  • Play CC Event #8 This Weekend

    26 Sep 2015

    WGT Country Club members, play CC Event #8 going on NOW thru Sun, 9/27.

    It's football season...on WGT? 

    Compete against other country clubs for in-game rewards, club pride and NEW football tee markers and flags.

    We've made some improvements based on player feedback from earlier Events...

    Removed Speed-Up Boosts - Based on feedback, we've removed Speed-Up Boosts as prizes

    More Passes - Special this weekend, CC Passes will automatically regenerate every 4 hours so you can play more games for your club with free passes

    More Super Passes - In addition to the Superpasses awarded to your club at the start of an Event, your club will receive 2 additional Superpasses at the start of each Clash you participate in

    Visit Your Country Club Page

    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.
