Reasons to get your swing on

So you’ve heard of Groupon. You know what it is, and you’ve probably used it before. You know that when you wake up to your blackberry every morning, between the 22 emails from your boss and your weekly bank statement, it’s the first email you get excited about (no one ever jumped for joy over Excel spread sheets).

Yesterday, a Golf-inspired form of a Groupon-esque website released to the North Texas market. The site is iDealGolfer.com, and their product is sure to get your 9 iron and putter in a Par 4 tizzy. With 50%-90% discounts off rounds of golf on your favorite courses, it’s enough to put your caddy on speed dial.

The economy is still stuck in a sand trap with golf balls of players past, and iDealGolfer.com knows that golf fans still need access to their favorite sport; thus, your new favorite website was created. So how does it work? Easy. Lose the fear of revealing your email address and enter it on the website. Like Groupon, specials will be offered daily and must be purchased before the 24-hour mark. Not only will members receive discounts on rounds at the coolest courses, they’ll also receive discounts on other products: think a juicy steakhouse dinner. So golfers, invest in a collared wardrobe, and start sleeping with your golf bag next to your bed because registration is available now.

idealGolfer.com is a subsidiary of Avid Media Ventures, Inc., a print and digital golf media company serving golfers in the Southwest for more than a decade. President Craig Rosengarden and Managing Partner Rick Arnett have extensive experience in the region reporting on and championing golf in North Texas. They are co-hosts of The Tee Box radio show, heard 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. every Saturday morning on Dallas’ No. 1 sports radio station, KTCK 1310 The Ticket.
