Opinions Wanted: The Back 9 Network Survey

GOLF INDUSTRY VETERAN DENNIS ALLEN and a team of others are launching something called the Back 9 Network and want input from golf fans. In other words, folks like you.

In a recent email, Dennis shared a brief excerpt from the business plan:
The Back 9 Network will become the premier lifestyle and entertainment multimedia network for golf fans globally. We will be different from the competition by focusing on the intrinsic story of the sport and by examining the players and the world in which golf resides. This attention to the details will reward viewers with an interesting and unique experience, one that is entertaining and at the same time informative. In short, the Back 9 Network will provide a fresh lens to view all the drama in the world of golf, from the back nine of Augusta to emotional stories about golfer’s lives.
The network’s content and programming will be available “anywhere, anytime and through any device.”

One thing Dennis made clear is that it’s a collaborative endeavor. Back 9 wants to hear from golf fans to shape its programming and inform its decisions. If you want to jump in with your thoughts and can spare five minutes, take the survey.

I'm anxious to see what Back 9 Network does. They're "launching" at the U.S. Open, I think. Plans are kind of vague, hence, the air quotes.

I completed their survey, suggesting Shane Bacon and Stephanie Wei as on-air reporters/correspondents.
