  • How’s Your Accuracy? Find Out in a New Winner’s Circle!

    13 Sep 2023

    It’s time to see how accurate you really are. Winner’s Circle is back and heading to Hole 15 at Chambers Bay! Only the best will sink their shots.

    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!
