Forelinksters is a great idea for a website – a golf course ratings site run by golfers. Golfers are notoriously passionate about their sport, so Forelinksters seems perfectly logical – not only to find courses where you can possibly play, but simply to learn about golf courses from around the world. Without question, the former is the best way this site can be used. On the front page, you need only click on a city and a list of golf courses come up – each with a detailed description and comments. There’s also a five star rating system.
Forelinksters has the potential to be a very useful site, but the strength of a review site is in the number of reviews, and currently the site is lacking a large repository. The creators have done a lot to encourage interaction by streamlining the review process and using a fun rating system with language like “Double Bogey” and “Hole in One”.
The site design is beautiful and the listings go beyond a simple written description by providing photos, maps/directions to the course, contact information, and even the ability to remember your favorite destinations with a watch list feature.
