#1 Solitaire game in the App Store for 2+ years! If you love puzzle, strategy, and logic games that challenge your brain, you’ll love Fairway Solitaire! Puzzling card layouts and special “hazards” deliver excitement and twists that you won’t find in classic solitaire card games like Pyramid, Klondike, Spider, or Free Cell solitaire.
Fairway Solitaire is fun and easy to play! Game play is one card up or down, similar to popular card games like Uno. The News hub makes it easy for you to navigate through fun events, trophies for challenges, and the 3 game modes; Main, Daily, and Bonus. Special cards, such as shuffle, preview, and mulligans (undo move) aide in your strategy for your next move.
Enjoy the peace and serenity of a golf course in your solitaire game play with beautifully hand painted backgrounds and card backs. Just like golf, you’ll use strategy and skill. Your “golf clubs” play like numbered cards and Midas Clubs™ are your joker or wild cards. Expertly play through rough hazards, sand traps, and rain hazards when you get hazard power-ups.

Update: my wife started playing and it appears there have been changes. She can't buy the perks I got to purchase. It seems the devs have made changes that make it harder to earn in game money. I guess I understand the revenue concerns but it now feels like there is nothing to work for. You have to play it 'just so' to keep a reasonable bank account. I spent well over $30 getting to a point where I could play this game ongoing. It looks like my wife will never get there. It will be a cash drain as far as the eye can see. So now I'm playing a lot less.
If you like this kind of game, this one is superbly executed. My title is a little misleading because it's clearly a 5 star game. The only complaint I have is that it's a bit expensive. You can play this game for forever for free (or so it seems from how far I've gotten) but I like to spend money on games like this to support great development and to help make progress. But it's $2 for 5,000 golf bucks. This equates to 2 times to get 5 more cards. This is just one example but in general I think it's around 1.5 to 2 times more pricey than I'd prefer. But still I'm only about $10 in and it's been worth every penny of that. So you can squeeze out a free game or spend some money and have even more fun.
Update: I'm now around $40 into this game and like it even more. I've learned how to not spend as much money if I don't want to. But the more I play the more impressed I get.
Costs exceed rewards
I've restarted this several times. It's a great game, but you quickly begin to rely on "Golf Bucks" to get any satisfaction from the investment required. Unfortunately, the rewards (golfbucks) provided in the game for progress do not keep up with the gradual increase in costs. So you must repeat the same holes many times to find a favorable draw (a growing bore) or spend real money to buy golfbucks to buy clubs necessary to overcome the poor draws (that increase in frequency as you progress in the game).
If I had a suspicious mind I might think this was contrived as an income generator (far in excess of the game's cost in the App Store) by the developer.
But at some point, the rising costs become too high for the lagging satisfaction provided in the game. So you will finally quit. Not because you reach the "conclusion" but because at some point it begins to cost more than it provides.
I'm loving Fairway
So, this is the latest game I've been playing & is not only more fun to play than I thought, but it is also a whole new way to play "Solitaire"!
I've found this to be a game that will challenge you to really strategize & use your brain, more so than you do in "Classic Solitaire"!
You don't run out of lives either. Of course, like most games you have the option to make "in-app purchases" but there's no need to when there are ways to earn free "Golf Bucks" instead of buying them!
I refuse to play "free games" that you HAVE to make "in-app purchases" in order to move on to different levels. This game is great.
I hope you enjoy, I am! Have fun!😊 👍🏻
