About Us

Our Mission

Golf Span is dedicated to helping you improve your golf game so you’ll hit more birdies and fewer bunkers!

Provide Expert Golf Advice

We offer step-by-step tutorials to walk you through the fundamentals, like swinging your club or improving your short game. We also have hundreds of in-depth reviews to help you buy high-quality gear to suit your unique needs.

Our writers are avid golfers with plenty of experience on the links. We hope our years of practice can save you time and money — and get you on the path to becoming a more knowledgeable golfer. 

Bring More Inclusivity to the Sport

Golfing can be an overwhelming hobby to start, so many of our readers are beginners looking for straight answers to their questions. We also have many posts for seniors since the gear is different than for younger folks. Most golfing blogs also ignore the growing population of women who love the sport. 

Whether you’re entirely new to golf or an intermediate player looking for help, you’ll find plenty of valuable and all-inclusive resources on Golf Span.

Get In Contact

Most importantly, we’re all here to learn and improve our game. We’re always open to suggestions and feedback. Head over to our contact page if you’d like to get in touch.
