Niche Dating Site of the Week: GolfMates.com

by @ 12:19 am. Filed under Niche Dating, Site of the Week

I love to play golf. So when the idea of niche dating sites came to mind, my first thought was, I wonder if there are any golf related online dating sites? Turns out there are. GolfMates was the first one I found.

According to the site there are five reasons why golf is the perfect first date:

  1. It is one of the few sports men and women can truly enjoy together.
  2. It is a safe, daytime, outdoor activity that is usually played in groups of four.
  3. There is plenty of time to socialize between shots.
  4. It comes to an end after 9 or 18 holes. If you are compatible with your golfmate, the clubhouse is a perfect place to continue the date. If you are not compatible with your golfmate, the end of a round is a comfortable way to end the date.
  5. Common interest in golf. Having a common interest with a prospective mate greatly reduces the pressure of having to create conversation.

GolfMates was launched officially on May 5, 2004. The people behind GolfMates want golf to be considered as an enjoyable dating activity. As of now posting your profile on the site is free.

While the site has birdie potential, it is presently over par. This however could be remedied with more golfers finding out about the site, so hopefully this helps in some small way. There were only 21 female golfers of all ages in my state. With the limited selection of golfers on the site, maybe you won’t find the love of your life but you may find some potential playing partners in your area. Although back on Dec. 31, 2004 a couple that met on GolfMates got married. So you never know.
