Owner’s Objectives

It's been a while since I expressed some of my objectives for the CC . First of all I like and respect everyone that joins our club . I realize that not everyone knows what a CC is all about . Many have different reasons for joining . I really don't know how many of the other clubs are run . They are all different . What I want to emphasize in our CC is that whatever tier you are . That you feel comfortable here , part of a team of players that come here to find conditions that enable them to improve their game , hone their skills , lower their scores ,lower their averages , move up in tiers . Enjoyably and comfortably with the conditions that challenge them enough to keep that drive without the frustrationsof regular game play . All that is completely possible by either creating those tourneys yourself or by messaging me about it . Or someone else in your tier that has been creating tourneys . Any kind of information that you need to know should be provided here , any kind of appp , calculator , help , tutorial , tournament , statistic , message , opinion , gripe , compliment , etc , etc . Should able to be aqcuired here ( or in our website , as it may be easier there ). With your help , all of this can be done easily . We already have a good start . I am going to be here for a very long time trying to achieve all this . For any of you that think it's a good direction for your CC to go in . Then lets keep on keepin on . Sincerely , Your Co team member PDB1 , Paul ( sitting here on a rare rainy day ) May the SUN always be with you

       As far as playing to lower your average and move up in tier . The CC unlimited play single player round is by far the best format . 
      
       The unlimited play format means . That one can play a round over and over . One can finish that round , which will make it count . Both on your average and in game completion . Then if you don't like the score you can play it again . 
      
       But the proper way to utilize the unlimited play format to your advantage . Is to end the round before the 9th or the 18th hole . You do this by either just ending the round and replaying it at another time . Or the proper way is to click the menu and click " restart " . That is only available in these unlimited play rounds . Whether you just end the round before it is over or click " restart " . It will not effect your game completion percentage . You can do this as many times as you want . Before the end of the round . The only round that counts is the one you finish . 
      
       So technically and hypothetically you could play until you got a score lower than your average . Finish the round that is lower than your average . ( this is if you are not saturated . ) Then your average will only go down .
       If you are saturated in your tier . None of this matters . Because any score above your average is thrown out , will not count in any format . 

      So anyway what this means is that you are already playing a custom made CC tourney . Custom made to your liking by our very good tourney makers . If you do not find formats and features that you like . Ask them to make them , or make it yourself . 

      So the various custom features make the tournament much more fun than just default settings . So the custom features and the unlimited play " restart " feature . Allow you to play more times . Helping you to learn the course better enabling you to hone your skills .

      You may not be able to beat your average . But you can play a few times until you get a reasonable score that you can live with . Complete the round . Then go play another course a few times until you get a score you like on that one . 

      Remember . If you play a course 23 times . And on each time you restarted before the end of the 9th or the 18th holes . Those rounds do not count at all . Even if you never finish the round . None of them will count . 

      If you have a good score on your 24th try and you finish that round . It will count . The only one that will count . 
      This is the best way to prepare oneself for the tougher features of play in the WGT tourneys . And the very tough multi player stroke play rounds with players of your tiers from all over WGT . Where you want to perform well . You don't get to restart in those . They count in every way .

    Hi all....I've been trying to have a mix of tournaments that should fancy everyone. I've been moving around tees and setting up tiered tournaments with the lower tiers (H - M) playing to there default or easier (Front Tee;s) and using VF green speeds instead of tournament. WGT has yet to institute a "default green" option, and I don't see that happening anywhere in the near future. The upper Tiers tournaments I've been moving the tees around and set up the green speeds as Tournament (with a championship thrown there every so often). There are a lot of courses that a lot of members enter, but some that aren't drawing much interest at all. I try to shy away from those, but in order to be able to give you a variety, I use them sparingly but try to make them with an easier set ups. If anyone has any ideas about a set up you'd like to see, or if you want to set up a tournament yourself, just please let me know before doing it so I can keep track. Thanks for being such great members....VOTSCC rules...Jim

    Those that have been setting up the tournaments have been doing a great job, there is such a range to choose from and it's almost always easy to find a tourney that I have not entered yet.
    If I had any request they would be for maybe at least 1 single play and maybe a tourney or two with a shorter time range, such as maybe a 2 round 5 day max tourney (1st round 2 days, 2nd round 3 days). I know I can start a tourney, but I sort of feel out of place or stepping on toes when I do so, even though I know that's not the case.
    Anywho I want to thank those that do set up the tourneys.

      Yes Gene . Any format that you or anyone likes or thinks should be in the rotation . Should be available . 
      Jim is also interested and would like to discuss the details with you . Anything you guys work out is GR8 . 
      BTW . Please step on our toes . They are your toes too . Plus Jim would probably like the abuse too much . Lol .
      whatever the hell that meant ?

      ON THE OTHER HAND . IF YOU ARE TIRED OF BEING STUCK IN THE MIDDLE LEVELS .
      This is as good a place as any to repost this information . 
      My article 9 SHADES OF GREY . Explains all of the ways one can spin their wheels while having fun . Meaning formats that do not lower your average and do not count for anything . 
      There is one very big exception . 
      Match play rounds played and won against a player of a higher tier . WGT gives a super huge giant bonus points award for match play matches won by a lower tier . You can actually drop your average 2 or 3 points in 1 round by beating a player of an upper tier in a scored match play round . ( this would normally take 50 to 100 rounds to drop your average in stroke play ) . This feature is one way myself and many others came up in WGT . 
      In the " FIND A GAME " or the " CREATE A GAME " features you will find many upper tier players that will play you . It is hard and tough . You will have to play at their green speeds . You will make many friends with lots of experience and good tips . They will even let you win sometimes . They will sometimes gift you clubs or balls if you have good matches and they see you are fun and serious . This is no bullshyt . You will find upper tier players with 10,000 to 15,000 match play rounds . They just like to play . 
      It is a very viable way to tier up . Especially if you are not new . And you are a man . The wins , gifts and the gimmes will not come easy . But they will come 
      I have written about this many times before . After this mornings match with Charlie " fairyqueen "  You all remember her . Still a very good friend of mine . And one that I am confident will return to VOTSCC someday . Who not surprisingly was conned into starting their own CC by the infamous harryskunk in his never ending search to build the ultimate CC . POND JUMPERS ELITE . A name I came up with by the way . They loved it . Needless to say and totally expected harry left without a word after 2 weeks . 
      After I showed Char the match play bonus . She ran with it . 

    • fairyqueen moved up to the Legend tier..
    • Yesterday . A little early I would say . As she has quite awhile at level 41 before she will be able to get high level equipment . 

      But she is very good . When I met her in October she was an amateur .
      She soon joined . And left . But we play about once a week . 
      Anyway she has been taking advantage of that match play bonus . 
      Much easier for a female . 
      But still a very good way for anyone . Especially if you have been playing your ass off and seemingly getting nowhere for a long time .
      This is a very valuable tip . Many of you could use it to your advantage . It doesn't happen overnight . But it is much faster . 
     
        BTW this bonus feature is only available through the Tour Master level . All levels Tour Master and below can get that bonus playing a tier or 2 or 3 or 4 above their own . The higher the tier above your own that you can defeat , the higher the bonus point average drop . 
      At the level Legend this bonus stops .
