  • Exciting Announcement: WGT is Now on Discord! 🎉

    11 May 2022

    We’re very excited to announce the release of a brand new Discord server for WGT players.

    For those who don’t know, Discord is the easiest way to engage with the WGT community using voice, video, and text. By talking, chatting, hanging out and staying close with other players and communities, Discord allows users to get in touch in a variety of ways.

    Discord servers work similar to an online chat room, but with both text and voice channel support. It’s the preferred platform for players, providing them with a number of ways to find each other, coordinate games and talk while playing!

    How will Discord be used for WGT?

    • Use this online community-building space to meet other players and talk about all things WGT!

    • Receive updates and information on new game features that isn’t always as available on the forums

    • Have real-time conversations with WGT team members and stay up to date on the latest WGT news and product releases

    Join the WGT Golf Discord Server

    (If you are brand new to Discord you can download it here first.)

    Does this mean the forums are going away? No not at all! Discord is a platform that is much more equipped to facilitate real-time conversations, meaning it will work in conjunction with our current forum setup.

    Hope to see everybody join the community soon!

  • May Winner’s Circle is Live 🎯

    04 May 2022

    Has your golf game been improving lately? Test your accuracy in this month’s Winner’s Circle event!

    To play, land your ball in one of the colored rings surrounding the cup by taking one shot from the fairway of the 5th hole at Celtic Manor (CTTH). To maximize competition, all players will be using special Winner's Circle clubs.

    If you land your ball in one of the rings or in the hole you’ll win prize chests, which include items like apparel packs, sleeves of golf balls and more. Each prize chest is coordinated to match a ring of the same color on the green. 

    A few things to know:

    • All players will use the same exclusive Winner’s Circle-branded club set

    • The hole, pin placement, green speed and wind rating will not change from one shot to the next, however you may see slight wind direction and wind speed changes

    • If the timer expires before you take your shot, that shot will be lost

    • Winner's Circle is a limited-time event, so any remaining shots will stay in your inventory and can be used in future events (*excludes free shots that are only available during that event)

    Good Luck!

    *This event runs 5/4/22 to 5/8/22 and is open to all WGT players.

    If you’re new to CC Events, there are 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 total points from their Clashes wins.

    • When your club enters the event, you’ll be matched with a club of a similar skill level and a timer will keep track of how much play is left in that Clash.

    • Club members from both sides can play as many rounds as they’d like during that 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 is made up of Club Clashes that last for 4 hours so be sure to keep playing and keep your eyes on the leaderboard.
