Dear Random Golf Club Community,
To say we are living in strange times is perhaps a gross understatement. Just living “Normal life” is difficult, I believe. Not bad, just difficult. We occupy an existence where we somehow have to pack in meaning, purpose, family, friends, work, and of course, this strange and wonderful game called golf. And then we are obliged to pass on what we have learned and created for the next generation.
We have a finite time on the planet to do this, and indeed on the golf course as well. Even though the times we are living in now are a far cry from the normalcy of 2019, it is my strong belief that despite the friction, complication, and extraordinary changes we face today, that this time still falls under the header of “What a time to be alive”. We all have an opportunity to create something for the betterment of our brothers and sisters, and for our next generation on and off the course.
Random Golf Club is an idea I had two years ago that would allow every person who steps foot on a golf course to feel welcome. I don’t go to church (yet) but I can’t help but wish that our golf courses were as welcoming as our churches – that there would be an outstretched hand at every starter shed, welcoming players new and old to each and every of the 30,000 golf homes that inhabit our world. I have seen a lot of things in the 60 or so countries I have played golf in. And what I have seen inspires me. It inspires me to do more and to do better with what little time I have left.
Random Golf Club’s mission is soaked in this feeling. From the very beginning, a hand of every color pointed to the very link you clicked on to arrive at this new, reimagined home of the RGC Community. We have many things planned for the coming months and years that I am all too eager to share with you. For now, please enjoy the fruits of our labor in creating this fresh look at golf media with stories, humor, interviews, community, and more. I encourage you to get involved in the discussions by populating the comment sections on this site and checking back for more stories and offerings to the RGC Community.
Sign up for the mailing list to be the first notified of news concerning events. Thank you for your time, your kindness, and your trust in what we do to make not just the golfing world – but the world at large – a better place.
