StarLark, a subsidiary of Zynga, has announced it is celebrating the fourth anniversary of the fantasy-themed mobile golf game “Golf Rival” with multiple upcoming in-game events for players. “Golf Rival” provides mobile golf enthusiasts around the world with player vs. player (PvP) competition filled with moments like long-distance dunk shots and trick shots.  

“We believe ‘Golf Rival’ has hit a hole-in-one with players because it appeals to both golf fans and casual gamers with a competitive, yet fantasy-driven golf experience,” says Henry You, founder and general manager, StarLark. “We want to thank our players for the success we have achieved over the past four years and look forward to adding even more fun to the game through dynamic new content that our team is creating.” 

A “Golf Rival” anniversary event is held each year at the ancient Isle of Goff, a fictional island paradise in the “Golf Rival” world where top competitors come to play. This spring, players will compete in two events held in an area of the island previously hidden by clouds – the new Cloud “Sea Golf” Course that overlooks the ocean. 

  • Sky Walker Challenge: A 12-round PvP challenge on the Cloud Sea course that will run over two weekends (March 25-28 and April 2-4). Players who complete the challenge will be awarded ultimate chest prizes that contain a variety of coins, gems, club cards, golf balls and legendary clubs. 

  • Cloud Nine Tournament: For players who prefer a solo challenge, Cloud Sea will also be open for an 18-hole standalone event (March 26-28, March 28-30, and April 1-4). In the contest, golfers can try to master the course to achieve new personal best records and earn special prizes. 

“I never fail to be amazed by the passion and dedication the ‘Golf Rival ‘team brings every day,” says Yaron Leyvand, executive vice president, games, Zynga. “They continuously engage mobile golfers worldwide by creating over-the-top fantasy golf experiences that consistently raise the quality bar and surprise and delight our players with each new content drop.”
