    You are a member of a country club. Perhaps someone there could set some club tournaments with something other than default green speeds.

    I like coin games, it’s almost all I play. The one thing I don’t understand about them is when I am trying to join a game and it is searching for an opponent and it is taking for ever and I decide to try a different room and find myself 50000 coins shorter and didn’t get to play. That kind of sucks!! I guess I should be more patient.

    I agree with bossbird, if you are a true champ, then you can be Gr8 on any green speed. Even the pga players have to play different green speeds. The winners are those that adapt to the differences in courses. Anyone who wants only one speed green, isn't really a champ. Military taught me a very useful theology, improvise, adapt, and overcome. If getting some constructive criticism makes us trolls, then get off the bridge.

    for the simple fact that you have made it to 13 green speed and the players u r playing have not meaning u should be able to play any greens but your opponent has not so its only fair some of you like yourself take this fkn game too serious its a video game and u wont make a living and it sure wont impress me that u can play a video game its pethetic go play some real golf youll be begging them to not mow the greens bud........

    As a tour champ perhaps you should be proficient at all speeds , ! A bad workman always blames his tools .

    Agreed.  Perhaps it's time for the OP to relearn how to play on the slower green speeds.  I'm sure he has the talent to do it.

    I actually think the OP has a valid point.

    The lack of any Champ speed type greens - along with the fact WGT allows for pretty generous gimme putts to be taken and the green putting tip - makes coin rooms - even easier than regular play.  If anything, you could say a lot of players are deprived and denied the opportunity to learn and play C13 greens in coin rooms and in turn becoming slow green specialist.  Maybe those players should also be exposed to greater diversity so they can see what they need to work on and be able to progress towards.

    Consider this, you find C13 greens in Clashes don't you?  Why not coin rooms?  They can specify which coin rooms of course, say Rio or Montreal and above. 

    Enough of the kiddy shag carpet ONLY greens that can be much easier to putt on because you don't have to worry about running a ball 5-10 feet past the hole. I don't even have to worry about those low tier players putting off the green because they will be using the putting tip anyway.   

    Even if they remain randomized to an extent - at least it offers more of a variety - than the easier slower greens.

    If that's what it takes, you still overcame it, lol

    @ El I consider it a gift, to get a slower green,plus it doesn't give my opponent a reason to complain, cuz I beat him on his own turf, lol
