The Golf Club PSGL Tour - League Discussion



A thread to discuss the league

Right, my idea for the league is:

- 10 tournaments for the season
- 2 tournaments a month (so a 15 day time limit on each tournament, or no time limit if people want)
- 3 rounds per tournament (could have 4 rounds if people want, but i thought 3 would be a good comprommise)
- 3 'major' tournaments (maybe 4, like in real life)
- Points will be awarded for where you finish in a tournament leaderboard. These points will be added to an overall tour leaderboard, like in real life, and the top three at the end of the tour season will receive a gold, silver or bronze PSGL trophy.

Points will be as follows:

In standard events the points system will be as follows:

1st - 300 Points
2nd - 250 Points
3rd - 200 Points
4th - 175 Points
5th - 150 Points
6th - 125 Points
7th - 100 Points
8th - 75 Points
9th - 50 Points
10th - 25 Points

In major events the points system will then be raised to:

1st - 700 Points
2nd - 600 Points
3rd - 500 Points
4th - 400 Points
5th - 350 Points
6th - 300 Points
7th - 250 Points
8th - 200 Points
9th - 150 Points
10th - 100 Points


Feedback welcome, perhaps more tournaments in the season, more tournaments in a month, more rounds per tournament, a better points system.

Perhaps monthly events to play alongside a main league tour:

King of the Hill Monthly - two or three rounds on a 9 or 18 hole course that can be replayed as often as someone wants to try and improve their score to make it to the top of the leaderboard by the end of a month.

Monthly Par 3 Challenge

An end of season Ryder Cup style event where we split into two teams

Looks good Fish  :113:

Two events a month is good with me and one off events that are optional

Maybe the Majors could be 4 rounds and the "normal" events 3?

I like the proposed structure however I dont think 3 rounds every 2 weeks is great. The other tours i participate in do 4-8 rounds per 7 days! What I think might work is doing 1 3 round tournament every 2 weeks but alongside that have an open tournament where players can contest the course as many times as they like in order to round the best score.

That way, those that want to play as many rounds as possible are able to do so?

Also the pts distribution looks a bit awkward to me. If I finish say 11th/80 one week then 9th/24 the next is it fair I should get more points for the 2nd week when my actual performance has been worse? I think a better idea for points is to have a pot where say 100pts goes in for each player who plays the tournament, and then at the end that pot is split based on %'s to the top 10% of players?

Food for thought

There is a clue in the thread title Davie!! The game is actually called The Golf Club. It's a digital only golf game with less frills than Tiger Woods games of past.

By that I mean: there is no character creator, or no detailed one anyway; there is no way to rank up your player with attributes points; there are no power boosts after you driver the ball, or crazy ways to add spin.

It's a paired down, quite simple but pure representation of golf. It's kind of like playing Tiger Woods on the more difficult settings.

Thanks for the feedback, i think your probably right on the first point. Perhaps a 'King of the Hill' style monthly tournament to run side by with the main tour events would be good.

Interesting thoughts on the points system. Ideally, i'd like to keep it as simple as possible so i don't have to gert the calculatr out to much everyweek  lol  My thinking was to mirror the real PGA system as well as other sports like tennis, with a simplified points system for each even feeding into an overall leaderboard.


Incidentally, my plan is to sort the structure out and make the threads over the weekend and then get the league underway proper from the start of October.

I hope to start the league of this weekend, I've been busy every bloody evening so far this week. But tomorrow night i will wrap up the leaderboards and crown a winner of the preseason tournament and post the calendar up. I've found 10 courses of varying difficulty, some easy, mediums and hards. Its the first season, so we can see how it goes and adjust if needed.

I was reading a few months ago that they were looking into adding some sort of online lobby system, and a basic player progression system. So it will be interesting to see how far they can take it.

How practical/ achievable would it be to get everyone on at the same time for an event? Like team-based event of some description?

It could be worth a try. I'd like to try and hold an end of season Ryder Cup style tourney, as you suggested a while ago.

It might be worth holding a slightly smaller test event mid-season.

I'm going to be offline for the next 4 to 6 days guys, i've had to return my PS4 as they would not just replace the controllers.
I should hopefully have a new one within a week.
