The YELLOW BRICK ROAD CC is looking for fairly keen Club Clashers

We are rebuilding a dormant WGT club that a group of us have just reversed into following the death of the owner at our old club. We discovered that if the owner dies 'in harness' then WGT won't let anyone else take over and the club is therefore sentenced to die a slow zombie death which seems idiotic as we all spent lots of time and credits to take the club from level 5 to level 19...

We have literally only just got going at the new club but members and above can create whatever tournaments they want to play. The old club had 10 to 15 ongoing tournaments at all times. We used to have a mixture of free to enter stroke play, bracket and CTTH tournaments with a 500 credit purse (donated by a group of the top players in turn) championship once a week. I like to play on uneven lies and with the set of the week so I set tournaments up to suit myself which a few of the better (or jaded) players play in as well and we set a nominal 25 credit entry fee as WGT requires a fee to play set of the week for some reason.

One of my aims at the new club is to come up with a very simple handicap system only for the purse championships to try and level the playing field between the outrageously good players and the rest of the club so that everyone feels that they have a chance of winning something! I am also exploring a club voice app as some players like to chat to each other while they play which personally I find rather bizarre but each to their own...

We endeavour to get into the top 100 of the Clashes driven by a regular turn out of 50 keen'ish clash players.

Other than that we just ask players to play regularly and we prune players that haven't played for a month but they are always welcome to re-join if they rediscover the joys of playing WGT at a later date...

If this sounds like your kind of Club then apply to join...

Cheers!
