Help Pusch Ridge Golf Become More Visible
Want to help spread the word on just how “fast, fun and affordable” Pusch Ridge Golf Course is to play? YOU CAN HELP! And, we are going to make that easy for you. Please read on!
With 60% of consumers looking at online reviews at least weekly, a 2017 survey by Podium suggests that 93% say online reviews impact their purchasing decisions. This same survey indicated that 82% of consumers read reviews before making a purchase decision.
The report suggests that customers trust and engage with online reviews regularly. These reviews remain very influential when it comes to purchasing decisions – or – in our case – golf-playing decisions.
As part of FOPRG’s current marketing plan, we noticed that many review platforms have old reviews that do not reflect the current state of the newly revised course.
To help other players and increase play, we ask our readers to help us by posting current reviews on review platforms. Please click here to see the list of reviews sites and start posting your reviews!!
Awesome Pusch Ridge Video
A huge THANK YOU to Tucson native Spencer Davey who produced this fun and informative Pusch Ridge Golf video. Spencer is a FOPRG friend, a local realtor, and Tucson Golf Living YouTube channel owner.
Watch and follow Spencer as he plays two holes at Pusch Ridge and gives tips on how to play them. The video is titled “Tee It up with Tucson Golf Living- Pusch Ridge 9 hole course”.
Please share this video with your friends to help us spread the word about how much fun the course is!

PGA 2023 Rule Changes in Effect for Golfers Age 50+ (part 2)
Rule 5. – Putts that stop close enough to the cup that they could be blown in, may be blown in. This does not apply to balls more than three inches from the Hole. No one wants to make a mockery of the game.
Rule 6.a.9– There is no penalty for so-called “out of bounds”. If penny-pinching golf course owners bought sufficient land, this would not occur. The senior player deserves an apology, not a penalty.
Rule 7.G.15– There is no penalty for a ball in a water hazard, as golf balls should float. Senior players should not be penalized for any shortcomings of the manufacturers.
Rule 8.k.9– Advertisements claim that golf scores can be improved by purchasing new golf equipment. Since this is financially impractical for many senior players, one-half stroke per hole may be subtracted for using old equipment.
Please advise all your senior friends of these important rule changes.
Golf is...above all...a game of integrity.
