Worldgolf.com/Travelgolf.com sold

Fascinating to note the blogs at Travelgolf.com aren’t referencing it at all (and they’ve always pushed for full disclosure…), but according a press release, Worldgolf.com and Travelgolf.com have been sold to a group of investors from Myrtle Beach.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C., Jan. 22 /CNW/ — A group of investors today announced its purchase of WorldGolf.com and 476 other subsidiary Web sites that make up the extensive WorldGolf.com network of golf and travel-related Web sites. The multi-million dollar transaction included the purchase of a total of 477 Web sites. With this purchase, investors have secured ownership of the Internet’s most visited golf-related network, which currently receives more than two million unique site visits per month and includes such sites as WorldGolf.com, TravelGolf.com, WorldGolfWire.com and Golf Publisher Syndications.

The press release said the sites would be revamped and new editorial content would be added. The press release is here. Travelgolf.com’s blogs are here.

  • Most of the regular visitors (and some bloggers) at worldgolf.com blogs are bigots that leave comments that could constitute hate crimes in Canada.

  • Robert: Thanks for the mention. As for “full disclosure,” I reckon the press release pretty much took care of that. But if there’s anything else you want to know, I’d be happy to rap any time. I’m on the road until Tuesday but we could touch base then. You’ve got my number.
