    31 Jul 2018

    See what's new and coming soon to WGT!

    NEW

    First Ever Virtual U.S. Amateur

     

    Compete in the first ever Virtual U.S. Amateur, starting Aug 1!

    In continued collaboration with USGA, we're hosting a special new tournament, featuring a qualifying round (similar to the Virtual U.S. Open that you already know and love), followed by an all-new Championship Bracket round for the top leaderboard finishers.

    The Virtual U.S. Amateur Qualifier begins Aug 1, where you can compete to post your best score. The top 32 scores will qualify and be placed into two 16-player brackets for the Championship round. These qualifiers will compete head-to-head until there are two finalists remaining, who will get a trip to Topgolf Atlanta where they will compete in a live head-to-head match for the grand prize and title of the first Virtual U.S. Amateur Champion.

    We're celebrating "Wish Month" this month in support of Make-A-Wish with all new golf balls and ball effects, featuring a blue, starry vapor trail!

    You can help Make-A-Wish grant more wishes by purchasing these limited edition items throughout August. WGT will donate $1 for every sleeve of these virtual golf balls or set of ball effects sold.

    August Virtual Tour Tournament 

    Compete in the Best of Par 5 Challenge tournament this month as part of the 2018 WGT Virtual Tour and post your first round score by 8/26 to qualify for the final round. 

    The top 70 combined scores in each Pro-Champion tier splitting the total purse prize of 100,000 WGT Credits, plus the winning players in each Pro-Champion tier will display a new "reigning champion" icon next to their player name through the following month.

  • Bowl a strike in this week’s CC Event

    26 Jul 2018

    Compete now through Fri, 7/27 with your country club for a chance to win these bowling pin tee markers and flags!


    Play CC Event #78 this week to win these tees and flags as well as other in-game rewards, like Course Builder currency for the top 500 clubs to create 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 #78 runs 7/26-7/27 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 that last for a limited amount of time (usually a few hours). When your club enters the event, you'll be matched with a club at a similar skill level. Start playing! A timer will show how much time 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.

  • JoeMaverick is your 2018 Virtual U.S. Open Champion!

    18 Jul 2018

    Congratulations to this year's Virtual U.S. Open Champion... JoeMaverick from Belgium.

    A final round score of 222 put Champion tier JoeMaverick at the top of the leaderboard, 2 shots ahead of second place BrockBryn (USA) and 3 ahead of third place Naturali (USA).

    This win makes JoeMaverick a back-to-back Virtual U.S. Open Champion after winning last year on Erin Hills. While he's ineligible to claim the grand prize trip due to country restrictions, he's receiving a coveted gold MAX CC Putter to celebrate his achievement!  

    The special 10th anniversary course provided a challenging setting for this year's field, keeping competition strong and forcing players to perform at the highest levels to earn top spots on the leaderboard. Congratulations to all the Virtual U.S. Open tournament leaderboard winners...

    • Virtual U.S. Open Championship Winner: JoeMaverick (Belgium) – Wooden Tee Country Club
    • Virtual U.S. Open Front 9 Challenge Winner: Petewrex (USA) – Carolina Sandhills
    • Virtual U.S. Open Back 9 Challenge Winner: Petewrex (USA) – Carolina Sandhills

    Full Virtual U.S. Open Championship Leaderboard

    JoeMaverick is in good company with Champion tier poldimaier, who was our last back-to-back champion, after winning the 2014 and 2015 tournaments.

    Eligible leaderboard and sweepstakes winners win a $500 USGAshop.com Gift Card prize to spend on official USGA merchandise, plus a lucky sweepstakes winner for the Virtual U.S. Open Qualifier tournament will also win a grand prize trip to next year's U.S. Open.

    We're still confirming some of our sweepstakes winners, but will announce them all soon. Stay tuned...
