Everybody’s Golf first launched in 1997 with a remastered release in 2017. The golfing title started a franchise that has since spawned 12 additional games, the most recent being 2019’s Everybody’s Golf VR. Other games in the series include Everybody’s Golf 2, Everybody’s Golf 3, Everybody’s Golf 4, Everybody’s Golf Portable, Everybody’s Tennis, Everybody’s Golf 5, Everybody’s Golf Portable 2, Everybody’s Stress Buster, Everybody’s Tennis Portable, and Everybody’s Golf 6. These are great games to play not only single-player but especially with friends. This is why fans might be disappointed by the removal of online features as it means players must be in the same room to enjoy the game together via local play.
Everybody’s Golf is available to play on PS4.
