Who says there isn’t life or golf for that matter on other planets besides our own? In The Golf Club 2, someone used the game’s golf course designer to create a track on Mars.
There’s no Mars theme in the design feature so how did this creativity unfold? Well, the creator took the steppe or desert theme (there are numerous themes in the game to fit your course’s atmosphere and ambiance), made the sky dark, but not too dark, and added little things like craters and such to give it an otherworldly feel.
It’s a lot of fun to play, and it takes fantasy golf to a whole new level. Playing the course, you instantly feel like you’re playing on Mars, minus the zero gravity.
The design of the nine holer features a few split fairway holes which are always popular. On one hole, you even have to hit over the two futuristic-looking clubhouses to reach the green. This is similar to the famed Road Hole 17th at St. Andrews.
Who says you can’t play the Road Hole on another planet?
If you have a copy of The Golf Club 2, then I highly recommend that you check out this course. It’s a fun twist on golf course design, using a powerful design feature.
I’m sure Pete Dye, who is famous for building courses in unorthodox places, would have loved to design a course on Mars if it was possible. Don’t worry Mr. Dye, you can still create a course on Pluto, Saturn or Jupitor…..if you know how to play video games anyway.
