    Unless I am doing something wrong, this is terrible.  Under flash, there was always match play opponents within minutes and you could easily search for ANY game.  Now I have to search under practice and scored, but I can never, ever find a match.  I create my own and no one enters and I search for games and none ever exist.  I had stopped playing for 6+ months as this web based version fails in comparison to the flash version, but please give me tips regarding match play.  Thanks.

      I'm pretty sure you saw this coming . Match Play has been slowing steady for 10 years .

      PCEA still offers the format .

      But I'm not sure how to drum up opponents .

      Good luck with that .

    You have 112 players on your friend list and your CC has 95 members. Surely you could get a match with one of them Just send them messages to set up a game. Random players has never been a good way to set up a match play game.

      Yes and a very vital component of a CC . To be able to friend , chat , inquire , play , communicate with ALL the members . On a much closer , team like basis . Should be a given in a CC . If it is not . It would be a good time to discuss this with other members . Initiate a new effort or efforts to bring the CC more together .

      Same with the friends on your list . If they are not in your CC . Then it is a good 2nd list of prospective multiplayer mates .

      IDK about never . But certainly for at least 7 years now .

      Originally Match Play was the main format played in WGT .

      Stroke Play was introduced several years later . With all of the statistics and structure to tier up and improve equipment . Stroke Play then became the popular choice .

      It was very common to see players with 15,000 & 20,000 Match Play Rounds and several thousand Stroke Play rounds .

      This not a new revelation . But is perhaps the hardest to accomplish successfully in a CC .

      There are 2 main agenda's that make CC's such a preferred direction .

      1) Is to provide for WGT CC members the ultimate environment . With all the available formats and information and guidance and support . In which they can optimize and maximize their game play . Comfortably lowering their averages . Moving up in tiers . Acquiring their optimal equipment .

      2) Is to provide an environment of their peers . To be able to organize with reasonable effort . Rely on those peers to fulfill the many needs required to consistently engage in the various multiplayer formats .

      That # 2 , is the hardest part . Not every CC member is like minded in their passion for multiplayer formats .

      One would think that players wanting to be involved in team and group environments would all enjoy multiplayer formats . That is far from the case . One may not find anyone in a CC that shares those interests .

      # 1 is the first and foremost successful agenda . And hard enough to maintain in itself .

      Unless a CC gets lucky as they grow . To have multiplayer lovers amongst them . Then it will always be a battle .

      And will take GR8 efforts from those multiplayer enthusiasts . To enjoy those formats with out frustration .

    In addition to borntobesting's suggestions, if you use the Discord app, you can join the Discord Open Golf server.  With over 300 members, it's pretty easy to find multi-player games (including match play games) at almost any hour of the day.
