Tour Tag has been almost two years in the making and we’re so excited to finally share what we have been up to, and take you on our journey in a series of blogs. But firstly, we thought it would be best to introduce who we are.
Hey! Chris and Katie here, the co-founders of Tour Tag. So what’s there to know about us? We’re both super keen golfers that share a huge love for the game. Having both grown up on the beautiful East coast of Scotland, we were lucky enough learn the game playing at our respective courses North Berwick and Monifieth. We have both played at club, county and national level, which then progressed to the USA for college. Katie played in Arkansas and Chris played in Texas and Georgia; Three unforgettable years that took our games to new heights.
But our journey with Tour Tag started two years ago when we were in our final year at university back home. We challenged ourselves to play every golf course in Scotland, to not only satisfy our golf addiction but to showcase what Scotland has to offer. However, shortly after setting this challenge, we found ourselves questioning – why are courses sitting half empty and why aren’t more people out playing?
After some brainstorming and a whole lot of research, our solution to this was Tour Tag. A golf loyalty app that rewards players for simply playing golf. It’s our mission to get people out playing more and experiencing what Scotland has to offer. We live in a golfing mecca, that for many people around the world is a bucket list destination. But sometimes, we don’t realise what is right on our door step. Our small country has over 580 unique courses and a wealth of history behind the game. Scotland is amazing.
