  • TGC Tour RULES AND GUIDELINES

    Purpose
    To offer an online league format that facilitates all that we enjoy about playing the Sport of Golf. To make Tournament settings on each round that compare to PGA standards.

    Integrity
    Golf is a sport of honesty, all players are expected not to treat this like a game but treat it as if you were actually participating in live Events. Please do not cheat or manipulate the Game to give yourself and advantage. We encourage play with other online players but one can play by themselves or with a ghost ball. Scores get automatically added via TGC API so no need to enter scores. Mulligans are allowed only if there is a miss read or hardware/game error. Multiple simulator platforms will be in play.

    TGC Tour welcome to all TGC players. No need to sign up, just play in the posted events. Tour Schedule is found in the online play section http://golfsimulatorforum.com/forum/...or/online-play

    Handicap
    We suggest playing Q School so you can establish a handicap. http://golfsimulatorforum.com/forum/...-2017-q-school
    If you don't have a handicap then you will be placed at 0 until a handicap is established.
    Tour events results can be found here http://golfsimulatortours.com and on the individual tournament threads on this forum.

    How to Play
    The TGC tour allows tournament play by yourself, online with others using TeamSpeak http://golfsimulatorforum.com/forum/...teamspeak-info or playing with Ghost players. We understand that some online players may have time restrictions so we suggest you play with the method that suits you best.

    Tour Account
    Before playing a tour you must create a tour account on http://golfsimulatortours.com . We strongly suggest to keep your tour account name, screen name and forum name the same.

    Mulligans
    Mulligans are permitted for shots that are a misread or phantom shots depending on the hardware. Please be honest to yourself and the rest of the Tour members when taking a mulligan.

        are the green speeds and firmness a standard setting or are they up to the player? I just noticed them on the interface.

            Should the green speed and firmness not be locked for the tour to make it equal for everyone?? Would be nice to see them change from week to week to make it more like the tour. Just a thought.

            If you are registered here, you don't have to register there...... There is for players who are not registered here....so it directs you to here. Only one registration is needed.

              Just looking for some clarification on the tour. Is playing solo allowed? I read one set of rules that states you must play online with a live person and I read another set that says you can play solo with shot recording. Which is it? I'm pretty sure I know the answer...just want to be on the right page if I decide to join.

                You can play by yourself with shot recording on. I don't know that I could play otherwise as I am on call at my job most of the time and need to get rounds in when time allows and it would be very difficult to set something up. Not to mention the extra time to play with 2 or more. I am sure others are in my boat also.

                  To answer your question with the first tour we had, you had to play with someone live. Now, with the current tour, that is no longer a rule. I prefer to play alone as well. I actually get into a better rhythm.

                    Thanks for the response! I'm gonna hot the Q School tomorrow and try and get into some events soon. Looks like a lot of fun.

                      Welcome to the tour..... I find it quite addicting. I play a few practice rounds.... take mental note of how to play certain holes and then hit a few on the beach ...... The tour brings TGC to a whole other level.

                      Keither goes a little extreme but I think he's ranked #1 so maybe he's on to something. Lol. Just so you know Keither and I are tour commissioners. Welcome. Have fun. Some guys like to play together.

                      So how do I sign-up for the TGC tour and tournaments? I know I can access tournaments via TGC itself, but should i be listed as a tour member somewhere with the nickname I have here?
