This has to be the most ridiculous, credit grabbing, hair brained idea ever dreamed up by WGT. A company quite well known for silly ideas.
Seriously, $180 to play 2 virtual courses for free for a year?
I used to pay £180 for a years membership of my local 9 hole course. Granted that was a while ago but there are still plenty of courses around where you can get membership for the same or not much more.
If this is the writing on the wall regarding introducing green fees then it's going to see a massive drop in people playing. Perhaps I'm assuming a bit much though, just because it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck doesn't mean it isn't just some nutter dressed up like a duck and quacking.
