Buddies planning a golf trip can get a little help from their friends on the Web
For traveling golfers there may not be anything more enjoyable than the buddy trip ? whether it’s taking the pilgrimage to Scotland to play at St. Andrews or planning a weeklong sojourn to Scottsdale, Ariz. But putting together such a trip can sometimes be daunting.
Now there?s a website that allows traveling golfers to not only plan their golf trip in one central location, but banter back and forth, keep track of bets and awards, tell a few jokes and store memories long after the trip. The website, which launched in the fall, is called TripCaddie.com, and it works much the same way some of the fantasy sports websites work.
A group, whether it be four, eight, 16 or whatever, appoints a leader, just as a fantasy league would have a commissioner, and each of them have access to a private site that only they can see. Like Facebook or other social media, the site has a wall where members can post comments or discuss details of the outing or trip. It also has a list of travel and tee partners they can use, such as Orbitz and GolfNow.com.
“We are focused on becoming the one-stop shop for all buddy golf trip needs, so golfers don’t have to scour multiple websites to plan their trips” said TripCaddie.com President and co-founder, Jon Morse.
The website offers features for groups to collaboratively build an itinerary, create pairings, and track scoring while capturing the memories with custom photo and video albums and blogs. The service is free for now.
