What is Pinterest?
They say a picture is worth 1,000 words. Pinterest is the latest evolution of social media. While Facebook and Twitter use words to draw people’s attention, Pinterest relies on captivating images.
Why should you check out Pinterest?
Pinterest is great for discovering, organizing, and inspiring.
Pinterest allows you to easily surf topics such as “golf” and discover new products and places that you otherwise would not have seen. Click the image to learn more and pin them and share with your new findings with your friends.
If you’re having a party and looking for design inspiration you can see what others have done. When you’re finished snap a few pics and share with the community.
You can create pinboards of any topics you choose to organize your interests. Example: create a board called “golf course bucket list.” You can pin images of all the golf courses you want to play and share the board with your Facebook friends, Twitter followers, and email contacts as well as the Pinterest community.

Coming Soon To Philly
We are really excited to launch FreeBirdee. FreeBirdee is free to all golfers. You can play golf; where and when you want to at an unbelievable price.
FreeBirdee began with a question over beers between two golfers with a shared passion for golf and the web, “What if you could create a web app that could make golf a better game?” The three topics that we felt we could address with FreeBirdee:
1. Lowering the expense to play golf
2. Access to quality golf facilities
3. Saving golfers time
Some of the problems that we heard from golfers that we tried to solve:
Golf is expensive. We’ve addressed this by giving you free access to a daily deal offering golf rounds, lessons, golf equipment, apparel, and other offers from cool local businesses with discounts normally 50% to 90% off retail. We want to save you serious money, so you can play more golf. You can also earn credits by referring friends which you can use toward future deals.
Tee times are a pain. Nobody likes to predict the weather and pluck down their credit card for a tee time reservation. FreeBirdee doesn’t offer tee times. We offer, in most cases, an unrestricted round of golf that you can play when you want to before the expiration date.
Tee time websites are ugly and confusing. It’s sad when it’s easier to book an airline ticket than a round of golf. At least, when you search for an airline ticket you see all available flights on one site like Expedia. For golf, you have to check each golf course individually. Worse is to look at a tee time site that only offers tee times at times that don’t work for you at courses you have no interest in playing. FreeBirdee is designed to be simple. We feature one awesome deal a day that you can get by visiting our website, www.freebirdee.com or as most FreeBirdians, just subscribe to our opt-in email and get the deal delivered to you.
Connecting with golfers is time consuming. Mostly likely you would never post on Facebook,“Hey, Who wants to cut out of work and play some golf?” The obvious reason is: you don’t want the boss to know your golf schedule. So you end up sending dozens of email to possible playing partners, you leave a few voice mails and send texts to your closest golf buddies. The result is waiting days to hear back from all your friends and coordinate schedules then selecting where and when to play. Worse, you could end up making a tee time first and not find anyone that wants to play that golf course, pay the price, or make the tee time. On FreeBirdee, we’ve made it easy for you to connect with your friends. You can share the deal via email, Facebook, or Twitter. You can also earn $10 FreeBirdee bucks on the first purchase of your referred friends. On FreeBirdee, you are not buying a tee time; you are buying a round of golf to be played at a future date. There are no time pressures to putting a foursome together, and your friends can also share in the deal.
Access to better golf courses. Golfers love to play new golf course venues, and on the discounted tee time web sites, it’s the same old golf courses with little information that will convince you to try a new course. On FreeBirdee, we promise to curate a collection of great golf and leisure experiences, awesome course photos, and interesting and entertaining write ups of the featured venue. You’ll see exclusive deals to the area’s best golf courses, cool golf destinations, and some limited access deals to awesome private golf clubs.
At some point, we promise to figure out a way to speed the pace of play too-we are working on it-we swear.
We hope you enjoy using FreeBirdee.
