      For WGTers new to the Club scene .

      WGT Country Clubs . Are the backbone of the survival of WGT Virtual Online Golf . And have been . Since the beginning .

      There are many types of CC's . As many agendas as there are CC's .

      To enhance ones personal WGT adventure by belonging to the right CC for you .

      Will surround one with the most information available . Via the owner , the directors , the experienced and knowledgeable vast CC members . The tournaments , the formats . How to hone your skills . How to tier up . How to upgrade ones equipment . How to lower ones average .

    CC Tournaments

    WGT Tournaments

    Single player unlimited play Tournaments

    Multiplayer Tournaments

    CLASHes

    Showdowns

      All in an awesome team environment .

      And so much more . Easily accessible in a good CC .

      It is very important . When searching for a CC . To first check the owners of the CC's profile .

      The CC must have a current active owner .

      Check for the owners recent activity . Has he or she played within a month ? If longer . Months , years . Do not go any further . Look at another CC .

      A CC owner has administrative permissions . Without an active owner . The CC suffers without those permissions .

      The owner is also responsible for providing all possible information and links necessary for all tiers and all formats , All types of tournaments . Or doling those responsibilities to others .

      How to play .

      How to lower ones average

      How to tier up

      How to upgrade equipment

      How to use and find information in the CC Forum .

      How to use and find the WGT main Forums

      How to rise up through the CC ranks . Only an owner can do that .Recruit , Member , Veteran , Director , etc

      What is a Director? What do they do ?

      The owner also delegates responsibilities to other motivated and informed CC members .

      These permissions below are crucial . Only an owner can utilize the options .

     

    The owner will know how to help the CC to progress in certain events . If that is on the agenda of the CC .

    The owner directs the members to update their own account pages to activate various options .

      There is much more . A CC without an active owner will not have any of this above . And so many other important roles .

      Members won't even know . And wonder why all CC members are recruits . NOT A GOOD SIGN .

      When searching for a CC . If you know the names of CC's . You can type them into the CC search .

      Or you can read about 100's of GR8 CC's in Country Club Corner .

      Or each WGTer has their CC listed on their profile page . Just click on that CC . Look at the owners profile .

      Once you find a perspective CC . Message the owner on his or her wall . Let he or she know you are interested . Could he or she please message you back . THIS IS IMPORTANT . Depending on how quick and what kind of response you get . If you get one at all . Will help determine if this is a good CC for you .

    This! All the time!

    Let the owner (or a director) be interested in you - shows that they are active and avoids tons of problems!

    And remember: You enter for free, and you leave for free (and on your own account)!

      Correct . And are free to try as many CC's as you wish .

      But to cut down on the number of attempts . Each CC you find with personable owner , directors , members . Will lend toward a lengthy and enjoyable stay .

      Something else I need to point out . CC's are used to and deal with every different tier on a daily basis .

      Although there are some appear to be somewhat middle tiered . And some largely upper tiered .

      Most are all tiered . And all tiers are respected . And given an equal voice in many CC matters .

      There is no reason to be intimidated . Or feel lesser . On the basis of your tier .

      We are all just WGT players trying to find a way to hit that little ball better and easier . And have fun doing it

      There should be nothing here . Too serious . Not to have fun .

      If you have found a CC that meets or exceeds your hopes . Then you will likely get back as much or more than you put into it .

      If you work for yourself and beyond ( engage with other CC members ) . They in turn will work with you and then some .

      This is meant to benefit all . Not just yourself . Besides improving yourself . There are ways that you can contribute as well . To the GR8er good .

      If you are of the opinion that groups or CC's just aren't your cup of tea . Without having been part of a good healthy active CC .

      Then you just might be very surprised at how you become earnestly drawn to a very tight and organized yet casual and intelligent group of people .

      So take a deep breath . And jump all in . Try it . You might like it .

      Hi there,

      I am a new member and I was just wandering what benefits are there for me if I joined or created a CC?

      Hi Fanie,

      Joining a club (or creating your own) will introduce you to some new players rather quickly.  Most clubs are quite friendly and inviting and the players within them will be glad to help out a new fella just starting out.  Play advice would be the biggest intangible.  Joining a club also allows you to participate in Country Club tournaments if skill-gaming is allowed in your country.  Clubs are still a rather new addition to the site.  More features and things to do within clubs are in the future plans.

      Creating a CC costs 50 credits and there are some upgrade costs if you want larger clubs with more membership, but joining is free.  I recommend that new members find a club to join to get warmed up to the game and its players.  After you've been around for a while then you may consider starting your own club for your friends or fellow countrymen.


      Now that's what i'm talking about .

    OWNERLESS CC's WITH ACTIVE MEMBERS .


      Some of these CC's have been dead for a decade . I saw some . Where the owner joined WGT . Started a CC with a catchy name . Never played a game . Stayed Amateur . Yet the CC completely filled up . On its own .

      Some of these may not be big or popular . But there are still at least a couple few active players . Some with dozens still active .Most are 200 members plus .

      It is much worse than I even imagined having already seen hundreds of these ownerless CC's while searching for TRAILBLAZERS . But did not think to copy them at the time . So I scanned a few this evening . Shocking .

      Not even the tip of the iceberg .

    Icon, and quite a few great players, will be disappointed to hear BolloxinBruges is no longer owner of The Deviations.  It couldn't be that they know more about this than you do, could it?

      Of course in many cases I would hope that the members would be completely aware of the conundrum or circumstance they find themselves in . Much more aware than I . For sure .

      But on the other hand . In many other cases . I am quite sure that if they are aware or even if they are not . They do not know what they are missing . And or they do not know what their alternatives are . Sadly .

      Situations like that . Where there is not any information readily available for them . Unfortunately many would need to be led by the hand and directed what to do next .

      In the other most drastic or sudden catastrophic event that finds the already altogether and organized CC suddenly absent an owner . There is no back up plan or plan B . WGT does not provide any outs or ins regarding their ownership transfer policies .

      Hopefully someday . They will wise up and see the necessity that almost all cases warrant a protocol to allow a or some proven worthy candidates the ability to obtain the owner less CC's . To provide organization , stability , information etc . Whatever is needed per CC .

      That has been obvious since long before I got here .

      I also post these things . For the benefit of the many that do not know this is occurring . Some may find it of interest . Some could care less .

      But no DP I do not think for a moment I am telling the affected informed victims something they didn't know already .

      And there are hundreds of CC's exactly  in the same boat as The Deviations . With as many and more veteran and well known players that have no owner . Or the owners tools that are so essential to running a CC .

      That was before 2021 . Since the start of 2021 . Those hundreds of CC's has grown to thousands of owner less CC's .

      I think it was about 6 or so years ago .  EasyEdward posted :

    EasyEdward:

    About 18 months ago Shoe mentioned in the Forum that there were in excess of 44,000 CCs in WGT.

     

    So by now any number between 50,000 and 60,000 is probably equally likely.

    <^><^><^><^><^><^>

      And now 6.5 years later easily more than 80,000 CC's . Or more . The potential number of lost souls in dead CC's is astronomical . Hell there are tons of CC's with owners . That have no organization and are completely lost .
