Are you a college student who loves golf? Nextgengolf and WGT (World Golf Tour by Topgolf) have teamed up to offer a unique virtual competition bringing college students together to compete in the inaugural WGT Collegiate Open at Kiawah Island's Ocean Course. Sit at home or in these chairs on the 18th at Kiawah to play.
I love staying connected with my friends and club golf team through the WGT app as we continue to learn remotely. We love that the golf feels real and it is even more fun with a lot of players.
