  • New Equipment from TaylorMade and More Chambers Bay

    01 Apr 2015

    See what's new today on WGT, including some new virtual golf equipment and more of the new Chambers Bay course for you to explore...

     

    New TaylorMade R15 Driver and 3 Wood

    Get the newest virtual clubs on WGT, the new R15 driver and 3 wood.

    Get higher launch off the tee with the new R15 virtual driver, featuring the latest driver technology from TaylorMade, unlocking at Level 40 and Level 90.

    The top performing R15 virtual 3 wood gives you more precision, forgiveness and a slower swing meter, unlocking at Level 41 and Level 84.

     

    New Closest-to-the-Hole Course

    We’re continuing to roll out the newest WGT course, Chambers Bay, as part of the 2015 Virtual U.S. Open.

    Get your first look at the back 9 holes of the 2015 U.S. Open Championship host course in the Back 9 closest-to-the-hole challenge (full course coming to WGT in May).

     

    New Focus Boost

    Slow down your WGT Swing Meter for those big shots you really need to make, with new Focus Boosts you can buy in-game.

    Look for the new lightning bolt option above the swing meter, available in practice games only.

     

    Disable Swing Caddy

    Based on player feedback, you now have the option to turn off the WGT Swing Caddy in your Settings. This is great for top players, that prefer to select their clubs manually, based on each shot.

  • CC Event #6 This Weekend

    14 Mar 2015

    WGT Country Club members, play CC Event #6 going on NOW thru Sun, 3/15.

    Compete against other country clubs this weekend for in-game rewards, new shamrock tee markers and flags, and club pride.

    Like we announced with the last CC Event, we've made some improvements based on player feedback from earlier Events...

    More Passes - Special this weekend, CC Passes will automatically regenerate every 4 hours so you can play more games for your club with free passes

    More Super Passes - In addition to the Superpasses awarded to your club at the start of an Event, your club will receive 2 additional Superpasses at the start of each Clash you participate in

    Scoring - Points are earned per hole, as follows:

    • Double Eagle (3 strokes under par): +50 points
    • Eagle (2 strokes under par): +25 points
    • Birdie (1 stroke under par): +12 points
    • Par (Even par): +5 points
    • Bogey (1 stroke over par): +2 point
    • Double Bogey or worse (2+ strokes over par): +1 point

    Participation Bonus - To reward clubs for playing, there is a new point bonus system based on the percentage of club members that play in the Clash, as follows:

    • 25% of club members: +40 points
    • 50% of club members: +100 points
    • 75% of club members: +175 points
    • 100% of club members: +300 points

    Visit Your Country Club Page

    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 is entered in an Event and you start a Clash, 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 then play as many rounds as they want during that time, using Club Passes and Superpasses to earn points.
