I’m always searching out, looking for, and half of the time, stumbling across some great golf writing, mostly in the form of blogs. One of the best, especially from a Chicago perspective (They also have some reviews of California and Florida courses) is Beaver Golf.
Now many of you may be familiar with Beaver Golf’s online store. And if you’re not you’ll want to check it out. Great selection of some of the best and most cutting-edge (Sunice Gore-Tex Rain Gear, Tattoo Golf Apparel) golf products along with some damn good deals. I would suggest signing up for their emails, as they have some awesome deals on those.
But enough commerce, let’s talk about golf, specifically this blog. It’s flat-out essential reading. The course reviews are the kind of in-depth, well written stuff you want to read about these places. This isn’t fluff, nor is it the sort of ass-kissing bs that these kind of things can be. Nope, it’s just good, solid writing and information.
There’s more than just course reviews, there’s lots of stray thoughts and ideas on a variety of pertinent golf topics, One of my faves was about whether the USGA rating system for courses was fair. Good stuff.
Of course, there are equipment reviews and considering that the man owns a store selling the stuff, they are still informative at the least.
My only complaint with the blog? There’s not enough of it! I want more and hopefully, he’ll give us just that.
