The Golf Club 2019, which is the third entry in the series and the first with the official PGA Tour license, is free on Xbox Live right now. It’s free on Xbox One for Xbox Live Gold members through the Games with Gold program. The game is available for subscribers at no extra cost until June 15, and as long as you’re Gold subscription remains active, you can keep playing.
The game was released in 2018 and has been marked down to $30 USD, but free is an even better deal if you’re a Gold member and you like golf. The previous release, The Golf Club 2, is included with Xbox Game Pass.
GameSpot’s review of The Golf Club 2019 scored it an 8/10. Other reviews were mostly positive as well, but you should know that this is a challenging golf sim, not an arcade game.
The Golf Club 2019 features the PGA Tour license which brings a number of real-world Tour courses to the game, including TPC Boston, while the game has a course-editor, too. There are no player likenesses, however, so you can’t tee it up as Tiger Woods.
The game goes free on Xbox Live at a time when golf is surging into a new level of prominence and attention, as the PGA Championship–one of golf’s four Majors–takes place in New York starting Thursday.
The other Xbox game that recently dropped to the low, low price of $0.00 on Xbox Live is the backwards-compatible Xbox 360 title Comic Jumper.
