I know I've posted in here before but, being fairly new, I love the interaction I've had on MGS. Whether it's new threads I start or just responses on other threads.

 

Enjoyed getting out with some of you a few weeks ago and look forward to many more rounds!

Like-minded people with an affinity for golf and equipment. It's kind of my AA, I tell people about my golf and golf equipment addictions to help sort out my buying behavior.

I came across this site one day while net surfing for all things golf.  I just kinda sat here and started reading some of the threads and thought it was a great site for me to join.  Haven't regretted it yet!!  Some great people on here and I wish we were all closer together so I could get some rounds in with everyone.

I always enjoyed reading about golf well everything. In particular club reviews and info on new things coming out.

I would say 99% of the time I found MGS to have the best of both. That and I really enjoyed reading all the data they gave along with the most wanted articles.

It's just an amazing site and community that quickly got me hooked!

Months and finally decided to check out the forums.I like the fact that clubs,balls ,etc are tested without bias and without kissing up to any manufacturer .

For me I saw posts on Twitter by MSG, and gave them the usual glance. Then one day I actually took the time to read the post (review) and automatically was drawn in. Then when I introduced myself, I was greeted with friendly, warm, and kind people. I like being apart of a community like that.

Folks like you are what makes a golf community like MGS shine!  No doubt once a person  joins in with the discussion and becomes active in all aspects, the experience becomes real and golfers become hooked.   Hooked in a good way!  Unfortunately there are places where your voice only counts if you're in the "cool kids" club.  Not here, that shat don't fly.

I also feel I could play a round with anyone in the community and never feel pressured or embarrassed.

Bingo!   Maybe just one of these days we can have a gathering in a centralized location where Spy's can cover the course!

I joined for all the tips, tricks and fun. I just got into golf a few years ago since I had been working grounds at a local country club. After looking at a bunch of reviews and articles all over, I kept getting roped back into this site/forum. From then, I was convinced that this was something I wanted to be a part of so I made an account. The rest is kinda history and I've enjoyed every second of my time as a member.

I joined because it seemed like the best source of unbiased reviews on info on the web.  It also seems like a very friendly community so for me at least, a perfect storm for a forum I would want to join.

I joined because I wanted a place to talk about golf amongst some fellow golfers. Seemed like a place where not conforming to what everyone else says doesn't get bashed, and I appreciate that.

 

The fescue thread says it all in my opinion. Some side with Na, some with Rory, no one gets flamed for either. Healthy discussion makes me happy while I'm working.

You mean there are actually sites that bully folks for not complying with their thoughts!   :blink:
