About This Game

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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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


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.

This is a great golf game. There are many golf games out there, however they lack in the PC world. The overall feel of this game -- as far as the gameplay and layout of the game goes -- is really quite astonishing. Unlike a lot of games, with this game you have to take everything into account from the wind, speed of the fairways/greens, slope of the holes, etc. It really is a very neurotic game and you have to be smart how you play it. On a difficulty perspective, this game is very challenging. It takes lots of practice on each course to master it. It's almost like actually golfing where you have to take notes, make adjustments, and eat it when you fail. I highly recommend getting this game if you're an avid golf fan like I am.

Me and Golf games: I'm a filthy casual, in terms of playing golf games.

Review: Worth it, buy it.
Top-quality in graphics, animations, and a lovely commentary. The gameplay is more in-depth than your average "click on the senter of the bar for maximum goal chance" although the controls might need work but sufficiant and playable =)

Great Golf Game. Graphics are very nice and the swing mechanics seem good. Only problem I have is cant get 100% Power on my swings. Mostly 86 to 92. That kinda sucks but other than that, great game.

The only good golf game on steam. Would love an EA tiger woods (or as it is known a rory mac now) game for the PC, but this will do. Putting is hard, needs a preview mode and sadly there is no computer bots to play against but if you want a multiplayer golf game to play at home with your mates or online I recommend it. However, it does get a bit lonely by yourself, and would like a ball spin element to it too.

I currently have purchased this game 3 different times for myself. The first time was on Xbox One. Loved it so much I had to purchase it for my Playstation 4. Played the game countless times. As I've continued gaming on the PC I purchased it through steam and still continue to play this game. If I had to buy it again I would without question. This isn't some ♥♥♥♥♥♥ unrealistic game like the tiger woods franchise. This is as simulated as it gets to real golf and I love it. If you want to control the golf ball in mid air, don't buy this game. If you want the feel of the real thing, spend the little money and enjoy.
