The Golf Club is the next generation golf simulation. Stunning visual presentation and outstanding gameplay are to be expected but what really takes The Golf Club into the next generation is the procedural generation of courses and depth of social interaction. The Course Creator can generate a brand new course in seconds which can be shared and played immediately online with friends and other gamers across the world. There are also full editing capabilities for courses, Tournaments and Tours. Challenge your friends on a new or existing course in real time or try to beat their best recorded round. Add to this a myriad of stat tracking and personal bests of friends and rivals to beat, notifications, challenges and social media integration and you truly have a golf club worth joining.
Next Gen Graphics System
The graphics system is a high resolution and high performance one that allows the user to move in real-time around the course in screen resolutions up to 4K Ultra HD. This is in strong contrast to all other systems that only show a static view. The graphics system is actually like a continuous movie. e.g. If, at any time during the game you want to see what lies behind a hill, you can simply navigate the virtual camera to go and have a look. Course fly-overs and multiple simultaneous views are all standard features. The user can even set the virtual view camera to be in the ball itself so that he/she may fly with the ball along its trajectory in real time.
Realistic ball flight trajectory, bounce and roll including hooks, slices, pushes, pulls, fades and draws or any combination thereof, i.e. pushed hooks, pulled slices etc. plus wind factors (strength and direction) are also taken into account. When chipping and putting, the ball will follow the contour of the surface and its path and speed will be influenced accordingly. Also, the flight trajectories of missed shots are shown i.e. topped or fat shots, skied and shanked etc. The flight trajectory calculation routines use proven mathematical formulas that use all the parameters of the clubface at impact with the ball together with the ball's initial flight angles and velocities.
No loading times between holes means you are straight back on the Tee after sinking your putt on the previous green. Also, minimal loading times into a new course make for a refreshing change to your typical golf simulator.
No more getting bored of the courses given to you by the developer. With four clicks you can generate a unique course never seen before that’s ready to play.
With four clicks of a button from the main menu the game will generate for you a never been played before course. The variation is infinite!
If you want to tailor the courses a little more there are high-level options available to you. Examples of these are the number of holes, par distribution, fairway width, number of bunkers, green size, green slope and rough coverage.
EDIT AND CREATE YOUR OWN COURSES
The editor gives you the ability of create from scratch or mould anything on the course. You can alter the terrain, move tees, move greens, move holes, delete holes, add holes, bunkers, rivers, ponds, trees, foliage, buildings, animals and other objects.
LARGE SELECTION OF PRE-DESIGNED COURSES SHIPPING WITH THE GAME
Courses for all skill levels and utilizing the best of creative talents will ship with the game. They can be played individually but will also make up the tournament itinerary for the pre-designed Tour that also comes with the game.
