This powerful tool enables the user to add general terrain, heavy rough, light rough, fairways and greens anywhere in the editable environment. In the process of creating this tool we also made some other useful enhancements such as being able to edit generated bunkers and create isolated tees. Part One demonstrates how you can add the surfaces to create a custom fairway path.

UPDATE: Video #2 is online as well.

This is going to go a long way towards getting rid of the "generic" look that finds its way into most of TGC courses! I understand that part two of this video will be up later today.

Cool. Looking forward to this on Xbox One. Hopefully it's only a few weeks away.

i am not complaining in the least and am more than psyched to have a next gen golf sim but how did they manage to price the game at only 35 or 40 bucks? It sounds like a full featured title and than some, just expected the regular price.

Maybe to compete since it is in fact a golf game, and to get people who only know of the Tiger Woods games to try this one.

WOW, EA and 2K need to take notes on customization in sports video games.

Because the game has to sell for there to be any future versions.

My guess is they're willing to go after less of a profit margin in order to garner interest. I seriously doubt any future iteration of the game would continue to come with that same price.

Remember, golf games and fans are really in a niche market.

One thing that I didn't see in the videos, but I want/need is a water surface/brush...

This is shaping up to be the GREATEST customizable game EVER!

My only concern is how much I'm actually going to be playing the courses rather than creating them.

Also its only having a digital release as of now.

Most of the money will go directly to them. I think by supporting this game you will create incentive for more indie developers to chase a AAA style Sim in other sports titles.

There was an arcade title on 360 called Avatar Golf that had a course designer. I spent a lot of hours sketching out ideas on paper and then implementing them into the game. The Golf Club seems a lot more in depth than that was, so I'm really excited to try it out.

I remember that game, never played it.

One thing I haven't seen mentioned is the option to make a Pitch-n-putt type courses like the Par 3 Masters course in the other golf game.

Really excited...

I might not understand fully by pitch-n-putt type courses, but you can make a par 3 only course like Tiger Woods had.

Whoa, that just reminded me...
We have an 18 hole natural grass putting course. Definitely making that.
(my favorite hole is a 200+ ft par 4, pretty good dogleg right to left complete with bunker on the left side if you try to cut the corner lol)
