Golfing Around is a easy to pick up golf simulation.
Hit a long drive from the tee,
Chip onto the green from the bunker,
Putt into the hole on the green,
A nice simple round of Golf.
Once you get a feel for the controls maybe try curving a long shot onto the green across the lake, keep an eye on the wind though and watch out for the trees!

Ratings and Reviews
I enjoy this game and have been looking for one like it on iOS for years. Simple overhead graphics reminiscent of Mario Golf on NES and Gameboy. Quick and easy to play, but with enough challenge to stay interested. Being able to create your own holes and play those made by others is a huge bonus. A couple of improvements would make it 5 stars. I tried to contact the developers with my suggestions, but the links go to Twitter. I don’t have a Twitter account and don’t want to get one. How about giving an email address? I’m hoping you read the reviews, so here’s my suggestions. First and most importantly, after paying to remove ads I was dismayed to find that I’m still bugged to watch an ad to reset the hole on every shot when I’m over par. I’m not interested in cheating or watching ads. Please include an option to turn that off once you have paid. Second, it would be nice to have the option to begin each hole at the map view instead of having to select it every time. Thanks and keep up the good work!
Fun old school feel.
Enjoying the game. I think there is definitely room for improvements with the golf mechanics. Zooming in on the mini map would be a great feature. Naturally I want to be able to swipe left or right to move my shot. The wind should show up in the mini map as well since aiming is a bit easier in that view. Backspin and more loft would make the golf mechanics and little more smooth in my opinion.
The course creator is the coolest part of this app by far. Have at it and create holes from your imagination or recreate your favorite holes on the tour. You can create a full golf course for yourself or upload it to the cloud so others can play it.
Overall a great relaxing experience.
Thank you, Colin
For making such a fun little golf game. I prefer this kind of golf game over the “for real” simulations. Took me a bit to figure out what to do, but now that I have, I think this may be my favorite game of yours (and I have several).
PS: Ahem, the glowing review was based on the first course. The other two are ridiculously difficult, and I spent a frustrating amount of time in the rough, water, sand. Then I learned to change clubs. But as others have said, it still can be hard to judge the power of your swing and where the ball is going to end up. All in all, I liked it enough to buy the ad opt out. I believe in supporting you for the enjoyment you give me.
PS no 2: thanks for the tutorial. A little late, but it helps. Good job.
