PS4 and XB1 players might remember that I used to organize no aids tours and tournaments when TGC 1 first came out, three years ago.

I have decided to recreate that in a new PS4 Society that will be called « No training wheels ».

No training wheels will imply no grid, no wind meter (just direction), no shot suggestion, no zoom camera but will include precise measurement. A lot like what TGCTOURS is doing in their weekly (or semi-weekly) tours. We will only have 18 holes daily tournaments however.

Where No training wheels will be different than other no aids Societies, is that there will be no fee to become a member, no entry fee for tournaments and obviously no purses to participants. The clubhouse will be very basic.

The Society Is public and considering all the restrictions, I don't expect people to line up at the door but you're welcome to play "real" golf.

Are you serious?  :o

Maybe I think less enjoyable on real golf without aid?  I wish add caddy will help it player knows do to pin flag.

I like the sound of this!

I have been looking for another daily society and also want to dip my toes back into no aids.
Will be sending a request this evening (although leaving for vacation, so will not be able to play for a week  :( )

Just search for No training wheels and join. After second thoughts,I decided that the Society would be public.

I have looked everywhere I could think of but have not been able to find how we could remove the crowd in Society's tournaments.

Is it even possible ? Really useless bunch...can't even stop the ball when it hits them.
