c. Course aerated on Monday, Aug x, 201x
d. Shot-gun tournament next Monday, reserve your spot before Friday.
e. Demo day, Ping, Callaway, Nike, this Saturday.

4. What type of alert should I post?
Answer 4. This is a "golfers helping golfers" project. Golfers should post information about the course that they would have appreciated knowing. If a course has 3 holes under repair, and no one has issued an alert, and this is something you wish you had known, others would want to know this also. Post an alert. If there's a hole-in-one contest every day next week with a car as a prize, it would be nice if someone posted an alert, why not you.
5. Why does App want to know my location
Answer 5. Your location is needed for the app features to function as designed. Location is needed to display nearby courses and for other map functions such as driving directions to the course.
6. Why do you ask for my name, email address, city and state.
Answer 6. We ask for your name and email address for several reasons. a. If there are obvious errors or conflicting comments in your ranking, we may send you an email asking for clarification. b. Providing a name tends to lead to better written and thought out Golf Alerts. c. So that we can send you our award-winning golf newsletter, Off the Fringe, sent every two weeks.
We ask for your City/State so that readers can see if you are rating the course as a local, familiar with area courses, or if you are rating the course as a visitor to the area.
7. How often can I post an alert
Answer 7. Alerts should be posted as often as warranted. Please post an alert as often as necessary to alert other golfers to changing conditions and upcoming events and specials.
