Golf is more than just a video game. Since it’s inception in 1990, the iconic trackball-controlled arcade game has become a ubiquitous part of barroom popular culture. In the past twenty-plus years, millions have played on over 100,000 units in bars and pubs of over a dozen different countries.
The original title Golden Tee Golf was introduced in 1990. A 2-D video golf experience, it was Golden Tee Golf’s competitive nature and cutting-edge trackball control that formed the model of success that the game thrived off of ever since. Its uniquely intuitive controls, coupled with a simple, yet highly competitive video game experience earned Golden Tee the title of the “pool table of the next generation” among the masses.
The original title paved the way for the success of Golden Tee 3-D in 1995 and Golden Tee Fore! in 2000. Throughout those years the game went from a small nightly tradition for some, to a pop-culture phenomenon for many. The world came to expect Golden Tee in the corner of every pub and millions of players craved the competitive social experience that the game is famous for.
And in 2005 the video golf mold was broken again with the release of Golden Tee LIVE – a revolutionary always-online version of Golden Tee. More than just a Golden Tee Fore! update, LIVE utilizes state-of-the-art technology to bring Golden Tee’s excitement to new heights by simply combining it with a tried and true feature: competition.
LIVE pits video golfers across the world in head-to-head contests for Glory or Prizes. From the comfort of their local taverns and restaurants, thousands of players can compete simultaneously while scores are updated universally, hole-by-hole.
Golden Tee LIVE represents the future of video golf and out-of-home video game experiences. It’s the next step in Golden Tee’s rich tradition and has opened the floodgates for more excitement and unbridled competition to come.
