Golden Tee LIVE 2015 is now on test. I repeat, Golden Tee 2015 is now on test.
If you’re in the vicinity of the IT headquarters in the Chicago suburbs, you can get a sneak peek at the five new courses and even the Daily Contest.
Each year a handful of games are released to nearby locations as the 2015 release date approaches. These games are vital in development—a final bit of checks and balances before the product officially ships in late September. In a year with so many new and exciting additions, this process is even more critical.
Of course, things will still change between now and launch. The courses will get their necessary tweaks and the final product will process all feedback and adjust where it’s needed. For the most part, however, the game you’ll see is the game you’ll get.
Part of this experience—the centerpiece, if you will—is the new Daily Contest that was recently revealed and explained on Goldentee.com. To test the functionality of the contest, each test unit comes equipped with an early version of the contest. The prize payouts will be adjusted, but the contest will be live. The daily prize pool will be set at $100 and the payouts will be as follows for the top 15.
Keep in mind, these prizes can increase as more players join. For more information on how these contests will be run, click here. After you do, please go test out everything—the courses, the game modes, the equipment—and tell us what you think.
I know what you’re thinking…where can I play?
