Critic Reviews for The Golf Club

The Golf Club is a fun way to hit the links for golfing purists and would-be course creators.

It may simulate golf to a punishing tee and have a course designer-sized trump card, but until it raises its game elsewhere the PGA Tour series is still the king of the fairway.

The game's fun to play and the course creator will keep you up nights (in a good way), but it lacks a strong carrot to spur you on

Golf returns to the PC with The Golf Club, a rigorous simulation that falls just short of the green.

The Golf Club Collector's Edition is a well-featured and enjoyable game, only held back by the lack of licensed content and performance issues that hamper the fun. The asynchronous multiplayer lends plenty of real-world competition to the proceedings, and the course designer is a powerful tool in the right hands. Its more serious tone may not be to everyone's taste, but the fact that HB Studios has created an indie title that can genuinely contend with EA's monolithic PGA franchise makes it worthy of attention.

[I]f all you need is an excellent golfing engine to use on a functionally-infinite number of courses then The Golf Club is unbeatable.

The Golf Club promises a lot but falls down on its implementation. Golf fans will find a lot to like here, though, with the Designer and the solid gameplay providing an expansive experience. Unfortunately, last-gen visuals and a series of frustrating issues make this a hard game to recommend to all but the golf obsessed.

Those wanting to get away from Tiger Woods' gimmicks will enjoy this, but it's merely functional.
