  • Listen Closely, Piano Tees and Flags are Here 🎹

    14 Nov 2019

    Find your rhythm in CC Event #112, featuring these piano tee markers and flags.

    Play now through 11/15 to win these, 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 #112 runs 11/14-11/15 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 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.

Most of the remaining games will be streamed on the same channel as well. You can find links, dates and time in the forum thread under the ‘livestreams’ section of the spreadsheet or on the Twitch channel.

    Win great prizes: Join the live streams for a chance to win great prizes from the organizers. There will be opportunities to bet on the outcome of matches, number of birdies made, total number of putts as well as other bets. Winners will receive a total sum of 40,000 WGT Credits.
