Solid Golf - I've played a ton of golf games. This one is rock solid. And best of all it doesn't baby the user with gimmiky touch based swinging. Finally, a golf game for golfers.

Casual Fun - Been playing this for a year or so and really enjoy it. It isn’t a perfect, ultra serious golf sim, but a casual game that’s easy to get started and easy to improve with practice. Unlike other reviewers, I have not found the need to spend any extra money…simply play through the tournaments to gain experience points which improve your accuracy, distance, putting, etc. The graphics are fine (although there are occasional shots where the ball either becomes invisible or seems to float - the only reason I won’t give the app 5 stars), the controls are simple and intuitive, and you can play a round in 20 minutes or so once you get the hang of it. This is one of the few games that has lasting value for me and hasn’t been forgotten about in a week or two.

AWFUL INTERFACE. - It is obvious the 10 year old programmers of this app never played golf. Don’t waste your money on this piece of junk.
