Of course, many years (and hundreds of golf courses) later, I think we've only officially received a dozen or so actual posts from visitors asking for advice, but I know many of my friends and colleagues have used the website to get "pumped" to go play a golf course or research and area...and thus, I feel the mission is somewhat complete, even if only in my micro-golf arena of life.
There is a now a part of middle-aged me that would have encouraged the younger version of myself to do this on a more macro-golf level, like, for example, the No Laying Up podcast group. I mention them, not out of any official affiliation (I don't know them, although I am also a public accountant, like some of them used to be) but just out of admiration and respect for guys not similar from myself taking an idea like mine and being able to pursue it, monetize it and bring it to a whole new level, so other golfers can also benefit from what they share.
One such example is the Gearhart Golf Links in Oregon. There is zero chance I would have looked this up and made a part of a family trip to the Pacific Northwest had my son and I not seen it on the Tourist Sauce Oregon Season (free plug, again, not affiliated). I have to say they got it right and really did provide a faithful "review" of the experience at the course. And...as such, you can enjoy my "micro" review now courtesy of the "macro" review they did.
