Over the years, we have witnessed far too many wonderful courses either scale-back their operations, or close-down completely, due to simple marketing errors. Don't let this happen to you ... we can help!
As noted throughout MichianaGolf.com, and detailed on the About Us page, our primary aim is to stimulate golf in the "Michiana" area1 while helping where we can to make this a better place to live and work for us all.
We offer a long list of golf course marketing tools, most of which are FREE, including Golf News Articles, Golf Course Specials, Golf Tips, Golf Events, and more; all designed to help you drive more golfers to YOUR course and encourage repeat visits.
Golf News Articles: What's new at your course? What separates your golf course from all others? Tell area golfers YOUR story!
During the Golf Season, between the MichianaGolf.com website and newsletter, we serve well over 180,000 pages of localized golf information each month ... helping you showcase your wonderful course!
MichianaGolf.com Golf News Articles feature interviews with key course personnel, detailed statistics, photos, and more. This is a FREE service! Contact us to schedule an interview.
Golf Specials: Have a golf course special? Let us promote your special through MichianaGolf.com! Share your specials with the many thousands of golfers that regularly visit our website each month as well as subscribing to the MichianaGolf.com Newsletter!
We will promote your golf specials ...
- With results that can be easily tracked by you.
- Specials can be adjusted twice per month, as conditions (or tracking) warrant.
- These same Specials that bring golfers to your course can also help your favorite School, Church & Non-Profit via the MichianaGolf.com Charity Fundraising Programs.
This is a FREE service ... we ARE NOT asking for any rounds of golf or advertising dollars! We can also provide your course with up to $500 in promotional products.
What is key to the MichianaGolf.com program is that nearly 100% of our visitors are GOLFERS so your message is shared with only those most apt to utilize your service.
Join the dozens and dozens of other area courses that are benefitting from our NO COST promotional service. Contact us to schedule an appointment.
