    The average player of a CC Pass plays a 9 hole round;

    The average player of a CC Pass purchases a ball that costs 400 credits a sleeve;

    Real income to WGT comes from ball usage (27 cr) and CC members buying passes

    There are many other sources too .

      What I am wondering is any of you big number crunchers ( i try to keep it in low 5 , 6 , 7 digit range ) . Had ever or would ever calculate a modern figure that would represent just how much it costs the members these days for a fully active , hard core , serious , sky's the limit , deep pocketed 250 member CC to try and stay in the top 5 .

      I'm sure that dollar amount , whether it is a total output from the CC or broken down to average per CC member .

      Added to the astronomical amount of level 90 nike balls they purchase .

      And everything else , equipment , boosters , etc .

      I'll bet it would blow us away to find out what they actually have to put out to stay up at the top . Month after month times the amount of other CC's that are doing the same thing goes way above the top 50 more like probably 200 CC's in the rotation .

      Mind boggling ? Uh yep

    Precisely, how do u define top 5.

    I don't think there are 5 CC's out there that could beat Cosa Nostra in a 15 man head to head match up.

    My answer would be zero. If all 250 members played in a CC tourney set for 18 holes on the par 5s every day using a starter ball and the free pass, the clubs 'take' on any one day would be in excess of 300,000 XPs at no cost to the members.

    Sorry, no, not necessarily.  It's an accounting thing.  Real income to WGT is in the form of $$ from members buying credits, $$ from sponsors, $$ from Supersonic or Trial Pay or Peanut Labs etc due to members watching ads and taking surveys or offers, $$ from club manufacturers for advertising there clubs on WGT to the millions of real golfers here, and $$ from the ad agencies supplying the banner ads viewed by the members.

    If a member was given credits by WGT for placing in a tournament or being promoted, there's no cost to WGT and no revenue to WGT when those credits are used.

    Top players accumulate hundreds of thousands of credits with no out-of-pocket expense.  Therefore, when they buy balls or passes, no real revenue to WGT.

    True - but those top players won those credits from all the other players who have to pay to play, and when those competitions run - WGT takes their cut every time.

    I think the question being asked however in the OP - was how much would the 250 members need to spend in order to maintain a top 5 position in the CC levels / experience table.

    Now - since we know that there are no awards to speak of after Level 16 - what would be the point of burning Passes to reach the top of a pretty meaningless table. Who honestly looks at the CC Leaderboard???

    As pointed out by others here - the "top clubs" are measured in results on the course.

    Neil, it doesn't matter that the top players won those credits from players who paid WGT for the credits. WGT already has the revenue.  There is no real revenue to WGT when a top player spends credits won in tournaments.
