In what I think is great news, HB Studios, the makers of The Golf Club and The Golf Club 2 have picked up the PGA Tour license to be able to use real tournaments and courses.
Through a licensing agreement with Canadian developer HB Studios, the career mode in “The Golf Club 2019” takes a player on an authentic journey through Q-School, the Web.com Tour and a 32-tournament PGA TOUR season, including the FedExCup Playoffs, to become the FedExCup Champion. As players progress and complete challenges, they will attract sponsors who will offer rewards for continued success.
Launching in August, “The Golf Club 2019” will feature six precise replicas of renowned TPC courses: Summerlin, Scottsdale, Sawgrass, Southwind, Deere Run, and Boston. The PGA TOUR and HB Studios will continue to support the golf videogame community into the future by adding authentic tournament courses and ensuring the best possible play experience for fans of the sport.

EA hasn’t made a golf game since the poorly received Rory McIlroy PGA Tour in 2015. This game will also be pulled from the digital marketplace over the next month since the license has changed hands as well.
