Is anyone familiar with the Links Golf Club? Not the course, but the affiliate of the group that bought Spey Bay. It looks like a competitor to 10000 Greens.


Thanks.

Ira -

The LinksDAO does a weekly "virtual" community meeting every Thursday that you can replay on youtube. Here is the archive of their meetings.

There were several meetings discussing their purchase of the Spey Bay course a couple of months ago.

They announced today the hiring of Clayton, DeVries and Post as their renovation architects for Spey Bay.


It's not at all like 1000 Greens. It is a Web3- NFT/Crypto financed club that believes it will be buying/building multiple courses throughout the world over the future. They are wildly ambitious, but have learned plenty since their inception 18mos ago.

I think one of the guys at my club in SF is directly involved I think. Iím generally familiar with what they do. Crypto as a form of financing. And think itís an interesting idea, but am not sure how it would work in practice if it became mainstream.

The DAO has a sister affiliate that describes itself as a network of golfers with local chapters. They claim 30,000 members. The membership fee appears to be payable in dollars. They have some decent discounts (20% off Ship Sticks caught my eye).


Thanks.

I am hoping to drive over to Spey Bay in the next week or two to take a look around.

I'd be interested to hear your thoughts. While there you might want to take the opportunity to walk across the old railway bridge across the Spey and also have a look at the Garmouth & Kingston course (or is it Kingston & Garmouth ?).
