The Golf Club Hits The VR Links On The HTC Vive

by Matthew Kato on Oct 05, 2016 at 06:10 AM

HB Studios is bringing The Golf Club to the HTC Vive by the end of the year, and along with it comes the existing title's over 130,000 golf courses created by the developer and the community.

The game uses a single controller as your club (which also interacts with the environment), and also introduces the ability to analyze your shots and view hole information with an in-game virtual smartwatch.

While the VR title hosts the courses created from users so far, it does not allow you to make your own courses like the original Golf Club game.

No price or specific release date have been announced yet for the title.

Our Take
While The Golf Club VR is a separate release from either the original Golf Club or the forthcoming Golf Club 2, It will be interesting to see as time goes on and if VR sticks around, if it is integrated into the main franchise titles. This is currently not common, as most of the VR offerings are standalone releases.
