  • CC Event #138 Will Brighten Your Day

    12 Nov 2020

    Add a touch of sunshine to your golf game in CC Event #138, featuring these sunflower tee markers and flags. 

    Play now through Fri, 11/13 to win these new tee markers and flags, plus the top 500 clubs will also receive Course Builder currency for custom courses.

    Don’t know what Course Builders and custom courses are all about? Learn more here.

    Play Now

    PS, did you know: You can earn up to 2X Country Club XP, carry even more CC Passes and generate Passes faster with a WGT Plus or Premier Membership? Upgrade now and the benefits last for an entire year!

    CC Event #138 runs 11/12-11/13 with multiple 4-hour Clashes, so be sure to play as many games as you can for your club and keep your eyes on the leaderboard.

    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!

    Here’s how it works: Each event is made up of Club Clashes which last for a limited amount of time (usually a few hours). When your club enters the event, you’ll be matched with a similar skill level club. Start playing! 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.

    Learn more about CC Events and Club Clashes.
