Introducing the College Golf Series
Updated: Jul 5
You've played plenty of Tournaments on your own. You've joined Country Clubs so you can take on the Ultimate Golf world with your buddies. Now a whole new team competition is here that's unlike anything you've ever played before. Welcome to the College Golf Series!
For a quick overview of this new event, check out this video from Duff & Hyp Andrew. For more in-depth details, keep scrolling and read below!
The passion. The pageantry. The beer. Nothing beats college sports, where players compete for both the glory of their alma mater AND a chance to play at the next level. In the College Golf Series, you too get to compete for the pride of a team championship AND all the individual honors that come with being the best of the best.
Here's how it's going to work:
On Wednesday, July 5, you'll be able to join one of eight teams: Michigan, Ohio State, Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, Louisiana State, Georgia, and Florida.
Similar to the Scrambles & Pick 'Ems you've played before, you'll be able to join the team of your choice using a promo code. Choose your team wisely—there's no transfer portal in the College Golf Series, so the team you choose on Wednesday is the team you're locked into for the entire competition! All 8 promo codes will be announced on Wednesday, July 5 at 1 PM ET.
Once you choose your team and enter their corresponding promo code, a special Tournament will be unlocked where you will compete against other players who chose the same team. In that Tournament, you'll compete for individual rewards amongst your own teammates, with the top players in each division bringing in the top prizes.
At the same time, the other teams will be playing their own Tournaments, too.
In each of the tournament's 3 rounds, your team will be matched against one opposing team; only one team from each matchup will advance to the next round. After Round 1, the aggregate score of your Top 10 scorers in each division—Rookie, Veteran, Pro, and Tour Pro—will be matched up against the aggregate top scores from the opposing team. The team with the better aggregate score will advance to the next round of the single-elimination College Golf Series bracket.
This means that, while Golf Bags are awarded for individual performance within your own team, advancement (and a chance to win even more rewards, including rare and exclusive prizes for the champion team) is based on your whole squad's performance.
The same structure and balance of individual & team competition will apply in the semi-final round on Thursday July 6, and the final round on Friday, July 7. The last team standing will be crowned the College Golf Series champions after the Finals on Friday!
Although Golf Bags will be based on your individual performance, there will be very special rewards in store for everyone on the final winning team, so don't overlook the value of joining a team where the competition is fierce!
