What's New in Version 2.2.1
Hey golf kings, update now for a smoother experience. We've made a few behind-the-scenes adjustments to keep your golf game great and your courses cool.
The mechanics/interface are good, and the graphics are nice. The problem is that it's essentially a useless series of challenges that bare zero resemblance to actual golf. It's just fun enough that when you're forced to look at a full screen ad between EVERY challenge you don't throw your phone against the wall. Most of the challenges incorporate insane physics and are just difficult enough to make you need to buy more coins. But the real reason that this is the worst golf game ever? YOU CANT EVEN PLAY A ROUND OF GOLF!!! I could easily forgive the ads, the micro-transactions, and even the silly physics, if I could just play a freakin round of golf. It's like they built a full golf game, then took away the main game, leaving behind only the silly mini games and practice holes.
E. A.: I would PAY for an actual golf game. You don't need to trick me with this nonsense.
Fun, but could be better. Also, it crashes!
Ultimately a very fun game, but I find myself just waiting for the stroke play challenges and being bothered by the others. The game should be predominantly stroke play with challenges sprinkled throughout, not the other way around as it is now. Also, this game crashes semi frequently and that can be extremely frustrating when you're just finishing up a challenge you are about to win. Hopefully the EA crew will get that crashing issue straightened out in an update in the very near future. It seems like the lack of a stroke play option is a common complaint as well; hopefully they'll listen and do something about that. Overall the game is fun and I keep coming back to it!
Just okay; glad I didn't pay for it
I was looking for a golf game, instead I found this. King of the Course will not allow me to play a full round of golf. Instead, it forces players to play though a series of "hit the target" type challenges between each hole. The in-play physics are terrible, and at times the ball seems to bounce in the strangest directions despite the wind, aim, and spin on the ball. In addition, I got really tired of full-screen advertisements popping up between every challenge with no way to disable them. I will be deleting this game. If you are looking for a real golf game don't waste your time with this.
