  • The golf balls are stacked and ready for CC Event #31

    22 Sep 2016

    Join your WGT Country Club and compete in CC Event #31, going on NOW through Fri, 9/23.

    Compete against other clubs for club status and in-game rewards, including these golf ball pyramid tee markers and flags!

    Go to Country Club Page 

    CC Event #31 runs 9/22-9/23, with multiple 4-hour Clashes, so be sure to play as many games as you can to earn points for your club and keep your eyes on the leaderboard.

    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.

  • New Shot Clock Tournaments

    14 Sep 2016

    The newest way to play tournaments on WGT is in shot clock Tournaments!

    Now, country clubs can create tournaments with shot clock timers ranging from 10 seconds (speed rounds!) to 45 seconds, for a new challenge.

    How they work:

    • Players are assessed a 1-stroke penalty each time the shot clock runs out
    • If a player's shot clock runs out 3 consecutive times, their game will end

    To set up a shot clock tournament, a club member with permissions can just go to the Club Tournaments tab and select "Create Tournament" to choose how they want to set it up, including the ability to set the shot clock timer for 10-45 seconds.

    WGT will also be running tournaments with variable shot clock timers, so be sure to give them a try!

    Go To County Club
