based on their pedigree of shovelware (and I've played their rugby titles) I wouldn't get overly excited just yet.

Am I wrong or does this not actually include any real courses? I think the idea of procedurally generated courses is neat, I think most golf sim fans want replicas of the real places.

That's what it looks like, but the community may come up with good enough approximations.

It's on sale this weekend only for $11.55 on the Xbox One. Might be worth it at that price.

I was pretty gung ho about this release but it just never panned out as a complete golf experience. Some of the courses look nice but it feels very empty and sterile and the gameplay is pretty lousy. Sadly, I still prefer Powerstar Golf for my Xbox One golf fix.

Re: The Golf Club (PS4, Xbox One and PC)

I just bought it from Steam for $17. I like the PC version a lot. I was always a sucker for Links 386 back in the day, and this seems a lot more like that than any of the Tiger Woods games which were all too arcade-y for me.
Hundreds of user-defined courses out there, including real-life courses. Plus a whole tour thing going on at http://www.tgctours.com/. I can see myself wasting a few hours of my life on this until I get bored.

This one completely caught me off guard until I saw a sale for the collector's edition on Amazon ($29.99 right now). Thinking about getting it, is it any good, I'm basically interested in the course editor and hopefully the gameplay is not too difficult (could care less about graphics beyond a certain point).

Re: The Golf Club (PS4, Xbox One and PC)

Small bump one last time even though if it looks like nobody plays this . I did finally get a copy (from Gamestop nevertheless, was only $19.99 used), and played it last night. It's pretty good actually. I mean, I'm horrible (shot an 89 first time out), but I made a couple of nice birdies and once I figure out the finer points of putting and pitching, I'll probably be around par or better on a regular basis. I didn't have time last night to mess with the course editor but there seemed to be PLENTY of courses to play that were created by others. Anyway, if you can find it for $20 like I did, it certainly seems worth it if you are looking for an EA-less golf simulator (and a course editor).

There's a whole tour circuit at http://www.tgctours.com - it certainly encourages me to play more often.
