There is now an app that allows you to fill your foursome with like-minded golfers. A good friend of Nextgengolf, GolfMatch’s founder Peter Kratsios is striving to connect golfers. GolfMatch allows you to post about your golfing experiences, find golfers to play with near you, and even win an opportunity to play with a PGA TOUR player.
Since meeting Peter at our National Championship in April, I have been using the app personally and have enjoyed being able to interact with golfers in my community and around the country.
GolfMatch just announced how they are setting up golfers with a round with PGA Tour players. Three PGA Tour Players (Padraig Harrington, John Senden, Andrew Svoboda) have committed to playing 1 round/year with GolfMatch users. The lucky golfers will randomly be selected and the only criteria to enter is downloading the app and sharing at least ONE experience.
I have personally found this app to be very useful in finding new people to golf with in my area.
GolfMatch is also a useful resource to recruit golfers for my school’s club golf team. It is very easy to navigate and I keep finding myself checking GolfMatch before Facebook or Instagram.
