  • The end of winter in July

    11 Jul 2019

    Compete now in CC Event #103 for a chance to win these snowflake tee markers and flags, marking the end of the "Christmas in July" event.

    That special event is regularly hosted by WGT community members, as a way to spread good cheer and help out other players.

    Play now through Fri, 7/12 for a chance to win these for your club, plus the top 500 clubs will also receive Course Builder currency for 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 #103 runs 7/11-7/12 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. The flash sale on CC Passes runs through the end of the Event, so don't miss out.

    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.

  • WGT Community: Christmas in July Giveaway is Back!

    02 Jul 2019

    The WGT community-run "Christmas in July" event is back on the WGT Forum!

    This event was started years ago by members of this community and it continues today, led by opyeuclid, designed to help each other out.

    This (and the "12 Days of Christmas" event in December) is made possible by the WGT community, FOR the WGT community -- a way to share the love, give away virtual equipment and improve the game for deserving players. Here's a description from a "Santa..."

    "The '12 days of Christmas' and 'Christmas in July' events were started by MrCaddie as a way for some of us (Santas) to give back to the community. For the reason to help some of the new/old players that need a club or putter to make the game better for them. It's about the fun and friendships that this game brings to us."

    It's going on now and you can check out the guidelines/how it works HERE.

    Be sure to check it out on the forum...you could be the lucky recipient of some awesome virtual gear!

    It's Christmas in July!

    Thanks to the organizers and all the Santas for their generosity and efforts to help other players improve their game.
