August brought the bad news of Dick’s Sporting Goods deciding to “shift away” from golf. We hate hearing news like this, but on the bright side, Dick’s owns Golf Galaxy and our $100 gift card winner should find some pretty good deals. This month our lucky winner was Roger Foster. Congrats, Roger!
Although Dick’s had bad news to share, GolfStatus had a great summer. We are growing and working hard to help courses provide better service to golfers. Rewards bring more opportunity for cheaper golf, merchandise, food, and lessons. GolfStatus users are building a great community, and the more golfers who get on board, the better the rewards become.
Turning to our leaderboard winners, Justin Coffey (a.k.a. @PrettyBoyCoffey on Twitter, a “Parody Account”) finished a solid month of golf. He won the Boy’s City Golf Championship in Lincoln and the GolfStatus Points Championship. Nice work! As for our Cash Leaderboard, Peter Hansen returned to the top. Each of our leaderboard winners earned a dozen Titleist Pro V1s. Congrats!
And of course, congrats to the many other golfers winning rewards from our partner courses.
