This week's Country Club of the Week is... UK Golfers Elite, a smaller yet very active club focused on having fun and embracing what they have.
We highlighted UK Golfers Elite when we first launched new WGT Country Club features, when they were at Club Level 3. We had a chance to talk to them and wanted to share their progress and comments.
Currently at #12 on the Weekly Leaderboard with more than 152,000 Weekly XP earned, this country club has 95 members and has already reached Club Level 7. They have unlocked a number of country club benefits, including a free Putter Pal and Shot Pal for all of their members, and earning +5% Club XP when members play using a Pass. When they reach Level 8, the club will unlock an XP Bonus of +3% per round, when using a Pass. Keep leveling up your club to unlock these benefits too!
The UK Golfers Elite club chairman, DJW2307 explains UKGE's organization and goal as a WGT Country Club...
"UKGE is very much a team effort with the CC now controlled by a group of guys affectionately known as the Fixers who work on putting together a schedule of events to hopefully cater for all types of players.
We have a full schedule of events running from June to June that feature 5 weekly free events, 3 weekly credit events, 4 12 round Seasonal leagues with tier specific prizes, 6 x 72 major strokeplay events, One on One style single and Pairs leagues, Team events including a Ryder and Walker Cup at the end of the season and we have a Season Long Order of Merit with points collected from the weekly CC events. There is a regular Friday and Saturday Night Beer Club to complement our closed group Facebook Group known as the 19th hole.
The CC has a Chairman (DJW2307) aka Fixer 2 who develops strategy and tournament set up, and is greatly assisted by stevepsheehan (Fixer 9) who heads up our Recruitment and Induction programme, as well as onekeano (Fixer 7) and SteveW65 (Fixer 8) who work on Tournament set up as well. liam91 (Fixer 5) coordinates an ever growing variety of CC v CC events and we have fantastic support from the CC members."
