  • There's Something Sweet in CC Event #147

    CC Event #147 runs 4/8-4/9 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!

    Here’s how it works: Each event is made up of Club Clashes which last for a limited amount of time (usually a few hours). When your club enters the event, you’ll be matched 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.

    Learn more about CC Events and Club Clashes.
