  • Join the Winner’s Circle at PGA National

    08 Jul 2024

    Happy Monday! It’s time to test your accuracy on hole 17 at PGA National in a new Winner’s Circle.

    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 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 on the tee!

  • Slower is Better With Free Titleist Balls

    27 Jun 2024

    The slower the shot meter, the easier the shot. Titleist Pro balls make it happen – free when you purchase WGT Credits through 6/27.

    Purchase 2,000 or more WGT credits, and you’ll automatically receive free Titleist Pro V1x Balls (Ultra Slow Meter Vapor) (L0+). These game-changing balls add distance, and the slower swing meter makes every shot a little easier.

    Please note that these free Titleist balls will be automatically added to your inventory but will not equip automatically.
