EA launching Facebook golf game

Real-time play, micro-transactions, etc.

EA plans to bring its licensed golf series to Facebook soon, but don't go locking up your cocktail waitresses just yet because Tiger Woods is nowhere in sight – instead we're told to expect a game called EA Sports PGA Tour Golf Challenge.

Due out this winter, Golf Challenge uses a one-click swing system and mouse or keyboard aiming and has you playing through rounds to earn XP and level up, unlocking real-world golf courses in the process.

It features daily challenges and promises to crown weekly champions, while impatient players can fork over cash in micro-transactions that "customise and accelerate a player's career". That old chestnut.

Golf Challenge has been developed by EA Sports Tiburon and is the third such Facebook sports game from EA in recent months. The other two were FIFA Superstars and Madden NFL Superstars, both of which are doing brisk business according to EA – FIFA claims over 3.7 million monthly users while Madden apparently has more than two million.
