Can I unlock all the courses for free?

Judging by the Game Revolution review, it sounds like it would only take about 320 hours to do so. You only need 100 pars per course to get gold mastery, and you only need about 20 hours of work to earn enough coins to play ONE of the DLC courses the six times it will take you to get those 100 pars...

So sure, you could do it for free if you're insane.

Oh, and you can't earn any coins if you're not logged into EA's servers.

Yeah, I'm planning to return my copy (unopened, of course) and put the $60 on Prototype or something. Anything. This is lame even for EA.

You're returning the game because it has DLC courses? It's been that way for years. Why would you even buy the game in the first place?

I know it's pretty damn weird to eat people.

You don't unlock all the courses with the collector's edition.

there are 14 courses to unlock if you did not preorder the collectors edition 11 of which can be earned and 3 which must be bought as of right now for collectors edition owners.

why are people complaining about COINS. Nothing has changed from the last 4 years of Tiger games. You can still buy all the DLC just like always but now you at least have the OPTION to sample a course before you buy it using in-game currency. And finally, EA is bundling the courses and discounting them. 11-course bundle is a no-brainer - just saved $15. And since no stores were selling the Collectors Edition, you can even upgrade to that with an in-game purchase.


This is the best post-release DLC marketing I've seen since the 360 launched.
