Everybody's Golf 5 (みんなのGOLF5 Minna no Golf 5?) (Everybody's Golf: World Tour in Europe, Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds in North America) is a golf video game developed by Clap Hanz/SCEI and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 3. It is part of the extremely popular Everybody's Golf series and was released in Japan on 26 July 2007, close to the 10th anniversary of the series debut on the PlayStation. Additionally, the game was sold in bundle deals with the PlayStation 3 in Japan.[3]

A demo was made available on the Japanese Playstation Network in May 2007. The European localised demo was made available on the Australian PlayStation Network on 14 February 2008. The demo arrived in North America on 26 June 2008.

The game was released in Europe and North America on 28 March and 18 March 2008 respectively. The North American release has mild censorship, replacing the panties of the female players with biking shorts.



Everybody's Golf 5 introduces a modified version of the "3 click" shot system. Instead of relying completely on the gauge at the bottom to estimate the strength and slice of the shot, the new system encourages you to use the actual character's golf swing to select the power. Once the strength of the shot is determined, the gauge disappears, and the accuracy of the shot relies on the player's timing when the club hits the ball.

Initially, there are six courses in the game, five beginner characters, five intermediate characters, five advanced players, and seven caddies. Shigeki Maruyama will become the second real-life golfer to become a playable character and caddy.

There consists of a story mode otherwise known as challenge mode where you compete in various tournaments and against other computer controlled players to increase your ranking and unlock various items.

The game has had a large graphical overhaul, with nearly every visual aspect becoming more detailed and realistic.
