  • CC of the Week - The Madrid Golf Club

    29 Oct 2014

    This week's Country Club of the Week is... The Madrid Golf Club, a Spanish-speaking country club with active members that has grown quickly.

    The Madrid Golf Club currently has 206 members who have helped the club reach Club Level 8 (approaching Level 9!), with more than 5.3 million XP (experience points). At Club Level 8, they have unlocked a number of country club benefits, including a free Putter Pal and Shot Pal for all of their members and earning +3% XP per round. Keep playing using CC Passes to level up your club to unlock these benefits too.

    Club owner johnman1 gives us some insight into the club...

    "We are a Spanish speaking club which has grown very quickly during the past year. This has enabled us to be a little more choosy with our members and support the active type player. Our members participate in our forum with videos, music, jokes and anything else that is the weekly topic.

    We are very active with weekly tournaments, Country Club Clashes and different tier level matches. We have four very busy team members which I would like to mention for their great participation in our success: Kas64 (Development Director), Tiburn7k7k (Tournment Director), Mafias1982 (Members and Support Director) and myself, johnman1 (CEO).

    We do have some openings at the moment and would welcome active players of any tier."
