This week we are off to Silent Dunes by jcollick , an awesome entry into the dream team design contest. Justin is still a relatively new designer in the community, but this course is far from "rookie" level stuff. Think you all will enjoy.
From the designer: Silent Dunes is my entry for the blue team in the 2021 Dream Team Competition. Inspiration for this course didn’t come from any other course in the game or IRL, but rather I took inspiration from a river I spend some of my summer days on and thought it’d be cool to recreate the tight weaving of the river with a golf course taking up the bordering lands.

And there it is, a 64 third round. Hit two in the water courtesy of stupid grey fasts on approaches, along with half a dozen lip outs. Hopefully I can shoot -15 or whatever in the final round to get somewhere above the middle of the pack.
Not going to lie, this week I played with a ghost (turn based), I don't usually, (well apart from TST on Sunday) but I thought it would probably slow me down, and it did, fransslabak was my opponent of choice (well played btw).
Lip out after lip out in rd1, I could not believe it, but happens to you all I guess? And don't get me started on horrible bounces trolled i was being
2 bogey free rds later (thats a plus) and yep you guessed it, im probably, no definitely missing the cut by 1 or 2 (as per norm)

Looks like I'll make the cut but I won't score a third green thingy because of a -7 final round. -22 halfway and -43 total
So, I'll be here next week!
Unless, of course, I've been stupid enough to go low enough in the promo event to be forced to go to Plat anyway... (-58 for that one) up mup kupen nup and SMIFFYLFC79: Please tell me you scored lights out in the promo, so that I don't have to go back to the place where greens are always red...
Really lovely course I thought. Managed to knock it round in -22 at the half-way point so I may make my first cut in months and start to knock off some of the demo marks. Looking forward to the last 2 rounds if I make the number.
Course listing: - Dunstan Head (runner-up Rookie Contest 2020) - Shadwell Heath (WCOD 2021 side-contest) - Locked Stable (CC 2021) - Victoria Gardens (Dream Team 2021)

Enjoyed the course quite a bit the first couple of rounds. Very nice work jcollick
-23 through 2 makes for a very stress free cut. Currently T-15, but I'll probably move to like T-30 by the time the cut happens. Need a couple of sub-60 rounds on the weekend to lock up a solid finish.
Will be a minimum of 2 slots available for the top 3 tours.
I figured I'd better try to take the conventional way of promotion by collecting green marks. And with only one greenie missing, I'm optimistic that my -52 (-14 (not enough SMIFFYLFC79) -15 -10 -13) will be enough to get me back to Plat as of next week.
As I told many times, it'll be a win-win situation for me anyway. Either I stay here and continue enjoying my official TGCT rounds with fabulous courses and adequate conditions, or, well, I can brag at family gatherings with being in the top tier at TGCT (without telling anyone that I don't make a single cut).
Yup. Not a lot of wiggle room in the 3 pro tours at the moment. Promo event isn't going to see many people shift up in Plat, Elite and Kinetic unless there are a lot of voluntary demotions for some reason. Better get to grinding out those green marks!

Doyley: We're aware WGR points didn't get handed out last week - not intentional and we're fairly confident we can retro fix that - will let you know if/when that is done.

Doyley: should return to the normal schedule you set up for the next one. Apologies for the slight error.
Aug 17, 2022 13:56:21 GMT -5
Doyley: Just an FYI - for those that chose the recurring donation option - we had a slight issue with the recurring portion of it that is now fixed. It's likely if you had a previous recurring donation skipped (the first one always worked) it was sent in today

Doyley: We'll obviously be holding off on any next season talk until after the info is out on 22nd - we can make a plan of attack after we find out if it's a release day or a release date (in the future)

theclv24: I figured it might be interesting to a few folks here, and I Ihaven't gotten huge turnout on the raffles so a $10 gives you a decent chance to win.
