I picked this up awhile ago but moved on pretty quickly to something else for no real reason. But because of the 'small' local golf tournament known as the U.S. Open Championship, I came back to it. It is amazing.
The graphics and play are excellent (maybe to easy for some, but I've not used the really hard one yet and I'm sure the strike zone is much smaller, as is the putting). You can get into multiplayer tournaments that look pretty classy, and join a golf club if you like (none of which I've done thus far). Truthfully I've not gone to far into the game only being a level 15. But there are clubs to be had and boost etc. (all of which do cost, I'm not sure how much, I'm just enjoying the 'play a friend' part (and solo). So maybe it ends up being too costly. Have to see if I plan to go that far (doubt it). Just like playing locally with wife and children who play just to play and have fun.
Disclaimer: this is an iOS game, not sure if out for Android
Anyway, just had to bring it up 'cause it tickled the right bones. Lots of courses which are free (including Chambers Bay).
