After repeating my senior year 17 times, I am finally prepared to declare for the draft.

Welcome to the forums and glad to see your enthusiasm about out contests. Dream Team sign-up isn't for a couple of months yet. I see you also threw your hat in the ring for the Major. Given the qualifying criteria for that field, if there are more than 25 who sign up, there's a good chance you may be on the outside looking in just because the way that event is set up, there's an emphasis put on designer experience when setting the field.
Fret not though, there will be an official TGCT Design Contest coming very soon that I think will be right up your alley. There will be no pre-entry requirements and the design window will be longer than that of other contests. Watch for info on the TGCT Challenge Circuit Design Challenge coming up shortly after the field for the major is announced at the beginning of February!
My PGA2K21 Courses: Safe Haven - Shores (T) | Grovetown American G.C. | The Flamingo (w/ VctryLnSprts) | Merced Municipal GC | Evangelist Golf Club (w/ VctryLnSprts) | Fisheye Bay GC | Necedah Pines GC | Hoback Range Sports Club | Avondale American G&CC | Mayday's Backyard | Pleasure Island Fun Park (mini golf)
Don't worry, no need to register interest just yet. We'll open up a sign up a week or so before the start date and will publicise the exact time it opens pretty heavily before then. Nothing fancy in terms of sign ups, just pop your name down. We'll then do a draft with the captains and reveal the teams a couple of days before you start building so people can chat through ideas etc with their teams. It may be that we don't get a full 24, it may be that we get more than that, but it seems to fit nicely.
Can't remember if we've been up front about this yet, but both JC and I will be judging and not competing. I'll do playthroughs for each course as well for some feedback and I'm sure others will do as well. We'll obviously be welcoming more judges as well, but again, that'll be nearer the time.
Glad people are looking forward to it - we think there's a huge amount of scope for building on the success of last year's contest and can't wait to get it underway.
1) A contest pretty heavy on fun. It is all in good spirit, but sign up knowing there will be jokes and friendly digs. Mostly at gamesdecent 's lack of playtesting and ryanmcconnell 's inability to playtest 2) Live Draft as per community wishes. Think Wheel of Drink on steroids. Exact date and location tbc, but bring drink and a cup. 3) Prior to that, a full mock draft from Trayys and myself. 4) Playthroughs of each course with feedback from Trayys and myself 5) A tight two week window for publishes. Captains may elect to coordinate publishes as per last year.
In all seriousness, we want this contest to have a bit of a lighter, jokier feel than some of the more serious affairs. It's a team game and we anticipate a good amount of friendly trash talk between teams. Pretty sure the captains will set the tone.
A reminder of dates:
20th May - 27th May: sign ups open. There will be a separate thread for this. It's not first come, first served due to the draft nature and depending on uptake numbers (we see you, CC contest), we may not be able to take everyone who signs up. 28th-29th May: mock drafts and live draft. Post draft, join team Discord channel and discuss ideas. Possibility of trades has been mooted... 1st June (12am GMT - screw you all for a change): start courses 17th August: publish window opens 1st September (12am GMT): publish window closes.
Questions? Trash talk? Lemonade? Excitement? Desire to plant a giant tree? Let us know.

So if I'm understanding this correctly anybody can enter with no limit on number of entrants. But only a set number will be drafted? And it's live, so we can watch people's hopes and dreams be shattered in real time?
Do not take the above post seriously.
