Will GL Golf's updates still be available for existing, paid-users, without having to buy it again in the Apple Store? The Apple Store doesn't recognize my paid version.

It would also be nice if the trees wouldn't disappear from time to time. As far as the ball is concerned they are still there.

I like this game. Fun to play. HOWEVER... on occasion, when I get a hole in one and press 'R' for a replay, I do not get the hole in one. I miss the hole and am set up for a birdie. Everything else is cool, but don't take away my score. That defeats the purpose of it being a game if it's not fun. There are also inconsistencies with wind strength at times.

Bonjour !

My name is Stephane Provencal.

My user name is stephane.provencal@sympatico.ca and the name that i used when i'm playing GL Golf is Stephane.

I love playing GL Golf. The GL Golf 2.20 version is very fantastic and realistic.

I want to take advantage of the GL Golf Lite (Free) offer, but i don't own an iPhone/iPod and i am a Subscription pack owner of GL Golf.

Please, yours faithfully !

Too much money for a game that has mediocre graphics and terrible music. Reminds me of my first Nintendo back in the 1980's. Nice effort.

I have been playing GL Golf for about 6 months, and it's still a fun and challenging game. I have an Intel Macbook, and can't run Tiger Woods without an expensive new Video Card, and I'm grateful for this excellent alternative. Thanx Jake!

This Golf game is very realistic and enjoyable. You actuallly are able to make "aces" and Eagles. The developer keeps up with the game and continues to update adding courses that are challenging. Developer, Jake, listens to feedback. They care!

I don't see how the real game of golf could be better simulated

The software inventor is still working out a few bugs, but they are minor.

The best thing to do is start with the 15-course option and then build from there.

There are easy courses, and hard. There are famous, and those you've never heard of. One or two of them have greens that are virtually impossible, but I guess they truly exist. As for me, if I find myself in Morocco someday, I'll stay inside and have a beer or sixteen.

Ray, I just fixed and uploaded a new version. I had a hard time (took 3 different computers) recreating the bug but I finally found it and took care of it. Thanks
