    Make a statement with your driving distance and style with the new Cobra BiO CELL virtual driver -- now available in 5 colors.

    The Cobra BiO CELL driver offers more distance with less spin off the tee, plus a slower WGT swing meter to help you hit straighter and longer.

  • CC of the Week - The Old Duffers Retreat

    03 Sep 2014

    This week's Country Club of the Week is... The Old Duffers Retreat, an active and dedicated group of WGT players who take pride playing often and having fun doing it.

    The "old duffers" have consistently been a top-ranking club on the Weekly Leaderboards, and are currently #3 with more than 283,000 Weekly XP earned. At Club Level 7, they have unlocked a number of country club benefits, including a free Putter Pal and Shot Pal for all of their members, and earning +5% Club XP when members play using a Pass. At Level 8, the club will unlock an XP Bonus of +3% per round, when using a Pass. Keep leveling up your club to unlock these benefits too!

    The Old Duffers Retreat club owner, saltyoldtar is a Level 100 Legend and has been a WGT member since 2011, and had this praise to share about the club...

    "The Old Duffers Retreat has been built on all the members that are active and concerned with how the club does. The main thing we are so proud of is that all of our members have been active within the past two weeks. The Old Duffers Retreat has three great officers (Skip6029, DuFussMcGoo and ABQJeff) that keep everything going smoothly. I keep getting praise on the great job I do but it's not me, it's our members that have stepped up and made this club what it is today. Thanks goes to all the club members."

    The current Weekly Leaderboard below shows The Old Duffers Retreat in third place -- just behind two other familiar clubs, The Peoples Club (who have reached Level 8) and the Senior Citizens, last week's CC of the Week. 

  • Mannyankees Wins The First Tee Open on WGT

    02 Sep 2014

    WGT player Mannyankees wins the tie-breaker in the heated Tour Legend tier, to become The First Tee Open champion in the WGT Virtual Tour.

    Tour Legend players really showed up this month in The First Tee Open, with five top players shooting an impressive 106 on Bethpage Black and forcing a tie-breaker to determine the winner. 

    To break a tie, the system automatically compares scores for the Final 9, final 6 and final 3 holes, and if still a tie then it goes hole-by-hole starting with Hole 18 and working back. See tournament rules for details.

    Congratulations to ESTIENNEdansamcamHaojenTW and frenchconnect on their second place standing, which is a very strong finish given the tough field, and to all the winners of The First Tee Open who win their share of the 200,000 WGT Credit purse.

    The Virtual Tour season race is heating up, but is still anyone's game. With spots available for the top 64 players in each tier, many players still have the opportunity to qualify for the Virtual Tour Championship in December -- with a record purse of ONE MILLION WGT CREDITS. In the Tour Legend tier of the very best WGT players, dansamcam has won four regular events and currently sits in the #1 spot in the Season rankings, while poldimaier and frenchconnect have each won one major, placing them high at #2 and #4 in the season standings.

    WGT players should compete in the Virtual Tour every month, to accumulate Virtual Tour credits and qualify for the December Championship. This month's Major event in September is the Strike Out ALS Challenge held on Merion, host of the 2013 U.S. Open. As a Major tournament in the WGT Virtual Tour, there is a huge 400,000 WGT Credit purse up for grabs, split by the top 70 scores in each tier. This could push a current leaderboard winner further out of reach, or give a lower ranked player a huge jump up the standings. Don't miss it!

    WGT is very proud to be working with the ALS Association to support the fight against ALS to treat and cure this disease.
