Anniversary in-game events

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 majestic 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 (Mar 25-28 and Apr 2-4, 2022). Players that complete the challenge will be rewarded with 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 (Mar 26-28, Mar 28-30, and Apr 1-4, 2022). 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,” said Yaron Leyvand, Executive Vice President, Games at 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.”
