    Coming soon... Play the main event of the 2018 Virtual U.S. Open, the Qualifier tournament featuring 18 holes of unlimited stroke play on the new 10th anniversary course.

    This special course was created to celebrate 10 years of the Virtual U.S. Open on WGT and features two holes from the previous nine U.S. Open Championship host courses.

    Two players will each win a grand prize trip to the 2019 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, one lucky sweepstakes winner (regardless of their score) and the top leaderboard score.

    FIXES AND IMPROVEMENTS

    • Set of the Week Scores - Fixed an issue that caused Set of the Week Clash events to count toward your averages

    CC Event #71 runs 4/19-4/20 with multiple 4-hour Clashes, so be sure to play as many games as you can for your club and keep your eyes on the leaderboard.

    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 to play with a similar skill level club. Start playing! 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.

  • It's time... Stock up on Nike Balls

    30 Mar 2018

    Nike balls will be removed from the WGT Pro Shop at the end of April, so now's the time to stock up on your favorites!

    Back in November 2016, we announced that Nike virtual clubs were being removed from the game, timed with Nike's announcement that they were getting out of the golf equipment game.

    Nike virtual golf balls have remained in the game, but we’ll be removing them near the end of April.

    Please hold the shouting for a minute...

    We know there are a lot of players that love their Nikes, so you still have time to stock up on your favorites. The Pro Shop removal will NOT impact anything you already have in your inventory, so you'll still have any that you've purchased until you run out as usual.

    Lastly, we have some really exciting things in the works right now that we hope you're as excited about as we are. Seriously, BIG. THINGS. that we'll announce as soon as we can. Classic WGT cliffhanger! 😉

    Get All the Nike Balls

    (PS: WGTChampion just puked from excitement in the office.)
