  • CC Event #7 This Weekend

    29 Aug 2015

    WGT Country Club members, play CC Event #7 going on NOW thru Sun, 8/30.

    CC Events are back with new improvements for country clubs to enjoy.

    Compete against other country clubs for in-game rewards, new golf ball tee markers and flags, and (most importantly?) club pride.

    We've made some improvements based on player feedback from earlier Events...

    Removed Speed-Up Boosts - Based on player feedback, we've removed Speed-Up Boosts as prizes

    More Passes - Special this weekend, CC Passes will automatically regenerate every 4 hours so you can play more games for your club with free passes

    More Super Passes - In addition to the Superpasses awarded to your club at the start of an Event, your club will receive 2 additional Superpasses at the start of each Clash you participate in

    Visit Your Country Club Page

    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 is entered in an Event and you start a Clash, 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 then play as many rounds as they want during that time, using Club Passes and Superpasses to earn points.

  • dansamcam's PGA Championship Trip: Checking Off the Bucket List

    27 Aug 2015

    As the grand prize winner of the 2014 Virtual PGA Championship, Tour Legend dansamcam received a trip for him and a guest to attend the 2015 PGA Championship this summer at Whistling Straits as special guests of the PGA.

    He was kind enough to share his experience with us, including some awesome photos. And, as you'll read, he definitely made the most of the trip, crossing a few big things off the bucket list!

     

    My trip to this year's PGA Championship turned out to be much more than just a trip to the PGA Championship. It was one of my most memorable trips ever.

    I was able to check off several items from my bucket list, such as attending one of golf's Majors, seeing Tiger Woods play in person and visiting Lambeau Field, football's mecca and home of the Green Bay Packers.

    There were some extra bonuses too, being able to meet one of my Aphrodite CC friends from WGT in person (Cate55 was the random draw winner and is a very wonderful person to meet in real life too).

    Watching the Packers practice live, visiting the little town of Green Lake where my mother's family is from and where she was born, and of course staying in a wonderful little fishing town called Port Washington. The local cuisine there was excellent and the people are very friendly. I'd like to give a special shout out to Lori from the Rusty Anchor in Port Washington who makes an awesome margarita and made my cousin and I feel right at home.

    I've never been much of a writer, so I'll let my pictures do the rest of the talking, enjoy…

     

    Thank you WGT for making this great trip possible!!

    I'm looking forward to winning another one real soon! jk ;-)

    Your number one fan, 
    Dansamcam

  • Team Yancy Goes to Chambers Bay

    24 Jul 2015

    The infamous WGT player YancyCan stopped by Chambers Bay recently to experience the action of this year's U.S. Open Championship.

    He was kind enough to share some words and photos with the WGT community, enjoy!

    Being residents (of an undisclosed location) within the Pacific Northwest, Yancy & Medford Mel were eager to see the course we had been playing on wgt.com. The 2015 U.S. Open was arguably the biggest sporting event ever held in this area of the United States. Fan enthusiasm was off the charts as people packed this unique course day after day, showing that golf is as popular here as anywhere in the states.

    When you enter the course gates, you find yourself looking down on what looks like some sort of outdoor sporting complex. Then the trains running by the Pacific Ocean, the remains of the sand mining operation, and the one lone tree helped to create a surreal experience.

    After it took 20 minutes to have Yancy's bag of paranormal explorer tools to clear security (the only thing confiscated was a spray can of Playboy VIP body spray), Team Yancy spent quite awhile just looking down at the spectacular view from above with fellow WGTer Fuzzygazz who was on a whirlwind tour of the Pacific Northwest.

    We finally decided on our walking route, and began our descent into the bay. Once we were down in the golf action, our plan was tossed aside and we simply tried to see as much of the course and golfers as possible. The only remaining goal being to visit the large concrete remnants of what was once a sand mining operation (allegedly).

    As you may have seen from TV coverage, Chambers Bay plays as tough as it does "virtually" on wgt.com. For us the chance to walk and watch PGA touring pros play a course in person that we had played online many, many times was an experience unlike any other.

    While we attended to see the course and the pros, we also had paranormal possibilities to explore at Chambers Bay. All the elements of Alien Colonization of Earth were there. There were trains running along an ocean & huge monolithic cement structures that most call "sand sifters" (aka time-portals) among other things. At this time we are not ready to discuss our paranormal conclusions, however we will reveal these things one by one in video format via our YouTube channel. Some of which are already available to view & by subscribing you can follow the research as its shared at: www.youtube.com/user/yancycan

    Sincerely, I am Yancy
    @TeamYancy
