Worldwide Weekly Tournaments – How Do They Work?

WVG Worldwide Tornaments logo

Test yourself on the course like never before. Worldwide Virtual Golf (WVG) makes tournaments from across the globe possible. Every week, the site hosts the Worldwide Tournament that allows users to compete in a single global tournament against other WVG members. Any member can participate, and their rounds can be played from any course and on any day they choose. Our advanced algorithm will factor out course difficulty, so players’ WVG Handicap scores represent only their golf skills and how they played during that particular round.  So sign up, tee off, and make sure you play your best game possible. Every shot counts, the pressure is on.

The best part is, membership for Worldwide Virtual Golf is completely free for the rest of the 2015 year!

How The Tournament Works

Once you sign up for the Worldwide Tournament, you’ll be able to enter your golf rounds on the Scores page. The Worldwide Tournament, just like other formal tournaments, is four days long. However, it’s up to you when and where you play, and even how many rounds you play. You can play a round of golf today, tomorrow, or any other day. You can play on your local course, or Pebble Beach. You don’t even have to play all four rounds, just enter your most recent score for each remaining day. But if you’re only going to play one round, it better be good!

Player’s scores will start appearing on the Scores page on each Thursday, but scores can be entered on any day before the Sunday end date. Continue reading below to find out how to sign up for the Worldwide Tournaments and how to post your scores.
