Description Edit | History

There are many versions of the game that have been created throughout the years, but a fairly consistent feature between them all is the availability of a variety of 18-hole courses with different themes and levels of difficulty. A common motif among many of these courses, especially in more recent versions, is the existence of shortcuts or trick shots to help cut strokes off the player's score. These shortcuts can often make it easier to birdie, eagle, or in rarer cases double eagle than in most golf video games and especially more than in a real round of golf. Another common feature among many of these courses is that the front 9 (first 9 holes) is set up to be easier than the back 9 (last 9 holes). The first couple of holes will normally have wide fairways, flat greens, and low wind speed. The last couple of holes will almost always have hard-to-reach fairways, high winds, and/or heavily-sloped greens.

Even though a player might replay the same course, they may notice some differences each time. The tee boxes may have moved, the winds may have shifted, the pin placements on the green may be different, it might no longer be raining, the water may have risen and the lake may have frozen over - creating a shortcut on a hole that wasn't there before. These changes occur each time a new game is started, creating a unique experience every round.

In addition, there have been many celebrity sound and video recordings that have been built into the game throughout the years. Sportscasters Pat Summerall and Jim Nantz along with professional golfers Peter Jacobsen, Gary Player, Chris DiMarco and Laura Diaz have all contributed advice, sarcastic remarks, and witty criticism to the many versions of the game. Former Golden Tee national champion Steven Sobe has been added to the LIVE versions of the game as a mentor for new players, showing them the basics of the game every time a game is played.

Finally, the creators of Golden Tee are also very fond of adding easter eggs into their games. Things such as aliens, bigfoot, dead bodies, and groundhogs holding Coca-Cola cans are just some of the things that Incredible Technologies has strategically programmed throughout the nooks and crannies of their virtual golf courses, normally when you decide to veer off the beaten path.

The original title "Golden Tee Golf" was introduced in 1989 as a 2-D video golf experience. The original title paved the way for Golden Tee 3D in 1995 and Golden Tee Fore! in 2000. In 2005, Golden Tee LIVE was introduced.
