  • Roll the dice in CC Event #26

    25 Jun 2016

    CC Event #26 kicks off today and we'd "bet" your club would love your help!

    Play in this week's CC Event today and tomorrow, to compete against other country clubs for these new dice tee markers and flags – perfect to celebrate the newest Topgolf venue opening on the Las Vegas strip!

    Play Free 

    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 - Fraenkel: The Avatar-Changing Italian

    09 Jun 2016

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

    Fraenkel - The Avatar-Changing Italian


    Fraenkel has been playing WGT since September 2011 and says he still remembers the day he clicked on the WGT ad to get him here, "After almost 5 years I am still here, excited as if it's the first day." You may have played against the WGT veteran but it's unlikely you would recognize him by his avatar, he changes it almost once a week (his favorite is "Crimson Pride!")

    Known by David outside of WGT, he lives in Milan, Italy, happily married and working for a telecommunications company. He says he's lucky enough to play WGT for almost 2 hours a day, where he manages the Crowned Masters Golf Resort. Fraenkel enjoys golf in all forms, including real world golf at Italian courses in Tuscany, watching golf on TV and playing WGT. He says he always thought playing golf would be an expensive sport choice, but thanks to WGT he was able to turn it into a "pure passion."

    What's your favorite virtual course on WGT?

    "Pebble Beach is the best course I've played on WGT, but my favorite one can be only Bethpage Black."

    Do you have any WGT stats you're particularly proud of?

    "I am a proud owner of WGT Country Club, Crowned Masters Golf Resort and with this, I would like to thank all my directors and members." He adds that he's also proud of being featured in the WGT 19th Hole, saying it's "a real milestone."

    What equipment is currently in your virtual golf bag?

    When it comes to tips for new players Fraenkel says he's "not a mentor and [he's] not even one of the best WGT players so [he has] no special tips to share," but he assures new players, that good karma will pay off with "consistency and perseverance in the game, mixed with respect for the WGT rules, the people in the Community and the Staff." Overall, his message is to first and foremost you should just enjoy the game.

    Thanks for sharing and keep up the awesome work in your WGT Country Club!

    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.
