  • Virtual Tour Jul-Sep Quarterly Season Champion is...

    27 Oct 2015

    Congratulations to Courtney01, the newest WGT Virtual Tour Quarterly Season Champion!

    Last week, Tour Legend Courtney01 took on Champion tier fmagnets to compete for the Jul-Sep Virtual Tour Quarterly Season Championship match. This Match Play round was a real nail-biter and could have gone either way with these top players. Here's a quick recap, in case you missed it...

    Courtney01 came out strong with a birdie on hole 3 and an eagle on 4 to stay 2-UP through the first 5 holes.

    Competition held strong while fmagnets fought back, then made things interesting with an exciting comeback to even out the score on the 10th. 

    Despite Courtney01's attempts to get ahead, fmagnets held strong under pressure to even the score again by hole 14. Ultimately, the match came down to the last two holes, where Courtney01 followed up a great shot with a birdie on 18 for the win and the 10,000 WGT Credit bonus prize.

    You can see all the highly skilled action for yourself, in the replay below.



    Take a look at what Tour Legend Courtney01 has in their virtual golf bag...

    Driver- TaylorMade R1 Super TP 9.0 White Driver (OBAN shaft) (L103+)

  • Your Club is in for a Real Treat with CC Event #10

    22 Oct 2015

    Play CC Event #10 going on NOW through Fri, 10/23.

    Halloween is near and CC Event #10's pumpkin tees and flags add great fear! 

    Ok, maybe not fear, but definitely fun.

    Compete against other country clubs for in-game rewards, club pride and NEW Halloween-themed pumpkin tee markers and flags.

    Go to Country Club

    CC Events allow WGT Country Clubs to compete against each other for golf glory and special in-game rewards. The club that earns the most total points from their Clashes wins.

    Each Event is made up of Club Clashes that last for a limited amount of time (usually a few hours). When your club enters the event, you'll get matched with another club close to your skill level, and a timer will show how much time is left in that Clash. Club members from both clubs can play as many rounds as they want during that time, using Club Passes and Superpasses to earn points.
