I'll try to answer all of the lingering questions. This was not a charity event.
There were 22 couples and each couple paid an entry fee. The head pro received half of the entry fee as he always does.
Gift cards for the Pro Shop were paid out to 1-3rd place. Head Pro gets a percentage of profits, for what's sold in Pro Shop. So the prize money goes right back to the Head Pro.
The Head Pro told my husband that our team was Too competitive and we could have our money back. We gave him back the gift card and got our entry fee money back. We actually made out $10 ahead.
On a side note: one of the members got wind of the extra player incident and is emailing everyone that entered this tournament to get their money back.
Stay tuned for more of The Scandal at the Country Club😏💃
Your head pro has way too much power and authority - not to mention that he's a total ass for that comment about you being too competitive. Is this a private club? Doesn't the club have a board of directors? Isn't there anyone who can curb his graft?
This is more than just the Golden Rule. This is essentially small scale corruption, making decisions based on how he will profit from them, apparently with no concern for anyone but his buddies. It's just plain robbery. If he does this sort of thing often, then it becomes a big deal and someone needs to call him to account.
