THE MOST POPULAR USER CREATED COURSES
It is almost three months since The Golf Club was released so what better time than now to take a look at the top ten most popular user created courses across all three platforms. We filtered out the swag holes, the 2km drives and the guaranteed hole in one ‘courses’ so that only true golf courses would show up. Here’s how things currently look:

All ten courses in the chart appear in the ‘Suggested’ course list within the game which clearly points to placement on that list being very effective when it comes to visibility for members. One thing to note here for course designers, please name your courses without referring to official organizations or courses. If the names contain real world licensed entities then, unfortunately, they can’t appear in our suggested list. We just added a couple more great courses to the list and would have added two others if they had been named differently.
All ten are also all 18 hole courses so The Golf Club members seem to like their traditional rounds rather than the quicker 9 hole versions but perhaps this also points to the speed of play being very favourable over previous golf games. After all, a full 18 usually only takes around 25 minutes to half an hour, even if you stop to think about each shot.
Another feature of this top ten is that the two most played user created courses, both of which have pretty much triple the number of plays as the third placed course, boast an easy skill level. This is reflected in the official courses when it comes to the most played. Is this indicative of the majority of users finding the game quite challenging or does it point to members padding their scores? Whichever it is it pushed us to deliver another easy course, in Black Brook Golf Course, and a medium skill level course, Flathead County Golf Club, with the last feature update. These are being played at a rapid rate to date.
