First launched in 2019, wheretoplaygo.com was built to serve as the definitive map for Go clubs, Go players, and eventually Go events. It aims to differentiate itself by being up-to-date and accurate.
As of 2019-09-30 it shows some 61 clubs and 15 Go players, of which 2 clubs are in South America, 2 are in Asia, 12 are in Europe, and the rest in North America.
Club data was first populated by hand, but soon club organizers and players were able to add the information themselves. The site automatically emails organizers to ensure the information is current and it will soon give visitors the chance to mark information as out-of-date or inaccurate.
WhereToPlayGo is only the start of The Go Hub at Baduk Club with much more functionality to come. The site also provides club admins data on how often their listing was viewed and when. And it also allows meetup attendees to record their games against one another.
The map was created by Devin Fraze and Derek Meer to help empower Go organizers to better serve their community and to help new players find the game.
