Putter Talk Acquires GolfOpinions.com!

If you are looking at a list of the most influential golf websites in history, GolfOpinions.com is certainly close to the top of the list. On June 1st, PutterTalk.com acquired GolfOpinions.com to continue the legacy.

Started in 2001 by avid golvers with…er…Opinions, GolfOpinions.com (GO for short) reached more than 20,000 members before a lot of todays golf websites were even imagined. In the past few years, other sites like out friends at GolfWRX.com have taken over the lead in terms of membership and popularity, but GO still remained one of the “Cornerstone” golf websites.

Initially, there won’t really be any major changes at GO. I plan on upgrading the software, and changing the appearance a little, but not much past that. In the coming months, we’re going to spend a lot of time adding features that will complement the site, and give the members a reason to stop by more often. My hope is that we’ll be able to return GO to a place where people can come and just talk about Golf…and offer their opinions.

To Existing GO Members:

I can’t tell you how excited I am about this. A lot of the moderators you’ve grown to know are still going to remain quite active. The only real differences that you should notice are that the speed of the site and software will improve dramatically. I’ve been running internet forums since the late 90s, and have a pretty good track record with the golf forums that I’ve been involved with. Most of the guys at PutterTalk.com and other sites I’ve run will tell you that I run a pretty fun site. GO has a great legacy that I’m excited to be a part of.

PutterTalk Members:

While I still think PutterTalk will always be “Home”, I think that bringing a site like GO back to its former glory is a task WELL worth the effort. Think of this as a 20,000 member extension of our family.

If anyone has questions, just stop by either forum. There are threads in the “FAQ & Site Announcements” sections about this.

Here’s to the future!
