I still think that it’s and unfair game because it synchronizes all of the players but me and that’s unfair because the players that get synchronize are making shots that they shouldn’t be making like puts, when the flag goes up you are in line for the put but if it comes down you aren’t in line. But the players that are synchronized make the put anyway even when the flag has came back down and if all of you MF’s have to cheat to beat me that’s showing me just what caliber of people that you are. And I just wanted you to know that you couldn’t beat anyone if you weren’t synchronized. So I still say that it’s and unfair game to the ones of us that are just wanting to enjoy a game and not be all stressed out because of the cheating that’s going on, so to inform you and the makers of this app that they should be reported to the gaming association for running and unfair game that will cheat you in all kinds of different ways. Like changing your shots and synchronizing players that are buying things. And all of those player’s that synchronize aren’t nothing but cheaters and I would hate to that I had stoop so as to cheat on a casual golf that’s suppose to a fun game because if you have to synchronize to beat a player like me that doesn’t never get to synchronize. And play me fair and don’t synchronize and I will beat you and as to me all of you player’s that synchronize aren’t nothing But Cheaters.
No in app purchases needed
I’ve played this game for over half a year now and have had lots of success and usually have better stats than my rivals, although I usually have worse clubs. I have never made an in app purchase in this game, so for all the people that claim you can’t win without in app purchases, this is false. I have days in which I don’t play well, but overall I have good and consistent success. I didn’t always play well, but then I took 2 minutes to look up the wind patterns for the different club types and immediately found more success. I can now consistently dunk shots with most clubs from most terrains. I also try to use as few special balls as I can and try to save them only for when I need one or can guarantee that I will win by using one. By doing this, I never have an issue with running out of balls, while also still winning many games. Overall, I think the most important thing to know is the wind patterns for the club types and by knowing these, there is no need for in app purchases.
DONT SPEND MONEY!!!!!!!!!!

Please , keep your money and spend it on a game that will at least not cheat you, don’t know which one that might be because there all crooks but this game has made up bots that are just tossed in the game. I was in the Global 50 that means the top 50 players in the world. I was 45th my friend that plays was in 36th another friend in 22nd and the guy I first new at this game was in 11th position. I went from 45th down to 50 in 1 Day the developer had made the game impossible to win at because he added a new level that everyone could not lose a game for a day are two that had a glitch. The next day people were logging on and couldn’t even win 1 single game the whole day and night. Then we started to notice players who were never in the top 50 just automatically appeared in the game. WADE if you are a real person then I’ll eat my words but this guy comes along out of nowhere starts at 49th day 1. Day 2 he’s at 38th day 3 30th, day 4 22nd, day 5 17th by this time I knew something was up then he passes my friend that was in the 11th spot so I messaged the developer and they have said nothing. This is what you deal with once you get to a certain point of the game and can’t win any more are if you get a higher level and get shut down by the developer
This game is addictive, unfortunately it does set you up to pay allot of money to succeed, the chest are junk gives you mostly club upgrades on clubs no one uses, and very little towards the popular ones, you keep wasting gems to open them and no pay off , even my helm club has maxed out yet I keep getting cards for it, also they set up the arena on some holes to be out reach on your top clubs, they change the wind so it’s towards you and hole can’t be reached or you reach on your 1st shot perfectly then your second shot is set up with an out of reach wind wasting hearts, , the kingdom is also set up for failure making shots impossible to make or you set up a shot perfectly the guide line shows no red and no obstacles in your way then you hit a branch or blade of grass that wasn’t in your shot set-up, if you can’t count on the guideline than what good is, I’ve written them several times with no response, but they’ve made the game frustrating, then there’s level 13 witch I don’t even like playing, too many billboards, they’ve taken golf right out of the game with that level more like a pinball game not golf, so I basically do the arena and tournaments, level 13 is awful!!! They definitely cheat you out of money with this gam
Still getting cards on my helm club , it’s maxed out with no upgrade available, why am I still wasting cards on this
Fun at first but then you gotta pay to win
Game starts out fun but to be able to compete with others in your rank you can’t win due to their clubs being way better. I’m at level 12 and every round I play is against some one with clubs so much better than mine it really makes no sense why they would still be on this level. So I ponied up $50 to buy more gems so I could open more chests but unfortunately it’s a scam because all the clubs you get are junk and not the good clubs you need. I believe mot of these players with the massive advantages are actually bots and not real people. Feel pretty ripped off at this point but I’m the dope who got suckered into spending money.
Update: after a couple more weeks of play, I have not played a match with a single player with clubs that are not far better than mine. I mean my clubs are at a level 4 and my supposedly matched opponent will have the same club at a level 7 or 8. The only way I can win is if they make a grave error. A draw will always give them an even larger unfair advantage than the one I already overcame just to get to a draw. I’ve managed to reach several hundred points into level 15 to only get beaten so many games in a row I will wind up under the 15,000 point range and go back to level 14. No matter how many chests I open I can’t get cards for the clubs I need to win unless I pay for them. So I say again, do NOT spend money on this game.
