The Golf Club Swinging for 26th August Launch on PS4

Posted by Sammy Barker

Getting the greenlight

There’s been a serious lack of golf on the PlayStation 4 since launch, but Canadian developer HB Studios is aiming to put an end to that this month. Writing on its official forum, a company spokesperson noted that The Golf Club could putt a place onto Sony’s next-gen machine as soon as 26th August in North America. However, it did stress that this window is subject to change.

“There is a small possibility that the game will be released on the week of 18th August, if Sony’s able to push it through, but the more likely scenario is the week of the 25th August,” the firm explained. “Please understand that this is all predicated on the notion that the second submission goes smoothly. That being said, there is a possibility that things could change – though we all hope not!”

In addition to some pretty impressive visuals, the swing-‘em-up’s headline feature comprises its ability to allow you to create your own courses. Do you think that this title’s going to have a clear shot at the fairway, or are you worried that it could take a tumble into the bunker?

@get2sammyb Ha, literally just googled for a release date on this and your article was top of the Google news search results! Does this have a retail release or is it just digital?

A question of reviews and price. Certainly watching. It is one of the few sporting genres that I enjoy.

Day Zero too! Only digital copy.....but that doesn't bother me too much.

HB Studios have really been proactive with the early access and really listened to the public's feedback. They've made numerous changes and although they still have work to do, it's looking very good and by the time it hits the PS4, it should be a stonkin' game.

For those that want to check out what the game looks like in action, check out TimWilsonUK on youtube, and also check out www.pocketscout.us who has taken the time to rank all the courses that have been generated thus far and also has game footage.

As it's a cross platform release, i believe the courses you find on that site are available day 1!!.

I desperately want this game to be great. I love golf games and this looks really promising with the course editor, but in recent months I've been checking out the PC beta footage on Youtube and there's an awful lot of ugly trees that all look the same that pop-in alarmingly as you play the game. I'm definitely going to wait for the reviews because this could end up a bit naff compared to a polished PGA title. No disc version sounds a bit half baked to me, like the dev isn't confident enough to risk an expensive retail release so it's going the lame cheapo Indie route.
