The original The Golf Club played a quite good game of videogame golf when it hit consoles and the PC some time ago. It was not perfect by any means, but HB Studios’ first attempt at a realistic golf title was really a great start in a somewhat underrepresented genre these days.
Apparently they’ve been hard at work on the sequel, The Golf Club 2, which looks to improve just about everything found in the original. It’s definitely pretty looking, but there are a number of new features, including new swing mechanics, a proper Career Mode, a better Course Creator, online tournaments and Societies, and more.
At this point, Maximum Games is expecting to release The Golf Club 2 this spring. For now, have a look at the new trailer, screens and the announcement too.

Foooore! Video game publisher Maximum Games, in partnership with developer HB Studios, has today released a brand-new first look trailer for their highly anticipated sports game, The Golf Club 2. Further expanding upon the popular first installment, The Golf Club 2 aims to hit a hole in one with its huge community of players, as well as newcomers to the franchise, when it releases this Spring on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC via Steam.
In this first in-depth look at the game, Maximum Games and HB Studios shed light on the process behind the game?s development, focusing on all-new features that take the game to a whole new level. Now with a progression-based Career Mode, the addition of Societies, and improved Course Creator, The Golf Club 2 replicates a compelling and authentic experience of being on the green. Alongside these giant improvements to the game, The Golf Club 2 scores big with a host of new environments, cutting-edge swing mechanics, limitless customization options and dynamic online tournaments.
Responding to the request of The Golf Club community, the developers have now built out a series of tournaments players must advance through in Career Mode to move up in status. As you progress through your season, your competition grows with you, pushing you to improve your game. Career earnings from each event and season give you the freedom to purchase clothing and accessories for your golfer, along with membership dues to Societies.
Players will now be able to create their own online Society or join a pre-existing one. While you can be part of more than one Society, one of them will be your Primary Membership. You’ll represent your Society in all events you play, climbing your way to the top of Team Leaderboards and upgrading your clubhouse as you progress.
The Course Creator, a signature feature that c is committed to perfecting in each of its titles, also sees vast improvement in this upcoming sequel, with more creative freedom to build the ideal course to suit any player?s style. Fans of the first installment can either start fresh or upgrade a previous masterpiece from The Golf Club. Included in the new additions to the Course Creator are: tournament dressings with media stands, crowd placement, multi-level water features, and more.
