That exciting time is here when we start hearing about all the new courses and features with the next year’s update! Check back here often as your source for all the latest that Golden Tee 2017 has to offer.
Here’s the attract mode video featuring the new logo for 2017. And if you want a quick summary, check out this 2-minute video introducing most of the new features!
In addition to the 5 new courses, Golden Tee is introducing Freaky Fridays, a new segment of the Daily Contest where the holes will be assembled from among all holes in the LIVE era to match a theme. Expected examples include an all-par-3, all-par-5, all drivable par-4, best of a certain year, Jim Zielinski’s favorites, the hardest holes, and a course you eventually vote on!
The new clothing is always anticipated each year, and 2017 is looking to deliver. Check out this collection of America gear followed by the vape pen. Donald and Hillary even have their faces in the game! Next, check out all the new footwear available! Perhaps you’d like a terrifying clown head? There’s also an abundance of jerseys this year. And you can now wear emojis on your head! Fashion Fridays will give us new looks each week! Here’s more to introduce the additions to your virtual wardrobe, and check out this video demo that Golden Tee put together to showcase the 2017 collection.
If you think the clothing and footwear is outrageous, then check out these new custom putters for 2017! Buy any one of seven crazy putters for $1 and attach to a course like you would with your Build-A-Bag via the GT Caddy app. Here’s more to get you acquainted.
For the first time in 10 years, your virtual golfer’s body gets an upgrade as well! You’ll notice more tone and features and better form-fitting clothing to go with it. All this comes with a teaser for future improvements beyond 2017.
In other big news, Golden Tees will now be available on the older courses! Up through 2016, you could not use Golden Tees prior to the year they were introduced…but now you can! Get ready to have a whole new experience on the classics.
Another new feature allows you accessorize your ball with colors and effects off the tee. You can’t customize the distance and spin features into new options — you’ll still have to base the visuals around an existing ball option, but the Build a Ball feature certainly adds a new level of flare to the game! A couple other nice features are the ability to associate balls to particular courses by default, like you can do with your club sets today, and an auto-refill option so that you won’t run out of balls as long as there are funds in your app’s player wallet!
For the first time, the CTTP Online feature will allow you to compete against others in a contest but not for prizes…this is a fun way to get others playing this exciting game mode without fear of wasting their money in a cash contest.
In one of the most exciting advancements in the history of the game, the Golden Tee social network is exploding this year with the concept of Invitationals. Here is an introduction to Player Invitationals followed by an article prepping us more about the GT friends network. With this feature, you can create your own private contests and events, sending invitations to your friends to join you on a course with the same conditions, even playing for money using your player wallet from the GT Caddy app! Apply handicaps for differing skill levels, track your stats, and enjoy this new era of connectivity! Here’s an instructional demo that Golden Tee put together showing you how to set up an Invitational. Finally, to pull everything together, here’s an instructional guide from how to start to how to play with this feature!
