After you create your character, you automatically end up in the Golf Course selection.
You start your golf career in Europe on the beautiful golf course in Helsingborg, which is located in Sweden.
In the right pane, click on start to begin your first round at the virtual golf course.
You can now decide whether you prefer to play alone or together with a partner.
Once you are on the golf course, a small tutorial will familiarize you with the control of the game.
Character level system!
As you may have experienced it yourself, your character rises gradually to its level. You will become a level up,
if you have accumulated enough experience points. Good moves gives you more experience than
something worse. You can monitor the number of experience points at every stroke. If your character has
reached a new level, you receives skill points which you can use to improve your golf skills.
What are skillpoints?
If your golfer has reached a new level, you automatically receives new skill points. With that skill points you can go for a
special training in the training section. There you can improve your skills e.g. your driver abilities.
Upgrading your skills may be charged with OGC Marks. You can receive OGC Marks by playing tournaments
or you can purchase them at the online store.
New golf courses?
On a level up, new fields of golf courses will be unlocked to your character. For a new course available,
you will get a notification in-game and via the in-game journal. Except the very first course all courses are tournament courses.
You will need to finish up with a certain score to unlock the tournament mode for each course.
What are golf tournaments?
On all regular courses golf tournaments are conducted. Tournaments run daily, weekly or at a certain interval,
e.g. every 3 days. Within this period, a player can complete as many games as he wants. Only the best score counts
for the final result. At the end of the tournament the player will receive world ranking points and OGC Marks
according to its tourney placement. The amount of world ranking points and OGC Marks depends on the
particular golf course and the tournament interval.
OGC Open world ranking list!
The world ranking list includes golfers who have ever played a tournament and have gained world ranking points.
You will receive ranking points also to a single region and even for a single course. So it is possible for
instance to be the best golfer in the region of Canada. You can watch the world rankings and other rankings at
the web site. The world ranking is for one season. The best players in one season can be admired in our archives.
What is a season?
The golf year is divided into several seasons. Currently a season runs 3 months. At the end of a
season the best player in the world rankings and the individual regionalists will be chosen.
The winners will be stored in our archive season and thus get an eternal place in the Hall of Fame.
With the start of a season, all the rankings resets and it starts all over again.
Thus, new players have the chance right from the outset to be there.
please note, you will not lose any equipment or regions on season change.

For each game and each completed course you will get dollars. Dollars are needed to pay the green fee and the tournament entry fee.
You can also convert OGC Marks into dollars in our shop.
What are OGC marks?
For participation in tournaments OGC Marks are credited. The better they play and the more
tournaments you participate the more you can get OGC Marks. Tournaments will be conducted
at any place and in every region. If you prefer, you can purchase OGC Marks at our shop.
