We just finished a full shop job on this Tee’d Off pinball machine. This is a great game for golf-lovers, with tons of toys and games within games. Check it out!
Gottlieb came out with Tee’d Off in 1993 and produced around 3,500 games. (IPDB)
Although there’s no official licensing involved, the game does seem to pay homage to a certain golf movie starring Bill Murray that had come out a few years earlier.
With an angry caddy, a trouble-causing gopher, and tons of golf jokes, it’s hard not to think of 1980’s “Caddyshack” while playing this game.
Of course, the game is fun in its own right, with its captive ball spinner in the middle of the playfield, its trick shots, and its great callouts.
We gave this game a full shop job, pulling everything off the playfield to be polished, buffed, washed, tumbled, or otherwise cleaned.
A few playfield and cabinet touchups, and a few special touches, and this game was ready to roll.
Enjoy the game, Ken. Fore!
