Since its inception in 1989, Golden Tee has become a ubiquitous part of barroom popular culture. Throughout this time, millions have played on over 100,000 units in bars and pubs in more than a dozen different countries. The original title Golden Tee Golf was introduced long before anyone knew what it would become. A 2-D video golf experience, it was Golden Tee Golf's competitive nature and cutting-edge trackball control that formed the model of success that the game thrived off of ever since. Its uniquely intuitive controls, coupled with a simple, yet highly competitive video game experience, earned Golden Tee the title of the "pool table of the next generation" among the masses. This paved the way for the success of Golden Tee 3-D in 1995 and Golden Tee FORE! in 2000. Throughout those years the game went from a small nightly tradition for some, to a pop-culture phenomenon. The world came to expect Golden Tee in the corner of every pub and millions of players craved the competitive social experience that the game is famous for. The Golden Tee Home Edition is the same game as the bar edition—minus the coin slot. It is the same size, has the same programming, same look and same legendary trackball that has made it the most successful arcade game ever made.
