Why are there so many inactive members?
I wasn't talking about club members, merely talking about the internet users. I can guarantee we have internet users that are not club members.
My C-Tiers always have shirts or discs for the players, then cash for the pros.....so if you play well as a pro, you get money, otherwise, I try to keep the am entry low so that you play for the am status of playing, not for prize sandbagging, and you get our great courses.
Its a personal thing with me, I think that too many Am's expect a big payout and the reality is that they should be playing for the love of the game, if not, then step up. As the TD, I relay my beliefs in the system that I feel it should be. Right or wrong, if I run it, I run it my way. Just me being the LEO that I am, and ensuring that what I feel is fair, is shared. Hopefully then as well, those people traveling will think its a cheap event, and can spend more money in my community, which in turn helps us all out in the long run.
