The Ultimate Gift for Golf Gurus
Coming up with clever holiday gifts is always a challenge, especially for someone who “has everything.” However, ways to get creative include gifts that provide experiences, not just things to accumulate. Think of enjoying a craft beer or wine of the month, flying a drone or model plane, shushing down the slopes on a customized snowboard, or playing a classic arcade game.
You’re never too old to play, and even hard-working adults need an excuse to discover their inner child now and then. With that in mind, think games when making your holiday gift list.The most appreciated and enjoyable games are those that get the players engaged, and a classic arcade game customized for use at home fits the bill.
If there is a golfer/gamer on your holiday gift list who has every golf book and product imaginable, look no further than the home edition version of Golden Tee Golf, the quintessential golf video game, now in its 30th year.”It’s the same exact game – arcade-style cabinet and all – that’s been played and adored at local pubs for 30 years,” according to a company statement. The Golden Tee Home Edition allows players to choose from more than 70 virtual golf courses, and offers hundreds of ways to personalize one’s avatar and equipment.
Players can purchase an online subscription that allows them to check their profile, choose their course, and use their gear, while comparing themselves to other players. In addition, the Real-Time Rivals feature allows players to compete against computer opponents such as legendary PGA tour player John Daly.
The classic game provides distraction and fun for serious golfers or anyone who is serious about video games, and they won’t get tired of it anytime soon. The 30th anniversary upgrade of Golden Tee includes new time-released content that will become available throughout the year.
The attractive game cabinet installs easily to HDTV and can easily be moved out of the way so as not to interfere with the rest of the room decor when not in use.