Frustrating algorithms (Rigged)
The game is not made to be fun and fair. It’s made to keep you on their app as long as possible, which is understood from a business perspective, but as a consumer I’m frustrated at the lack of fairness and integrity. They put you up against a “guest” so most of the time you are going against their computer. They give you just enough taste of winning so you can see yourself moving up in the game which means unlocking more clubs and courses. You are well on your way to getting the next course when they start sending computer opponents your way who have clubs that you cannot compete with and their strike accuracy is on point every time. This makes you frustrated to the point where you quit or are forced to make purchases with the hope of gaining a club/upgrade to legitimately compete. Another thing they should revisit is having the wind be the same for each player on any given shot so I’m not shooting at 9mph wind and they get 6mph. Feeling like you’re playing a game that is rigged and makes you pay to play feels like you’re being manipulated and deceived. Aside from the moral compass of the design, it could definitely allow you to play more interactively with friends and for more than one hole. But there’s no money in that. Be sure not to fall into a trap by making in-game purchases.
Golf Rival review
This game is really fun. It has good graphics with great amounts of detail in nearly every level. Unlike many of the other golf games out there, this one doesn’t Lag really at all when you are aiming up your shot to release, which has been my ultimate complaint with nearly all golf games like this. I find it to be a great game, that is entertaining and easy to just start and go. I only have one complaint. And that is the putting. If my ball is 2 ft from the cup it should be an easy putt with pretty much 0 chance to miss, but when my ball is 50 ft from the cup, the putt should be difficult, the accuracy gauge should be shaking and it should be a challenge to make it. It isn’t fair that I hit a great shot 2 feet from the cup and my opponent hits a shot and it just barely stops on the back of the green and he’s got a 50-60ft putt and drains it no problem. I seriously believe this needs to get addressed and changed because it has me not wanting to play anymore just because what’s the point? I draw 85-90% of my matches because the game just makes it to easy on the greens. Please consider what I have said and suggested for the game, I believe every player would agree with this no doubt
By Word Cat
The game could be very good but what really makes me angry is that we all hit losing streaks but we should not get locked out of a level that we’ve already conquered because we’ve gone below the levels amount of trophies you need to be in that level. Once you’ve conquered a level and reached enough trophies to open up the next level like you got enough trophies to open up level 8 but if you lose two or three games when you’re not that far in you immediately go back down to level seven and level 8 is locked again. Please change it around so that whatever level where in if we hit a losing streak we do not have to go back down a level. If you reach level eight and you hit a losing streak leave it so we stay in level 8. Making us go back down a level does nothing but make us angry and annoyed. If were allowed to stay in that level even though we go below the amount of trophies for the level we’ve already hit that amount of trophies and open the level it should stay open. It should be for every level I’ve just mention level eight because that’s the level I’ve had a little difficulty on but It should be for any level that once you open it it should always remain open.
Not that great
Don’t believe the reviews it’s clear they’re either fake or paid or something else. Just read them why would they be four or five star when they are dogging on the game. When you get to a draw scenario, where whoever is closest to the pin wins, your opponent could get a wind of 8 mph going slightly against them, but then you’ll get a wind of 10mph going directly against you and you’ll have zero chance of winning unless they shank it. Kind of unfair if you ask me.
Update: decreased to 3 stars as the wind can somehow inexplicably shift. You can compensate for a 10mph wind and your lay line will show that you’re going to land on the green even with compensation, but then you can still somehow land far short. Rigged.
Update: decreased to 2 stars. The farther you get in the game the more it becomes pay to play. Draw scenario shoot-outs become more about who has the best club than who is the better player.
Update: down to one star. It’s painfully evident that you’ll gain distinct advantages if you pay to play. After reaching out to the creators they insist the wind and shoot outs are completely fair because the wind is random, but will not acknowledge that if the wind is going against you on some holes you may not even have a powerful enough club to even make it off the tee to the green whereas your opponent could have a max club.
I’m having fun playing this game. It’s kept my interest for the past few months. I like that it’s free, I can play head-to-head with people in real time, compete in tournaments, and the Kingdom and Arena areas add a nice extra amount of competition in a different way than just playing a single hole vs someone else or a computer.
Two suggestions that I think would make this a 5-star game:
(1) Put the hole name and par on the screen DURING the hole. This info only pops up when the other player is added and sometimes appears for less than one second. It would be nice to see this as I’m playing a hole.
(2) Add a driving range. Just like a regular driving range, there’d be pins at various distances, and maybe the option to select wind speed and direction. It could be as simple as just being able to use clubs, or have the ability to earn coins, quest points, or have its own incentive system (like wolf coins in Arena). Just being able to try out new clubs before playing a hole or tourney when there’s something at stake would be a very nice feature.
Thank you for considering these ideas!
