"This is a solid game and should definitely be on every duffer's app download list."

"In the end, GL Golf is an incredibly deep game, serving up six courses and tons of options, it never gets old"

"Of all the golf games and simulations I’ve played so far for the iPhone, there’s one that stands head-and-shoulders above the rest. GL Golf."

"I must say, this app is a very fun app. I am kind of addicted."

"The game play is solid. To swing the club just double tap on the screen; when the power meter reaches to a spot you want, just single tap and the club will swing, hitting the ball. You can change the type of club you have by dragging your finger up/down the screen, thereby changing the range. The game does pause itself when you tap the home button, so if you get a call while playing, you won't lose your game. "

Unrealistic Golf

I love playing golf and have never played on courses depictied in GL Golf. I usually do not write reviews. I enjoyed playing the GL Golf lite pack it was more like regular golf. I find GL Golf espeacilly the greens from the add on packs very small, unrealistic in having severly slanted greens, hole placement on severe slants and peaks where putting is very hard and rediculous and nearly impossible. Some driving and chipping are not consitant throughout the game. I think some one ought to go play around of golf and see what greens look like, pin placement, and how the over all game of golf is played. I will not be purchasing any further packages of golf as I find it a waste of money. There is not much to choose from for golf on a mac and this is probably mediocre at best to what they could develop.

GL Golf My Favorite

I've enjoyed actual golf for decades so I was amazed to find GL Golf plays very realistically. Having played actual golf at a few of the included courses, I went for the add-on courses and found them also very convincing. I think GL Golf is the best of all the computer golf games I've tried and I'm glad to see the color problems that cropped up in OS 14.0 have been fixed in the latest GL Golf version. Way to go!
