That's right, five years ago today, on July 18, 2008, WGT made our first blog post.
It was about the WGT helicopter photographing the Pinehurst #8 golf course. Interestingly, WGT was back at Pinehurst last month, five years later, shooting Pinehurst #2 for next year's Virtual U.S. Open. This original post was also before WGT released our first full strokeplay course Kiawah Island in October of that year.
Five years later, WGT has grown to over 7 million registered players who have played over 300 million virtual rounds on 18 different golf courses. WGT is not only the biggest online golf game, but recently WGT became the largest website in the golf industry, with the most global visitors and most time on site of any other website in golf.
Thanks to ALL the WGT Players for ALL their support, and we've got a lot more planned for the next five years to grow the game even more.
