How Golf Is Using Video Games To Connect With Kids

The PGA JR. League has launched Safari Par-Tee, a new augmented reality mobile gaming platform available on iOS and Android. The game allows young golfers to turn their physical surroundings into a digital putting green by using their smartphones to scan the environment. The app was developed by Trigger using Niantic’s Lightship kit for AR apps.

Safari Par-Tee features a number of multiplayer options that allow players to match with other local users in real-time or even connect with specific players over Wi-Fi. Players can then hold communal scoring contests with multiple rounds and different clubs.

And, for those who are new to the game, Safari Par-Tee includes tutorials, which introduce them to the fundamentals of the game as well as the various styles of play.
