Boxgroove.com grants avid tee-thwackers access to members-only courses and clubs via its online social network, driving golf into the digital age. Boxgroovers are granted the ability to schedule tee times at private courses around the country, with more than 40 in Ohio, including Fairlawn Country Club on North Wheaton Road. Though green fees still apply and tee times may be limited, initiation and monthly payment fees are waived, allowing aspiring Arnold Palmers to spend more time chipping balls toward the green and building sand-trap pyramids to the wedge gods. Players looking for fellow athletes to putt a round with can take advantage of Boxgroove's social network, which allows passionate golfers to chat online, schedule tee times and coordinate their plaids.
Boxgroove.com is currently available in more than 38 states and course-heavy cities such as Chicago, Ft. Meyers, and Pittsburgh, making it ideal for planning golf-centric vacations or finding landing strips for makeshift hang gliders.
- Boxgroove is kind of like buying a mini membership to participating clubs in your hometown as well as those in places you visit. Sure, you still pay greens fees, but having access to the club in the first place, without dropping a couple grand for initiation or paying a hefty monthly payment, is pretty darn cool. – George Promenschenkel, The Sand Trap
