This section contains frequently asked questions about the website and answers to them. If you have a question that isn't listed here please feel free to contact us.
Q/ What is the idea behind the Golf Tips for Golfers website?
A/ The site is a resource for golfers worldwide to help them improve their own golf game and pass tips and instruction onto other golfers.
Q/ Why should I join?
A/ Instead of having to carry out individual searches on the internet for tips or instruction on a particular problem with your game, you can find all the answers in one place and pass on your knowledge to fellow golfers as well as taking part in monthly competitions and much more.
Q/ How do I join?
A/ Just fill out our simple registration form
and pay for your subscription using 2Checkout. Alternatively we will accept payment by cheque - please email us for details.
Q/ Does it matter where in the world I live? I notice your prices are in UK Pounds?
Anyone, in any country can join. However all of the content on the site is written in English.
Q/ Why do you charge a subscription fee?
Running a website of this size and stature takes time and resources. The fee reflects this and the ongoing costs of administering the site, as well as covering the cost of giving you access to all the golf tips on the site. All in all the normal annual cost of £9.99 is very reasonable.
Q/ How do I cancel my subscription?
A/ After you have joined you have a years' membership of the site. This is non refundable, however the decision to renew your membership after a year is completely up to you, so if you don't decide not to renew it then your subscription will lapse.
Q/ How do I renew my subscription?
A/ Yes you can.
You have to renew your subscription manually each year. We do not automatically take payments from your Bank Account and the decision to renew your membership is up to you, just like any golf club.
Q/ How many golf tips can I add to the site?
A/ As many as you want, there is no upper limit.
What's to stop users adding non golf related entries to the site?
A/ No tips can be added to the site unless you are a member. The site administration team review the site on an ongoing basis.
Q/ I have clicked on a golfing tip to view it and am taken to a membership registration page?
A/ If you are new to the site you need to be a member to view any tips on the site. If you are an existing member you will need to login first to view the tip.
Q/ Can I see what the members page and a golf tips page looks like before I join?
A/ Yes you can, just visit the Site Tour
Q/ In the members area I have tried to upload an image to go with my tip but it has failed. Can you tell me why?
A/ Images accompanying golf tips should be as small as possible as far as filesize is concerned. An image straight from your digital camera may be too large to upload. A program like this
may be of interest to some users.
Q/ How do I add a comment to a tip?
A/ If you are logged into the site just click the 'comment on this tip' link and add your comment.
Q/ I can't vote for a tip?
This may be because, i) You are not a member, ii) You are a member but no logged in, iii) You posted the tip and are not allowed to vote for your own golf tip, iv) You have voted for the tip in question already.
Q/ How is the Top Ten compiled?
A/ It is made up of the highest scoring tips as voted for by the website members.
