Hello all,

I'm excited to announce that Resort Boss: Golf's March update is now live!

The March update sees the debut of a course builder, allowing you to freely link their holes together into a guided course for their resort’s golfers, a terrain generator, a character creator and a selection of new cosmetic options, diversifying your golf resorts.

There’s still plenty to come from Resort Boss: Golf’s Early Access period, with tournaments, wildlife, challenge scenarios and more already confirmed for release across April and May.

  • Expanded the hole panel, with more information and tools for evaluating the holes you have built.
  • Added two new tools for hole building: (these tools are accessible both from the hole info panel and from the hole builder)
  • Shot Analyzer: Allows you to place the ball on any spot near a hole, and see what are the options that the AI is more likely to choose.
  • Heatmap: For holes with play history, shows you the most commong landing spots for shots.
  • Added the Course Builder, which allows you to create and customize the courses in your resort. It allows you to:
