  • Get the New Year's Party Started Now!

    28 Dec 2017

    Are you ready to swing into 2018?! We're getting the party started NOW with CC Event #63.

    Compete now through Fri, 12/29 for your chance to win in-game rewards, including these 2018 virtual tee markers and flags.

    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 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 #63 runs 12/28-12/29 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.

  • Staff Picks: What's Your Favorite Apparel Item?

    08 Dec 2017

    Have you added a little style to your WGT Golf Mobile avatar yet?

    This fall, we released new Apparel that lets you change your avatar's look with new shirts, pants, hats, shoes and glove options – plus they each add unique benefits to your game!

    We're loving seeing all the uniqueness on the course, as well as putting our own unique style on our own avatars, so we rounded up a few our favorites here in the office to share with you...

    Who: Engineer
    Favorite Apparel Item: Foxwind Windbreaker Jacket
    Why: Being from the “old world” where you more often than not wear warmer clothes, this jacket recreates this theme the best. On top of that, it features a stylish design that appeals to me most compared to all the other available Apparel items.

    Who: QA Engineer 
    Favorite Apparel Item: Clayton & Mills Hats
    Why: I really like how fancy this hat looks. It has a simple design, but for some reason, it can add a whole new level of class to any user that uses it. Combining the Clayton & Mills headwear with any gloves, shirts and pants that share a similar color scheme or the same colors, just brings out this fancy look to everything. It's the best headwear to me, as it definitely stands out amongst the rest of the headwear items.

    Who: Technical Art Director
    Favorite Apparel Item: We're just about to reveal it to you! (This one is coming SOON, so you'll have to stay tuned...)
    Why: Let's just say it puts me in the holiday spirit...

    Don't forget, you can check out the newest Apparel options on WGT Golf Mobile
