  • CC of the Week - BRIDGESTONE Golf

    17 Dec 2014

    This week's Country Club of the Week is... BRIDGESTONE Golf, which clearly has some proud club members!

    The BRIDGESTONE Golf country club has 90 members, including 4 officers, with more than 4.5 million Experience Points (XP) earned. They are approaching Club Level 9, but currently at Club Level 8, they have unlocked a number of country club benefits, including a free Putter Pal and Shot Pal for all of their members and earning +3% XP per round. Keep playing using CC Passes to level up your club to unlock these benefits too.

    Here's what Club Director stevereilly, a Level 101 Tour Legend, had to say...

    "Bridgestone CC is proud to follow in the footsteps of several other  great CCs in being named 'CC of the Week.' This award is kind of special, because until they read this, our owner Moosetaya and the rest of the club have no idea they are up for the award.

    Moosetaya, took over the CC, from the previous owner and the CC has grown steadily under his leadership. Many of the members have risen from the lower tiers to Tour Legend, because of the help and guidance given within the CC.

    Finally, Bridgestone would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and we look forward to seeing many old friends, plus some new ones in the new year."

    The current Weekly Leaderboard below shows The old duffers retreat in the top spot, followed by The Peoples Club, followed by Sherbrooke Country Club, IBIS GC, The Georgian and the The Madrid Golf Club.

    Plus, the top 25 finishing clubs have been awarded the new Snowman tee markers and flags, that they can use in their own country club tournaments for a winter-y touch anytime of the year.

    Congrats to No Quitters Here Please, the winning club of the event that gets to award one lucky club member with a gold MAX CC Putter.

  • CC Event #4 This Weekend

    12 Dec 2014

    Play CC Event #4 this weekend to compete against other country clubs for new rewards, including new winter-y Snowman Tee Markers and Flags for your country club tournaments, and the gold MAX CC Rewards gold putter.

    CC Event #4 runs for 48 hours all day Sat 12/13 and Sun 12/14 with multiple 4-hour Clashes, so be sure to play as many games as you can for your club this weekend, and keep your eyes on the Leaderboard.

    When a CC Event starts, anyone in your country club can enter your country club in the event. Once your club is entered, you'll get matched up with another club, similar to your club's skill level, which starts the Club Clash and a timer will show how much time is left in each 4-hour clash.

    Each Club Clash is played on nine-holes at either Bandon Dunes (NEW!), Bethpage, Congressional or Merion. Post as many good rounds as you can for your country club in each Club Clash, using either a Club Pass or a Superpass to multiply your points.

    The winning clubs in each Club Clash receive additional bonus points, and at the end of the CC Event, the top 1,000 clubs all win prizes like Speed Boosts, the top 25 clubs win new Snowman Tee Markers and Flagsticks (keep an eye out for a sneak preview as you play in the event!) and the first place club wins the new MAX CC Rewards Putter for a lucky club member.
