  • Time to tap CC Event #68

    15 Mar 2018

    Compete now in CC Event #68 this week for your chance to win these party-worthy Beer Keg tees and flags.

    Play now with your country club through Fri, 3/16 for your chance to win in-game rewards, including these virtual tee markers and flags, while you get ready to celebrate all things green, four-leafed and Irish (aka St. Patrick's Day).

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

    Don't know what Course Builders and custom courses are all about? Learn more here.

    Play Free Now

    PS, did you know: You can earn up to 2X Country Club XP, carry even more CC Passes and generate Passes faster with a WGT Plus or Premier Membership? Upgrade now and the benefits last for an entire year!

    CC Event #68 runs 3/15-3/16 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!

    Here's how it works: Each event is made up of Club Clashes which last for a limited amount of time (usually a few hours). When your club enters the event, you'll be matched to play with a similar skill level club. Start playing! A timer will keep track of how much play is left in that Clash. Club members from both sides can play as many rounds as they'd like during that time using Club Passes and Superpasses to earn points.

  • Celebrating 10 years of the Virtual U.S. Open, and the Inaugural Virtual U.S. Amateur

    27 Feb 2018

    This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Virtual U.S. Open on WGT in collaboration with the United States Golf Association (USGA). Over the past ten years, more than 4.2MM people have competed, playing over 28MM rounds on U.S. Open Championship courses!

    In celebration of this milestone, we've created a new course made up of the best holes from past U.S. Open Championships.

    Starting in March, you'll be able to compete in the 2018 Virtual U.S. Open on some of the country's most prestigious courses including Bethpage Black, Pebble Beach Golf Links, Congressional Country Club, The Olympic Club, Merion, Pinehurst No. 2, Chambers Bay, Oakmont Country Club and Erin Hills.

    This May-June, play in the Virtual U.S. Open Qualifier tournament for the chance to win a trip to Pebble Beach to experience the 2019 U.S. Open in person! 

    As part of our effort to grow and celebrate the game of golf we all love, the USGA and WGT are excited to announce the first-ever Virtual U.S. Amateur this year. This new virtual Championship will be played on the same course that the U.S. Amateur will be played this August, Pebble Beach, followed by Pinehurst Resort and Country Club in 2019.

    In 2020, the U.S. Amateur will be hosted at Bandon Dunes and as a result we'll be busy working on the full 18 holes of the iconic Bandon Dunes Golf Course. 

    We'll be sharing more details on the 2018 Virtual U.S. Open tournament and the new Virtual U.S. Amateur as we have them, so stay tuned!
