Founded in 2007, LeadingCourses.com has since burgeoned into an active golf community. The website aims to help golfers play on the best golf courses available, based on their handicap, demands and location. For instance, golfers can quickly see how other players with a similar handicap value a certain club or course. They can also view the overall rating, based on all opinions.
Recently, LeadingCourses added India to their portfolio. Golfers can book a tee-time, know about the green fee, view details about any club or course, and share views on the courses they played on.
LeadingCourses.com joined hands with (LET) in June this year to promote participating venues on the LET and the LET Access Series schedule, thereby offering greater visibility for tournament venues. Touring players were also encouraged to rate the courses and, in so doing, help add credibility to the reviews.
At the end of last year, approximately 21,000 golf clubs and 25,000 golf courses from more than 139 countries had been mapped on LeadingCourses. com. The website is available in nine different languages.
So next time if you are planning to go out and play a round of golf, do check out this amazing website and share a review of the course to let others know about the course, facilities, your likes and dislikes to help them decide on courses to play.
