    New Best-Of Water Course

    Announcing the third new "Best Of" golf course, as voted on by WGT players.

    Other WGT Best-Of courses include Best-Of Challenge (9 famous shots) and Best-Of Strokeplay (18 top holes).

    Improved Skins Game

    The new "Skins" multi-player game now has a Pick-Up Ball option to help speed up Skins games.

    You can play Skins for fun or credits, with features like carry-overs and two-tie-all-tie, that add to the suspense of Skins games.

    Reduced Cabo Del Sol Greens Fees

    WGT has reduced Greens Fees on the Cabo del Sol golf course from TruGolf.

    The new Greens Fees are 60 credits for 18 holes, 40 credits for 9 holes, and 0 credits for the closest-to-the-hole challenge.

    Enjoy the ocean views and birdie opportunities at this Nicklaus-designed resort course in Mexico.

    Improved WGT Surveys

    It's even easier to earn free WGT Credits with new types of online surveys, many of which are easier to qualify for. See the new surveys in the Take Surveys tab.

    Use your free WGT Credits to upgrade your equipment, enter tournaments, and for match play and skins challenges.
