Funny how the internet can bring everyone together in some way. I had the pleasure of emailing and speaking to Graham Gibbs on the phone about his company Golf Pipeline. Golf Pipeline provides golfers with a handicap tracking service, search local courses, read reviews on those courses, find other golfers in the area, and join a USGA club in your area.
Graham is very friendly individual who helped me get all set up on Golf Pipeline. I will be using this site as my handicap index this year. I have used other sites in the past but I find Golf Pipeline to be even more user friendly than others in the past and more affordable.
Golf Pipeline has provided a unique promo code that would give golfers in this area a 50% discount to the 1 Year handicap price of $18.00. A USGA handicap through the Minnesota Golf Association costs $40/year, so golfers would save $31.00 the first year and $22.00 every year thereafter. Just go to Golfpipeline.com and here is the unique promo code for golfers to use to get 50% off the first 1-Year USGA handicap: GP50%OFF2015
I recommend using Golf Pipeline and if you create an account be sure to look me up.
