Hi my name is David Huggins, I am the founder of the website Spot the Golfball.
I started playing golf at an early age, and actually got quite good at it. But in my late teens I stopped playing for almost 12 years. I became more interested in going out to bars and chasing girls. After a bout of depression in my 30's my father coaxed me back to the game, and it was the best thing that has ever happened to me. Getting out in the fresh air, exercising and meeting new people. The return to golf basically changed my life.
The idea for the website came about in early 2015. Myself and a few friend were discussing running a competition on a Saturday, along side the usual 2's competition. Giving everyone the chance to win some golfing goodies. Some of my favourite days playing the game, were our clubs Captains and Members day. As along with the competition prize money. You were able to win golfing equipment as well. On these 2 special days in the year. This gave the whole golf club a chance to win something, and not just the usual suspects. Those guys and girls who were proficient at the game, who were basically winning every week. My father a 28 handicapper at the time won a Callaway bag, for closest to the 100 yard marker on a par 4. It was probably abit of a miss hit, to be honest. But on winning the prize made him feel special.
This was the reason for creating the website, to give the average golfer a chance at owning some of those coveted golf prizes. From I started playing the game, over 30 years ago. The golf market has expanded massively, and continues to grow year-on-year.
So at the start of 2017 I started to build the website. To be honest it hasn't been easy, and we are not quite finished yet . But our online launch date is set for the 3rd of June, and I am certain we will be up and running by then.
