Anyone else had a go at this? Seems like easy money. As long as you can beat your handicap once every 5 rounds you cant lose. That's if they pay up of course. I signed up on Tuesday, played Thursday and beat my handicap but haven't heard from them. They say up to 3 days. Let's see how long it takes.

Played Saturday and got an mail Wednesday saying $50 would be credited into my account..
Of course the temptation is to double the bet next round.. AGC take a % of the prize pool so really they can't loose

Yeah. I joined up last week. Played Monday and beat Hcp.

Got notified late thursday. They say 3 days.

 

I did the $20 so got $100 :)

 

mind you, cap came down by 3 so be a bit harder to back it up...

Yeh still, $50 isn't bad. Especially if you miss out on winning the comp.

I certainly enjoyed it while playing ok. Puts that little more "oomph' into the game when you realise you're nicely ahead with a few holes left. Start thinking about what you need at Drummonds or the bottle-o...

Yeah, I wondered after the first couple of days when the results were already in golflink. But i got one of their guys on the "chat" bit on the website. He said you get notified normally in the evening of 3rd day after the round. It didn't come through till well after 10pm (got it following morning after going to bed thinking I'd been swindled).

 

You get an email, and then the result appears on their site.

Ah sweet I feel a bit better. However I see the both of you have received the minimum prize. They suck you in buy saying you could win up to $500 for the $20 buy in.

I've already spent my 5 hunj at DG's 😂

Yeah. I was thinking/hoping there'd be a middle ground and maybe get $150 or something. But I think Skelz is right below. They probably are finding more than 1 in 5 players are going under cap as well, so that would take all the prize-money (and AGC's 20%).

It needs a lot of players, and only say, 1 in 6 or 7 going under cap so that there is extra left over to divvy out.

I saw that caddie challenge thing somewhere. Might have to take another peek. Where did you see it Skelz?

 

edit> just seen its linked with golflink. Same idea, entry is $5 or $10. You have to get over 34 stab pts in a round to start getting voucher prizes. So similar idea. I might go in that too.
