Since 2015, it's been a staple of the Golden Tee release cycle. We bring you back—to Everest, to Egypt, to the Eiffel Tower. The storied history of Golden Tee’s course destinations is a part of the game’s legacy. And we celebrate that legacy each year with Classic Course of the Week.
For the uninitiated, the feature is simple: every week golfers can take on one of the many vintage courses that have debuted since 2005 in Prize Play contests, typically reserved for the current roster of GT courses. The following week, a new Classic course takes its place.
In the 2023-2024 update, Classic Course of the Week is going into overdrive. The way the Prize Play carousel is created behind the scenes has been completely reworked, affording the ability to turn Classic Course of the Week into Classic Courses of the Week at a moment’s notice.
“It’s hard to describe just how much this change will allow us to do when it comes to Prize Play course offerings,” said Adam Kramer, President of Incredible Technologies’ Amusement division. “We’ve been limited to offering one course on a very defined cycle for so long. Now, we’re ready to push the limits on what courses we can offer and when.”
What does this mean? Well, we’re about to find out. While the current courses will always be anchored at the head of the Prize Play carousel, the option to add additional Prize Play courses whenever we want has finally arrived
“We could theoretically add an entire year of courses, say 2007, to complement an already loaded slate of offerings,” Kramer added. “Or we could also add additional courses for a single day or weekend. Or, and this part excites us a great deal, we could lean on our passionate community to help crowdsource what course or courses they wish to play.”
Incredible Technologies plans to capitalize on the amazing GT community at times, giving players the ability to influence which Classic Course of the Week they'll tee off on next. (Stay tuned for more on this, social media!)
The game is about to change, and the passionate Golden Tee community is poised to help us change it. A new flexible, more in-depth way to decades of magnificent courses is on the horizon.
