MGM Grand introduce skill-based interactive golf suite
By Nicole Abbott
MGM Grand has recently opening its new skill-based interactive VIP golf gaming suite, Golfstream, in the new 12,000-square-foot Level Up area.

The Golfstream suite includes a golf simulator and high-tech putting surface along with a VIP lounge.

The putting surface provides lasers to either aid the players or create fun putting competitions, and also allows players to automatically alter the reads of putts. The suite comes with a caddie, which assists with the operation of the game while also offering guests food and beverages.

The casino advertises the suite as a "first-of-its-kind golf experience uses augmented reality and laser guidance to take you through a series of fast-paced mini-challenges in a new approach to skill-based contests."

Boasted as the world’s first indoor laser golf course and private lounge, Golfstream joins other non-traditional casino games Frogger, Connect Four and Giant Pac-Man on MGMs casino floor to a draw in a younger demographic.

The Golfstream Suite is available to rent for $75 per hour during off-peak hours, and $175 per hour during peak periods.
