The latest episode of Designing Worlds – when we’ll be learning all about the phenomenon of Second Life golf – is now on the web.
There are many sports in Second Life that residents can enjoy alone or with friends, and Second Life golf is one of them. To play well requires a mixture of knowledge, skill … and perhaps a little luck as well. There are a number of courses scattered around Second Life, some very realistic and some offering more unexpected hazards (volcanoes, panthers for example). Saffia is a great fan – although Elrik had never played before this show. And so Saffia decided to show him why Second Life golf is such fun!
In the show we talk to CrowleyCorp, Designer of Crowley Corp Golf System (in other words, the clubs that we play with) and also owner of the Rolling Hills Golf Course who explains how the system works (and why it is so popular with golfers across Second Life). Then we visit LittleOneSusan Teardrop, Owner of Getting set at Angel Manor golf course, and she explains how she designs her course, incorporating elements of the the courses she has played – and ones she has loved. Sinally, we meet up with Kaya Angel, Owner of Angel Manor Estate, which we visited on a recent show, and which has its own golf course. Angel Manor’s six hole course is an excellent one for learning how to play golf (and for having a short game with friends) and Elrik finally gets a chance to try out what he has learned!
Please note: we have not verified your personal safety on these last two courses – but we can’t wait to try them out!
Tombstone Arizona Golf Club (cowboy golf at its finest)
Al Raqis Golf Course (golf with a scifi twist)
Please note: Most of these courses offer rental clubs. Some will require you to join a group in order to be able to rezz.
