Welcome to WikiProject Golf! We are always looking for new members to do anything so please put your name on the list down the page. And remember to check the talk page for news. Have a great time!

Goals[edit]

  • Improve Wikipedia's coverage of golf.
  • Create guidelines for articles about golf.
  • Create a set of templates to assist us in achieving these goals.

Scope[edit]

  • This project culminates all things to do with golf including golf courses, golf tournaments and scoring systems.

To-Do list[edit]

  1. Continue adding {{Wikiproject Golf}} to golf articles so a more accurate figure of golf articles can be reached.
  2. Create golf course articles for every major venue, also to have every golf course article have same information box in the corner.
  3. Create pages for all tournaments on the tours that are on Wikipedia. i.e. Champions Tour, Asian Tour, Challenge Tour to name a few.
  4. Discuss notability guidelines for golf courses on the talk page.
  5. Add individual articles on sister companies. i.e. separate Nike Golf from Nike
  6. Add descriptions of each hole on a golf course's article.
  7. Add flags alongside winners in all PGA and European Tour tournaments.
  8. Implement Template:Infobox golfer replacing ad-hoc tables on golfer articles.
  9. Create and add pictures for muscle-back iron

When a task has been done, simply put a strike through it. By no means should this be the only tasks being done. If you believe there is another task, do it and add it to the Recent updates of Articles section below.
