We post back. An hour is roughly four separate analyses but they may take a week for us to do them and they will mostly just involve images and written text. And if you ask a lot of follow-up questions, it might just be 3 or 2.

BTW, wait until tomorrow for the Supporter thing. Should be a no-brainer then.

Ok, guess I'd be a fool to ignore that statement!
