The Golf Space, Golf's 1st Social Network, Turns Three.











Sometimes I feel like I've had Golf Girl's Diary forever. It's actually been about two and a half years, and in that time I've learned a lot about golf and a lot about life.

One of the first people I met when I entered this golf blogging universe was Tony Korologos a.k.a. Mediaguru. Tony's the creative force behind the Golf Space, which was the internet's first golf centric social network. It's a great place to meet other golfers without the all that background noise of some of the other networks. Well, time flies, as they say, and this week The Golf Space turns three. That's got to be at least thirty in blog years. Happy Birthday Tony thanks for three years (and counting) of golf networking and news.

Speaking of venerable golf bloggers from the days of yore, Jay Flemma who's Walk in the Park is part of The Golf Space network, is definitely going to be one to watch over the coming weeks as Bethpage Black gets ready to host the 2009 U.S. Open.

You've probably already read his stellar course reviews, but you should also know that Jay, is a quintessential New Yorker... and as an entertainment Lawyer (yes, he's multi talented) he's out on the town a lot. In addition to his expert knowledge of the expansive fairways of Tillinghast's dramatic Long Island course, Jay knows where to find the best sushi in Manhattan. And the best shopping. And he'll be sharing these and other insider tips as the 2009 Open approaches. The way the time goes by it'll be here before we know it.
