Virtual golfers looking for an alternative to EA's simulation franchise can now take a swing at The Golf Club, a new golf game from developer HB Studios that just hit Steam Early Access.

Though HB warns would-be players that The Golf Club is not yet complete - a caveat that should be attached to all Early Access releases - the developer notes that this version of the game includes "the full core experience." Not only can players hit the polygonal links, either solo or with online pals, they can also build their own courses to share with others. As development rolls on, HB Studios plans to add tournament support as well as full-fledged tours.

Best of all, to celebrate the Early Access debut, HB Studios is offering a 15 percent discount on The Golf Club for a limited time. More details are available on the game's Steam page.
