There’s big news from the world of Golden Tee where guys like myself are losing their minds over the news that Golden Tee appears ready to drop a portable home edition called Golden Tee Go — with ethernet and HDMI — with a price of $2,199 via Game Room Guys before the listing was pulled by the site. As you can see from the YouTube video below, the portable edition is pretty much just the gaming board, no console and no TV on the wall. You get a 15″ monitor or connect the unit to your own television.
This Golden Tee Go, according to the now-deleted listing, would include over 60 18-hole courses, the ability to access clothing, clubs, balls and all in the same size as the authentic Golden Tee track ball. No stand to put it on, but was that really that important for the price? Keep in mind a 2020 Golden Tee Live home edition — still minus the monitor — runs $4,999 on Game Room Guys.
So $5,000 vs. $2,200. Golden Tee is determined to get into the wheelhouse where guys can pull the trigger and not set off alarms at home with the wife. Still, it’s at a price where guys have to start deciding how much they really love Golden Tee. I could see a Golden Tee club going in on this one to make it more economical and leave it at the guy’s house that has the best garage bar that’s accessible to all members. I’m thinking a recently divorced 40-something who has a stocked fridge, maybe beer taps.
