It’s been a long time coming since I first announced the launch of GolfTripper.com back in March of this year, but I have finally gotten it to the point that it’s ready to be sent out into the world. Quite a few people have put in a ton of hard work developing the new site and getting more than six years worth of archives from The Itinerant Golfer blog ported over. A HUGE thanks to my friends at Release The Hounds with whom none of this could have been accomplished.
Now that my Top 100 quest is beginning to wind down, I didn’t want to simply put TheItinerantGolfer.com out to pasture, so I thought I would transition the website over to something that might be more useful to the golf community at large. My intent with GolfTripper.com is to create a fun and easy to navigate website that will promote golf travel, create an information depot for those looking to plan golf trips, and provide a spot where other golfers who wish to write about their experiences traveling and playing golf are able to do so.
I hope everyone enjoys the next phase of my golf adventure and that it continues to be as fun as the last phase. Please note that I will still be plugging away at my Top 100 quest and working on playing the remaining handful of courses. At the time of this writing I have just 10 courses left and I still can’t believe that I’ve gotten this far. I have a number of Top 100 courses that I have already played that will be getting added to the site in the coming weeks. I don’t know exactly what’s next for me personally, but I’m certainly not going to stop traveling and playing golf, so don’t think you won’t be hearing from me if and when I complete my Top 100 quest.
I hope you’ll take a few minutes to click around on the site and check out the new design and look . . . I think you’ll find it easier navigate than the old site.
