If you're planning to attend a PGA Tour World Golf Championships event in the near future, you might get a chance to try playing golf in an otherworldly environment.

Dell announced that is has created a virtual reality experience that allows you to feel like you're playing golf on the moon, a la Apollo 14's Alan Shepard, who famously took an unearthly swing in 1971.

The game is called Lunar Golf: The Future of Golf Experience. Dell collaborated with HTC Vive and VR company Oculus Rift to put together the headset-driven encounter, which unfolds inside an inflatable dome. Players take a ride in a lunar rover, choose a golf club, and take a swing into space.
