My first review was not favorable as I believed the game was rigged after reading all the negative comments. And, I did start losing more games after I spent money. After continuing to play, because I love this game, I realized the problem was with me. Since I had more money, I was able to move up in the tour. Moving up in the tour is why I was losing more. It takes time and patience to understand all the aspects of this game. The beginning levels are easier to win because it’s the beginning level. Since the game gets more difficult to master as you move up into levels, you will lose more in the beginning. Stay with a level you are experience with until it is mastered, before you move on. When you do, get ready to lose in the beginning. Also, when you are paired with someone with more experience than you, watch what they do, and you will learn the ins and outs of the game. Otherwise, you will never get better playing people as skilled as you. One last thing, no one ever mentions how beautiful and creative the graphics are and all the other aspects of this app that makes it so beautiful, creative and fun to play. And, as golfer, we all know that there is no game more frustrating to play when you are not winning than golf. This app is no different. Also, nothing in life is free. If you want to play, you will need to pay. They have to make money to keep the app going.
Fun & Challenging
I’ve used this game for a little over 6 months now and think I have a pretty good feel for it over all. The game a easy in the beginning - as you work your way up the ranks it gets harder - as most games do. The graphics are awesome, play is easy and you can do moderately well without spending a dime... the pitfalls are there though - when your winning you should play play play - when you are not stop. The game obviously works with/on algorithms Like a slot machine - when you’re hot you’re hot - when you’re not you’re not. However just because you’re doing great on me level doesn’t mean you’ll be successful on another during the hot steak - and vice Versa. Be carful spending money - once you do it seems the only way to continue to improve is to spend more money - that’s how they make their money though, so it’s ok to donate every now and again. Personally I’d rather have paid more for the app and not have all the in game purchases. I don’t like the special balls and clubs - I’d prefer to keep the game on a equal playing field for all. I also wish putting was a little more challenging so you could upgrade putters if they are going to upgrade all other clubs. Lastly unlocking clubs should be easier as you move up the ranks of this is the route they want you to go. In app purchases should be a lot cheaper - a lot cheaper. Overall the game is fun and you can do well either way and your ability to advance ultimately resides in your skill.
Good game but very frustrating
This game is a good game to play and very addicting as well. I would enjoy it so much more if I was able to play the other tours. I earned enough coins to unlock Tour 7 but at 100,000 coins per try its impossible to play a round. I play the other tours to try and earn enough to play but I’m losing those coins too. I’ve been stuck playing tours 5 and 6 so long that I guess I’ll never advance in the game. Yes I know that you also have to upgrade your clubs to get better but when you’re constantly trying earn back what you’ve lost, there’s just no way to upgrade them. I did purchase some packages early on in playing this game but have since stopped because it didn’t help anything. Case in point, I started the weekend with 125,000 coins and with 1170 trophies, thats having every tour complete from 1-6. At the time I’m writing this I’m at 25,000 coins and down to 1115 trophies. I don’t mind losing a few games here and there but when it becomes a constant, it makes advancing downright impossible. You guys would have such a better game if you paired the opponents better. Maybe pair them with the same level as players, for example a pro 1 vs pro 1 or expert 1 vs expert 1. Pairing an expert 1 player against a pro 1 player isn’t really fair in my opinion. Good luck in trying fix some of these issues. Like I said before I would enjoy this game even more if I was able to advance in the game further than what I’m at now
Last Update has been great!
I absolutely positively love Golf Clash! There are days I get so frustrated too though... Ultimately Golf Clash is a mobile golf game based on skill. You do have to level up clubs and this can be difficult at times as you never have any idea what clubs you are going to receive. Within the app you receive free chests, pin chests (which take 8 puts from the ON to obtain whether you win or lose a round) and then the chests you receive when you win a round against an opponent. More chests are rewarded for completing tournaments as well as being in a top percentile in your league each week. If you earn enough winning currency each week there is a promotion zone that will promote you to the next league rank. The higher your rank the more club cards you receive on each chest you open.
Having epic, rare, or common clubs doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a better club until it’s at an appropriate level from upgrades. I recommend looking up a handy guide put together by a dedicated player showing club stats to choose the best clubs you can to play with that are available.
Get out there, have a blast, and remember power does not always win. Focus on being precise on your shots most importantly and remember to factor in the wind speed! (this takes time to learn)
4000+ experiences review.
