  • Cheers to this week's CC Event

    20 Sep 2018

    Compete now through Fri, 9/21 with your country club for your chance to win these cheers-worthy champagne glass tee markers and flags.

    Stay classy this week to win these tees and flags for your club, plus other in-game rewards like Course Builder currency for the top 500 clubs to create custom courses.

    Don't know what Course Builders and custom courses are all about? Learn more here.

    Play Now

    PS, did you know: You can earn up to 2X Country Club XP, carry even more CC Passes and generate Passes faster with a WGT Plus or Premier Membership? Upgrade now and the benefits last for an entire year!

    CC Event #82 runs 9/20-9/21 with multiple 4-hour Clashes, so be sure to play as many games as you can for your club and keep your eyes on the leaderboard.

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

    Here's how it works: Each event is made up of Club Clashes which last for a limited amount of time (usually a few hours). When your club enters the event, you'll be matched to play with a similar skill level club. Start playing! A timer will keep track of how much play is left in that Clash. Club members from both sides can play as many rounds as they'd like during that time using Club Passes and Superpasses to earn points.

    This final Bracket round kicks off on Aug 29, with players competing each day through Sep 1. Only winners move on to the next match-up until only two finalists are left.

    The top two players from eligible countries will win a trip to Topgolf Atlanta to compete in a live, head-to-head championship (the first ever!) to compete for WGT fame and $500 gift cards to both USGAshop.com and Topgolf.

    We'll notify you when it's time to renew, but wanted to give you a heads up on the special offer so you don't miss out!
