    • Players that do not qualify on day 1 can still compete on days 2 or 3 to advance

    Elimination Round

    • The elimination round lasts two days, with players having only one chance to advance to the final round

    • The top 50% of the leaderboard qualifies for the final round

    Final Round

    • The final round lasts two days

    • All players that make it to the final round will win prizes, and higher ranks win bigger prizes!

    Other Things to Know

    • Scoring is based on total strokes, meaning the fewer shots you take to complete your matches, the higher you will rank on the leaderboard

    • Any incomplete or forfeited holes will be scored as bogeys

    Don’t miss your chance to play, going on now on WGT Golf Mobile – or the new WGT for PC or WGT for Mac!

  • Join the Madness in CC Event #146

    CC Event #146 runs 3/4-3/5 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.
