I signed up for WGT last January played 3 holes and thought too hard for me🤣
I then reconnected with a grade school friend who had been playing for 11 years, he encouraged me to pick it up. I started playing again on Sept 30, 2021. I joined two CC’s and said hi, but no replies.
I decided to look for an active club as I had a lot to learn and was hopeful a more established club, may have a better infrastructure in place. The top clubs showed me they would review my invite. ONE club TPC the peoples club, the owner contacted me within hours and asked if I would commit to communicating on the forum occasionally, play club tournaments, and try to get 10,000 XP points a month. I do that in a day or two. I was level 34 or 36. He opened up a top 5 club that has been around more than a decade to me.
Instantly I was welcomed by several people at the legend tier that invited me to private message them any time. They have a club room on Discord that allows us to text chat and or voice chat safely and effectively. They had a pinned section with every kind of tutorial one could imagine. A newbies treasure trove. Nothing easy, but if one wanted to truly learn about golf basics and WGT, it was ALL there. I was about to buy clubs but the pinned advice was wait a bit, I did wait two weeks and had beautiful clubs. People saw I was being active and reached out and offered to play and voice chat and teach me about flops and chips and pitches and punches none of which I knew even existed. I was invited to ALT games, three legends and little ol me, everyone rooting me on. 6 weeks ago I had a 104 average. Last night I got below 70. I have worked very hard but have had all the help and friendship I could ever ask for. I am well into the 90’s level now. I am not concerned with my rank as much as leveling up to get the clubs I will use permanently so I can learn all the calculations.
There are contests that are very fun. Most of the top players have all they need, they number well over 100. I came in last in one contest a few weeks ago and a legend pro who won, sent me his prize of the best set of balls I had ever used. I was grateful but it was like giving me crack LOL. Another story, but he wanted to donate to the lowest guy. I may have the worst handicap and the owner had everyone’s handicap figured and I actually won one of those. I am not alone. I have seen other new people come and everyone gets the same welcome and help if they want it. There are high ranked people that join that instantly have 100 friendly games with people at their own level.
I strongly encourage you to consider joining The Peoples Club if you enjoy this game. Friendships, fun and competition. I am very happy here and so so grateful for the generosity and warmth I have experienced. Hope to meet some new members soon. 💖🙏🏻💖