With 4000 games played and amassed clubs and a lot of real $$$ money spent, I can give you a real answer. And Chris or any other cookie cutting copy and paster playdemic team member response is not needed to contradict this statement. The programmers and developers and executives of this company are ALL laughing at us...why cause we, like all golf addicts, bought into a game that is controlled by puppeteers and we’re the puppets. Everything someone says about being “rigged” is right. But it’s not the matchmaking that’s rigged it’s the game itself. I’ve gotten dozens of responses from playdemic saying they don’t rig the physics. They do, I’ve played enough holes and logged enough recordings to have proof that it is. I’ve even duplicated they’re physics programming and am currently in the midst of forming a class action lawsuit against these crooks. By the way they aren’t going to be laughing much longer. You ever notice how when you BUY chests, (level 13 platinum for example) you get low level rare clubs consistently, but open a silver level 10 chest and you get 1xApocalypse card??? Yep just bought 12 level 13 platinum chests in a row. Nothing but level 4 epics or less. Rigged (no need to respond, playdemic) you know what you did. This is a criminal enterprise at its finest, because they’ve received programming approval to develop this garbage to the public.
I read in one review that support wrote in a reply to a player that said there is some luck and some skill. I would have to say that it is all luck. I'm well over 500 trophies and have made it well over 600. But what happens many times is you may win about 5 or 6 in a row, then you'll lose about 10-12 in a row. I have other friends who have played this and agree with me that it is rigged. If you are one to take games seriously, then this is not the game for you. This is one where you will pull your hair out in frustration when you thought you hit a perfect shot and it does go in. Would recommend WGT Golf instead. Much better golf game and more realistic.
UPDATE: I have come back and really wish this had a zero star rating because that is what this game deserves. Definitely a rigged game. No question about that!! I have seen at least three or more shots that were fixed. It amazes me that when someone plays really good and for some reason can drop one hundred points in a couple of hours. RIGGED!!!!!! Several of my friends also have played this and all have said that it’s rigged. UPDATE AGAIN: Still a lousy, rip off game. Just went to play, tried to hit the ball and every time I did it would switch back to aerial view. I tried several times to hit the ball and it kept doing the same thing until I timed out. Rip-off!!! Don’t waste your time. This was the last straw. This was the last time I am playing. Warning to all: DON’T PLAY!!!!!
This game is generally speaking very great. When first stumbling on this game through a friend I quickly found myself playing all the time. It is fun to level up clubs and play all the different tours and courses. It can be frustrating when you lose multiple in a row or lose all your money and start from scratch but that is the users fault obviously (don’t bet money you’re not willing to lose) anyways, the reason I am giving it 4 stars and not 5 is because the bugs have been driving me crazy. I have lost games before due to glitches, connection errors stuff like that and I never expected the game to be perfect but at some point it should stop. A connection error that came out of no where when my WiFi was perfectly fine cost me a tournament. I was shooting and it said reconnecting right as I was about to release my shot I held my finger there with the hopes it would let me reconnect and shoot. It did not only not let me shoot but by the time my screen fixed the glitch the other person had already taken his next shot and I was about to run out of time again. Frustrating to say the least. I would love to see the glitches fixed so I could give it 5 stars and golf clash make it up to the users who’ve lost out on things due to glitches and bugs.
Horrible support & Rigged!
I contacted Golf Clash support because of multiple issues that I had found with the game. I was instructed to tag the shots / games as “support” and they would review. Surprise ... Surprise, the communication stopped once I provided what they asked. No response from them in 6 days since providing the actual game replay showing the issues. All of these games showed examples of unfair gameplay such as my opponents ball sticking in a rock cliff, bouncing off of water or magically putting spin on a ball when the player never opened that screen to do it! None of these issues happened before I started dumping money into the game.
Advice: Dont get me wrong, I loved playing the game but die to these issue don’t recommend it, do yourself a favor and don’t play but if you do don’t ever pay for anything in this game. If you do you will start loosing every shootout or shots that once would have been good will all of a sudden fly past the hole or end up super short. Once the game forces you to lose enough games it is impossible to ever advance because at an average win rate of 50-55% “average” you will never be able to advance and unlock the next level without paying for gems to get coins. Also once they know that you are a sucker and will pay money the issues will increase. It is completely rigged and has cost me real money and a ton of frustration.
I welcome ANYONE from Golf Clash to review what I submitted and contact me!
