The votes (or in this case pageviews) are in and I’ve tabulated the 18 most read articles/blogs on golfcanada.ca during the 2016 calendar year.
Please keep in mind that this list is not indicative of the stories’ importance to Canadian golf. Some articles/blogs have been more prominently featured via email, social media or Golf Canada’s other communication channels. Articles published earlier in the year have also had additional time to be read or found online via search tools such as Google.
So, without further adieu, here’s our top 18 of 2016. And, feel free to click on any of the titles to check out the article.
