What new for Golden Tee’s 30 Anniversary? From the developers of GT2019:

In Golden Tee 2017, we changed the landscape of the game by introducing Player Invitationals. With 2018, we kicked the door in on that mode and introduced the ability to challenge your friends for up to $1000!

With our 30th anniversary, we’re just getting started with revolutionary game-changers! Another seven new courses; five original creations and two re-imagined GT Fore! Courses that will be time-released in 2019.

In November, we’re introducing Events Mode. Call it a playground, call it a sandbox, call it whatever you want, but we’re taking chances with this new form of prize play mode.

Events Mode is where we can customize daily and weekly prize play contests to have certain types of wind, casual tee boxes, smaller contests, bigger prizes and even the chance to play a round of 18 with only 3 clubs!

Oh, and that World Championship that we hold every year with thousands and thousands of dollars up for grabs in Las Vegas? Our qualifier for Worlds will take place here as well and it will be bigger than ever!

With 2019, PGA legend John Daly joins the game and you can either golf as him or play against him and his team of 8 golfers in Real Time Rivals mode! You and up to two friends can challenge a computer rival in three different divisions: bronze, silver and gold. Good luck, friends!

When your customer has an entry or waiting area, a crane (claw) game is a great way to entertain while capturing cash on that floor space. Our crane games are high quality and are pure redemption (no tickets to mess with).

Tips to help your crane machine business:

  • Keep plush toys fluffed up, loose and as playable as possible and remember your game is a store front and must be attractive.
  • Arrange your toys stair step style by arranging the back row with the highest point of merchandise and gradually reduce each additional level or step as they come closer to the front of the machine. This provides maximum visibility and customers will get a good look at all the merchandise in the crane machine.
  • Keep your plush mixes facing toward the front with those next to the sides facing toward the sides if you have side glasses visible.
  • Try to keep the eyes of the animals facing towards the customer and arranged in a orderly fashion.
  • Distribute colors all around the game. Avoid placing same color toys together.
  • Keeping your equipment clean and in good working order is also important. Clean the outside of the glass every time you service your equipment and don’t forget the inside occasionally.
  • Keep coin entry ways and bill acceptors clear and working. If the bill acceptor quits working on a highly used game, revenues can suffer considerably.
  • Keep spare parts with you so that you can easily change out bad components when necessary. Or if you are low on parts, let us know what you need, and we’ll pull spare parts from our warehouses for you.
  • Place extra merchandise inside the bottom of the crane to make refilling easier.

Follow these suggestions and you will reap huge profits in the claw machine operating business.

Prize claw (crane games) games, non-redemption, are a specialty of Greater America Distributing. Claw games full of wonderful toys is a special favorite of our route operators. A tremendously popular low skill game.
