  • How did the skeleton know he'd win CC Event #33?

    20 Oct 2016

    A: He could feel it in his bones!

    Round up your WGT Country Club and play in CC Event #33, going on NOW through Fri 10/21.

    And since it's Halloween season, compete against other clubs in this week's CC Event for club pride and in-game rewards, like these spooky skull tee markers and flags – that you can use in your own country club tournaments this Halloween!

    Play...if you DARE!

    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 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.
