We feel the same, we played Majestic mountains in our second game, They scored 10,000 points +. They have been around years and years and we have just been going a year.
All i would say is dont get caught up in the clash, All my club does is just use the free passes, Yet some of these will spend Thousands and thousands of credits just to make it top 3 and get 4 sleeves of balls for 2nd at best! Not worth it one bit.
You might be a new club but you have legends and Champions so you cant expect to be going up against lower clubs who dont have these. You should actually be happy to come up against big clubs as you should be able to beat them in the bonus parts like Green in reg or birdie percentage etc.
