WGT or World Golf Tour is an online golf game, it claims to be the most realistic online golf game and it is a very high quality game. The purpose of the game is to make it possible for anyone to play golf and spark people’s interest in the game. WGT offers single player and multiplayer games; it also allows people to learn the game by sharing information about rules, courses and equipment. It’s not just a game but it’s also an online community. Being a professional golfer isn’t possible for everyone; however this game makes it possible for you to find out exactly what it’s like. The online community allows players to compete to win prizes. It’s a virtual world where you can try to become rich and well known. There are currently three golf courses available virtually; all of these are modeled on real golf courses, including the Bali Hai Golf club in Las Vegas, The Wolf Creek Resort Nevada, and The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island golf resort. The team are promising to add many more courses in the future.
WGT was founded in February 2007, the game was previously available at worldgolftour.com however the whole site has since been re-branded as WGT.com, and the game is taking the spotlight on the site.
Unlike other online games this one could be confused with a normal computer game, generally online games are slow and unresponsive but this one isn’t. The graphics are also better than you would expect from an online game and could easily rival what you would get from the modern generation of games consoles.
The game is great fun to play, it does take some getting used to how to control it but that’s just because golf is a complicated game. Once you know the basics then there will be nothing stopping you, it should be fairly easy for you to play golf at some of the most beautiful golf courses in the world. Although nothing could replace actually playing golf there for real, these virtual courses do come a long way. The graphics are fantastic and can easily be compared to photographic quality.
