  • Ferocious T. Rex Says, "Play CC Event #27"

    08 Jul 2016

    We're going old (and we mean OLD) school this week in CC Event #27, featuring these T. rex tee markers and flags.

    Compete against other WGT Country Clubs today and tomorrow for club status and in-game rewards, including these ferocious dinosaurs!

    Play Free

    CC Events allow WGT Country Clubs to compete against each other for golf glory and special in-game rewards. The club that earns the most total points from their Clashes wins.

    Each Event is made up of Club Clashes that last for a limited amount of time (usually a few hours). When your club enters the event, you'll get matched with another club close to your skill level, and a timer will show how much time is left in that Clash. Club members from both clubs can play as many rounds as they want during that time, using Club Passes and Superpasses to earn points.
