  • Prove Yourself in Winner’s Circle!

    31 Aug 2022

    Just in time for Labor Day, we are back with a brand new Winner’s Circle event! Test your accuracy on Hole 17 at Pebble Beach.

    It’s easy to play. Land your ball in one of the colored rings around the hole (or sink it if you’re really accurate) to win prize chests. Prize chests are color-coordinated to each ring color and include apparel packs, golf ball sleeves, and more. All players get one free shot with more available to purchase.

    To ensure this is a fair test of accuracy, all players will use special Winner’s Circle clubs. Everyone is on a level playing fairway.

    Three things to keep in mind:

    • Winner’s Circle is a limited-time event (8/31/22 - 9/4/22), but any remaining unused purchased shots will stay in your inventory for our 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

    Shoot your shot today
