I have met many golfing friends through the golfing forums.  In fact, I have not met a single one who was not a blast to tee it up with.  Some of them are still close friends today and will be lifetime buddies!  Ole DawgDaddy is about an hour & half down the road from me and we have teed it up many times through the years.

The positives far out weigh the negatives.
I've met and played with a few dozen guys over the years to tee it up with. Some in big gatherings. These are the funniest and most enjoyable.

Every person I've met and played golf with from this forum, I think of as a mate now. (That's pretty big in Australia)

As for that special someone, I met my wife online back in 2003, when it was still a big taboo. Yep, I'm a mail order bride. 🤣

Thanks Mate, I feel honored! 

Oh and I met my fiance in the NEWSPAPER Classifieds in 1995....before Online Dating was even a thing...ha

I’ve played golf with a groups of guys from the major websites a couple times. There are two I still keep in-touch with, one lives 30 miles from me, the other is JLukes in here. Most of the folks I met at the gatherings were great guys, others were their own biggest fan.... One thing I noticed is many folks internet game didn’t match their real-life game!

I've played with at least 30 guys from a couple of sites, and met at least as many more at outings over the last 25 years. Out of all that I'd say there was only one guy less than super as a playing companion, and he was still better than the average of the random people I've been paired with over the years. I regret having lost touch with some of them.

One day @bens197 I will play a round together and he will torch me like Sherman torched Atlanta. I'd also love to meet up with some of the forum crew like when @Golfspy_CG2 tried to set up that Myrtle trip that never was that I was going to arrive by train for. 

Also, met my girlfriend on eHarmony last year. Trying to get into one of their ads for the commercial money. There is no level I won't sell out for!

I met my current girl friend 4 months ago online.And we are a perfect match.She is huge into fitness just like myself.And she even golfs(which has no bearing on me at all).She is gorgeous and would easily be mistaken for a run way model.And is financially well established 

For online golf.I met some great  folks at an custom clubshaft event .Really enjoyed myself.Unfortunately the guy running the site made the event uncomfortable and not as enjoyable.Never posted again after the event was over

That’s definitely going to happen...once my daughter starts full day kindergarten and I can scoot away.

Don’t sell yourself short though RB...that Nickent Pipe is intimidating on the greens

I know the site well. That place sounds like a real train wreck

Over the last 4ish years, the majority of the people I tee it up with are people I’ve met through golf forums. I’ve yet to have a negative experience with any of them. Probably because we all have this crazy game in common, and that helps reduce the nonsense. In person, I’m no different than I am on the forum, which I think is important because you never know what to believe these days. The social aspect of golf is one of the things I love the most about the game, and online communities certainly help me make those new connections that I cherish!
