E3 2014: The Golf Club Goes for the Green on PS4 This Summer

Posted by Sammy Barker

Fore the win

No next-gen console is complete without a golf simulation to flex its grass rendering muscles with. Fortunately, with EA Sports seemingly taking a year off, HB Studios’ extremely attractive The Golf Club looks set to fill that hole [Pun absolutely intended – Ed] on the PlayStation 4 this summer. The title will be on display at the PlayStation Booth during next week’s E3, so expect to see plenty more footage over the coming days.

For those of you that have spent the past few months sipping Leffe at your local clubhouse, the title aims to fuse LittleBigPlanet with the popular open-air sport, allowing you to create your own courses and share them online. If you’re not in the mood for a little landscape architecture, then the title will ship with 20 pre-made courses, as well as a bunch of official tours and tournaments for you to complete.

Elsewhere, one of the release's biggest features is its inclusion of ‘ghost balls’. Similarly to games like Trials Fusion, this will allow you to see your friends’ shots as you play, allowing you to compete against them without them necessarily being online at the same time. This actually sounds like a really well made package, and, aside from some janky animations, appears to look the part, too. Are you tempted to tee off this summer? Hit a nice shot in the comments section below.

Been following this for a few months now. The development team have really listened to their community and made lots of positive changes in the last month. Looks like they're making a big effort to please newbies and hardcore players so I can't wait for this to become available! Still some work to do on various issues such as ball roll and the fact you can 90% of the time get from tee to green easily, but still.....looking forward to it

@bman2112 I played I think it was PGA 13 or something of that name and always on the hardest setting, ridiculously difficult to master, maybe a little too difficult at times.

As an avid golfer I'm pumped about a next gen golf game. I love the idea of designing my own course so I can't wait to try to make my masterpiece

Already they have well into the thousands courses that have been made by players. Obviously some are rubbish but they're putting in a system that means you can choose the best ones. I really wish them luck in this. Ea sports have been terrible to their fanbase over the last 2yrs when it comes to the TW games (and possibly other games). I want The golf club to succeed and the developers are most importantly listening to the customers right now.
