The Golf Club Collector’s Edition Swings into Stores Today Announces Maximum Games

Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — The Golf Club Collector’s Edition hits a hole in one with gamers today who have eagerly awaited the award-winning title’s new installment. With a new Season Mode featuring five complete Tour levels, a brand new Tropical Theme to add to the eight existing environments, and a gorgeous collectible e-book with course design insights from expert golfers, the game brings an exquisitely detailed and realistic golfing experience to console. The Golf Club Collector’s Edition is available now for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PC.

In The Golf Club Collector’s Edition, players have a comprehensive ‘Greg Norman Course Designer’ tool that enables the creation of brand new courses from start to finish, a giant library of already-created golf courses to play, and now an exciting Season Mode to take players through a series of tournaments in 5 Tour levels during which they may progress from amateur to pro status.

“Gamers want objective-based gameplay,” said Luke Shelnutt, producer at Maximum Games. “A realistic sim is fantastic, but at the end of the day players want to feel like they are striving to reach goals, and the new Season Mode fulfills that need perfectly.”

The new Tropical Theme also lends a fun addition to the game, as players can now select this backdrop in the ‘Greg Norman Course Designer’. Joining the eight other existing themes (Alpine, Rural, Links, Desert, Harvest, Boreal, Autumn, and Countryside), the new Tropical Theme puts a lush, colorful spin on player-created golf courses.

The Golf Club Collector’s Edition also boasts an exclusive collectible e-book with documented stories, plus beautiful art and photographs of famous golf links and expert players, encapsulated in over 30 pages of writings and imagery that is only available with this version of the game.

“We are thrilled to have put this unique collectible together,” said Diane Fornasier, VP of Marketing at Maximum Games. “Fans of the sport will gain some interesting insight about golf course design with St. Andrews featured as the epitome of legendary courses. In addition, video gamers will get an understanding of how the ‘Greg Norman Course Designer’ evolved from a gaming tool to one that is being used to create some of the most prestigious golf courses in the world.”
