2K Games and HB Studios entry into the sim golf world has been a good one so far. Just recently we got to play and review The Golf Club 2019 and as a golf sim it’s a really impressive game with a ton of customization, solid gameplay and a PGA tour license. What could make an already good game with that much to offer better? Updates. Everybody loves updates. At the present time The Golf Club 2019 has 32 courses, 6 of them are from the PGA tour itself and with a big update coming this Thursday this game will be getting one more course and more updates in the future. Per their press release The Golf Club 2019 will be adding the Atlantic Beach Country Club which hosts the Web.com TOUR Championship.
