  • Umbrellas are for Show in CC Event #46

    20 Apr 2017

    Compete in CC Event #46, going on now through Fri, 4/21.

    "April Showers" are real, but it's always sunny on WGT so we're celebrating that fact with these shiny, unused umbrella tee markers and flags in this week's Country Club Event.

    Today and tomorrow, play with your WGT Country Club and compete against other clubs for fun and in-game rewards, including these umbrellas!

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

    CC Event #46 runs 4/20-4/21, 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!

    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.
