Additional information on registration
The most time-consuming task is to choose a tee-off song. It can take many hours so it is wise to do it in advance and not while filling up the registration form.
While choosing the song, remember that only the first 30s is played (as you have 30s to tee-off) and that is what makes it so difficult. Your personal favorite song might not have the best intro on it so you better listen to it carefully before typing it down.
We are using Spotify streaming service to play the songs, so be wise and select a song from their library. If your chosen song is not available in Spotify, we will play a random (or not so random) stupid song instead. You can use Spotify’s free version to browse the service and select the song.
To help us out, put down a Spotify link WITH the song name, thank you.

Here is instructions how to get the link to your song. Thank you Tero Tommola for providing these videos.

A: Player is responsible for his eligibility to play in the division he has registered into. If you are not eligible to play in the division, you cannot play at all.
