What is Golden Tee?

Golden Tee Fade Since its inception in 1989, Golden Tee has become a ubiquitous part of barroom popular culture.

Throughout this time, millions have played on over 100,000 units in bars and pubs in more than a dozen different countries. The original title Golden Tee Golf was introduced long before anyone knew what it would become. 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. This 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. 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.

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. Real-Time competition.

At any point, in any pub, players can now compete against golfers from around the world. The addition of online play has created a new wave of stat tracking and competition where players can play for prizes and monitor their progress and improvement both on the game and Goldentee.com or with the new GT Caddy app available for Android and iOS.

In Golden Tee 2017, we changed the landscape of the game by introducing Player Invitationals. With 2018, we’re kicking the door in on that and giving players more ways to challenge their friends and win! We have opened select Freaky Friday courses as invitational contest options, increased the potential invite prize pool from $100 to $1000 and added hundreds of new ways to customize your golfer!

We are also adding two reimagined Golden Tee Fore! courses to the mix in January and March to bring the course total to an astounding 67 different courses! Time-released content and time-released tee boxes (coming Spring 2018) will also keep the game fresh and fun for players of any skill level!
