More Time-Released Content Coming to Golden Tee 2018
Seven New Courses Now Available; More Surprises This April
(March 23, 2018 – Vernon Hills, IL) Golden Tee 2018, the latest incarnation of the popular Golden Tee Golf franchise, was released in October 2017 to thousands of eager operators and players across North America. Since the initial release, Incredible Technologies has continued to boost the excitement and value of the update by releasing even more new courses and features to online Golden Tee 2018 machines through an aggressive time-released schedule.
The new content cavalcade began on November 1, with the debut of new balls and club sets, a new Spin type called “release”, and expanded Closest to the Pin and Money Shot game modes. In the months that followed, two all-new 18-hole courses were released in December and March, raising the total new courses to an unprecedented seven. In addition, more clothing achievements were released in February and a third wave is set for June. This month, more variety was added to the Daily Contest, and online qualifying for the Golden Tee World Championship began.
“We are committed to keeping players interested in Golden Tee throughout the year,” said Don Pesceone, Vice President of Amusements and head of the Golden Tee team. “Delivering new features and surprises at key points throughout the year is engaging players longer than ever, which in turn benefits operators with a strong cashbox.”
The next time-released milestone takes place on April 2, and it is a big one. Once released, the original five 2018 courses will have all-new tee positions on nearly every hole. This means that every course will offer a new and different look at the hole, creating new skill opportunities. Some par 3 holes may become a par 5 and vice versa, making playing the courses virtually new again.
“This is a bold new experiment,” said Pesceone. “After 6 months of playing the courses, we are resetting the bar. Players will have to re-learn the courses and master new shots and strategies. If this proves popular we could be in for a nice bump in earnings on par with the initial update release.”
New tee positions are scheduled to launch automatically on Monday April 2. In addition, World Championship qualifying runs through April 11 through online Prize Play, followed by special qualifying events on April 23, 26 and 27. The live Golden Tee World Championship takes place at The Orleans Casino in Las Vegas on June 8-10, with over $100,000 being awarded.
