LETTER FROM FOUNDERS
It really is an amazing story. A new golf and gambling event with a $10,000 buy-in played for cash prizes, that no one had ever seen or played before. We created 60 inaugural playing positions and sold them out in three weeks. What happened from that point was truly remarkable.
With our partners at The MGM Mirage and Full Tilt Poker, we staged a peer-to-peer golfers and gamblers event. These professionally organized and run amateur golf events which aired on network television, yielded unbelievable moments on the golf course as only golf and gambling matches can. We were innovative. No strokes. No handicaps. No bullshit. Players were allowed to bring a financial advisor/caddie on course with them. We trained an incredible group of individuals who ran each group – our ‘croupiers’. We threw an opening night party at the then Siegfried and Roy habitat. Our friends at the Mirage went above and beyond. But what really made the event special were the players, their families, and friends. The winners went home happy with big checks. The inaugural event winner took home $250,000. We all shared one thing in common … we love the game of golf, and we love to gamble on it.
Like any new venture we went through growing pains and were dealt a fatal blow on Black Friday when our title sponsor, Full Tilt Poker was forced out of the US marketplace. Sports betting was not yet legal and left us with few options and a decision was made to suspend the events.
Sports betting, now legalized, has shown just how significant the appetite for gambling on golf is – it’s big. But the marketplace has also introduced virtual golf play. Our company is the only company to have achieved copyright status on Rules of a Game and Method of Play for a golf game with a betting component for both live and virtual events. We intend to utilize the copyrights to re-introduce High Stakes Golf, both live and virtual with an expanded number of play formats. So while we will continue to run buy-in events, we will also create specialty events. We will continue to run these as amateur events and will continually expand the breadth of players, both men and women, US and international. We will initiate our virtual play utilizing our format in peer-to-peer simulator games.
Since the game of golf’s inception, players have been gambling amongst each other on matches. Our events create an organized, professional environment to play a competitive hit-and-bet format on a level playing field. It is our intent to bring high profile interesting men and women to compete for cash prizes in our high stakes golf matches.
