  • Start Your Summer With a New CC Event

    22 Jun 2023

    Are you a ketchup or mustard on your hotdog person? Win the first CC Event of the summer, and you’ll get both – all members of the winning club will get the ketchup and mustard tee marker and flag.

    New to CC Events? We’ve got you covered with a few things you should know:

    • CC Events allow WGT Country Clubs to compete against each other for bragging rights and special in-game rewards

    • The club that earns the most points from their Clashes wins

    • When your club enters the event, you will match with a club of a similar skill level, and a timer keeps track of how much play remains in that Clash

    • Club members from both sides can play as many rounds as they’d like during the play time using Club Passes and Superpasses to earn points

    • WGT Country Clubs can use Course Builder currency to create custom courses to play in country club tournaments

    Each event contains Club Clashes that last four hours, so keep playing and keep your eyes on the leaderboard!

    Not in a WGT Country Club yet? Learn more here to join one or start your own!

    Did you know you can earn up to 2X Country Club XP, carry even more CC Passes, and generate Passes faster with a WGT Plus or Premier Membership? Purchase a WGT Plus or Premier Membership in the Pro Shop now.

    *CC Event #205 runs 6/22/23-6/23/23 and is open to WGT players on all platforms.

  • Play Winner's Circle at Torrey Pines!

    21 Jun 2023

    WGT’s ultimate accuracy test is kicking off summer with some California sun! See how accurate you really are on hole 16 at Torrey Pines.

    New to Winner’s Circle? No worries, it’s simple to play! Land your ball in one of the colored rings around the hole (or sink it if you can) to win prize chests. Prize chests are color-coordinated with each ring color and include apparel packs, golf ball sleeves and more. All players get one free shot, but additional shots are available for purchase.

    To ensure this is a fair test of accuracy, all players will use designated Winner’s Circle clubs so everyone is on a level playing fairway!

    Three things to keep in mind:

    • Winner’s Circle is a limited-time event, but any remaining unused purchased shots will stay in your inventory for the next Winner’s Circle event.

    • Don’t let the timer expire, or you will lose that shot.

    • The only change from shot to shot will be minor wind direction and speed changes.

    See you at the tee box!
