Abstract: Several golf blogs link to Richardgolf.com. Users will find succinct golf business information by clicking a link.
Linking, or connecting, opens doors to deep golf course blogging. Blogrolls, or lists, contain connections to other websites that contain relevant information. You will see a blogroll on the Richardgolf.com cover page, on the lower right side, below the fold.
This cross pollination helps the source website and the destination website by increasing traffic. Richardgolf.com links to several websites:
Geoffshackleford.com features Geoff Shackleford’s stylish writing. A respected golf author, Geoff really knows the golf business and he travels the globe looking for stories about design or personalities. When he grabs on to a subject, be assured he will deliver a prodigious amount of content and commentary.
GolfCourseAtlas.com includes detailed golf course architectural discussions driven by a core group of members and working golf architects. It began as a scholarly forum for golf architecture buffs, but the site now has too many snippy, personal attacks on posters.
Golfbizwiki.com, a National Golf Foundation offshoot, includes deep articles that discuss golf course business. Editor Marlene Stone has assembled a nice mix of industry heavy-hitters, and as the site matures, I’m sure this will become a prime destination for golf industry content.
Worldgolf.com and Travelgolf.com contain a nice mix of active golf industry blogs and travel information. Blog content is updated often and the website design works for me. I like the Accidental Golfer.
Golf Course Management Blog contains content written by writers affiliated with this renowned superintendent magazine. Although they cater to GCSAA members, the site includes solid information about golf maintenance procedures and products.
