  • CC of the Week - The Peoples Club

    20 Aug 2014

    After the first week of playing all the new WGT Country Club features, we've seen many clubs (including thousands of WGT players) earning XP and leveling-up on the leaderboard.

    This week, The Peoples Club is currently at the top of the Country Club Weekly Leaderboard, having earned more than 300,000 XP.

    They are the first to reach Club Level 6, meaning they've unlocked the club benefit that earns +5% Club XP when members play using a Pass -- and this is just the latest benefit they've unlocked. At Club Level 2 all of their members got a free unlimited Putter Pal, and at Club Level 4 they all got a free unlimited Shot Pal, plus other XP bonuses and more. Visit the "Benefits" tab in the Country Club menu to see what your club will earn by leveling up.

    There are a number of clubs at Level 5 who are working their way up, including the Senior Citizens, Eagle Club Golf Association, and those old duffers again!

    The Peoples Club owner, courteneyfish, is clearly impressed with both the club members and their game play this week, as well as the new Country Club improvements...

    "My members are a great bunch but they even surprised me by getting us to the top of the tree after the first week by such a large margin. It's a great time to be playing WGT what with more country club improvements just around the corner and new courses on the horizon."

    Keep up all the great work everyone! Your club and fellow club members appreciate every little bit that you contribute.

  • Go Long and Go Orange

    14 Aug 2014

    Add more distance and style to your drives on WGT with the new Cobra BiO CELL virtual driver.

    The Cobra BiO CELL is great for new WGT players, offering more speed and distance, with less spin off the tee, and a slower WGT swing meter to help you hit straighter and longer. Plus, the bright orange color is sure to help you stand out. #flatbills

    The Cobra BiO CELL virtual driver unlocks at Level 5 in the WGT Pro Shop.

  • Go Longer with MAX Distance

    13 Aug 2014

    Go longer on all your shots with the newest virtual golf balls from MAX on WGT.

    The new MAX Distance golf balls feature the maximum amount of distance, to help you hit farther and shorten your approach shots.

    You'll give up some control with these, but you'll crush your drives!

  • CC of the Week - UK Golfers Elite

    12 Aug 2014

    It's only the first day of all the new Country Club features on WGT, but thousands of WGT players are helping  level-up their clubs, and there are over thirty clubs already at Club Level 3.

    Sitting at the top of the Country Club Weekly Leaderboard in the game is UK Golfers Elite, who have already earned over 43,000 XP this week, wow!

    At Club Level 2, all of their members got free unlimited Putter Pal, and when they reach Level 4 pretty soon, they'll all get free unlimited Shot Pal. Plus XP Bonuses, more tournaments and more. See more about new Country Clubs here.

    What's really impressive is that UK Golfers Elite only has 88 members, but they're clearly very active, and range from a Level 30 Pro alfonzo1982 to a Level 119 Legend gersman1972...and from outside the UK too. It sounds like a fun group, and their Country Club page says it best...

    "UKGE is a busy, lively, social CC, with a variety of weekly comps, leagues, one-on-one tourneys, inter CC comps, matchplay comps, team comps, etc. etc. The competition between members is fierce, but always friendly. Members also have access to a private Facebook group - the 19th Hole."

    ...but watch out UKGE, both Senior Citizens and The old duffers retreat are coming up fast...well, as fast as seniors and old duffers can :)

  • WGT Country Clubs Just Got Better

    12 Aug 2014

    Country Clubs in WGT just got better, as members can now help level-up their Country Club, unlocking new benefits for all other Country Club members.

    For example, at Country Club Level 2, all Country Club members get free unlimited Putter Pal, and at Level 4 all members get free unlimited Shot Pal. Additionally, members can now earn more personal XP, run more tournaments and add more members as their clubs level-up, all for free.

    To help level-up your Country Club, you'll use a new Country Club Pass, which you receive free daily, and the next round you play will earn XP (Experience Points) for both you AND your club. Players can also purchase Country Club Passes if they want to help level-up their club even faster.

    See New Country Clubs on Main Menu of Game

    There's a lot more coming for WGT Country Club members soon. If you're not in a Country Club yet, it's easy to join one or create one, and start running your own private tournaments and building a network of WGT friends.
