Community Spotlight: LinksDAO to Buy a Top US Golf Course

Understanding LinksDAO

LinksDAO unites golf enthusiasts to collectively reimagine modern golf through a community-driven approach. As a protocol that successfully sold over $10 million in NFTs to fund its mission, it’s thrilling to witness how they leverage Common to funnel their passion for golf and turn it into collective community decisions and outcomes.

Just a year ago, LinksDAO made a strategic acquisition of Spey Bay Golf Club in Scotland, utilizing the Common platform to decide whether to submit an offer. Given its prime location and potential to become an elite links course, the community saw this as an extraordinary opportunity.

Recently, LinksDAO initiated the process to acquire a golf course in the US, submitting a proposal to the community on Common. With their global network, expertise, and a commitment to making golf accessible, LinksDAO is set to redefine the course and club culture in the US.

LinksDAO Forum Discussion

Discussion in the forum has centered on the strategic location of Spey Bay, Scotland, and its accessibility. While concerns about proximity to major airports and additional amenities were raised, many highlighted the course’s connection via Inverness Airport and its proximity to other renowned links courses. The affordability of Spey Bay was also noted as a plus. Members emphasized the importance of a solid business plan and potential partnerships with local tourism entities to sustain the course's future. Overall, the community supported the Spey Bay acquisition as a unique and promising venture for LinksDAO.

Through decentralized decision-making, LinksDAO members actively participate in shaping the future of their golf courses, expanding their influence to the US market.

Decentralized Decision-Making at LinksDAO

The acquisition of Spey Bay Golf Club was a community-driven decision made through Common, fueled by the course's rarity as one of only 247 true links courses globally. Its coastal setting and potential enhancements caught the eye of top architects like Bill Coore and Gil Hanse, positioning it alongside storied courses such as St Andrews. LinksDAO plans to elevate Spey Bay into a premier destination, collaborating with brands like Callaway and launching scholarships to enhance accessibility.