New: try checking the profile for the players at the top of the global ranks. The game crashes. You can check profiles for other players to see their win % but you can't look at the top ranked players. Rigged game. Hopefully they are breaking some laws here because I'm going to report this...
Just like every other game...you can only advance so far before the game turns on you. The matchmaking is broken, I'm literally in the second tier of ability ranks and I get matched up with players way more advanced than me. My clubs are level 2 and 3. Theirs are level 5-6. The chests don't even hold enough coins to play a round...the "visual" graphics are off from the "actual" graphics. You can use gems to unlock new clubs but they charge you 10x the amount of gems if you haven't unlocked the club yet. So the higher tier clubs cost 500 gems if you haven't unlocked them yet but drops down to 50 after you've received the club. It's definitely a pay to win game...if you buy gems you can buy different balls which can be manipulated beyond forward and backspin. The best ball you can buy can turn the ball almost 90 degrees to the side. The game is fun...it is...but the fact that all of these bugs still exist after they've released new content begs to ask the question...why do they still charge players money for ANYTHING until the game functions 100%? I bet that "pay us money" button works 100% of the time doesn't it?
Worst game of all time.
I wrote a review about 2 months ago after playing the game for a few weeks. You are playing against an AI that is selecting a shot from an opponent’s archive history and using it against you...rigged...you cannot win consistently. No matter how good you are or how good of a shot you hit, the computer can select an opponent shot anytime and beat you. When I have won too much without paying money then the cheat begins. I have hit miracle shots with a 12 mph crosswind with no green to work with to within inches from cup. AI opponent will then hit a hole in one. If I get an Eagle...they get an albatross. Tonight was the ultimate. In a shootout, the AI opponent missed the green somehow and was 17 feet from hole. I hit second and hit the ball perfectly. It bounced twice and hit the pin just above the hole and rolled backwards 18 feet off the green. I rest my case. One more thing. I shot 20 under par in Pro level qualifying round of this week’s tournament and missed the 50 man cut. Stop worrying about how much money you can steal from players and make an attempt to improve game. Saw some players suggest practice holes and most importantly, drop the cheating shoot-out format. Of course that would severely impact your revenue...how silly of me. Another week and still no response or improvements. I’ve got an idea. Why don’t you eliminate the matches and tournaments and just have the shootouts. That way you can steal even more money from people in less time !
It’s really a good game
As stated above this is really a good game. I love playing it. Like any game worth its salt it’s very addicting my only complaint is the wind speeds on here. I’ve had 9 miles winds not move my ball an inch then had a 1.6 mile wind move my ball 15 feet. If there is any glitch in this game it is that right there. Also there is a new thing going on where people “disconnect” during there shot and it lands in a totally different area then where it was pointed to and they have it pulled back to the max and land on perfect but you can’t see anything that really happens cause you’re staring at a huge white box saying they’ve disconnected. Also instead of matching by achievement points you should match by equipped clubs instead. I’ve played people who are not only 100+ higher and lower I’ve played with people who have clubs that are 3 levels higher which is a lot when they can clear the whole course in on shot and land on the green and no matter what I do I have to take multiple shots which is really truest unfair so if y’all really cared you’d change that
So I got bored and bought some Merlin balls on here for like 5.00 and since I’ve bought them I’ve lost to some of the stupidest stuff on here I could easily get 100k in a day now I’m lucky to even and 100 at the end of the day for the past week I’ve had to watch videos or wait for a chest to open so I can even play a 50 game this is seriously the most ridicules game ever
Was great until last update
Now the game server keeps acting up. It stole 300,000 coins from my account. Blamed it on the other player, but didn't refund my account. Still releasing the ball on its own. I notice it does it right after you use your gems to get coins! It's a scam! Tried it again! Why in the hell can't you fix the glitch that makes the ball release before you release it causing it to slice or hook.?! Usually this happens after you have won a few games, which leads me to believe that the game is so rigged it's unbelievable. You'll win five games and then you will lose 30 no matter how well you line the ball up and how perfectly you release it! There needs to be a place to report apps like this. They are a scam! Update! Deleted it! If you like games that crash and then take your winnings, then this is for you. I would give it no stars if that was an option! Thank you for adding those Spooky Halloween courses that are gray in color, so that people who are colorblind can no longer play!
Ever since the last update, the game worked perfectly. Now it times out. It says client time out, even though my Internet connection is fine then it takes the coins out of my winnings. Also you can line the ball up perfectly and it will go completely off course as if you did a deliberate slice or hook. Definitely a glitch in the new update. Debating on not playing until it is fixed. It's very frustrating!
