Hello Everyone :)

We're a pretty established society with 100 members and currently a Level 6 society.

Our society is pretty casual, we do like to get competitive and challenge ourselves in different ways each tournament but its all done in good fun. We play on real life courses for every tournament and follow the tour schedule of a top European player playing on both the European & PGA Tours.

Each tournaments play settings will vary, so we may have handicaos turned on for some tournaments with other aids disabled.

Prize funds will always be a minimum of 66% of all entries with all Majors being 100%. All tournaments will have a realistic prize fund percentage based on the importance of that real life event.

Membership is 150c

Our current live tournament - US Masters @ Magnolia National. It will be live for the next 16 hours before we have 2 Shootout tournaments to get some cash in the bank:

- 100 Member Classic @ Pinehurst No.2 - To celebrate hitting 100 members.

- Cash Builder Shootout @ Druids Glen

Im from N.ireland so was good to see a course from ireland. it played pretty tough i have to say, very long. Enjoyed the challenge tho.
frustrating tho playing your heart out to remain under par and you see -17  on the leaderboard later when everyone else is struggling to break par.
You guys do any handicap comps?

Ya I have to agree, the original plan was to play from the white tees. Played a quick practice round to see what conditions were like and everything was fine so left it off the blues. Then the wind came along was really looking forward to having people play my course, so it was a bit of a downer.

Our leader managed to get his first round with hardly any wind (HB are fixing the weather for societies in the next patch). Ive learned from it now and will have a fair tournament lined up next.

And yes we do some handicapped events, pretty sure I have 1 or 2 lined up in the next few events. Also hoping to have more Irish courses, currently working on Adare Manor & Ballybunion, with possibly including either Portrush or Royal County Down after :)

Ya our society is mainly about having some fun on real courses, but we do like a challenge from time to time. Nothing thats really punishing, just a fair test.

Last tournament of the season is here!! The Tour Championship.

I left The Players out of our schedule when planning this season simply because I thought there's no better place to finish the season than TPC Sawgrass.

So its playing off the back tips with normal firmness and fast greens.

Course plays really well and if you are an experienced player of Sawgrass from TW games on EA then you should find this course easier than most, just beware of those downhill puts coz they are fast!!

Entry Fee - 400c
PrizeFund - 90%

This is our last event, meaning that the next season will begin in October. More details to arrive soon.
