As a club owner, I hesitate to jump into this discussion.
I agree with doing something about the rewards. But right now the facts exist.
There is no difference between 4th and 50th and and deal with it that way. Nobody has to play, no BD club member is expected to buy passes, and because of new scoring rules … we have restricted use of superpasses. I didn't want to do that, but we adjusted.
Goal is just to be in top 50 and get the 4 free passes for every member who played. And it is fun to win the match. But I have members who don't like it, so they won't play. Nobody gets kicked from Black Diamond GC for not playing. It's for the ones that enjoy it.
The idea of buying who knows how many passes to get into top 3 is silly.
