The Golf Club games deliver an authentic, realistic experience coupled with a powerful and comprehensive award-winning course designer which allows players to create brand new courses and share them cross-platform with others.

The Golf Club 2019 is this year’s sequel to The Golf Club 2 and comes with a whole host of new content and features across all aspects of the game, from single player to online play and the award-winning course designer, making it the deepest and most comprehensive golf game yet.

The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA TOUR will feature six precise replicas of renowned TPC courses: Summerlin, Scottsdale, Sawgrass, Southwind, Deere Run and Boston. The PGA TOUR and HB Studios will continue to support the golf videogame community into the future by adding authentic tournament courses and ensuring the best possible play experience for fans of the sport.

For the first time in the history of the franchise, this year's iteration of the golf game will include commentary from a professional, world renowned broadcaster.

Australian Luke Elvy will add supporting commentary to the game's all-new PGA TOUR Career Mode, utilising all his expertise from his 20 years of experience commentating for the likes of CBS and Sky Sports.

Luke Elvy is a veteran broadcaster of almost 20 years. The Australian started in media in 1994 as a cadet reporter for The Sydney Morning Herald and moved across to Television in 2000 to coincide with the Sydney Olympics. After a decade with Fox Sports, Luke became the front man for golf where he anchored Australia’s biggest events alongside Ian Baker-Finch. A few years after he made the transition to the PGA TOUR where he commentates on between 15-20 events annually with CBS, Sports, Sky Sports, PGA TOUR LIVE & Radio.
