Tournament Calendar and World Previews
Map 1: – The classic of crispy ties
Premieres October 19 at 3 p.m. PST
Built around a period Georgian clubhouse, this traditional golf course has 18 holes and a lush forest of trees, but is sprinkled with crispy chicken tacos, tomatoes and cheese throughout the course. Make sure you don’t miss the taco cart between the 9th and 10th holes before you finish the last nine.
Map 2: – The Royal Grid
Built inside Nether World, this flamboyant themed restaurant aligns with the Nether aesthetic with its deep burgundy, orange and red hues. Here, the queso flows like water, around a central 18-hole clubhouse, while taco carts heat up.
Map 3: – Cap Carne
Cape Carne propels you into space on a ‘galaxy class’ course with starlit skies, nebulae and supernovae as the backdrop to navigate these tricky obstacles. This is the only menu where the taco cart flanks the first nine serving an out of the ordinary taco carne asada not to be missed.
Map 4: – Guacamole Greens
Guacamole Greens transports you to the Overworld on a course filled with larger-than-life avocados and bowls of guacamole. The winding 18-hole course brings ‘Guac’d Up’ to life via avocado-inspired yellows, greens and browns that begins and ends in a guac-themed clubhouse.
To win prizes, fans must tune in to live Twitch streams. Codes will expire within an hour of the stream ending, while gift cards will be sent via DM Chat directly to lucky fans.
