FEATURE UPDATE 2

FEATURE UPDATE 2 Feature Update 2
hbdeveloper

We are delighted to announce that Feature Update 2 is now available. It is the second update for The Golf Club and we hope all the members out there enjoy what it brings to the game. We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved so far and this update only serves to enhance that feeling within the studio. We have confidence that the Handicap System will add a positive new dimension to the game and for those that aren’t too keen on Handicaps there is always the option to play rounds and tournaments and follow leaderboards that don’t involve the handicap system. We are also really pleased with the Countryside Theme and can’t wait to see what you can create with it. And this is all for free!

 

Main Contents
  • New Theme – Countryside
  • Handicap System
  • New Game Mode – Stableford
  • Multi-plant tool in Greg Norman Course Designer
  • Optimization on all Platforms
  • Expanded Commentary
  • Ability to change Tee Box styles and colours
  • New Official Course – Flin Flon Golf Club
  • New Official Course – Great Tottington Golf Club
  • New Official Tournaments for all handicap levels – some available immediately, most progressively over the holidays.
  • New Official Tours for different handicap levels – to be released over the holiday period.
  • Colourful plants and shrubs added to Greg Norman Course Designer.

 

And here are the majority of the bugs we fixed. Please excuse the wording, terminology or any unprofessional text but there isn’t a lot of formality when the QA and Dev Teams send notes to each other in the heat of the battle. We thought you’d enjoy taking a look nonetheless.
