Об этой игре

The Golf Club is HB Studios’ next generation golf simulation. Stunning visual presentation and outstanding gameplay are to be expected but what really takes The Golf Club into the next generation is the procedural generation of courses and depth of social interaction. The Course Creator can generate a brand new course in seconds which can be shared and played immediately online with friends and other gamers across the world. There are also full editing capabilities for courses, Tournaments and Tours. Challenge your friends on a new or existing course in real time or try to beat their best recorded round. Add to this a myriad of stat tracking and personal bests of friends and rivals to beat, notifications, challenges and social media integration and you truly have a golf club worth joining.

INTUITIVE CONTROL SYSTEM

We’ve created and fine tuned a swing mechanic that is more about feeling and fluidity above the users’ accuracy of hitting a marker on a power bar. Whilst anyone will be able to pick the controller up and play comfortably, the best players on the global leaderboards will be those with the best feel for the different golf shots and who are able to take into account ball lie, weather and terrain conditions.

INSTANTANEOUS GAMEPLAY


No loading times between holes means you are straight back on the Tee after sinking your putt on the previous green. Also, minimal loading times into a new course make for a refreshing change to your typical console game.

UNLIMITED COURSES


No more getting bored of the courses given to you by the developer. With four clicks you can generate a unique course never seen before that’s ready to play.

GENERATE COURSES


With four clicks of a button from the main menu the game will generate for you a never been played before course. The variation is infinite!

If you want to tailor the courses a little more there are high-level options available to you. Examples of these are the number of holes, par distribution, fairway width, number of bunkers, green size, green slope and rough coverage.

EDIT AND CREATE YOUR OWN COURSES


The editor gives you the ability of create from scratch or mould anything on the course. You can alter the terrain, move tees, move greens, move holes, delete holes, add holes, bunkers, rivers, ponds, trees, foliage, buildings, animals and other objects.

LARGE SELECTION OF PRE-DESIGNED COURSES SHIPPING WITH THE GAME


Courses for all skill levels and utilizing the best of HB’s creative talents will ship with the game. They can be played individually but will also make up the tournament itinerary for the pre-designed Tour that also comes with the game.

LOCAL MULTIPLAYER


Up to four players can play locally. Differentiate yourselves with different character models and clothing and choose between stroke play, match play or fourball.

ONLINE SHARING AND PLAY


Play others creations - work your way through the huge database of user created courses, each rated by other users to help make the decision easy to make.

Share your courses with the World – when you’re happy with your creations you can publish them for the rest of the world to play.

Play against others live or from the past - each round you play on every course is saved Online. Choose from Friends Rounds, Record Rounds or Rivals Rounds (others players close to your ability) to compete against. Their ghost balls and scores will be visible throughout your round giving you the feeling of competition without losing the instantaneous game play. Ghost and live balls can be hidden if so desired either selectively or en masse.

Watch others play the courses you’re on live – through our ball trace system you can see other users from around the world on the course that you are playing live, even if they’re on different holes.

I think if you want a Golf simulator, and have the patience to learn the mechanics of this game and how they work, you will love it. Folks that are looking for an arcade golf game, probably won't like it, and will quit before they give it a chance.

Personally I really like the game. Once you get used to the controls, it "feels" like you really are playing golf. You have to concentrate on each shot, and not every shot is perfect, some are really bad, sometimes you hit it perfect...but thats how it is when you really play. The point is, the feeling you get with the controller, is about like the feeling you would have really swinging the club, from the mental point of view.

I'm not sure of the specs of the reviews I see that say the game is not optimized or runs slow. It runs perfectly fine on my machine and the graphics look beautiful. Multiplayer works great also, a friend and I play together and take turns and it is quite fun.

The only cons I have is that there is no tutorial or practice area that I could find. It would be nice if they at least had a tutorial in game describing the controls, and a driving range that you could click on and practice swings. I think I eventually found this info on their website, but it was hard to find. Also, a bit of advice, if you are using a controller, make sure you have an Xbox based one, not the older D based (Sony) kind.

Final verdict in a nutshell - GREAT game, very much worth it, IF you put the time in to learn it properly.

Great golf sim with a few quirks.

I love this game - play it several times a week with my Dad. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a good solid golf game, but it's certainly not perfect. Probably easiest to sum up with a list of pros and cons:

Pros
  • The core of the game is rock solid and realistic. The feel of the swing, the look of the courses, the physics, and the action of the ball are all great.
  • Fantastic course editor - best I've ever seen in a golf game. You can play courses created by other palyers or generate a fresh new course with just a few clicks. You'll certainly never run out of courses to play. Very satisfying when you put in a good round because you know you earned it. :)
  • Skill is not stat based. If your get better at the game it's because you've learned to play better.
  • Devs are still improving the game. I've been playing since the first day of Early Access and the Devs have been communicating and responding - while still sticking to their gameplan. They haven't fixed all the quirks, but the game has seen steady improvements over the months.

Cons
  • Some machines might struggle with the graphics. Seems to recquire more CPU/GPU power than you might think. Only a few graphics settings to adjust.
  • The swing controls can be hard to learn. I love the controls (I use xbox 360 controller) but some people seem to get frustrated. No option for the old 'three-click' method that is popular in other games. I think this is part of the 'level playing field' that the devs are shooting for. They have worked hard to make the competition skill-based and fair.
  • The interface is sometimes clunky. All the info and controls are there, but sometimes they are not intuitive. Took me a long time to figure out what the two different distances on the putting green were (one is distance to the cup, and the other is the distance to your aiming marker). I still can't figure out how to properly show an instant replay. :)
  • No career mode or similar extra features. The Tiger Woods games were full of all sorts of extras and some people might expect them here. Presentation is somewhat sparse. The voicover/commenter is well done, but there is very little 'juice' or graphical embellishments to spice things up.

For me the pros definitely outweigh the cons. This is one of my most played games of 2014 and I expect it will be in 2015, too.

I've had my eye on this game for quite some time. I picked it up during a sale recently and do not regret it at all.

I'm a former Links player and I've been looking for a simliar experience for quite some time. This game captures that experience. I'm not a big fan of the Tiger Woods gaming experience. The RPG elements and monetization scheme is just not for me.

This game is about skill and consistency. There is a learning curve. You'll be frustrated and challenged. There is no magic win button/skill/purchase. There is just you and your skill. As it should be. Trust me, I'm right up against that learning curve with only a few hours in. Out of the gate, this game feels good. Tons of potential here.

There are pretty consistent updates to the game and content additions. The community is growing and getting stronger. Support this game if you are a fan of games of skill, rather than a vapid pay to win environment.

It isn't without a few bugaboos. Nothing has been a show stopper, up to this point.

On thing that I wish they would add is some sort of visual indicator of your swing.

Brilliant golf sim. Online competition is fantastic and you can custom make your own courses.

I would recommend this to anyone who is a simulation fan and especially to anyone who plays golf.

Disclaimer: I played one round, and intend to play more.
The Good: The commentator is a condascening jackass, game is well made, actually fun to play even if you don't like golf, course editor, heaps of community based features, diverse courses.
The Bad: Keyboard and mouse is extremely difficult and would recommend a controller, minor tearing.
I bought this hoping it was similar to SimGolf, it's not. However it is a solid golf game that is actually quite good fun. If you just want a casual sports game or like golf in general, this will be great.
