About Us

Welcome to Golfer Hill, your premier place on the web for all things related to golf. Whether you’re just getting started or you’ve been playing for years, we strive to provide all the relevant content that every golfer needs. 

Golfer Hill got its start when a group of golfing friends was talking on the course on a yearly trip to Pinehurst Country Club in North Carolina. One of them expressed how much he’d love helping beginner golfers get started with the game but admitted that he didn’t have time. Another member of the group, a tech-savvy guy, pointed out that most beginner golfers in the age of technology get their first information about the game online. 

As they discussed this idea throughout the week, they found themselves at the club discussing the idea over dinner, and even cocktails late into the night. They were excited and energized, and an idea was born. As a result of a yearly group between golfing buddies, the enterprising group decided to create Golfer Hill. 

Beginning golfers think the learning curve of golf is very steep and that they’ll have to spend years mastering the game. However, while there are plenty of golfers who spend years mastering their craft and even make lifestyle choices to live on golf courses, it’s actually pretty easy to get started in golf if you’re committed.

Here at Golfer Hill, we cover everything relating to golf. Here are a few of the things you can expect from us. 

  • How to improve your short game

  • Holding a golf club the right way

  • The best golfing rain gear to have

  • Everything you need to know about golf carts

  • The history of the game of golf

  • Reviews on everything from grip tape to golf balls to golf bags, and even golf carts

  • The difference between Pro V1 and Pro V1X

This is just a very small sampling of what we cover for our readers here at Golfer Hill. 

We love to hear from you. If you have a content idea or review request, drop us a comment in one of our articles, or get in touch with a member of our team. We look forward to hearing from you!

I was a computer nerd in high school, and most of my writing experience was writing code. I went to college to get a career in computer engineering, but I also got to do something interesting. A fraternity brother invited me to play golf with him one weekend, and I was reluctant at first because I’m not an athletic guy. He told me that anyone could learn to play golf and he was right. I loved the game the minute I started playing it. 

Golf is more than a hobby. It’s a lifestyle, or can be if you want it to be. I’ll never be one of the best at the game, but I love playing and writing about it. It’s a privilege to work on a fine writing and editing team here at Golfer Hill. Contact me at rchapman@golferhill.com

When I was a kid growing up in the rural South, the town where I grew up had (and still has) a yearly “Cow Pasture Pool.” Golfers from all over the region would come to play at this event, which was held in a local farmer’s huge cow pasture and hayfields. At this yearly event, I had the opportunity to work as a caddy. It was all volunteer work because the profits from the events went to a local charity for underprivileged children. 

In my senior year of high school, instead of being a caddy, I signed up to actually compete in the tournament. I didn’t come even close to winning, but a spark was lit and I’ve gone on to have a rewarding career as a golf teacher at community colleges in my state. Contact me at fgiles@golferhill.com
