Each tournament purse will also include in-game currency, GamesCampus cash, and other in-game items as prizes.
Like real life golf tournaments, each of the four tournaments will run weekly and last four days (Thursday through Sunday). The first in the series will commence on July 03, 2008 and run through July 06, 2008.
The subsequent tournaments will be scheduled as follows: Tournament 2: July 10, 2008 through July 13, 2008; Tournament 3: July 17, 2008 through July 20, 2008 and Tournament 4: July 17, 2008 through July 20, 2008.
