    Over the past month , I upgraded my putter and wedges even though I really didnt need to . It cost me 5,680 credits the credits I earned from doing the videos . The total cost for my current club set up is 14,470 credits . The point I want too make is that you can play this game with no out of pocket cost to you . I have been playing now for over 3 years and never spent a penny out of my pocket . I have top clubs and currently have over 4000 credits in my account all of which are free .

    Take your time and learn the game . Do the videos and surveys to earn free credits and you will be able to get the clubs that you want . All you have to do is put your time in , save your credits and upgrade as you need to . Now all that I have to worry about is keeping balls in stock . I dont think that will be a problem . Hope this helps and good luck with your game . :-)

             I agree with Lonniescott711 it takes a bit to get used to the way certain courses play on the WGT, but its a fun & challenging journey , do the vids & surveys , save your credits for upgrades & just have fun, I deposited 20$ in June 2014 , for club upgrades but I should have waited till at least  level 59 (for higher trajectory clubs) imo , but not a dime since, all earned in free credits....    : )                         p.s  my dad played Pebble beach in the mid 1950s for 5$ with pull cart  lol........

    Buy a house in St Andrews, buy a residents season ticket (approx £180) and have a choice of six 18 hole courses and one 9 hole course to play pretty much whenever you like, entitles you to play the Old, New, Jubilee, Eden, Castle, Strathtyrum and Balgove.

    For me it's certainly a damn sight cheaper than playing here, if you take away the buying the house part, lol.

    I've got all my stuff from the 'earn free credits', too, for about 12 months total now. But recently the livegamer payout says 1 instead of 3 and the daily late night offers are gone on my end = less credits, so I choose less game time. Has anyone else noticed this? Does it affect other players or is in different for individual members?

    Guess I'm lucky to be in the southeast Alabama area.  The state has several courses on the Robert Trent Jones trail that are great and quite inexpensive.  In fact, the junior Masters is played about an hour east of me in Dothan, and I think the LPGA has a tour event up in Montgomery, if memory serves right.
