GL Golf is a golf game by Nuclear Nova Software. $5.99
I really enjoyed this game as a golf simulation, which provided a realistic shots and ball movement. The first thing that got me interested in the lite version was that there was no person holding the club, which so far on the app store golf games have made them a real turn off. There are 6 challenging 18 hole golf courses to play around on in three difficulty modes which will really test how good you are. The deluxe version for just $4 more has a staggering 22 courses.
The graphics in this game were recently improved in an update and makes the game look alot better than it was. With the amount of courses they can be forgiven as they do what is needed by showing difference between the fairway, rough, green, bunker and lake. The controls in this game are easy enough to use with a swing button and dragging your finger vertically to change clubs and horizontally to change direction of the shot.
There is no in game music in the game, just sound effects of hitting the ball, landing in the water etc. Your own music is available to play which is fine.
Each course is available to play with either the first 9, back 9 or the full 18 holes. Realistic options available to professional golfers are now available for you to use. The ability to draw, fade, loft and punch the ball as well as the amount of backspin you want. The courses have varying lengths on each hole with alot of challenging holes. There is an online leaderboard to keep you wanting to improve. Good scores are possible, on rare occasions I have gotten a double eagle which is so hard to do. The difficulty levels add a new challenge to the game. Starting on easy getting pars and birdies it will get you thinking that this game is quite easy. As you change the difficulty you find yourself manually changing the club for the right length and having no idea where the ball will go exactly. Each difficulty has its own high score list.
This game is the best golfing game on the app store to date, the amount to play around with is amazing. For serious golf buffs I strongly suggest you to get the deluxe version with 4 times as many courses. If you aren't sure if you will like it I suggest the lite version first. Excellent game, really enjoyed it.
I would recommend this game if you enjoyed- GL Golf Lite
