Tell Your Story
Golf Austin is interested in telling your story. This posting is an example of how it works. Cyrus came to our attention as a promising young player in our golfing community. We invited a friend to create a short player profile and provide us with a photo. As we say, send us a photo and a paragraph and we will publish it.
The objective here is not to highlight only the good players among us but to tell the story of people in our golfing community, young, old, good or poor players. Everyone has a story. In telling these stories, a greater sense of community is created. If you read our mission statement you will find this to be one of our primary objectives at Golf Austin.
So, send us a photo and a paragraph and tell your story. This is an excellent opportunity for coaches, players, parents, friends etc to help us tell the story of golfers among us.
Send your player profile to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need help or guidance about what to write, send us an email and we’ll give you some guidance.