Update - more $$ from me. I succumbed to the temptation and spent a decent amount of money on this game and was enjoying it. Maybe wining more than I was losing. But boom like a switch I lost over 1.7m coins I’m a matter of days. Right now I win one and lose 6 or 7 in a row. No way to stay at a level - I didn’t ask to be “promoted”. I also don’t get how I can do nothing right but my opponents do nothing wrong. This game gives me anxiety. Even if I win about half the time I could enjoy it but tonight I won one and lost 6 in a row and every opponent was like Gary Player and Tiger Woods combined. Hope you enjoyed my money. Lesson learned. I would give negative stars if Apple let you because playing this game makes me miserable.
At first it’s a very enjoyable game. I do agree with other reviews about the lack of penalty for out of bounds and the slightly unrealistic ball action. None of those would truly bother me if there was a way to practice, especially on new courses. I just started playing 6 star hotel and after a single victory I’ve lost every match since - which, since you pay so much to play that course, it’s impossible to get enough coins from bonuses or the lower courses to catch up what I lost. At least give and option to play each course as a practice round as many times as you want. Losing all the coins it took you weeks to save up in 2-3 matches really takes the fun away from this game.
Beware of this game.
By Milk guards
So the reviews are so high for this game because they give you a bonus to write a review, and most of the the reviews before a player learns how awful this game is. Forget game play, yes it's easy to learn, and putting is way too easy. The real issue with this game is far more sinister.
You get matched up to play other players in one hole shot outs. Simple enough. However the simulator decides who you should play an. Your clubs also have an accuracy level which ebb and flow according to the simulator. This means if the game thinks you need to loose they can influence the game by pairing you against someone who is destined to win because of their accuracy, or pair you against a player with clubs you can't beat etc. and if the game decides based on your game play and how often you play that you are a sucker who has a high chance to purchase advantages well then you are screwed. You will just get hosed shot after shot and lose match after match in new and mysterious ways.
If you contact the support staff they are always helpful and respond. But if you identify to them how the simulator influences the outcome to try and frustrate you to the point of buying something, they will remain silent. This game is a sucker bet for suckers who are willing to pay money to be king of an imaginary world. Good luck if you play, at first you will like this game, then you grow to abhor it and never play again.
Ok game but...
It’s an ok golf game, and has potential to be a lot better, there’s just some in game issues and such that I feel could be corrected.
1. Proper rules. No stroke penalty for water hazards??? I myself and others I’ve played against have been unfortunate to hit in the water but don’t receive the stroke penalty that is a basic rule of golf.
2. Being able to choose what club I want. You’re basically stuck with whatever club the game decides you need. Want to power out of the rough with a wood or other club and try to get more power or distance? Too bad. You’re stuck with your crappy “rough wedge”. Players should be able to pick whatever club they want to use, and take the risks of the shot from there.
3. Speaking of clubs... this is where the pay to win feature comes in. If you want to pay outrageous amounts you can buy better clubs for better “skills”, but if you want to be a casual player and earn cards, good luck and be ready for a grind, while you’re waiting for cards to upgrade, pay to play-ers are going to beat you with their bought skills. Making your card grind longer. Either need to be able to open more than one cheat at a time, or have more clubs per chest.
Number 3 isn’t that big a deal, but fixing to follow actual rules of golf, and allowing club selection would be huge factors for me to raise rating.
Great game but I want more
I’ve been playing this game for a while now. I put it down for a bit and recently picked it back up and was disappointed to find that not really all that much has changed besides the seasonally themed tournaments and balls that are available as rewards. I still love this game probably more than any other on my phone right now but I want more. More courses. MORE CLUBS with interesting stats or abilities. I’m tired of playing with the same old clubs I had months ago. I think it would be cool to add a whole new tier of clubs above the top tier of clubs available at present. Maybe they could have a single ability or something that makes them unique from the other clubs in the game. They could be rare, maybe earned from difficult achievements, tournament wins, etc. I think you could retain even more players by adding this small level of depth that keeps players grinding for these unique items. It’s something that I feel is missing from this game. Something to grind for above the normal clubs. It would go along with the arcade-y, quirky, fun style of golf clash and add more depth to the game. Other than that, keep doing what you’re doing! I love this game!
Started great, now I’m MAD!
