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.

Обожаю гольф, поэтому взял сразу, как только увидел (еще в раннем доступе).
Но ожидал большего. Помните Tiger Woods PGA Tour?
ЕМНИП последняя удачная была где-то 2005 вроде... Так вот эта уступает ей во всем!
Мое мнение - ребята очень поторопились с релизом. Потенциально игра неплохая, но ее еще пилить, пилить и пилить.
Управление не отлажено - чувствительность регулировать нельзя, а выставленная - просто чудовищна, рабочий ход мышки где-то порядка 5 миллиметров. Отдельного упоминания достойна фирменная, судя по всему, фишка: движения гольфиста отстают от движения джойстика/мышки на секунду-полторы, что здорово тренирует Вашу нервную систему.
Режим обучения/тренировки отсутствует как класс, поэтому все Ваши потуги разобраться с "интуитивно понятным управлением" прямиком пишутся в вашу статистику. Так что любителям похвалиться красивой статой - просьба не беспокоиться.
Вам нравились в Тайер Вудсе такие вещи как режим карьеры, прокачка персонажа, инвентарь? Так вот, здесь этого нет и впомине. Равно как и внятных ИГРОВЫХ достижений ("сыграть партию с другом" к игровым достижениям отнести трудно). В общем, повторюсь, до десятилетней давности "Тайгер Вудса" - этой игре, к моему великому сожалению, как до луны.
Зато есть встроенная социальная сеть, что по нынешним временам несомненно чертовски круто...
Сохраненки делаются где-то в облаке, а сетевой код написан людьми свято уверенными, что сеть работает везде, всегда и бесперебойно, поэтому партии лучше не откладывать... не факт, что сможете продолжить с того места, где остановились, а не десяток лунок "тому обратно".
Регулярные глухие зависания при выходе из игры похоже имеют ту же природу.
Ну и кроме того еще куча не доведенных до ума мелочей, ничего кроме раздражения не вызывающих. Пожалуй единственное, в чем это творение опрежает упомянутого "Тайгера
Вудса" - это графика. Но при этом требования к железу - совершенно неадекватные, ну а на низких настройках игра уступает "конкуренту" десятилетней давности и в этом компоненте.
Оптимизация? Не, не слышали...

Возможно разработчики и доведут рано или поздно ее до ума, но почему-то очень сильно в этом сомневаюсь ((
А "на момент сейчас" - ей красная цена рублей 100, не больше.

P.S. Ну и да, "портировано с приставки" - торчит изо всех щелей...

I was going to write up an elegant summary of the game but honestly it doesn't need it. The game is easily the best golf sim I've played. The fact it has an unblievable course creator just puts it over the top. It's intuitive, fun and beautiful. You can play your course as your build it to ensure its exactly what you wanted. From placing objects such as buildings, trees, signs to sculpting a simple sand trap, you'll be in love with the ease at which it's all done.

Ontop of that the game is gorgeous to look at, runs great and simply the best representation of golf you can find on PC. With an interesting multiplayer aspect you can challenge your friends or take on their ghost ball of their best score.

So if you like golf, or golf creation and horribly written reviews, you should get this game.

From what I have played so far, this might be one of the best golf games ever made and it is nice to finally see a game like this on Steam.

The golf course creation tool is amazing. You are able to create and customize your own golf course - It can be fully randomly generated or you can hand craft all of the holes, bunkers, trees, hills, anything you could think of, and you can share it to the public.

As it is currently Early Access some game modes are not available as of yet, such as Tour's and Tournaments (These have a coming soon sign). Stat tracking is also on the way.

As far as I can see, there is no online multiplayer, however you do get to play against other players ghosts and The Golf Club supports local Multiplayer.

Graphics wise - Very good, very nice looking game.

Audio is also nice and the commentary that is in the game is a little different from games such as EA's Tiger Woods games, and that is a nice change.

The Golf Club is a fun and rewarding game for golfers and those with a creative flair.

Gameplay leans toward a simulator with all players on equal footing, there are no upgrades, perks and at this stage limited customisation of your avatar.

Golfers can chose to play alone against the course, against ghost balls or in turn based multiplayer with online friends or local co-op.

The swing mechanic feels great with a controller and is the closest I have ever felt to being on an actual golf course.

The course creator is the one feature that makes the game truly special, its so easy to lose countless hours realizing your vision and sharing it with others across all platforms.

The heart and soul of the game though is the community with a very active forum at HB's website. Courses are reviewed, WIPs discussed and HB's team are always popping by for a chat, and answering any questions you may have.

HB have promised continued development of the game beyond launch and I'm looking forward to see what they come up with next.

If you are a keen golfer its well worth your time and money.
