This app keeps getting better and the 2D graphics is not bad and it does give me a chuckle when the player is standing in grass up to his hips on a fairway. However i am not a programmer and really have no comprehension of what is all involved in preparing the graphics for what is no doubt a complex application to programme.

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 ! Stephane Provencal stephane.provencal@sympatico.ca

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!

You'd think that living in Australia where we have ongoing sunshine I'd be able to hit the golf courses more often, but somehow that just doesn't happen. My partner just bought me a golf key ring to make me think of it more. Maybe the odd round at lunch might inspire me to get out there again too :-) Thanks for featuring this. Ralf

sorry but not convincing enough. Had much more immersion in the game back when Links was released for the PCs. The courses look like oasis in the middle of a grass desert. And the music is cheesy

Are all weekend offerings going to be games? Seems like there have been a lot of them lately. That's fine if it is, but it's just not of interest to me personally. (Though this one just about tempted me...)

I own the game and several expansion packs. I like the game, the physics model, etc., and the developer is a nice guy. I play a few rounds each week, and it's fun. No, it's not like a photo-realistic game in terms of graphics. But I like how the game has evolved, and I like that it works on Leopard. If you like golf, then this is worth trying out. To me, it was worth full price, so it's worth half-price for sure. Enjoy! :-)

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.

This is a superb golf game - everything works nicely, game is fluid and graphics are OK. I just wish it would be possible to improve the overall environment of the game (ie ambient sounds like birds, and some more vegetation surroundings). The music is excellent (too bad there's only 2 songs), and the courses' design is, in general, very good. A great game to get your mind off things for a couple of minutes once in a while.

Great, but needs more, and better, holes Occasional freezing when the ball is just between the water and land, and it just twitches back and forth Also, it should remember your music preference, and not always turn it on

I was looking for a simple golf game and while this was a good start, it needs some work. Golf balls bounce inconsistently and the 'physics' of the trees need some serious work. And the club swing mechanism could also be improved.
