To see a world in a bunker of sand
And a heaven in a wild cactus,
Hold infinity in the pocket of your shorts,
And eternity in Desert Golfing.

Simple but Addictive
The game has no pause screen, no options, and sometimes (at 100, 1000) has an option to share your progress or challenge somebody else. But it works. There is no music, and the sound effects are so simple you can play music in the background and not get annoyed by any sounds clashing with each other. Controls are minimal, but work well. (You pull back anywhere on the screen and it'll shoot the ball with that power and direction) There are some objects that pop up randomly throughout the game like a cactus, rock (didn't know it was movable I breezed right past it), and water hazards. This spices the gameplay up so it takes longer for it to get boring. The levels are never the same. I am currently on level 2018, and plan on going to 5000. It's addicting and the size of the game is so small (due to its minimalist design) that you'll never have to take it off so you can just pick up where you left off a month, or even a year from last time. For the people complaining on the lack of one stars, there's a reason for that! Get this game, it's only a dollar so if it's your not appealing it won't be that much of a loss. But if you love it like I do, it'll be worth $5 by the time you're done with it. (BTW I haven't had any color tint change that I noticed, so it must be a glitch)
Simple and pleasant game, but infinity ended at hole 10,000
This game has been my literal no-brainer game for several years. It’s small and simple design has kept me coming back for more. The occasional changes in landscape, be it a cactus, a cloud, a color shift, brought an element of satisfaction simply because of their rarity. It was a joy to see something new. A reminder of how pleasant the simple things of life can be.
However, upon reaching hole 10,000 today at 26,476 strokes, something new I did not expect occurred. Hole 10,001 did not generate. Instead I found myself on the shore of an endless ocean. Hmm, I thought. Perhaps it’s a fluke? So I rebooted the app and there was still no new hole. I hit the ball into the ocean, and the ball vanished beneath the water and did not regenerate again. I no longer have a ball to hit. Nor a hole to shoot for. The game promised infinity, but the game literally ending like this exactly at hole 10,000 seems like it’s an ending by design. If not, the game has broken at hole 10,001 and I’d like to keep playing. As far as endings go, I will say this does seem like a very appropriate ending for this simple game.
Read the reviews and tried it out. It's about what you expect, you know, just golfing in the desert.
I’ve had the game for almost a year (maybe 10 months) and I finally made it to level 10,000. Then it ended. Didn’t have a “Congratulations!” message it anything. Just a giant lake where your ball will never return from.
This was what I used to multitask and hold my ADD at bay during boring meetings / events. Totally worth it. Wish the levels lasted longer so now I have to go find a new time waster app.
So a month or two ago before I purchased, I read a review about a hole at 2800 that the reviewer couldn't get past because it's a hole covered by a plateau next to a body of water.
I was worried about it and also thought I'd never make it that far. Well, I just ran into that hole. It's hole number 2866 and it's a doozy. However, there's a trick: you can't land it directly into the hole. There's actually a land mass to the right, just off the screen. I found it by accident. By sheer luck, on my second try, it bounced off of that land into the hole. As a tip, you can't bounce it off the side, you either have to hit it from the top or on the corner (which is what I think I did).
Anyway, I plan to keep going until I get sick of it. Maybe I'll come update my review after I hit another significant landmark.
