  • Throw a Pizza Party on the Golf Course

    24 Aug 2017

    We're popping boxes... Pizza boxes, that is!

    Round up your friends (and by this, we mean country club) and get to playing in CC Event #54.

    Compete now through Fri, 8/25 for your chance to win in-game rewards, including these fresh and ready-to-win virtual Pizza 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

    CC Event #54 runs 8/24-8/25 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.
