Anybody who has read my columns and blogs of the past knows my opinion in respect to golf course rankings being nothing but manufactured controversy, so I don’t plan to beat a dead horse today after the recent release of the ScoreGolf Top 100.
As a matter of fact, I don’t even plan to launch an opinion.
This time, it’s your turn to offer your thoughts, not on the final list that ScoreGolf is beating the drums about, but the behind-the-scenes lobbying that apparently needs to take place for a golf course to make the top 100.
In a recent contribution, ScoreGolf blogger Rick Young suggests that golf courses in New Brunswick, or anywhere else for that matter, open their wallets and bring in panelists from around the country to play their properties.
You decide if you have the budget for that before commenting.
According to Young, the investment is worth it because he says placement in the top 100 is a cornerstone to a course’s marketing for years to come. Do you agree? Are rankings in general based on merit or money?
These are all issues that affect the industry and now it’s time for the industry to comment. To read the blog Top 100 Business Advice, click here. Once you’re done, come on back and offer your thoughts on this matter in the Comments section below.