First thing, this game is really fun, addictive and competitive! I love the premise of the game, its nice to finally have a golf game that’s free! I really wish there was a way to practice for free, and buying golf balls were cheaper! The amount that you get from winning isn’t enough to buy enough to compete with some of these people on here! It’s ridiculous, and very discouraging!!!
I’ve been playing it now for several months, and now 4 times now I am playing fine and it mysteriously loses signal!!🤬 such BS cause I’m on 5G WiFi! So then either I timed out or my shot is screwed!! Then just recently I paid 4.99 for a “special package”, then again 4.99 again for a “special package”, TWICE I HAD TO PAY BECAUSE THE FIRST ONE MADE THE APP CRASH AND I DIDNT GET IT!!! 🤬🤬
So then just now today (February 9th), I paid 3TIMES for the .99 cent, single shot for a trunk. IT TIMED ME OUT TWICE IN 10 SECONDS!!!! Then on the 3rd one, the ball just stops mid roll and I lose!!🤬🤦🏼♂️ so now I have just wasted $13 for NOTHING!!!! I’m So close to deleting this app and just finding a new one or buying a PS3 game! So either the Developers need to refund something or give me what I’m owed!
UPDATE!! Just As predicted!! I had finally won a couple in a row and built up some coin... welp now i lost 4 in a row and suddenly I cannot seem to hit the ball straight!!! What a BS rip off!! I want either a refund of my money spent or I want the stuff I paid for!!
Don’t waste any money on this game it won’t help you. They claim that you play against other players in real time, that’s not true. When you get to the higher levels you will be playing most of your game against computer saved games and who you are matched against determines whether you will win or lose not how well you play. It is easy to tell because a lot of times they are using balls that were from last summer and their clubs are always better than yours for that hole. Sometimes the shot direction arrow will face one way and the ball will go 90 degrees from that. If are are lucky to make it to a playoff chances are it’s a hole in one. I have been playing this game for months and actually love this game. It does get very frustrating when you know that a lot of the games you play you have no chance of winning no matter how well you play because certain matches are set up for you to lose. There are matches that are set up for you to win as well. But those few and far between. I’ve noticed that I have never played any matches against anyone in my division. Even the tournament matches are rigged. I have never played against anyone in the same as me. So their claim of real-time play is not true. I do have fun playing this game but I will not spend any money on this app knowing that the games are rigged. Have fun playing but save your money because it won’t help your game.
Was fun at first....
I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game and leveling up clubs and unlocking new tours, until it got to a point where the game lost its luster. While playing higher tours I noticed the wind in the game was almost never consistent. By this I mean the same wind for the same shot was never the same, even on perfect shots. I just recently uninstalled this game because of what happened on a perfect shot to get in the hole, only to watch it roll right past after seeing “perfect shot” appear on my shot. Another thing that I found frustrating about the game was the chests you open. Almost every chest I received gave me the same cards. I had multiple clubs that I did not want to upgrade that had 100s of cards waiting to be used on them. For my third dislike of the game, there is no way of practicing which would be extremely useful before you go play a tour that could potentially wipe you of your cash, causing you to either wait for a new chest, or pay with gems, or pay with actual money. These are the main reasons I uninstalled this game as it got to a point where it hit a wall and stayed there. And before you think “oh they just didn’t play enough” I was sitting comfortably in the mid 300s in trophies which is ample time to make a judgment call on a game like this.
Alright so I am beginning to believe that the tournaments are rigged in some form. The reason I am saying this is because of my position I was given in both tournaments. I have been pushed out of the top 50 once from rank 18 by players with the exact same final score of -16, I played the first tournament early with many hours left and all the players after who scored the same landed higher than me and pushed me out of the cut. Next time I tried what other players did by waiting three hours until the qualifying round was over. I played my holes and finished with a -16 again yet I was still placed at 49 and got pushed out by 3 more players finishing with the same score. Even though about 20 players all had the same score I did not advance. This is frustrating to me and I think it’s unfair that all players who tie do not advance or have a tie breaker event. When players with the same final score can push another player out then something needs to change how tournaments work. Why is it setup like this? Do players that spend money get perks for placement? Does win ratio have something to do with it? Please explain why ranking happens like it does during a tournament. This is a major flaw and in my opinion will drive away players who this happens to. The game is fun but tournaments are crap and the system needs to be revamped.
