London and Area Golf History January 1, 2018

Happy New Year to everyone and especially to those who have checked out our website in its inaugural year of 2017. The official tally of “visits” for 2017 is 19,320………not bad for a website with a somewhat narrow target market segment of those golfers who care about getting their facts straight about how London golf got to be the way it is. Big plans in the non-golf season to improve and expand the contents of “londonandareagolfhistory.com” so that it is better in 2018. Another interesting goal for 2018 is to have all of the information on the website gathered in a book form and available to the public at the London Room of the London Public Library. Play well in 2018 and thank you.

  1. LOVELY HISTORY, WILL YOU BE POSTING OLD PHOTOS OF GOLF COURSES IN AND AROUND LONDON?? THANKS, NORMA

    1. Yes, Norma, there are currently 25 layouts listed and that will rise to 28 shortly. There are plenty of old photos and diagrams [about 600 in all] so far but that will rise with more courses and more material being added. Our ultimate goal is all 80 courses within an hour’s drive of London but it will take some time to accomplish that. This is prime season for me to be adding to the website because it definitely doesn’t seem to be prime time for golf outside. Look for a complete redo of the format in the near future that should be more user/golfer friendly. Thanks.
