  • Cook the Competition in a New Showdown

    29 May 2024

    Crank up the heat! It’s time to make barbecue chicken. Grill your way to the top of the leaderboard in the Backyard BBQ Showdown – the qualifying round starts now!

    If it’s your first time playing in a Showdown, here is everything you need to know.

    Qualifying Round

    • The qualifying round lasts three days

    • Players have a daily chance each day of the qualifying round to secure their spot in the elimination round

    • The top 50% of the qualifying round leaderboard advance to the elimination round

    • Players that qualify on day one (top 50%) do not need to play on day two or three of the qualifying round

    • Players that do not qualify on day one are still eligible to compete on days two or three to secure an elimination round spot

    Elimination Round

    • The elimination round lasts two days

    • Players only get one chance to grab a spot in the final round, unlike the qualifying round

    • The top 50% of the elimination round leaderboard advance to the final round

    Final Round

    • The final round also lasts two days

    • If you’ve made it this far, you’ll receive a prize no matter what, but the higher you rank, the bigger the prizes

    Other Things to Know

    • We base scoring on total strokes, meaning the fewer shots you take to complete your matches, the higher you rank on the leaderboard

    • Incomplete or forfeited holes score as bogeys

    Backyard BBQ Showdown is open to all players on WGT for PC, WGT for Mac, and WGT Golf Mobile!

  • Can You Beat the Competition in a New CC Event?

    23 May 2024

    It’s all about team rhythm. Assemble your club to compete in CC Event #229. All winning club members take home the Tambourine tee marker so you can feel the rhythm long after the clash is over.

    New to CC Events? We’ve got you covered with a few things you should know:

    • 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 points from their Clashes wins

    • When your club enters the event, you will match with a club of a similar skill level, and a timer keeps track of how much play remains in that Clash

    • Club members from both sides can play as many rounds as they’d like during the play time using Club Passes and Superpasses to earn points

    • WGT Country Clubs can use Course Builder currency to create custom courses to play in country club tournaments

    Each event contains Club Clashes that last four hours, so keep playing and keep your eyes on the leaderboard!

  • Test Your Aim on Wolf Creek – Winner’s Circle Starts Now!

    15 May 2024

    Winner’s Circle is desert-bound! Shoot your shot on Wolf Creek hole 11 to win prizes.

    New to Winner’s Circle? No worries, it’s simple to play! Land your ball in one of the colored rings around the hole (or sink it if you can) to win prize chests. Prize chests are color-coordinated with each ring color and include apparel packs, golf ball sleeves and more. All players get one free shot, but additional shots are available for purchase.

    To ensure this is a fair test of accuracy, all players will use designated Winner’s Circle clubs so everyone is on a level fairway!

    Three things to keep in mind:

    • Winner’s Circle is a limited-time event, but any remaining unused purchased shots will stay in your inventory for the next Winner’s Circle event.
    • Don’t let the timer expire, or you will lose that shot!
    • The only change from shot to shot will be minor wind direction and speed changes.

    See you on the tee!
