  • Reboot Your Week with CC Event #208 🤖

    03 Aug 2023

    Is AI going to take over golf? Probably not, but join this new CC Event while you mull it over. If your club wins, you all get a robot tee marker and flag to let the world know golf is safe from AI.

    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!

  • Challenge Your Skills in Winner's Circle

    02 Aug 2023

    August Winner’s Circle is heading to Long Island! Can you conquer hole 8 at Bethpage Black? It'll be worth it if you do.

    If you’re new to Winner’s Circle, it’s simple to play! Just 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 you can always buy more for extra chances.

    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!
