Developer Perfect Golf, in partnership with golf legend Jack Nicklaus, launched a new PC golf game on Steam.
This is not a licensed golf game, but, one real world course, Bethesda Country Club, is available from the store.
In terms of gameplay, Perfect Golf offers 20 different modes, including stroke, match, and skins, while team-based variants like foursomes, better ball, and scramble are also included. The developers plan to add functionality to the game at a later date allowing people to create their own modes and share them.
The game has a lineup of twelve initial courses that are “georeferenced” so that the sun will rise and set in the appropriate place and time depending on the day. Multiplayer is also included.
Gamers can also make use of the Nicklaus Design Course Forge, which is the same toolsuite that Nicklaus’ Nicklaus Design team uses to make real-world courses. This feature, however, is not included with the version of Perfect Golf available today, but is instead coming later.
