  • We're thankful for YOU!

    16 Nov 2017

    We're giving thanks to you this week for being an important part of the WGT community! You can show that off with these seasonal Pumpkin Basket tees and flags that are up for grabs in CC Event #60.

    Compete now through Fri, 11/17 for your chance to win in-game rewards, including these virtual tee markers and flags.

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

    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 #60 runs 11/16-11/17 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.
