    If you think this is at all entertaining, you can get WAY more fun and content for free with super stickman golf! Any of them, though #3 is the best. Don't understand how games like that can't rise above the sea of clones that makes up Google play. Full Review

    "The desert has a personality, it has a voice. Great leaders in all ages have sought the desert and heard its voice. You can hear it if you listen, but you cannot hear it while in the midst of the uproar and strife for material things. Gentlemen, what for came ye into the wilderness? Not for conventional scholastic training; not for ranch life; not to become proficient in commercial or professional pursuits for personal gain. You came to golf - and with this app, now you can." - L.L. Nunn Full Review

    If you want to play a fun game that is actually a game, you should play "Not Golf." It is actually worth money. I wish I could refund this but I played to 100 hoping something fun would actually start happening. Damn you XKCD. My hobby: casually mentioning a unique "game" without any real interesting parts in my webcomic and laughing at any griping commenters. Full Review

    Simplistic, and absolutely what I was expecting when I bought it. However, pushing one of the rocks that can spawn into the hole and then advancing to the next level, then exiting the game, caused the game to break for me. Full Review

    Bought because of XKCD. Instructions would've been nice. Took me a while to see you didn't have to click the ball to shoot. Full Review

    Great gane. One bug: display wrong if game is resumed from lockscreen. Must exit then resume from home screen to restore display. Full Review

    Why do they call this "desert golfing" when the ball behaves like being played on concrete? In the beginning, the minimalism has a certain charme, but after a while it's just plain stupid. Full Review

    No in app purchases or currency to buy, just plain golf in the desert. It could be better or have more features but there is nothing wrong with it how it is. You get exactly what you'd expect for the price. It's refreshing to see something that isn't pay to win on the play store. Truly an example all developers could look to for how to monetize there games. Full Review

    Such fullfillness can only be attained by magic, such as the one of a witch of the sand. Open the game, play. Reopen the game, continue. Such as the beginning is forgotten, such is life. Full Review

    I'm currently over 2,000 holes in and am still enjoying this. The holes get harder over time and become a nice challenge. Sometimes you'll hole in 1 a few but later holes you're sometimes lucky to keep it under 50 strokes. This game launches fast, is fairly priced, and fits what I consider to be amazing phone game.
