making some of the most critically acclaimed sport franchises on the EA SPORTS
label, HB Studios has developed the first golf title to bring procedurally
generated courses to next gen console. The Golf Club is a highly realistic game
that allows players to fully customize their golfing experience by creating and
playing the course of their dreams with the built-in Greg Norman Course
"We are incredibly excited to give golf fans the game they've always wanted,"
said Anthony Kyne, Producer at HB Studios. "No other golf game provides players
with this level of customization and sophistication in course design on PC and
next generation consoles. We've worked extremely hard to get The Golf Club ready
for launch, so it's really rewarding to officially announce the launch date and
share that with our fans."
The Golf Club is a fully featured golfing experience where users can play
against friends' and rivals' best rounds in turn-based/asynchronous competition
modes enhanced by cloud-based technology. The game supports Tours & Tournaments,
stroke play, match play, and 4-ball.
The Golf Club's Greg Norman Course Designer allows players to build an unlimited
number of golf courses, which can then be shared and played with friends online.
New courses can be generated in a matter of seconds by selecting a theme,
terrain features, and number of holes. Players can then enjoy a full suite of
editing tools from changing the time of day to placing hazards and objects to
create the ultimate golf challenge. Players can also discover new courses built
by friends and the community by filtering through rank and difficulty, as well
as interact with new members of The Golf Club through the Message Center.
The game is due for worldwide release on Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft Xbox One
and PC Windows platforms priced $34.99.
The Golf Club comes complete with three modes: stroke play, match play and
4-ball, no loading times between holes, and the course designer feature.
