About Golfchops.com

About Us – golfchops@gmail.com

Ever show up excited to play a round of golf and discover the greens are dead, freshly punched, or just downright suck? Then you realize you just paid $75 to play on dead greens and no one in the Proshop mentioned it? This kind of nonsense drives us nuts and got us thinking, where in the hell can we get info on current course conditions in Western Washington? Where can we find out if the course we’re about to pay $75 for actually isn’t even worth $20. Well welcome to Golfchops.com! Our mission is to play as many Western Washington golf courses as our measly budgets will allow and share our findings with fellow Puget Sound golfers.

Our promise to you is an unbiased golf course review, unless the bribe is excellent under the following categories:

Customer Service

Condition of Greens

Perceived maintenance level of course
