  • New High-Stakes Ready-Go's

    17 Oct 2011


    For over a year now, the Ready-Go tournaments on WGT have grown in popularity with thousands of WGT players now competing in hundreds of Ready-Go tournaments. So, last week, we expanded our Ready-Go tournaments from $1 entry fee to higher stakes tournaments, with $5, $10 and $20 entry fees.

    The new Ready-Go Tournaments work the same way. You pick a Ready-Go, pay 100, 500, 1,000 or 2,000 WGT Credits to enter, and then play the course to post your score. Once 50 people have entered and posted scores, that Ready-Go is over, and the winners are automatically notified, typically in about 24 hours.

    Ready-Go's have a great payout, with the Top 30 of 50 players earning WGT Credits, and first place paying 6X the entry fee, as follows...


    • $ 1 Ready-Go - 100 credit ($1) entry fee = 600 credits ($6) for first place
    • $ 5 Ready-Go - 500 credit ($5) entry fee = 3,000 credits ($30) for first place
    • $10 Ready-Go - 1,000 credit ($10) entry fee = 6,000 credits ($60) for first place
    • $20 Ready-Go - 2,000 credit ($20) entry fee = 12,000 credits ($120) for first place


    As always, you can use your WGT Credits to enter match play challenges and paid tournaments, in our Pro Shop to upgrade your virtual golf equipment and get real-world prizes, or to play more Ready-Go's.

    We'll be watching the tournaments closely and adjusting the mix of courses, holes and entry fees for November. Enjoy!


  • New WGT Fall Tour Series & Prizes

    12 Oct 2011

    The new WGT Fall Tour Series features free monthly tournaments from Oct thru Dec with both virtual equipment and cash prizes, culminating in a final Tour Championship with a $1,000 grand prize.

    The low scores in each Monthly Qualifier will qualify to play in the Monthly Championship with a chance to win cash prizes, and every player has a chance to win with a random drawing of one player at each Tier (Pro, Tour Pro, Master, Tour Master, Legend) to get a top WGT virtual driver, the TaylorMade R11 Driver, normally not unlocked until Level 88.

    Play The Oct Qualifier

    Note, the Oct Qualifier starts with 18 holes on Kiawah Island, with the Top 100 playing in the Oct Championship featuring two 18-hole rounds on Congressional and Bethpage Black.


  • New WGT Balls for Baseball Playoffs

    04 Oct 2011

    WGT has just released special-edition virtual golf balls to celebrate the baseball playoffs. These popular WGT GI-SD vapor balls give you extra distance and control on your WGT shots.

    There are balls in team colors for all 8 cities in the playoffs...

    American League - Detroit, New York, Texas and Tampa Bay

    National League - Arizona, Milwaukee, Philadelphia and St. Louis

    ...and as a small condolence, we also included balls for Atlanta and Boston.

    In October, the day after each team wins their divisional series, WGT will be running a special promotion, so fans can stock-up on free balls for their favorite teams.
