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
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.
One of the best single player golf games
Great game overall. Controls are a little odd to get comfortable with but once you understand the power and wind direction combination needed for certain shots it’s fantastic. Double tapping the screen allows you to zoom in or out and curving the ball requires you to overpower a shot into the red portion of the bar. Other than that the controls are straightforward.
There are also user created holes with sections such as recently created, most played, most liked, and featured holes. This also means you can create your own holes! I already saw the iconic par 3 from TPC Sawgrass with the hole on an island in the middle of the pond.
The free version lets you play about 4 holes until you see an ad, unless you quit out of a course. I’ve seen ads pop up more frequently when quitting out. At least the game lets you get into a rhythm of playing before throwing an ad in your face, so that’s a positive.
The games free; download it now if you’re into golf.
Edit: please add the wind direction indicator to the map of the hole so you don’t have to keep switching back and forth to see the wind while looking at the entire hole.
This game is great. It’s simple. It’s fun. It’s not too hard. It’s not too easy. It’s a perfect balance of a lot of features that many people will like. Featuring custom player-made courses is genius. However, there are some additions that could put this game way over the top. For one, although I love creating holes to play, I want the ability to put them together as a playable 9 hole course. These could be shared with friends and would be a lot of fun to compete with one another on. This would allow people to recreate real life courses, as well as ones of their own imagination. Besides this, this is by far my favorite golf game on the App Store. Wonderful job.