Same as before. Unfair play. Same shot as opponents different results. Why different wind direction and speed on a tee shot?? Sometimes you do not even come close to your target area on a perfect shot. Still fun, but frustrating at times. Just lost 8 games in a row. Can not get a perfect rim shot to fall. Opponents hit great and good putts & chips right in the hole. Maybe because I have NEVER spent a dime on this game. Just had a ball go into a bunker. Anywhere I placed my shot I could not see or get to my ball to take the shot. Time ran out on me twice trying to take my shot. This game is a real pos as far as being fair and realistic. Why different wind speeds and directions on tee shots?? Both are shooting from the same spot. I do not recommend this game. Please respond to this ASAP. What about not being able to to take my shot out of a bunker?? Could not even see my ball. I timed out twice trying to take the shot. I lost 3000 coins because of this BS. Will I get my coins back? This game is crock of s— t. Not fair. Paired against opponents levels higher then you. It goes on and on. Respond about getting my coins back ASAP. Your response never mentions me getting my 3000 coins back for not even being able to take a shot and timing out!!! Do I get my coins back or not??? Let me know ASAP. Ps your link or web thing above does not work for direct contact with Chris. Still waiting for my 3000 coins!
By dumb drummer
I’m mot sure what to make of this game, I at first shot like a rocket up to a 670 rating and over $150,000 then I couldn’t win a game to save my life no matter what rating my opponent had or how good of shot I made. Seems a bit fishy that I was so good then couldn’t hit a single quality shot but then I suddenly was able to make perfect shots without even trying to be perfect. I’ve seen the ball strike arrow jump ahead to either give me a perfect shot or it jumped not giving me a perfect shot. Am I supposed to believe that I can win game after game then suddenly go 20 games or so without winning? Doesn’t seem likely, I love playing this game but I’m not sure it’s totally legit.
UPDATE: I haven’t changed my opinion, I’ve somehow become great and can’t lose and progressed to the 1100 trophy level playing tour 6 but then suddenly and mysteriously I lost it all of my bank, when the game wants you to win you will and when it wants you to lose you will lose over and over, they give you false hope by letting you succeed and then hook you in then make you lose but you’re hooked so you spend money trying to get better equipment. Welp I’m not spending any money on this game ever. It’s a fun game but don’t let it frustrate you because “they” are controlling your winning/losing
Horrible game - pass on this one!!
This game is corrupt. It is geared towards making the only way to advance in the game as spending your money! You can have better clubs (if you spend $5 on an upgrade pack), you can have enough coins to play in tournaments with great prizes (if you spend $10 on coin packs), you can play prize pack holes (if you spend money on chances), and so on and so on........ In fact, to make matters worse, if you do happen to make enough coins to compete in regular game play, you suddenly start loosing coins in ridiculous fashions such as landing far off path with your "perfect" shot, loosing rounds in mysterious ways, etc., etc., etc.
If there were a way to give negative stars on the review, I would give it a -10.
Update: Gave this game enough chances, deleting it now. It’s addicting - I’ll give it that. The fact that as soon as I get a decent amount of in-game cash, however, I go on these hellacious loosing streaks from being placed against players that far outclass me, glitches in game play that didn’t affect me before, sudden extreme wind that’s near impossible to compensate for, or just plain rigged shots (seemingly) where strategies and “perfect shots” that worked fine before fall apart. This has happened not once, but literally every time I go over, say, 100,000 coins. Deleting with pleasure - I wouldn’t recommend this game to anyone.
Fun, but definitely rigged(READ THIS)
Like my title says, the game is definitely rigged. I did some research online to confirm my suspicions. Definitely look at your opponents stats every time you play someone. You will almost always see your opponent around the 50% win rate, give or take a few percentage. You will never play someone who has a win % of above 60%. Isn't it a little odd that no one is that good? That literally everyone you play is right around 50%. Other thing I was told to watch: I have used the exact same level club, in the same wind, that my opponent used, lined up just as they did, hit PERFECT SHOT on the bullseye just like they did...my opponent landed near the hole, my ball went sailing passed and in to the rough. I've seen this on several occasions. Now I don't understand algorithms and all that, but if everyone was winning all the time and lost infrequently, what would be the reason to spend money on the game. Then you could keep playing for free. You can't honestly believe the Devs want that. I urge everyone to do your research. Google issues or problems with the game. You'll see the forums and the remarks. Then you'll start seeing what they are talking about in the game. Good luck. Save your money for something else. It's an addicting game I get it. You'll want to keep playing(I spent money to keep playing). Spend your hard earned money more wisely.
