Quoted from toastbot:

Sorry, what is hand-built here? That looks like a pretty standard pedestal cab. (honest question, no offense)

Thanks for the compliment. This cabinet was a "cut-down" from an original Silver Strike upright. A few build pics:

Just ordered gt 2019 home edition.

Most of the OP's use 42", I bought a 50" on sale for $299 and I like it.....is it sad that the newest tv in my house is hooked up to my GT?

It's personal preference......

Hmmm 50 ?
Well I’ve had a 63” plasma in my basement for years . Back then that was one of the biggest TVs
I’d like to replace that with an 82” now
And use the 63” for GT
But , I might not hear the end of it! Haha
I can do whatever I want with my Money
I was just told I can’t junk up the place .

I'm using a 55" mounted on the factory stand. It looks and feels like the perfect size IMO

#906 61 days ago

I'd say 50-55" is perfect if you are using the stand. If you are wall-mounted, you can move the pedestal closer or farther away from the wall to suit your tastes. I'm using a 55" wall-mounted TV myself.

#907 61 days ago

I have both a 50" and 42" hanging on the wall. In my small room the 42" is fine for a pedestal and 50" seems excessive. However, when in a larger space like the living room I prefer the 55" and the pedestal about 10' away.

Forgot to mention- im using the factory stand...…..

Looks like 50-55" is the consensus here....

#909 61 days ago

The bar where I play 2019 at has a 65" and it's pretty freakin Badass.

#910 61 days ago

Ok ,so I’m guessing at least a 50”!
It will be mounted on a wall . If I want a bigger tv I’ll just move the pedestal closer.
Thank you everyone!

Wow that looks good
Did it come with nighthawk cpu and such or did you have to buy alone?

Quoted from rollinover:

The Silver Strike game did have a nighthawk inside, but it was the older AGP style motherboard, which required the purchase of a new mobo. I was able to re-use the I/O board and wiring harness, however. I had to source my own Golden Tee CID and hard drive, graphics, and other various odds and ends.

#913 59 days ago

Hey guys I have a Golden Tee 2013 I'm looking to update to something newer. If you have a drive and security chip (I think that's all I need?) of a newer year you'd sell please let me know. I don't connect online, just play in my house. I would need it shipped to Ontario Canada. Thanks.

#914 58 days ago

Curious, does anyone know how much power the gt 2019 draws?
Can’t find the specs on this.

Help?
Just received my golden tee 2019 and video card not working?
Any trick without breaking seal
If not I’m stuck waiting for whole me computer apparently ugh!

Have you let it boot for a good 5 minutes? I just upgraded the video card on my 2018 (720p VGA to 1080p HDMI) and freaked out when I couldn't see all the linux boot log stuff that had come up previously, but after a few minutes, it played fine. It's almost like the 1080p resolution is too high to show the boot stuff.

I’m unsure if I’m in the correct hdmi?
Can you take a pic where to plug into please?
The one hdmi I originally was plugged into shows nothing. So I plugged into the hdmi next to the two usb and all I was getting was Linux messages and rebooting messages!
Is the one with the Linux messages where I want to be?
Tech support told me differently.
How long does this take to boot and show up on screen?

#919 56 days ago

Does anyone have the .tar files for 2017 golden tee online. The usb stick is corrupted that i bought from a kijiji person. boooo. or a clone of the USB stick from 2017 GL2017 v12.04.03 760250351 for GT 2015 and older. PM me please.

Tech support is right. Hdmi cable should be connected to the GPU, not the motherboard. The hdmi port near the usb ports is on the motherboard. I usually turn on the machine and wait 5-10 minutes before turning on the TV. I recommend that you try a different TV and also hdmi cable just to rule them out.

Ok , I tried another tv and still nothing
Tech was saying that the video card is bad or needs to be reseated. Unfortunately they don’t want me to open the brand new machine and void warranty so, I have to wait for a full computer swap out from distributor!
That may take another week .
IT gave me a service number to give to distributor? Oh well I’m not mountingvthe new 55” tv until this is all resolved. Thank you for your help

#922 55 days ago

Just open the GD machine. It's just a computer in there. Nothing special. Nothing inside that box costs more than $100 to replace. Effin' warranties.

I understand it’s probably a video card that needs to be reseated but , I just got it and the tech Dept suggested to go this route to avoid any issues.
Didn’t want to have to go through that .
So , today I coordinated with incredible technologies and distributor .
A new unit etc will be overnighted!
I guess I should start mounting the new 55” tv.its probably going to be too big.
I’ll be roughly 4 feet from it

#925 55 days ago

It won’t be. I’m about 2.5 feet from a 50” (my mount pulls away from the wall) and I could go bigger.

The bigger the better.

Ok thank you !
I mounted it last night. Now I’m anxiously waiting for the replacement computer.

All set up and working great!!
They swapped out the bad computer overnight! Great customer service!
Looks great in the basement.
Can anyone tell what device you’re using to connect online wirelessly?
Thank you

Not easily. Different computer systems.

#930 47 days ago

Thanks, wasn't sure, I have a 2013 that I updated to 2019. Came across a nice 2005, that I guess I'll pass on.

Im using a Tplink wireless extender. Works great. Just plug into wall set it up to your wireless then run ethernet to the computer to the extender. Done and done.

That would be 14-15 years between computer systems / platforms. I wonder if Goldentee 2020 will be on a new platform with upgraded graphics considering the current platform has been in use for over a decade.

Yes, that is the night hawk system. Can be updated to 2019. All parts are available and affordable.

It has a 4 hard drive selector and you can switch between:
- GoldenTee 2019
- Silverstrike Bowling
- Powerputt MiniGolf
- Target Toss Pro

Looks great! With the switcher, do you need 4 complete nighthawk systems or does it just switch the hard drive and CID?

How do you like your heads up Poker? Was thinking about buying one.

Ummmm thank you? Lol, he’s a good dude. He also really helped me out with getting one of my Megatouchs working as well. I’m just glad to have fun games for my friends to enjoy.

Check with your dist (when you find one) about the free 2020 upgrade when you buy a 2019. Usually later in the summer they will offer that deal.....

2020 Home Edition will be available Mid-November, if the prior years are any gauge to go on.

There's no reason to wait - 2019 is fantastic, and well worth the $$ to upgrade. Real Time Rivals is a fantastic addition to the game-play.

The free upgrade hasn't been offered by I.T. in a very long time. Not sure about distributors, however.

I never said IT gave the free upgrade.... ive seen that offered by the distributors . Of course you'd have to negotiate that into your deal, but usually with late 'season' purchases, the dist will offer 2020 upgrade with NIB purchase.

For a lot more info-go to to the GT FB page.
Ask about a HE purchase and post about wanting to purchase one. Im sure youll get a lot of speedy replies

Just got word 2017 units will now get a free 2018 upgrade for any unit sold as of 8/1 (New only)
Also I will have to delete my posting above with the discount pricing as of 8/15.. Golden Tee is instituting a MAP pricing on the GTG Home
