Hi everyone,

We are very excited to be a sponsor here and are looking forward to joining the conversation about all things golf.  Not only am I the founder but I and my co-founder have run a 50 person golf league in Central NJ for several years so golf is a huge part of our lives.  We only wish the season was longer!

As far as our business goes we are very focused right now on building our library of reviews and our listings so that golfers can get out of site exactly what we promise, the ability to find, research, and review their local pros. I'm happy to answer any questions you might have and if you have any feedback for us after giving us a visit that is always greatly appreciated.

Thanks MVMAC for the intro.

Chris

Interesting concept. What sort of filters do you have to weed out malicious and/or nuisance reviews?

Hi Stretch & Phil,

Great questions.  Here is what we have done to minimize such activity:

1) All reviews require an account with a validated e-mail address, and no account can review the same pro twice.

2) We are reviewing every review that is posted and looking at the other reviews for the same pro as well when doing so.

3) Pro's that suspect a review is fake can report that review for us to look into further with the reason why they believe it is, and

4) Any golfer can do the same if they believe a review does not meet our review guidelines.

Obviously it is not possible to catch every thing but between these things and giving the Pro the ability to respond to their reviews we believe we have a good starting off point.  So far the vast majority of our reviews have been positive but it is still early.

Thanks for the questions and I hope you'll both give it a try.

I noticed that one of  the pros that I use is listed in Michigan but none of the pros at Carl's Golfland in Bloomfield Hills are listed.   Joe Portfilio at Carl's is an amazing teacher/instructor.   Carl's was listed as one of the top places in America for lessons.

dennyjones,

Thanks for checking out the site. We currently have over 15,000 pros listed and our database is growing by the day. If your pro is not listed, you can add them by clicking the "Add New Golf Pro" button located at the top of each search result. The pro and your review will then be added to the site within 24 hours.

Hi,  Every time I try and review my golf pro I get the below message

Please correct the following errors:

  • You must be logged in to access this page.

I keep logging in and the same message keeps showing up.  I went to contact us, but it is just too much to have to re-enter all my information again.  I mean if I am logged in to my account, I should just be able to click contact us and then type what I want to say or my issue and not have to state everything all over.  It was just easier to come here and mention this as maybe others are having the same issue.

Other than that I like the idea of being able to review my pro.

Thanks

Abu3baid, I am very sorry about this issue you are having.  It sounds like our system did not set up your user account properly.  We are looking into it.  I am going to send you PM with a couple of questions to help us resolve this issue on our end.  I tested my other accounts this morning and I am not having any trouble reviewing.  Very sorry for the inconvenience.

Chris

Great idea. It should really help people find a good pro if they don't already have one they work with and like.

Submitted review.

I met these guys Friday at the NJ Golf Show. Cool idea, they said they want to create a Yelp for golf pros. Not sure about the end game, but it seems interesting. I actually found it to be very useful as a course finder since their search engine for pros seems pretty strong. With this kind of thing, it's going to require critical mass to be of any use. I think they might be able to beef it up in the meantime by aggressively recruiting the pros to fill out their profiles, get them to offer their teaching philosophy, which tools they use (TM, FS, teaching aids, etc).

Thanks for stopping by the booth.  We met lots of great people this weekend and hopefully this will help lead to some of that needed critical mass in NJ.  We appreciate the support and feedback.

    • I still remember my first couple of rounds playing strokeplay from the backtees on my home course. Because I went down to under hcp 15 I had to play in cat1 group, before that I only played Stableford from the medal tees. First couple of times 100+ scores as a hcp 14. I even got so fed up with this strokeplay, I picked up a couple of times. It took me two handfull of rounds to get used to it. later I played as a single digit player twice a strokeplay tournament on a nice but to me unknown course and scored both times 103. This year I will play it for the third time, to break that record. Strokeplay, no esc will get into his head. I would bet on it.
    • Obviously keeping your left leg flexed longer is the key.  For me, the problem has been straightening the right leg, but in theory any straightening that lifts you away from the ball is not good. What I have started doing is not flexing my knees that much when setting up.  They are not locked, but they are pretty straight.  I've never done this before but it has helped to keep me balanced and not do the lift-down-lift move.  My head doesn't move as much and I can lift my left heel on the backswing without lifting my upper body.  I also feel that I'm not fighting as much to get to the left side.  I'm getting more consistent contact and it seems to be easier on my body. I have no idea if it will help you at all and I'm just throwing it out in case you can't use a drill to fix your issue. John  
    • Hi guys been having trouble with my account or I wouldn't be so spotty... Anyways I been looking to upgrade my entire bag and am slowly but surely. I just ordered my new irons 716 AP1 and can't be more excited. I was just wondering what you guys thought on how hard it's going to be to adjust to them coming from TM Burner plus irons. I'm sure they will be a half to a full club longer due the stronger lofts, but how much more forgiving could they be. I really hope the long irons will be a tad bit easier to hit than mine currently are. Thanks for any and all feedback and remember the goal is to keep it in the short grass lol 
    • I love grilling steaks. I've cooked them caveman style right on the charcoal, a grate over my chimney starter, reverse sear, 700* grill, you name it I've done it. I haven't tried the sous vide method yet, but it's similar to a reverse sear in the oven then 30 seconds on a hot grill grate. My favorite cut is a big 3lb cowboy ribeye. I'll eat a filet at a steakhouse, but the ribeye is king when I'm grilling at home. 
    • 5/24:  Another rainy day (and my yard is soaked), so kept it light, and indoors.  Looks good to play tomorrow, finally, though.
      5 mins. wall drill indoors, no club; focus on keeping backside into wall through impact
      A couple of mins. in front of mirror; focused on checkups for setup position, then at each position through impact
