1. The Golf Club 2
One of the best PC golf games out there currently is The Golf Club 2, awesome graphics, smooth features and most of all, fluidity.
The ball mechanics and overall ball physics are absolutely impeccable, we know of a lot of mediocre golf games that rush the actual aspect of the game and pay more attention to the graphics, The Golf Club 2 has surpassed all expectations and is an all-round well executed game.
It can be pretty difficult to start, not quite like Dark Souls, but the game favours patience over quick run-throughs. If you haven’t played the first installment of The Golf Club, we strongly suggest you do so.
With the inclusion of the golf course creator, you can now experience your dream course. Whether that be ridiculously difficult, or a quick birdie, you are in control, you have it in you to make your golf course as fun as you damn well please.
Online play is a must for any golf gaming fan out there, take the reigns and battle it out in tournaments to truly dominate your opposition. Collect as much cash and climb the rank ladder to prove you truly are the best golfer out there, think you are ready?
2. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07
Wow, just look at those graphics, nothing like a little nostalgia to bring us back to reality. I remember back to my childhood when my friends and I would whack this bad boy straight onto the PS2 after school and spend hours before our turkey drummers and chips, playing the hell out of this, where does the time go?
It may not look much, but the gameplay itself is what you want to focus your attention on, however hard it may be to divert your attention away from the graphics. With the addition of the Skillzone from 03, how many targets do you think you can hit? Think you’re up to the test?
We had an absolute blast playing this mode, not to mention the shootout mode. You have so many different challenges and playlists to choose from, why are you still here? Get out and buy the damn game.
3. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005
No we are not obsessed with Tiger Woods, we do not fancy him either. We do however believe his games are sublime, this is exactly the reason he’s on our best golf PC game list.
Nothing like going back a little further, back to Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005 when the game just started getting good. The developers spent much longer introducing customisable characters, something that was popular back then and most definitely now too.
When you aren’t smashing opponents on the course, you’ll spend a considerable amount of time in the pro shop upgrading pretty much everything. As stated in the 07 version, try not to focus too much on the graphics, focus on the game itself. The mechanics are flawless for a game that was developed over a decade ago.
You can see in Tigers’ eyes hes ready for the biggest hit of his career, it just needs you to make that happen.
4. Rory Mcilroy PGA Tour

Next on our list, Rory Mcilroy PGA Tour. Look at your audience, your fans, waiting in silence. Waiting for you to make that all important swing, will you hit that birdie? Or are you destined for the bogey. Test your skills in career mode, with fully functional advanced camera options to make this as realistic as humanly possible, you’ll be a pro in no time whatsoever.
You’ll set out right away and explore some of the most beautiful golf courses PGA has to offer, most more treacherous than the last.
With three main features to choose from, you are in control. Hate career modes? Go arcade. Arcade spruces gameplay up dramatically should you be into different little challenges rather than the whole “you swing, I swing” aspect of things. But hey, that’s golf! And you wouldn’t be here if you didn’t enjoy that.
Bonus – Tower Unite
A slight diversion from regular golf, this game focuses on miniture golf, a childhood favourite of most. Grab your putters and set your sights on that hole-in-one, the courses here in Towers Unite can get a little crazy, but that’s what we want anyway!
Each course is much different from the last, the game itself is a breath of fresh air in comparison to other mini golf games. The graphics are amazing, the gameplay is an absolute joy.
Its.Crazy.Golf. What is not to like?
