I have to say that I am really looking forward to Boss Golf. It is a golf course management tycoon type of game, and if it is anything like Sid Meier’s SimGolf (featured here), it will be a one worth playing. The game is built on three gameplay features: Build, Manage, and Play. There is a multiplayer game mode planned as well so you can show your friends “who’s the real Golf Tycoon!” Boss Golf is slated to be released in February of 2019 for early access on Steam.

Tee Time Golf (VR)
Here is another entry into the VR golf video game list! Tee Time Golf VR has a more “fun” gameplay to it compared to the more professional gameplay found in The Golf Club VR. It has a much more casual gameplay style if you are looking just to get in and have some fun golfing. You will still need skill and technique to master Tee Time Golf VR, but it is very accessible and super fun when playing with friends.

Here is an oddball of a golf game, but it still looks like a great play. Arcane Golf is a miniature golf game in a fantasy world filled with “dungeons, dangers, gems, and geometry.” Even though this game is the oddball on our list, it is getting very positive reviews on Steam complementing it on its level design and engaging pixel art, sound, and gameplay. This little indie minigolf style adventure game may just be one worth picking up and playing!

Everyday Golf VR
And here is one more VR golf video game for the list. Everyday Golf VR has three different game modes including single-player, competitive, and tour mode. The game also includes swing analysis and a lefthanded mode for those lefties out there! However, it is currently getting mixed reviews on Steam. But overall it is being complimented on its easy and frustration-free gameplay, as well as its great graphics.
