  • CC of the Week - Aussie Aussie Aussie

    12 Nov 2014

    This week's Country Club of the Week is... Aussie Aussie Aussie, a group of "mates" led by club owner SHRUDE.

    The Aussie Aussie Aussie country club has 210 members, including 4 officers,  and is currently ranked #28 on the Weekly Leaderboard. 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.

    Owner SHRUDE, a Level 97 Tour Legend, describes the club for us:

    "Aussie Aussie Aussie! prides itself on 'mateship' and a relaxed, happy culture.

    Most of our members have been with us for more than 2 years, the loyalty in the club is one I have found personally fulfilling. 

    Aussie Aussie Aussie! members enjoy the ability to create their own tourneys for fun and for serious competition. We have a very active forum with a good percentage of club participation within. 

    New members are encouraged to friend with other members and the club has a culture of helping and nurturing as well as providing regular challenges in which all tiers can win prizes from the Pro Shop.

    Our club is glad to have reached this 'award,' so many other clubs in WGT deserve kudos and I thank all the other CC owners over time who have been open and friendly in sharing Club ideas for the mutual challenges and excitement we all receive from being a 'member' of a great club!"

    Aussie Aussie Aussie!

  • Play CC Event #2 Now

    06 Nov 2014

    Play CC Event #2 today and tomorrow to compete against other country clubs.

    WGT Country Clubs can now play against each other for rankings and new in-game rewards, including new custom tee markers and flagsticks that you can use in country club tournaments, and the much talked about MAX CC Rewards Gold Putter.

    CC Event #2 runs from Thu 12 PM PST to Fri 2 PM PST and is made up of multiple 4-hour Club Clashes where you're matched up with another country club.

    When a CC Event starts, anyone in your country club can enter your club. 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 Clash.

    Each Club Clash will be played on nine-holes at either St Andrews, Merion, Congressional or Oakmont. Post as many good rounds as you can for your country club in each Club Clash, using either a Club Pass or a new 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 club wins the new MAX CC Putter to award to a lucky club member, and the Top 25 clubs each win new Gnome Tee Markers and Flagsticks. Gnomes!
