Description: The Golf Club VR is built off the foundation laid by HB Studios’ original award winning game released in 2014, The Golf Club, taking advantage of the original game’s stunning visual presentation and over 130,000, two kilometer² procedurally and user-generated courses. The Golf Club VR will allow you to enjoy your round of golf like never before. With the HTC Vive room-scale capabilities, users have the opportunity to play golf from the comfort of their home all while having complete control over their experience. Choose the right club for every situation from your interactive golf bag. Plan how you want to attack each hole with your yardage booklet and receive on-the-fly information for each shot from your golf watch, or just simply explore the vast landscape around you.

Review: There are a few good golf games for our VR headsets these days and I would count ‘The Golf Club VR’ as one of the better ones. It’s not like Tiger Woods PGA good, but its still a pretty great looking golf game with quite a lot of options. But it is the playability that wins here and the swinging mechanism feels awesome in VR. While it does lack any multiplayer options you will still have a great time on your own. Sadly it is not flawless and some things will frustrate you. While graphically it is OK, the lack of smaller details and some sound effects really break the immersion of the game. But it is the £7.19 price for the basic game that really kills off my recommendation of it. Or you can have the design features for £24.90! There is just no way to justify that asking price and I certainly wouldn’t pay any more than a fiver for this. But it is worth picking up I promise.
