As technology evolves, more and more people are looking online to keep up with what’s happening in the world. Arizona Golf Association members are no different, so we’ve made keeping up with the AGA as easy as clicking your mouse.
Blogs are a great way to learn about topics that interest you. The AGA produces an array of golf-related blogs. From the azgolf.org homepage, you’ll find them under the heading “AGA Blog” located a little ways down the page on the right. Use the scrollbar to see what’s new with each one. We blog about topics like rules, handicapping, greens and general topics. You’ll even find a blog by former Arizona Republic and East Valley Tribune golf writer Bill Huffman. We invite you to read our blogs, comment on what you read and share them with friends.
Facebook is another widely popular online communication tool. The AGA launched a Facebook fan page which you’ll find at facebook.com/ArizonaGolfAssociation. Stay up-to-date on our Facebook activity by clicking on the “Like” button and joining our more than 380 fans. What are we posting? Announcements about upcoming events, links to AGA contests and promotions, photos from a recent AGA events and more. We welcome your comments too! One AGA Facebook fan posted, “AGA on FB? I think it’s ‘one small step for AGA…a giant step for its members’! Please keep up the great job!” Our Facebook fan page is an excellent way for you to stay connected with us, so make it a regular stop when you’re online. Just remember to call us with questions specific to your membership or to which you need a quick response.
A third way to stay in the loop with AGA activities is through Twitter. If you’re not familiar with Twitter, it’s a real-time information site that allows users to send short bursts of information called tweets (140 characters maximum) to their followers (the people who subscribe to their tweets). You’ll find us at twitter.com/accessazgolf. Click “Follow” to receive our tweets on your Twitter homepage. While some of our tweets are similar to our Facebook posts, you’ll also find unique ones, so make sure you join us on both social media sites. During the US Open, Ed Gowan tweeted throughout each day of the event as a walking rules official. You just never know what we’ll tweet next.
If you are curious about Facebook or Twitter, but have never used them before, use these links to create an account: Facebook signup, Twitter signup. If you have questions about either, both sites have extensive help sections that are sure to answer any question you might have.
