Matchplay mode:
You play versus another player, counting each hole by itself.
On hole nr.1 player X needs 2 shots and player Y need 3 shots = player X gets 1 point.
Both players need same shots = 0 points.
Player with most points after 9 holes wins the match and gets 3 points.
Draw will earn 1 point.
Like in soccer there will be a group stage, in which each player will have to play vs all group members. After all matches the players on rank 1, 2, 3 and 4 of each group will enter the final stage.
The final stage will be played as a cup similar to the final rounds of 16 teams in the Soccer World Cup.
Dont be afraid, we will have a big group stage, so that everyone plays at least 6 matches.
112 players, 16 groups, 7 players per group = 6 matches.
Depending on the WFGA-ranking, player 1 and 2 will be placed in the 16 groups, the others will be set via draw to have almost same strength in all groups.
Set up for men: 64 by ranking, 12 wildcards, 52 places for people who registrate and pay first at the homepage.
Set up for women: 16 by ranking, 4 wildcards, 12 places for people who registrate and pay first at the homepage.

Soccerpark Detmold has 27 holes, so everyone will play matches on the front nine, middle and back nine decided via draw.
Group stage will be 9 holes matchplay. From round of only 16 remaining players it will be 18 holes matchplay.
If players having same points after the group stage, the winner of the match against each other will go on. From round of 16 players remaining there will be a play-off over 3 holes to decide the winner.
