THE CASUALS | ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW

WE NEED MORE DIVISIONS - PLEASE SUPPORT OUR REQUEST!

We're now through 5.9K members on 4, maintaining a rate of 100+ new per week. Huge thanks - big welcome all! Appropriate then to present our updated 'all you need to know' brief - so our many new players know precisely how we operate.

Overview

With a history dating back to the original game in 2014 - we've welcomed over 5,900 members to our PS4 TGC 2019 Society in just 12 months. And are the number one Indie - on any format - in the world! We host two skill based (HCP free/ALL Clubs welcome) tournament divisions (on 4) - with multiple exciting promotions and demotions in every single event. CGE = Casuals Golf Elite - Top 100 Ranked. And UCG = Ultra Casuals Golf - 101 and below ranked. We endeavour to provide a leisurely, sporting and non time constrictive golfing agenda for both the skilled golfer; and the more casual player - all aids on/generally 'friendly' courses/circa 7000 yds tees. This while warmly embracing the lesser skilled and the ever increasing band of TGC novices.

Venue Selection

We pride ourself on our event course selections - and visit some of the most beautiful venues in the game. Our new Course Review Committee rates all new courses - providing us with a rich resource of the very best venues. We've also developed collaborative partnerships with many talented designers, who create custom courses for the CGC.

Season Schedule & Purses

One Season = 12 Weeks. Three Majors per season - THE OPEN in W4 - US OPEN W8 - Plus our season ending and defining Fed Ex Cup modelled Super 12s 'Champion of Champions' Series in week 12. We also host three big Championship events with a midweek qualifier in weeks 2, 6 and 10 - including our popular Super 6 World Series in week 6. Which means we host a thrilling and lucrative 'box office' event every fortnight from week 2, to season end! Prize money is big, often maxed out! With at least 95%, VERY often 100% Purses. And our Bonus Prize Funds (BPF's) are also very generous.

Weekly Format & LOW Fees

Mon-Weds - 2X (CGE & UCG) Challenger Series | 36 Holes 2 Days | Premier Level Course

Weds-Fri - 2X (CGE & UCG) Valiance Tour | 36 Holes 2 Days | PLC

Fri-Mon - 2X (CGE & UCG) The Big Week-Ender | 54 Holes 3 Days | PLC

Initial Club Membership Fee 150. Tournament Entry Fee 250. Big Week-Ender Entry Fee 275. Major Entry Fee 300. Our fees are amongst the lowest out there; and for good reason. Because we want new TGC owners whose coin count will be low, to be able to afford to enter our events.

Casuals Respect

We have a zero tolerance on abusive language on our Clubhouse board. ANY defamatory or derogatory comments about CGC or your fellow members - will result in a life ban. Life's tough enough - we're here to have fun!

Nice to see your well run structure expanding Chelsea. I haven't been involved in Societies of late with aides on but may have to take a spin with this one. I assume this will be a 'cross platform' venture? Leaderboards hosted somewhere on the net?

Either way, all the luck for a successful launch!

Well that's two of us! ;D Yeah, thought of you when I was conjuring this thing up. Cool to have you back dude - and bring your buds.

Hey mate. Be nice to have another fine designer aboard. Likin' Woodley btw, on our to do. Nah, no cross platform or external sites. Not the time nor inclination. Plus I prefer to keep this Casuals thing very simple and uncluttered. So CGC Xbox will play out as a seperate entity to PS4 - but with identical management, ethos and schedules. Anyway, hope to see ya down the clubhouse next week. And bring some of your XB buddies - gonna be a lotta fun. :)

CGC ON XBOX | 4 DAYS TO GO!

IN SYNC WITH PS4 CASUALS


And after that splendid week 1 itinerary, we'll be getting into schedule sync with our PS4 Casuals. This will make it easier to coordinate from an administrative perspective. PS4 will be at week 4 at that point, which is a Major week. So our week 2 will also be a Major week, as our two Societies begin to share similar (not identical) schedules. As a consequence our first season will run for a slightly shortened 10 week run. But will still feature our three big MAJORS - our popular 'Super 6 World Series' - and our 'NIKE World Cup of Golf' CHAMPIONSHIP events.

CGC ON XBOX | 4 DAYS TO GO!

NEW SERIES | ASK CHELSEA!

Q1 - HOW MANY MEMBERS?


New little intermittent series now, where I answer some of the MANY q's I've been asked behind the scenes over the months. Number one right now is - Considering Casuals Golf PS4 success, how many members would you like/expect in CGC XBox? Hmm. I always said when I launched CGC, I'd be happy with 50...... 4,000 members later! Lmao. But hey, I genuinely do think 50 is a nice manageable number, and would promote a more personal vibe with members. Plus two divisions @ 25 each sounds good. So to answer - 50 fully active would be nice. If it goes beyond that, which it probably will, that's cool too.

This looks really interesting; you've got a very compelling structure with this Chelsea Saint.  I may quit playing the Official Pro Society to play this one.  You don't happen to have a website or message forum dedicated to this Society do you?

Hi mate. Be cool to have you aboard. No we don't do any external sites. Prefer to keep things simple and uncluttered. CGC forum updates will be regular, members will be kept fully up to date. And of course we have the clubhouse board to chat. For any private chat, all members are welcome to add me - Chelsea Saint. :)

Don't worry about abusive language on the club boards. The censor is set on a 10 year old level 😁

I know you run one hell of a society. Good luck !
