  • CC Event #4 This Weekend

    12 Dec 2014

    Play CC Event #4 this weekend to compete against other country clubs for new rewards, including new winter-y Snowman Tee Markers and Flags for your country club tournaments, and the gold MAX CC Rewards gold putter.

    CC Event #4 runs for 48 hours all day Sat 12/13 and Sun 12/14 with multiple 4-hour Clashes, so be sure to play as many games as you can for your club this weekend, and keep your eyes on the Leaderboard.

    When a CC Event starts, anyone in your country club can enter your country club in the event. Once your club is entered, you'll get matched up with another club, similar to your club's skill level, which starts the Club Clash and a timer will show how much time is left in each 4-hour clash.

    Each Club Clash is played on nine-holes at either Bandon Dunes (NEW!), Bethpage, Congressional or Merion. Post as many good rounds as you can for your country club in each Club Clash, using either a Club Pass or a Superpass to multiply your points.

    The winning clubs in each Club Clash receive additional bonus points, and at the end of the CC Event, the top 1,000 clubs all win prizes like Speed Boosts, the top 25 clubs win new Snowman Tee Markers and Flagsticks (keep an eye out for a sneak preview as you play in the event!) and the first place club wins the new MAX CC Rewards Putter for a lucky club member.

  • WGT Virtual Tour Top 4 Tour Legend Winners

    09 Dec 2014

    Congratulations to the top four Tour Legends in the 2014 WGT Virtual Tour Championship... 

    1. fmagnets - shot 53 and 57 for a combined final score of 110
    2. WaLk0fLiFe - shot a 54 and 56 for a final 110
    3. javiertorg - shot a 54 and 57 for a combined 111
    4. BigNick092785 - shot a 55 and 57 for final 112

    It was a close second round, but in the end these four Tour Legends are moving on to Part 2 of the Virtual Tour Championship competing for another 500,000 WGT Credit purse.

    The unique part of this final round tournament is that each player will need to stream their rounds on Twitch for other WGT players to watch live. You'll be able to watch these streams on the WGT Twitch channel (twitch.tv/wgtgolf) when the players choose to play, between 12/11-12/14.

    Stay tuned and we'll let you know when you can watch!

     

    Congratulations to all of the 420 top players that qualified and played in the Virtual Tour Championship, who will split the record 500,000 credit purse based on their final combined scores.

    Championship Leaderboards

  • UPDATE: Virtual Tour Championship Round 1 ends today

    05 Dec 2014

    Today is the last chance for the 420 top WGT players to post their best score in Round 1 of the WGT Virtual Championship, which has a record prize purse of 1 million WGT Credits, a $10,000 value.

    Round 1 (12/2-12/5) is unlimited play on Kiawah, and here's where the leaders stand...

    • Tour Legend - tinybo leads at 52, 6 players are tied at 53, and 13 players are tied at 54
    • Legend - MyCorona leads at 54, arielgongon at 55, and 8 players are tied at 56
    • Tour Master - shagadelic and onthegrind lead at 56, 3 players are tied at 57, and 3 players are tied at 58
    • Master - borondon, SwenCaserio, DelaPoutine and geeberwocky all tied at 58, and 5 players are tied at 59
    • Tour Pro - jmbeanball and mulligan46 tied at 55, 3 players tied at 58
    • Pro - BigBlockVettes leads at 57, 2 players are tied at 61

    ...so it's a very close competition across all tiers.

    In order to be eligible for the Championship prizes, players must post Round 1 by the end of today Fri 12/5, so they can play Round 2 (12/6-12/8), which is a more challenging single-play round in tougher conditions on Pinehurst No. 2. The top 70 players in each tier will split the 500,000 credit purse based on their combined scores from Round 1 and Round 2.

    Then, the Top 4 Tour Legends will compete in a final round, on a brand new WGT course, from 12/11 to 12/14, for another 500,000 credit purse. Those 4 Tour Legends will also need to stream their final rounds on Twitch for other WGT players to watch live.

  • CC of the Week - Lobsters Lair

    03 Dec 2014

    This week's Country Club of the Week is... Lobsters Lair, who just celebrated its fourth birthday last week!

    The Lobsters Lair country club has 33 members, including 3 officers, with more than 1,406,600 Experience Points (XP) earned. They are quickly approaching Club Level 7, but currently at Club Level 6, they have unlocked a number of country club benefits, including a free Putter Pal and Shot Pal for all of their members and earning +5% Club XP per round. Keep playing using CC Passes to level up your club to unlock these benefits too.

    Club Director Lobsterboy, a Level 99 Legend, describes the birthday club...

    "What a great honor to be chosen as the CC of the week and the timing couldn't be better as the LLCC just celebrated her 4th birthday on the 24th of November!

    The vision of the Lobsters Lair Country Club is that of an active, tight knit 'family' atmosphere. Above all else, the name of the game is to have fun and enjoy yourself here. We strive to be the most active, most fun, and very best CC in all of WGT! Not recorded in stats or numbers, but rather by each and every member knowing that there is no other place they'd rather be!

    I'd like to thank all members past and present for making the LLCC the club she is today and I look forward to the next 4 years!

    Cheers!"

    Happy birthday, Lobsters! From everyone at WGT. 

    The current Weekly Leaderboard below shows The Peoples Club at #1, followed by Sherbrooke Country Club, The old duffers retreat, The Madrid Golf Club and The Georgian.
