Swing your Dualshock 4 or PS Move controller like a golf club across a variety of courses

Everybody’s Golf VR lets you step up to the tee and enjoy a round in virtual reality. Developed by Clap Hanz in association with JAPAN Studio, Everybody’s Golf VR marks the VR debut for the much loved franchise, letting players step into the shoes and score hot shots across the course.

The initial idea for the game came to us at SIE when we looked at how we could better immerse ourselves and our players into the world of Everybody’s Golf, and let players step into those idyllic courses and those tranquil scenes that players all know and love.



*The image above is for illustrative purposes and is not a screenshot from the actual game.

The controls for Everybody’s Golf VR are slightly different from earlier Everybody’s Golf entries, but something that hasn’t changed is the series’ commitment to delivering an experience that everyone can easily enjoy, taking thrilling golf shots and nailing that perfect swing. Players can swing their Dualshock 4 or PS Move controller like a golf club, allowing them to experience the fun of golf with their whole bodies and immersing fully into the game.

Not only does this make golf accessible to all, as one would expect from the Everybody’s Golf series, but for the first time ever in the series, players will be able to see the uneven terrain, read wind direction, and experience the nature of the golf course all with their own eyes – a 360 degree VR experience made possible by the PlayStation VR.



We’re so excited to share this game with you next year and bring you more details on the courses soon! Stay tuned to the PlayStation social channels and blog for more about Everybody’s Golf VR!

Oh, this is something I'd like. Might even be something the girls can enjoy too.

Everybody’s Golf VR’s tees off on 22nd May
Plus, details on control options, events, pre-order bonuses and more

What would happen if you could play Everybody’s Golf in VR? Could VR be the key to creating more realistic courses, ones where players feel like they are actually there?

These were a couple of the questions that first launched this project alongside Everybody’s Golf for the PlayStation 4 system. We wanted to take the series somewhere it had never been before and do something entirely fresh with it.

Everybody's Golf

After we began working on Everybody’s Golf VR*, we soon realised that we were on to something great. The nature of golf proved to be perfect for VR. The VR space itself further pushes the immersion, so you feel as though you are really on a golf course surrounded by natural scenery.

From there, our focus was on developing a golf game that felt real while still remaining accessible. We didn’t want to make it a simulator, but instead something that players could easily enjoy. A big part of creating the realistic golf experience was making it compatible with one PlayStation Move motion controller** as well as the Dualshock 4 wireless controller, both of which you can use to take your golf shots***.

Everybody's Golf





In addition to a variety of original courses (with dinosaurs?!)****, we also built a practice ground (a first for the series) for players to practice their shots before hitting the courses. And, of course, we couldn’t forget caddies.

Not only are they on hand to give advice as before, but now they also appear in random events during the rounds. We thought that VR created a unique opportunity to interact with them and hope that these events provide a fun little break between holes.

Pre-order Everybody’s Golf VR now to receive bonus content at launch, including:

  • Additional Caddie – Steve
  • Everybody’s Golf VR – Seaside Theme
  • Everybody’s Golf VR – Forest Theme
  • Everybody’s Golf VR – Custom Theme




The game is set to be released on 22nd May for PS VR and is available for pre-order now on PlayStation Store . See you on the fairway!

*Please review and follow all safety guidelines for use of PlayStation VR. PlayStation VR is not for use by children under age 12. PlayStation 4 system, PlayStation VR and PlayStation Camera are required to experience VR functionality.

**One PlayStation Move Motion Controller optional.

***Please review and follow all safety guidelines.

**** Must complete certain levels to unlock additional courses and features.

It's like "Hey, caddy! Go fetch my ball!" :P

It looks ok, but I wonder if it doesn't get boring (or tiring) soon.
