From a business standpoint, status quo on pricing makes huge sense. Yes, there is economic misery happening around the world but this is an elective diversion and WGT stands to gain majorly by not doing anything. I've already seen players I haven't seen in years and lowering prices to attract new business just doesn't make sense.
I get the sentiment but WGT is probably one of the few businesses that will survive this crisis without doing anything. Think about it-if you're not going out spending money and looking for a cheap diversion, WGT fits the bill. I suspect ball sales have skyrocketed. :-)
I totally agree with everything you say from a business point of view. However lots of people have and are loosing their jobs, here in Australia 2000cr costs $30AUD. That will get you 2 sleeves of virtual titleist balls or 50 passes and some Callaways.
I know if I play all day those passes and balls will be gone within a day or 2.
$30 will go a long way in providing basics for my family and I know if I was to spend $60 or so a week a divorce would be on the cards.
i agree with the OP, just for a short time whilst we come to grips with what is happening in the world it would be a nice gesture from WGT to do a 2 for 1 on passes, lower the prices or up the video limit so we can at least play a great game and be competitive.
The pay monthly idea, even if it’s $40 a month to get endless supplies of passes equipment and balls would encourage more people to play, clashes and turfs would be more competitive instead of one or two clubs dominating everything.
Everyone will have a view on this, their is no right or wrong answer just a thought and I’m not looking for an argument just putting out ideas for the community especially for those who will find themselves unemployed.
