  • Add Some Hardware to the Trophy Case with CC Event #44

    23 Mar 2017

    Join your WGT Country Club and compete in CC Event #44, going on NOW through Fri, 3/24.

    Tired of pulling around the same old golf bag? You're in luck! Today through tomorrow, we're giving away these golden golf bag trophy tee markers and flags to the top finishing country clubs in this week's Event.

    Plus, the top 500 clubs will also receive new Course Builder currency for custom courses.

    Play Now

    CC Event #44 runs 3/23-3/24, with multiple 4-hour Clashes, so be sure to play as many games as you can to earn points 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!

    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.

  • WGT 19th Hole - CEverett12: Honor, Dignity and Respect

    19 Jan 2017

    The "WGT 19th Hole" series focuses on featuring the players, personalities and country clubs that make up the global WGT community.

    CEverett12 - Honor, Dignity and Respect

    This week's WGT 19th Hole player was selected because he consistently sends in nominees for the WGT 19th Hole, so we thought, "Why not feature him?" CEverett12 is a dedicated WGT Country Club owner that prides himself on helping players and running The Bushwackers country club.

    CEverett12 aka Casey stumbled upon WGT on Facebook back in November 2014 and says, "I found WGT and thought I would play a hole or two, boy I was wrong... I was hooked right away. The graphics are fantastic...I never expected to meet anyone or make any friends and boy, I was wrong again. I have met many good folks and made some friends, WGT is not just a great game but also a place you can socialize with good people."

    The players that make up CEverett12's country club could not agree more! Here are a few comments the WGT Community added to his nomination:


    With over 600 consecutive days played, CEverett12 has helped many players and says respect is what drives his generosity.

    "My big thing is respect! Respect the game, yourself and others...The Bushwacker motto is Honor, Dignity & Respect."

    Outside of WGT, CEverett12 enjoys spending time with his father and enjoying the company of his two grown children.

    What advice do you have for players new to WGT?

    "My advice to others on WGT would be this - Send someone a gift. Help someone less fortunate than yourself and do what you can to help others. Also, be kind, say hello and thank you."

    What equipment do you keep in your virtual golf bag?

    Driver: TaylorMade SLDR 9.0 Driver, (L89+) 

    3 Wood: Callaway Big Bertha 3 Wood (L89+)

    Irons: Taylor Made RSI2 (L90+)

    Wedges: Cleveland 588 (L76+) 

    Putter: MAX Control (L80+)

    Thanks so much for being part of the WGT Community and sharing your story!

    WE WANT TO GET TO KNOW YOU! If you'd like us to feature you or someone you know in a future "WGT 19th Hole" profile, please let us know at: players[at]wgt.com.
