So, just to clarify before I tell someone something incorrect, any of my golf friends can sign up for a GK plays? They don't have to be a member, they don't have to have ever filed a review? And if a great opportunity comes up I could book every slot for my club?

Hmmmm...that changes things! :-)

Chris has a good point, a member could simply buy out the whole event and do as they wish with those spots.

I have no problem with buying multiple spots. Go to the GK events page and scroll through the past events, plenty examples of people doing it. I understand people feeling they missed out, but you snooze (like I did), you lose. Most events/plays usually don't sell out until a week or 2 before, but people were itching for this one. So, no pitchforks, no controversy, get in early next time.

Johnny's house, Johnny's rules . . . but if I had a vote, I would vote for the old way, join up and play away.

sat on the sidelines long enough so I'm chiming in.

1. There have been no issues when multiple slots were purchased before (some with 11 slots) so why now?
2. I purchased each in regular channel just like everyone else and asked permission from Johnny. In fact, I waited until Friday (3 days after it was open so other people can get in).
3. Johnny has always advocated bringing new people in and invite them to the GK events which I have done so before and continue to do so. Given how most Gk members are very positive and share the love of golf above anything else, I really don't get where this is coming from.





People - let's bury this and move on already.

Yes they can.

No, they don't.

Yes you can.


I'm serious, they are completely open for all to enjoy. I've met some wonderful people this way already, some have gone on to join GK, some have not, its all good.

I had to arrange for some assistance over that weekend to help take care of my mom. Was hoping to get in today, came back saw that it filled up and no go. All good. Not sure I want to deal with Labor Day weekend traffic anyways. Have fun folks.

Hammer, you did everything completely fine and yes, people have bought out multiple spots before, all is good. Just coupled with the quickness this event sold out and there only being 36 spots total, it brought up some questions in my mind (and yes, I know that's a minefield). These events Johnny puts together at top of the line golf courses at the price he negotiates, well, I think it would be naive not to think that someone could take advantage of that for a corporate outing or for resale or some other reason as negotiating that many spots, at a good time of day, at a great course isn't an easy thing to do.
Again, this is Johnny's boat and he alone is the skipper we all just passengers. I'm sure, if like with the SPAM he has to deal with on occasion if he felt something was amiss he, and he alone would deal with it . . . and yes Vic that makes you Gilligan.
