Subject: Golf Discussion Board Recommendations
Any recommendations for good golf discussion boards? RSG used to be
one, but not so much anymore. Perhaps it should be called
rec.sport.nongolf
now.

I've found GEA and FGI, any others?

I'm not going away, just looking for other options. Looks like some
good suggestions.

It's Australian so it has some regional bias, but the general boards
(e.g golf instruction, equipment and rules) are quite universal. The
discussion, particularly on swing theory, is nicely on-topic, lacking
those blowhards with their barrows to push.

Even TGM is looked on pretty favourably, but discussed rationally rather
than emotively. For instance, look at this thread:

http://www.iseekgolf.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=18841

and wonder whether this level of polite discussion about TGM would occur
on rsg.

The whole site is nicely segmented into areas of interest, so you can
avoid all the political crap, which is syphoned off into a "lounge", if
you want to.

You might even learn something about cricket and Aussie Rules in the
"Sports" board. :-)

http://www.golfclubatlas.com is also a great site for serious discussion
on course design.

Good call...like every other ng these days - full of fucking trolls.
