New web­site for Golf Nuts

Inside Golf - - Inside Biomechanics -

WE’VE writ­ten at length about the Scoo­pon/ Groupon de­bate, and how group buy­ing sites are slowly chang­ing the way cour­ses/clubs do busi­ness (some­times to the detri­ment of the clubs).

But a new golf-only Aus­tralian-owned web­site is burst­ing onto the scene which prom­ises to be more ben­e­fi­cial to golfers and golf cour­ses.

The new GolfNut.com.au is a golf deals web­site that gives golfers the chance to take ad­van­tage of great value golf, via weekly deals sent straight to their email.

“There are so many places you can buy cheap clubs and balls, but few op­tions to get ac­cess to great green fees,” says GolfNut CEO, Andrew Davies.

Un­like the main­stream daily deals providers, which of­fer coupons for ev­ery­thing from mas­sages to li­po­suc­tion, GolfNut is ded­i­cated to golf and, ac­cord­ing to Davies, has the in­dus­try’s best in­ter­ests at heart.

“They (main­stream sites) don’t know golf, they don’t help course man­agers grow their busi­ness, and they aren’t in­ter­ested in what works for golfers ei­ther. At GolfNut, we want to cre­ate deals with the golf cour­ses that work well for them and which of­fer great value to the golf­ing pub­lic.”

Us­ing GolfNut is as sim­ple as sign­ing up at www.golfnut.com.au and re­ceiv­ing a weekly email con­tain­ing a great deal. You can buy as many deals as you like. Tee-times are booked di­rectly with the course.

“GolfNut is Aus­tralian owned and run by golf in­dus­try peo­ple. We love golf, and we see a real op­por­tu­nity here to make get­ting out to play golf eas­ier and bet­ter value whilst en­sur­ing cour­ses pros­per,” Davies says.

Mr Davies adds that keep­ing the GolfNut­ters happy is a pri­or­ity.

“We’ve heard hor­ror sto­ries of coupon hold­ers from other main­stream sites be­ing treated as sec­ond-class cit­i­zens on course. This is due to poorly struc­tured deals which cre­ate con­flict with mem­bers. Our of­fers will work for both cour­ses and play­ers.”

The GolfNut team is also keen to build deals around cour­ses that golfers want to play.

“We want to build our sub­scriber base at the same time as lin­ing up deals, so sub­scribe early and give us your ideas to en­sure the great deals can start rolling in,” he says.
