Subscribing to News Items

Twitter

If you’re a regular Twitter user then Twitter may be a more convenient mechanism for you to receive the Latest News. Whereas RSS will feed you the news items from our website, Twitter can also feed you the news items, plus comments from registered Twitter users.

You need to register with Twitter to get your own Twitter account and, if you want to use your smart ‘phone or iPad, you will need to download the appropriate application from here.

RSS

RSS was the forerunner of Twitter and it enables you to merge Gifford Golf Club news items with the news items from other websites you regularly visit. You do not have to register to use RSS but you do need to have an RSS enabled application on your computer, tablet or smart phone. Most email programs support RSS but usually it is better to use a dedicated RSS reader and there are many free RSS reader applications.

If you have more than one computer, tablet or smartphone then its best to enrol with an RSS aggregating service such as Feedly and then use your browser or smartphone application to view your News feeds. The aggregating service will then keep track of which news items you have read on any device.

If you need the full address of our RSS feed it is “www.giffordgolfclub.co.uk/?feed=rss2”.
