The Golf Club 2019
Top Critic Average
The gameplay, which you grow into the more you play, is more satisfying than the PGA Tour itself
With a new PGA Tour license, difficult but fair controls, and a pleasing presentation, The Golf Club 2019 is a straight shot down the fairway.
For the time being, The Golf Club 2019 finishes in the middle of the pack. It had such promise and potential but duffs it too many times on what should be easy shots. Until HB Studios goes back and fixes its swing issues, give this a pass.
For golf fans, The Golf Club 2019 featuring PGA Tour should be an essential purchase. It's the refinement of all of HB Studios previous work, and while the series may have started out as an indie underdog it now feels like a AAA sports franchise.
Despite the arrival of the PGA license, we feel that it is still very untapped.

The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA Tour's foundations are built upon a rock-solid simulation, with tight swinging and tough greens making for a stern challenge that's difficult but fair. The addition of licensed courses means that this year's game has a much better campaign, but it doesn't feel like HB Studios has had quite enough time to capture the sense of occasion that real TPC events can have. As such, with 2K Sports now also on board as publisher, we reckon it's the next instalment that's really going to impress. The building blocks are all in place, though, and if you're in need of a serious golf game on your PS4 right now, then this edition very much finds the green.

The Golf Club 2019 is a very good golf game, which shines in particular by its game system both realistic and rewarding. It does not hustle the codes, but offers an infinite renewal, thanks to its system of procedural generation in addition to the official courses of the PGA Tour. The loading times also benefits from a particular optimization and are non-existent during play, which favors concentration.

From your first tee to your umpteenth hole, The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA Tour really nails that heart-in-mouth feeling of swinging your club like a pro.
Without question, The Golf Club 2019 has received a large credibility injection thanks to the involvement of the PGA Tour. Sadly, this feels like a half-implemented crossover that doesn't utilize the license to anywhere near its full potential. Hitting the course is as gratifying as it's ever been, but the end product feels like it needed another trip to the driving range before its tee time. Like a 320-yard drive on a par 5, it's a fantastic starting point, but still well short of the flag.
