Some may have noticed that I have started a club with an "open door" policy. We welcome anyone to come play even if they never intend to stay. This idea is not going over well for a couple reasons.
1) Players would need to leave their current club temporarily to do this.
2) Most are stuck in the current paradigm of the "way it works".
3) There are "controlling" club owners who fear losing players.
And I am sure there are more reasons. ...many.
What WGT needs is a GUEST category added to the existing categories of recruit, member, and veteran. They could make this function optional for club owners to use. If club owners use it, players would be allowed to instantly upon clicking "join as Guest" to enter the country club, have access to the forums, play in tournaments, and whatever other permissions were granted to this category without leaving their own club.
This would create a much more interactive environment for clubs wanting to use this feature. Having created the Simpatico Springs WGT Tour for all WGT members, I can't even imagine how much easier it would be with this "Guest" feature. I could write a book about all the useful and creative things you could do with this feature. I wouldn't care if any playing they do gives credit to their home club. I just want to create some fun for the entire WGT community. I didn't create the Tour to gain members, or out of some altruistic sense of purpose. I did it because this is my vision of what I want from WGT. This Guest feature would give so much flexibility in helping to expand WGT.
