Join us at 2pm today, Monday 22nd June for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, when we’ll be learning all about the phenomenon of Second Life golf!
There are many sports in Second Life that residents can enjoy alone or with friends, and Second Life 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!
This will be a fun show so so so do join us, at 2pm today!
Or – if you can’t attend in person – tune in to the web at 2pm SLT on Monday for a showing on SLartist or on Treet – or catch it later in the week on our shows page on the Treet.tv web site at http://treet.tv/shows/designingworlds, on the SLArtist.com channel, the Aview TV Designing Worlds channel – or on the Designing Worlds blog.
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.
