Hooked on the Green: Creating Content that Keeps Golfers Coming Back




In today's digital world, social media is a powerful tool for golf courses to connect with golfers, build a community, and ultimately drive business. But simply having a social media presence isn't enough. To truly thrive, you need to create engaging content that resonates with your target audience.


This blog dives into the "how" of social media for golf courses. We'll explore strategies for crafting compelling content that keeps golfers hooked and coming back for more.



Variety is Key: Mixing Up Your Post Formats


Golfers crave variety, so resist the urge to stick solely to text posts. Here are some different formats to consider:

  • Eye-Catching Images:  Stunning visuals are a must. Showcase the beauty of your course with high-quality photos and videos. Capture the breathtaking scenery, immaculate greens, and unique features. Highlight players enjoying a round or dramatic sunsets over the fairway.

  • Informative Videos: Videos are highly engaging and can be used for various purposes. Share pro tips on mastering a specific shot, offer virtual course tours (flyovers or hole-by-hole breakdowns), or create short behind-the-scenes glimpses of course maintenance. Partner with local golf professionals to create instructional content.

  • Interactive Content: Encourage engagement with interactive content like polls (favourite hole on the course, best time of day to play) or Q&A sessions with your teaching pros. Live video sessions can offer real-time interaction with viewers.



Content Themes to Spark Interest:


Now that you have a variety of formats, what kind of content should you create? Here are some themes to inspire you:

  • Course Updates: Keep your audience informed about course maintenance, upcoming events, and new menu items in the clubhouse.

  • Pro Tips and Tricks: Share valuable insights from your teaching professionals. Offer bite-sized swing tips, putting advice, or strategies for conquering a challenging hole.

  • Tournament Buzz: Promote upcoming tournaments and highlight past events. Share photos and videos of winners, exciting moments, and player testimonials.

  • Behind-the-Scenes Access:  Give viewers a glimpse into the inner workings of your course. Feature interviews with maintenance staff who keep the greens pristine, the chefs crafting delicious meals, or the marshals ensuring a smooth game flow.

  • Contests and Giveaways: Generate excitement with interactive contests. Offer prizes like free rounds of golf, pro shop merchandise, or tournament entries. Encourage user-generated content by asking followers to share their best golf photos or funniest course moments.


Remember, the key to engaging content is to provide value to your audience. Inform, educate, entertain, and inspire them. By consistently creating a mix of captivating content, you'll build a loyal following of golfers eager to interact with your course and experience what it has to offer.
