Resolving to do this more in 2012: The AGS BLOG
Blogging! I have friends that do it very well. One friend does it to keep us up to date with her family, and she’s a wonderful writer. Another friend does it as part of her business, but her blog is again, very personal and very well written. They are both women in their late 20’s to early 30’s and the medium just seems suited to them. It does NOT seem suited to me, and I don’t feel suited to it. I speak, I don’t write. But, I’ve resolved to do this more in 2012, because it would appear to be another one of those baby steps one needs to take in this fast changing business environment. So bear with me this year, hopefully it’s something on which I will improve as the year goes on.
This week, the show debuted on three new radio stations. In Columbia, South Carolina, it’s on THE TEAM 560, Saturday mornings at 7am. In Charleston, South Carolina, it’s on WSEC, 94.3, Sunday mornings at 10am. I was in both cities over the weekend, and how there was time to even air the show in between all the political ads is beyond me. The show will also air in Savannah, Georgia, on NEWSRADIO 1290WTKS, Saturday mornings at 7am. I’m thrilled to see the show grow after more than a couple of years of discussions and talks. People have said to me, “once you get it in a few markets, watch it grow”. Ok, we’ll see. There are still discussions going on in a couple of other markets, but, I don’t know if they will pan out.
When I wrote earlier about blogging more, I do not intend this blog to be all about me, but I thought I should let you know about the growth of the show from time to time. My real intent of this blog is to talk about the game of golf, at the professional level and at ours. I also from time to time want to talk about golf courses. I love golf courses. I love everything about them. I love the history, or the lack thereof, I love the people that bring life to them everyday, I love the natural surroundings, the architecture, everything about a golf course. I was privileged to play one of the really great old courses just this last weekend, Yeamans Hall outside Charleston. It’s one of the top 100 courses in the country and it’s close to 90 years old, and I love courses like that. Designed by famed architect Seth Raynor, it has all of the signature design aspects of one of his courses, including the famous Redan hole. If you ever are invited to play Yeaman’s Hall, jump at the chance…maybe we’ll see each other there….
