Nintendo Switch Sports has been a constant for many during the past few months, and with five sports already included in the game, fans have been waiting eagerly for an update that's been due on the fairways for a little while.

During today's Nintendo Direct, we now know that golf — which will be added as a free update — will be landing a little later than expected. Originally set to tee off this Fall, Nintendo revealed that it will be loading up the clubs for the courses just in time for the Holiday season instead. But we do know what to expect when we can don our golfing gear later in the year.

21 courses from previous Wii Sports games will be available from the start, as well as an eight-player online mode called 'Survival Golf', where the player with the most strokes will be booted out! Wow, who knew golf could be that brutal?

Let us know if you're looking forward to Switch Golf in the comments!
