Golf Reviews and Buying Guides
Golf Ball Search Engine

Golf sucks, but the never ending process of improving your game doesn't have to.

Welcome to Grumpy Gopher. My name is Dan. My goal is to create a site that helps golfers find the best equipment on the market. The more research I do the more I become aware of the PR spin and shady tactics used in lots of golf reviews. This was worrisome since equipment is such an important piece to improving your golf game.

Unfortunately, I lack the time and the budget to get each and every golf product in the market, try it out and put up a review. Nevertheless, I will be testing new golf gear every now and then, uploading my take on various designs and styles. My goal to provide a diverse and detailed range of reviews, with golf gear in every conceivable budget range.
