The Golf Gadfly
The Golf Gadfly interferes with the status quo of golf by posing novel, potently upsetting questions, usually directed at authorities.
What GroupLooper is all about—help people play more golf. Our strategy is simple: make it more fun, more convenient, and more affordable.
Readers of this blog are on a mission to grow golf. We brainstorm ideas that will inspire more people to play more golf. Join the team.
Gary is certifiably nuts… in a good way. His posts reflect the zen of Frank Zappa; “A mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work If it isn’t open.”
A BHAG is a Big Hairy Audacious Goal. The GroupLooper team has a BHAG… to enable any golfer to book a tee time on any golf course on the planet in 15 seconds of less.
The Golf Gadfly recently completed the most comprehensive study ever of golf course tee time software systems. The info in this post is useful to course operators as they evaluate their software options.
We’re on a mission… 250 courses in 100 days. Join in the fun with rock icon Steve Miller as we’re Going To The Country (Club).
Co-opetition is a weapon often used to stimulate growth… something badly needed in the golf industry. Once competitors have cooperated to create the growth, they individually compete to garner as much of the additional business as they can. GroupLooper Business Booking is a new co-opetition tool.
I don’t ever want you to say again “I could have played… I would have played… I should have played… but I didn’t.” No mas.
Why is golf shrinking? Here is one man’s opinion… how about throwing some other ideas into the pot, we’ll stir it up and maybe come up with an antidote for what ails the golf industry.
In the words of the immortal Frank Zappa… “a mind is like a parachute… it doesn’t work if it isn’t open”. Let’s make sure our minds are open when we talk about how to get golf growing again.
In our never-ending search for fun golf games to share with GroupLooper users, every once in awhile we run across one that we can’t wait to tell you about.
Here is one of those… it’s called an Eclectic Golf Tournament.
Every once in awhile we come across deals that are so good we feel obligated to spread the word. Our focus is on opportunities to score deals on some of the top courses where you usually need to pay full rates.
Get to know the Golf Gadfly and prepare yourself for a barrage of ‘potently upsetting questions’ about the game of golf. This is fare for deep thinkers only.
