  • Throw Shade on the Competition in CC Event #152 🌴

    10 Jun 2021

    Breeze by the competition in CC Event #152, featuring these Palm Tree Tee Markers and Flags.

    Play now through 6/11 to win these for your country club, plus the top 500 clubs will also receive Course Builder currency for custom courses. Don’t know what Course Builders and custom courses are all about? Learn more here.

    Here’s how CC Events work: CC Events allow WGT Country Clubs to compete against each other for bragging rights and special in-game rewards. The club that earns the most total points from their Clashes wins. When your club enters the event, you’ll be matched with a club of a similar skill level and a timer will keep track of how much play is left in that Clash. Club members from both sides can play as many rounds as they’d like during that time using Club Passes and Superpasses to earn points.

    Each event is made up of Club Clashes which last for 4 hours so be sure to keep playing and watch the leaderboard!

    Join the Fun

    PS, did you know: You can earn up to 2X Country Club XP, carry even more CC Passes and generate Passes faster with a WGT Plus or Premier Membership? Upgrade now and the benefits last for an entire year.
