Incredible Technologies is excited to announce the 2017 Golden Tee World Championship, taking place in Las Vegas next May. This year’s Championship will include 64 of the best players in North America squaring off for over $70,000 in prize money and Golden Tee immortality.
Online qualifying will take place on Golden Tee 2017 machines starting this November, and will include opportunities for players in every game format through March 2017. Players will be selected from the new “Freaky Friday” Daily Contests, Prize Play, Money Shot, and even a special contest for non-prize states.
“Our goal this year is to include as many players as possible in online qualifying,” said Scott Morrison, VP of Amusement Marketing at IT. “Some formats will run over a couple months and encourage repeat play, while others take place on a single daily contest. We expect a lot of excitement and extended play over the 5 month qualifying period.”
The online qualifier will result in 64 finalists, who will compete head-to-head in Las Vegas May 19 - 21 2017. Spectators are encouraged to attend throughout the wild weekend, and many matches will be live-streamed over the Internet. More than $70,000 in cash prizes is on the line, with $10,000 going to the Golden Tee Champ.
“The Golden Tee World Championship is another testament to IT’s commitment to the GT franchise,” said Don Pesceone, IT’s Amusements Division VP. “Creating exciting content that encourages repeat play and rewarding players for their skill have become important elements to the brand’s ongoing success.”
