Looking For A 2013 Golf Pool To Join?

If you're like me over the holiday season you begin to get a bit antsy and you begin to look for things to do with your free time. Since there's two feet of snow here in the Ottawa area, golf obviously takes a back seat. After I've exhausted the kids at the local toboggan hill.  I can sometimes be found immersing myself in a little action at Party casino.com . I often download a few new apps for my iPhone as well. Most lately seem highly addictive.

This is also the time of the year that I begin my research into my Fantasy Golf Pools and Leagues. Most run the whole year while others run just for the Majors.

Seamus Maher over at Go For The Green Golf Pools runs some fabulous golf pools if you like to play for money. It really makes watching the PGA Tour that much more enjoyable.

This past season, Seamus had 236 people participate in a variety of pools which paid out close to $20,000. The season starts off with an offering of 4 pools which run the entire PGA season ... Monthly, Weekly, Weekly Cap and Weekly Pick pools. These pools last season paid out $4,300; $3,100; $1,000 and $1,000 respectively.


Registration deadline is December 30th, 2012 at 9pm EST. Sign up at:
