Wind factor inconsistent.This can be a fun game to play and the graphics and concept are pretty good. However it feels like the effect of the wind factor is very inconsistent. Often a factor of 2 (taking into account the impact of the ball specs) has as much of an effect as a 6 or 7, and vice versa. I'm sick of making allowances for the wind (or lack of), only to have the first bounce of a 'perfect' shot land way off the fairway. If this anomaly is fixed, the game will feel much fairer and less rigged. Also it would be great if it was quicker to level up clubs - it takes far too long to earn the upgrades..Version: 2.2.1

Con Artist Developers GameYou’ll play for a while and might even like it, but then you’ll see it’s just another game that’s complete ruined by third-rate, money-grabbing, soulless developers who only care about the money and nothing else. Their moderators are inept, the games are rigged towards players who spend real money and the game is borderline-useless for continuing players who don’t spend much money. They might respond to this review by saying the games are fair blar blar blar, but they’ll be lying. Every game you play without buying upgrades (etc.) you’ll almost always - I recorded 15 of my last 16 games - be paired against paying players who have clubs at least two levels above your own meaning all but a full round of perfect boost shots will render the game impossible to win. Some holes are impossible even if you to hit every shot perfectly. If you are happy to spend a fair bit of real money, this might be the game for you, but in reality... it’s a game solely for the developers who made it as all they want is you money and they don’t give a hoot about anything else. They are the Donald Trump of App Developers. Ignore their reply to this review, it’s almost certainly going to be a complete lie..Version: 2.37.3

Could be betterI was gonna give it 3 maybe 4 stars but the support system gives you zero answers. Matchmaking is terrible, I constantly end up playing people who have thousands of games of experience and have maxed out clubs and the best balls. Some of the courses are also just ridiculous to where an eagle is impossible and a birdie is almost guaranteed. It gets old after a little while, this game doesn’t favor skill and playing things the proper way. Like there’s apparently terrain in some maps that you can’t see unless you zoom in on it that will throw your ball all over the place. On most shots it’s really just getting lucky because you can’t be sure of where the ball is going. Has so much potential but they just make it to where you have to pay more to get a little less. You can’t just buy coins with real money, you have to buy gems to purchase more coins. Coincidentally the biggest gem purse you can buy is just not quite enough to get the biggest coin purse. Also clubs is just pure luck in what you get from a chest and upgrading them is expensive. Also there is no practice option in this game and with the way it works playing matches you and your opponent put up coins and the winner takes it all. One unlucky shot and you’re screwed. The developers seem to not have much interest in making it better for players, just adding more things you can buy.Version: 2.2.6

Worst gameDo not download. Completely unfair once you get involved. The math algorithms they use to choose your opponent is skewed. You’ll play against players who have thousands of games played compared to your hundreds, which gives them a huge advantage when it comes to clubs. I’d give it 0 stars if I could. Most unfair game I’ve ever played. Just awful..Version: 2.31.0

Beware of this game.So the reviews are so high for this game because they give you a bonus to write a review, and most of the the reviews before a player learns how awful this game is. Forget game play, yes it's easy to learn, and putting is way too easy. The real issue with this game is far more sinister. You get matched up to play other players in one hole shot outs. Simple enough. However the simulator decides who you should play an. Your clubs also have an accuracy level which ebb and flow according to the simulator. This means if the game thinks you need to loose they can influence the game by pairing you against someone who is destined to win because of their accuracy, or pair you against a player with clubs you can't beat etc. and if the game decides based on your game play and how often you play that you are a sucker who has a high chance to purchase advantages well then you are screwed. You will just get hosed shot after shot and lose match after match in new and mysterious ways. If you contact the support staff they are always helpful and respond. But if you identify to them how the simulator influences the outcome to try and frustrate you to the point of buying something, they will remain silent. This game is a sucker bet for suckers who are willing to pay money to be king of an imaginary world. Good luck if you play, at first you will like this game, then you grow to abhor it and never play again..Version: 2.1.0

Don’t waste your moneyIf you want a good game to play then YES this is a great game!!! Sorry scratch that!!!! This was a great game when it worked, support is run by 10 year olds who are no help what’s so ever, I’ve the best iPhone going on the market at the moment and there answer to my question when I asked them “why do I get about 8/9 times during a game a white box saying where trying to connect you??” So there answer was DELETE ALL YOUR APPS and tidy your cache!!!!! So I’m buying a expensive phone for 1 app!!!! How pathetic of a response is that!!! My answer to that is we’re spending an absolute fortune on this game and instead of pocketing the proceeds/profit that your making every month PUT IT BACK INTO THE GAME, give us proper answers to the problems in the game, if your stuck and don’t know how to fix it the just say that instead of stupid idiotic answers, as I said this can be a great game again if the put the resources back into it and then my be so many players won’t leave the game.Version: 2.37.3

Don’t Waste Your TimeUnless you’re willing pay for the lame membership you won’t win, game is full of cheaters that Golf Clash does little to police and the games are clearly skewed to favor those willing to shell out big bucks their overpriced membership. If you want to waste money this is the game for you, if your looking for a fun affordable or free game look elsewhere..Version: 2.39.3

Game is fixed .It’s a good game but after playing some 2500 games and becoming quite reasonable I notice big inconsistencies with certain players stats . Not only do I regularly meet players with low birdie and Eagle count playing 100k games but they regularly hole outrageous shots in high wind from long distance and hit shots into banks perfectly deflecting the ball . I would say they are bots as they never speak and are there to take your money . Many times in shoot outs I find myself double the wind of the other player . I can pretty much guarantee it as well as when the player holes out with a long iron or rough club. So obvious but fortunately I have sense not to spend any money on this game like a lot of other mugs ! The world is so dishonest these days , anything for a buck . Take this game for what it is don’t get angry like I did and flush your phone down the toilet in anger when your perfect shot stays short by 3mm and your Bot opponent Holes from behind a tree from 300 yards from a red line shot ..Version: 2.38.0

Good fun game, could improve.Quite an enjoyable game. I like it although I would like to be able to add people you verse so you can play together all the time. I played one person for over an hour, just rematching, was fun, but would like to be able to play that same person whenever I hop on the game & sad that I couldn’t add them. Maybe if we could have more phrases to use or type to communicate with the other person if they like to chat about the game also, like strategy etc.. I feel it’s a bit ‘rigged’/‘dodgy’ but.. Still enjoyable 😊.Version: 2.2.3

Used to be goodSince last update all I get is #901 errors on nearly every game and system freezes and I have to exit. When reopen it says rejoining last game and then errors again. Please fix bug or I will have to uninstall..Version: 2.1.6

If you purchase!Be very careful when you purchase. They charge for other things you didn’t even buy!!!!.Version: 2.39.3

Too hard to advanceI was really enjoying this game. Happy to spend a little bit of money on it, but I find it annoying when 90% of games go to a shootout and you can lose due to varying wind conditions or a ball rolling instead of bouncing on first ‘bounce’ Would happily give 5 stars if you didn’t lose your entire entry fee if you lost during shootout. Maybe half entry fee back if you make it to, and then lose shootout. Would have me playing far more and make it more enjoyable..Version: 2.1.8

Absolute joke. Poor poor game. All fixed!Hi Playdemic. Thanks for the automated response that you ‘coincidentally’ sent me about 2 weeks ago through the ‘support’ section of your game, word for word... spelling mistakes and all! I have renamed COUNTLESS shots with ‘support’ or ‘playdemic’s at it again’ and so on... you get my gist. When I do get a response, it’s practically you guys saying your game is perfect and there’s nothing wrong. I did have a nice fella once and out of the 8m+ I’ve lost to your ‘un-rigged’ game, I got about 30k back. Thanks for that! I wonder why so many people complain about it being rigged? Hmm... maybe because it’s rigged? Just a thought. I have videos from when I’ve screen recorded entire games. It’s plain to see it’s rigged. I’ll be sharing these so others can make their own assumptions. You are a greedy, greedy company who couldn’t care less about your players, only your customers. They may seem like the same thing but there’s a HUGE difference, and you guys make that obvious within your ‘game’. No one likes a pay to win, and this is one of the worst I’ve ever had the misfortune and frustration of ‘playing’. Potential to be such a good game, if only you didn’t brown nose people paying!.Version: 2.2.2

Rigged TournamentsAlright so I am beginning to believe that the tournaments are rigged in some form. The reason I am saying this is because of my position I was given in both tournaments. I have been pushed out of the top 50 once from rank 18 by players with the exact same final score of -16, I played the first tournament early with many hours left and all the players after who scored the same landed higher than me and pushed me out of the cut. Next time I tried what other players did by waiting three hours until the qualifying round was over. I played my holes and finished with a -16 again yet I was still placed at 49 and got pushed out by 3 more players finishing with the same score. Even though about 20 players all had the same score I did not advance. This is frustrating to me and I think it’s unfair that all players who tie do not advance or have a tie breaker event. When players with the same final score can push another player out then something needs to change how tournaments work. Why is it setup like this? Do players that spend money get perks for placement? Does win ratio have something to do with it? Please explain why ranking happens like it does during a tournament. This is a major flaw and in my opinion will drive away players who this happens to. The game is fun but tournaments are crap and the system needs to be revamped..Version: v2.1.9

Majorly flawed game!The developers of Gold Clash openly admit to your opponent sometimes being a replay of previously played games! I wouldn’t have a problem with this if the replays were of random ability, however, for instance, I’ve just played a 100k game with a replay opponent who eagled a par 4 hole which just doesn’t seem FairPlay to me! Even if you manage to match this on the playoff hole your opponent will very often get a hole in one or within a few inches of the hole! What the developers fail to realise is that they would make more money and retain more customers if they made the game fair! Finally, please make the game run smoother especially as it’s a game that requires timing and skill which if it glitches just before you take your shot throws that out the window! You also sometimes get randomly thrown off their servers and your game is forfeited! If I’m lucky enough to get a response from the developers please don’t say it’s my internet connection or phone as I have an iPhone X and unlimited fibre broadband and to back that up a strong 4G connection. Rant over!.Version: 2.2.3

Don’t waste your timeIt’s a complete money grab. They will always match you against someone way out of your league so you lose. But don’t worry they offer you a discounted money offer once a day where you can trade your gems (have to buy or it will take forever to get anything worth while) for the money you just lost. if you complain They have a full script of “how they match people so it’s fair” that they will copy and paste to you. They say it’s based off total trophies earned so people can’t purposely dump trophies to get easier matches, but you will always be matched up with someone that has the same current number of trophies but yet they would have played over 40,000 games with a ridiculous 65%+ win average(which is unheard of in this game) and maxed out epic clubs so there is no chance of winning. But don’t forget if you spend real money you can get discounted fake money that will be gone in 3 games. All in all don’t waste your time and don’t waste your money.Version: 2.39.3

Terrible. Not worth your time.Doesn’t take long to discover the deficiencies in the game. Continual disconnection issues causing forfeit of game and coins. Can’t upgrade club’s unless you pay for more jewels or coins. You can hit the same shot with the same power, same ball and the same accuracy as your challenger but either land 20 meters short or long. Not an even playing field. Not worth your time unless they address the negative issues within the game. Terrible terrible terrible disconnects constantly and takes your coins. Customer service is all about blaming the customer for the bad connection issues. Don’t waste your time or your money. Players should give Pro Feel Golf a try , no disconnection problems at all and it’s not set up to play inconsistent or take your money through connection issues. PRO FEEL GOLF try the App you won’t be disappointed..Version: 2.2.3

Solid, but one MAJOR drawback...Tho game is solid, easy to learn, hard to master. Leveling up clubs and earning coins keeps you coming back. It’s satisfying. With that out of the way, let me address the reason I quit this game for months. If you go on a losing streak, it is almost impossible to get back up to your level that you were playing at. You get absolutely no coins out of chests and you have to play many tours below your real tour just to get you coin count up. And if you lose, you usually have to go another tour down. It’s an endless cycle that takes MONTHS to get out of. Coins cost a lot of gems (unless you do the 3 stake special which is a lifesaver.) and are hard to get at lower tours. Also when you get to higher tours, everyone will have really good equipment and balls. If you don’t want to spend money, you will always have the disadvantage. Speaking of spending money, this gave is the definition of pay to win. It’s almost impossible to compete at the highest tours without spending a decent buck on the deals that they give you giving you balls and coins. If you don’t want to spend any money like me, good luck. This major flaw almost ruins the game if you go on a losing streak. Other than that, gameplay and mechanics are solid. Just hope you have a big wallet or don’t run out of coins..Version: 2.30.1

Needs improvements!!!The putting is great - in fact it's the best of this game. It allows easy movement of the ball and I get most puts in. However, the drives off the tee, and the second shots either onto the green or into one of the hazards leave much to be desired. The player has no control at all of direction or speed and I cringe whenever I'm told I've hit a ”great” or a ”perfect” shot as every single time I have landed in the water, in the bunker or over the cliff! Of course, when my opponent gets those comments they land on the green, and either in the hole or close to it. Tonight I had three “perfect” shots in a row and landed out of bounds in the pink trees each time. I should have had some way of controlling the shot after the first disaster so I'd get a chance to play the hole out. It's extremely frustrating!!!!!.Version: 2.2.3

Seems good at first - doesn’t last so longIt’s a shame because this app has potential to be an actual good golf game for the IPhone in terms of gameplay , graphics, etc. Perhaps the gameplay is fun to play around with at first , until you begin to understand the matchmaking for H2H matches..It is so painfully obvious to everyone who plays this game more than a few sessions that they are matching you up -not with actual live players- but with bots/recorded versions of users from previous matchups . It’s not so bad that they do this (although it is annoying), but the worst thing is that they also are feeding you these bots according to how you’re doing in the game and how many coins you have . It’s clear that they want you to keep winning and playing well enough to be excited to keep playing but then also won’t let you surpass a certain point (without you spending money on the game first). Their algorithm for matchmaking clearly is keeping you right where they want you . The developers may respond below to state they don’t do these things .. do not believe them. Try for yourself and you’ll see , you’ll find that you will go on winning strEaks, then losing streaks , then winning streaks , then losing streaks . But you’re really just spinning your wheels . They are determining where you stay with their matchmaking algorithm. Stay away !! Waste of time.Version: 2.1.8

Good funAverage game. Have played for a long time now, wind and competition is all over the place. Games take a long time. It’s also quite glitchy. Golf games have been around for a long time so disappointing that these guys can’t get it right. Games is also massively directed at spending money but for this it’s just not worth it. One star..Version: 2.39.5

Don’t be fooledGolf Clash, is very addictive and it wont be long before you’re paying money for what you initially think is a free app. To actually have real success in the game and compete as you get better and get better, you need to purchase gems, and upgrade your clubs. For me I was spending at least $10 a week. Luckily the last straw was when they would not refund $7.99 for a purchase I made. The purchase to accept on offer you get when you lose. Except that offer disappeared when I purchased the gems. To date I’ve spent $100’s on the game, but to them that was irrelevant. It is now deleted, I will save money otherwise wasted & my family life will improve. Thank you Golf clash; they care more about money then their customers, so making my decision easy..Version: 2.38.1

Don’t bother, match making is terribleWhile playing beginner level you get matched against someone who has better clubs and better golf balls. These players should NOT be matched against beginners..Version: 2.2.6

RiggedI have played now for a couple of months on and off and I am sorry to say this game has issues, one time I was in a shot out, I went 1st and all was perfect the ball was just about stopped right next to the hole then suddenly with the green being flat the ball shot of at 90 degrees, extremely fast putting me like 10yds from the hole, the other player hit a poor shot the ball was going way to fast to be near the hole and suddenly it stopped as soon as it hit the ground with no roll no nothing right next to hole. Sorry this is not right I will not play a flawed/fixed game like this. On another hole I chipped towards the hole nicely all said perfect, so it slows down to a snails pace and trickles into the hole the ball had actual gone from view into the hole when it popped back out and went 10yd’s from the hole. There are so many incidents like this, the other players, I meant bots ball hitting the sand and bouncing on as normal, landing in water so you cannot see the ball and the shot played as normal no penalty, the list is endless of faults..Version: 2.37.3

Not worth the effortThis game is not worth the time or effort. It’s impossible to advance in. Every time you level up, you wind up losing 90% of your games. The matches are rigged to the point where it’s not fun to play anymore. The matchups are unfair as well. Save your energy and find a different golf game to play. For example, I leveled up to pro from the rookie level and have proceeded to lose 17 of 20 matches. The computer players make impossible shots into the hole every time. Since my level up I’ve lost over 1 million coins and over 100 trophies. Avoid this game at all cost. If I could rate this game a 0 or lower I definitely would UPDATE: still unfair game play. This game will turn on you in a blink of an eye. It’ll let you get maybe 1 or 2 wins in a row only to make you 5, 6 or more in a row. It forces you to keep playing to make up what you lose only to lose more. Since my last review my total loss is now 150+ trophies and 1.5 million in coins. Don’t bother with buying coins, leveling up, or upgrading the clubs because it just makes things even worse. Now on top of all that the stability has suffered greatly since the last update. I get kicked out of the app as I’m starting a match if I have played 1 or 2 games already. How this game has a 4 star rating is beyond me. Also don’t bother sending them any feedback about it because they either never respond or give some lame cookie cutter generic answer.Version: 2.33.0

Pay to winStarts off fun but you soon realize that if your not willing to pay money you are at a disadvantage and it becomes very hard to beat players that are willing to spend the money..Version: 2.39.6

Totally rigged *AVOID*The designers build you up as a player with fixed results by playing you against phoney opponents and gifting you wins. Then, once the frequency of your playing establishes you as someone likely to be persuaded to spend money, they introduce a familiar pattern of losses causing your playing resources (gems and coins) to become depleted to the point where should you wish to continue, you have no option but to buy more. This cynical approach becomes visible after you have begun to climb leaderboards, progress to rookie 2 or 3 level, and the option to join clans has been introduced. After putting up with constant software crashes and screen freezes your reward will be a prolonged series of losses against ‘expert golfers’ who despite having similar stats as your own will play you with mathematical precision leaving you wondering why suddenly every other player can land within a yard or less from the pin when previously they were averaging 10-15 yards as standard. The developers have done a very poor job of disguising this, which just goes to show that without advertising revenue from third party organisations, apps like this will always take the shortest possible route to your wallet as soon as they detect any pattern of regular use or addictive behaviour. To the makers of this app I say ‘Gentlemen, may you forever be followed by shoe flies..’..Version: 2.2.6

SherylI started out playing this game abd went frim strength to strength absolutely loved it, I got almost to expert and then had a really bad day it didnt matter what i did I could not win a game, and slowky went downhill everytime I played, went from close to 800 cups in professional 3 to can hardly get to 200 cups currently at 140 odd and now in rookie 3 abd have to jeep spending money ( of which im often charged double or similar for) I have noticed when I hit a perfect shot in the middle of the fairway it ends up in a ridiculous spot, or the game locks up just when im about to beat the opponent, so it appears I dont have any hope of even getting out of rookie 3 now as I lose like a dozen games in a row. I love the game but am losing interest fast..Version: 2.34.0

Ok game but last update screwed it upEver since the last update, the needle is jittery as all heck for many people. I play on iPad but it’s not just an iPad issue. Can rarely get it to land on perfect where we used to most of the time. Half the time you guess it’ll stop dead center and doesn’t anymore. The update about a week ago killed it for a lot of us. We still play on occasion but not nearly as much as we used and many are talking about quitting altogether. Too bad the developers won’t address the problem, like they nearly never do. It’s always “check your connection” or it’s always on the user’s end. What else would they say? Former IT employee here and my network is fine, router is fine, nothing running in the background, unnecessary apps turned off and I ran a speed test and I’m blazing fast. Too bad. Good game gone bad. But hey as long as most people don’t bring up the issue, and the Man from Uncle keep buying their specialty balls with their real money, why fix it if you’re them? Funny that they religiously offer new and exciting new balls that you can PURCHASE without fail and right on time, they’re quick to release those, yet when it comes to fixing a problem they created, all you hear are crickets. Great game (way back when). Too bad. You really had something. We WERE hooked..Version: 2.35.1

Rigged and UnfairThis game was fun in the beginning and then turned very sour. It's unfair because of the ever changing conditions on the same hole. What one player has is most definitely not what the next player gets with and a major advantage to one of the players. The controls are not consistent and the continued difficulty in the holes no matter if you're a lower level or higher level is increasing daily. Some holes are just impossible and highly unrealistic no matter what your skill level or in game level. It seems the more money you spend on this game the more the "odds" are in your favour. The upgrading of clubs is ridiculous, unless you're willing to spend money on the game, and that's the only way to get ahead in this thoroughly rigged and biased game. I don't rate or recommend this game at all! A pathetic joke for a game!!.Version: 2.1.0

Cheating?So been playing this game for about a month or two...fun game for sure BUT...I believe it’s rigged - or people cheat...somebody explain to me how - for example - a shot can bounce twice in the lip of the cup and then stick there...can’t say that’s a coincidence...then maybe the ball will round the hole say 3 times then lip out...really? Or let’s say there’s players out there that can somehow slow the arrow on the shot scale (whatever it’s called) so that it is easier to hit a perfect shot every time...or maybe the continuously rolling ball -my personal favorite btw - where somehow a ball that has already slowed to a crawl can somehow keep rolling (not on a hill) to provide your opponent with a closer shot to the pin than YOUR shot that’s .55 (or closer) yards from the pin on a draw game...and conversely - your ball will be speedy across the green then stop like it hit flypaper - again in a draw game or to take it to a draw game where inevitably - odds are you’ll lose - that is UNLESS you’ve made a purchase recently. All in all - it’s a fun game - but there are definite - identifiable inconsistencies with ball flight, roll out, and windage effects that will frustrate the heck outa you as you try to win rounds - especially if you haven’t purchased much - or not often enough..Version: 2.37.3

RiggedLike any good app it’s addictive and designed to make money if you just play for fun it’s fine but know that some games are fixed to try and get you to spend money.Version: 2.39.9

Is this game rigged?Good time filler and worth playing.............. BUT.. Like many other apps , can't help feeling you are playing against the computer . No matter how good you are the games invariably end up down to the wire. Many times I have been beaten by someone making an atrocious shot to the green and the ball miraculously goes in the hole. I also think some of the players are fictitious and are merely computer generated. April 2021. This game is getting worse, and many of my clan mates agree. You are often matched with players who have loads more games under their belt and thus have much better clubs. The shot needle is often erratic and jerky. The game favours players who spend large amounts of money. I don’t object to buying rewards periodically, you can’t expect to play for nothing but GC developers are greedy and make millions from this game. Am considering deleting this game and trying other golf games!! Most of their favourable reviews are from people who haven’t played for long. Let’s see if they change their opinions when they’ve played a bit longer🤔🤔.Version: 2.39.6

Don’t waste your time.There is absolutely zero point to playing this game unless you want to sink a bunch of money into it, worst part is the first couple days of playing are fun until you start playing against only people who have sunk money into it and can’t seem to win anymore. Hard pass..Version: 2.39.3

CheatersWhat is with people and their maxed out clubs, over a thousand trophies and still playing tour 1 and 2. Are you that bad really that tou have to compete against people that have half the upgrades. Losers.Version: 2.39.3

Bad connectionIt’s a great game, I really enjoy playing it, it would be 5*- howeve the connection from New Zealand to this game is poor, and it’s very frustrating when you get ~30s to take a shot and half of that is taken away with trying reconnect you.j.Version: 2.37.3

ShameCan’t fault the game play but it is just another one of those games where players skill has little impact (you can look at the majority of players records and they all hover around 50-55%). The game is very cleverly structured so you win a few and lose a few, orchestrated by who you are paired with. Given the pairing rating and the fact most players have a 50% rating this means it is almost impossible to progress without spending money (yes, I guess there will always be outliers to this). I don’t really fault this business model as most people know what they are getting into, it’s just such a missed opportunity for what could be a very good game where you could play through a career etc, I’d happily pay £4.99 for that sort of game, but instead we are left with a game we’re you can only play against other people, there isn’t even an off line mode. It’s just a sad indictment of the game industry, it won’t change unless people stop spending their money. There are noticeable occasions when you are paired with someone so much higher ranked as you that winning is virtually impossible as it is harder to make a mistake with decent clubs than it is to hit a perfect shot..Version: 2.2.1

Ok game but...It’s an ok golf game, and has potential to be a lot better, there’s just some in game issues and such that I feel could be corrected. 1. Proper rules. No stroke penalty for water hazards??? I myself and others I’ve played against have been unfortunate to hit in the water but don’t receive the stroke penalty that is a basic rule of golf. 2. Being able to choose what club I want. You’re basically stuck with whatever club the game decides you need. Want to power out of the rough with a wood or other club and try to get more power or distance? Too bad. You’re stuck with your crappy “rough wedge”. Players should be able to pick whatever club they want to use, and take the risks of the shot from there. 3. Speaking of clubs... this is where the pay to win feature comes in. If you want to pay outrageous amounts you can buy better clubs for better “skills”, but if you want to be a casual player and earn cards, good luck and be ready for a grind, while you’re waiting for cards to upgrade, pay to play-ers are going to beat you with their bought skills. Making your card grind longer. Either need to be able to open more than one cheat at a time, or have more clubs per chest. Number 3 isn’t that big a deal, but fixing to follow actual rules of golf, and allowing club selection would be huge factors for me to raise rating..Version: 2.1.0

FrustratingIt’s a great game for what it is; the tournaments are the highlight. It’s just a shame that it seems very, VERY unbalanced. For instance you’ll win 5 or 6 in a row then you’ll lose 6 or 7 in a row. The biggest sign that it is obviously unbalanced is when your opponent lands in the water and it says the ball is in the bunker, then they proceed to play that next shot and put it straight in the hole. So that’s it’s biggest down side. Another example is when you’ll hit a ‘perfect shot’ off the tee 330 yards down the middle of the fairway and your opponent gets away with a ‘good’ shot into the rough. Your next shot is ‘perfect again’ onto the green, your opponents erratic over power shot gets a ‘hooked’ and lands in the rough a long way from the green. You putt your ball for birdie, they then hit another ‘good’ and somehow find the hole although the wind was 9mph left and their shot was ‘good’ to the left... The inevitable then occurs when they beat you in the playoff... Play this game if you have control over your temper....Version: 2.2.6

It’s pretty, and that’s it.This game has great graphics. Unfortunately, that’s about it. There is no realism to the game play. Putting is easy, as are chip-ins (anyone that actually golfs knows a lot of practice and skill is required to improve odds, and it’s still not easy!). The matchup system is terrible; it huuuugly favors pay-to-win. First, the matchup system doesn’t compare you on skill, gear or experience, but rather just on trophies (which are easily manipulated). This means you’ll often get paired up with someone with clubs and gear that significantly outclass anything you have, making it impossible, even with perfect shots, to even tie your opponent. As if that wasn’t enough, they’ll sometime also pair you up against recorded games rather than a live opponent. No, they don’t put you against a recorded game where the opponent didn’t do well; usually one that eagles! Support, sadly, is equally bad. However, it seems to be the usual farmed our support that doesn’t actually read about the issue experienced, so it’s to be expected. Value for money is minimal. You’ll burn through a minor investment in an hour of playing, and then get matched up against a series of people that outgear you, or bot games, to conveniently strip away anything you’d gained unless you invest more. On the plus side, as long as you’re paying in, things seem to go well, and the matchups aren’t as bad. It’s a bad pay-to-win scheme covered by nice graphics..Version: 2.34.1

Glitches or cheating players?Having enjoyed Golf Clash for many months, played 1000’s of games and spent a decent amount of money on it, I can only give it 1 star! Why? I played a shoot out hole where my opponent went first and hit to 30 yards, I then went and hit my ball right next to the pin. The ball sat next to the hole as the flag fluttered and continued to do so. This can happen when an opponent player logs out as they know they’ve lost. You just wait it out and it goes to win screen. Apart from this time it doesn’t, a minute goes by and out of nowhere it says I’ve forfeited the game because I’ve lost connection and I need to log back in. This simply wasn’t the case, I’m on my home WiFi. Bang, I lose 2 million coins. I believe this is either an incredibly frustrating glitch or players have found a way to time loging out and loging back in to force their opponent to lose connection. Essentially there are cheating players out there. I contacted player support and tell them the situation and ask them to look at my last game. No response in 5 days. To not respond to a customers issue is treating them with utter contempt. They’re either aware there’s a problem with their app or there is cheating going on and they refuse to acknowledge it. When you’ve invested time and money in a product you deserve better. Avoid..Version: 2.2.6

Gets worse...This game starts out fun and gets you sucked in. I really enjoyed it. But then it seems to change, you can get so far playing for free but then you seem to get worse. The opponents are always at a higher level than you, club upgrades and ball upgrades are too hard to get.... unless you pony up the cash. The wind and other effects are not consistent, the game is rigged against those who don’t spend extra cash. I suppose that’s what it’s all about... I did love it initially but now will delete it through frustration..Version: 2.2.1

Fun game, bad if you’re not willing to spend money.The game itself is fun and the graphics and playability is good. The game is designed for you to spend money. Most games are designed like that but this one you don’t really get anything for it except maybe a chance to get cards to level up clubs. However, many people who I’ve spoke to say they believe the developers have programmed bots into it so that when you play for more money you lose and in turn they hope people go and spend real money to get gems and coins. It’s a form of gambling. There’s no real structure to who you play. Some people have the best equipment so they will have a huge advantage in a playoff. I’m about to delete the game..Version: 2.38.1

BrutalHorrible game.Version: 2.39.3

Fun, but definitely rigged(READ THIS)Like my title says, the game is definitely rigged. I did some research online to confirm my suspicions. Definitely look at your opponents stats every time you play someone. You will almost always see your opponent around the 50% win rate, give or take a few percentage. You will never play someone who has a win % of above 60%. Isn't it a little odd that no one is that good? That literally everyone you play is right around 50%. Other thing I was told to watch: I have used the exact same level club, in the same wind, that my opponent used, lined up just as they did, hit PERFECT SHOT on the bullseye just like they did...my opponent landed near the hole, my ball went sailing passed and in to the rough. I've seen this on several occasions. Now I don't understand algorithms and all that, but if everyone was winning all the time and lost infrequently, what would be the reason to spend money on the game. Then you could keep playing for free. You can't honestly believe the Devs want that. I urge everyone to do your research. Google issues or problems with the game. You'll see the forums and the remarks. Then you'll start seeing what they are talking about in the game. Good luck. Save your money for something else. It's an addicting game I get it. You'll want to keep playing(I spent money to keep playing). Spend your hard earned money more wisely..Version: v2.1.1

Game was brilliant but no moreI’ve been a regular player of this game for the last 3 years and has been brilliant. Unfortunately they have made recent changes that made the game actually worse. A new tournament system has been devised to try and level the player level to match up against each other. In principle a very good idea unfortunately they have based it on your overall tourney results instead of your tournament record at a specific level. For example I have won some tourneys at rookie level but I have been placed in the hardest level for pro and expert level despite me only playing at that level a handful of times and playing badly hence I stay at rookie, I tried expert this time to see if the tournament system was fair and it’s not I was easily out played and did not even make the cut, there is no point at playing tournaments until this is fixed. Also with the new tournament system you can draw a hole, I asked if this would change the individual win percentage and was told it would not. Since playing the last tourney the win percentage has dropped as any draw are being treated as losses. So if your interested in keeping a high win percentage then this is another reason to give tournaments a miss. Overall the game was brilliant a 5 star but now it’s a 1 star due to playdemic trying to change something that did not need to be fixed. Despite concerns of many players playdemic help chat just give you the same generic message. Very poor service.Version: 2.39.1

DONT SPEND MONEY ON THIS RIP OFF!!!I’ve been playing this for months and it has never let me go further than qualify. There are bugs where you can’t see where your ball will land and the same hole with the same ball and the same wind gives COMPLETELY different outcomes. When you have a glitch in the tournament and ask for help, a week goes by and they say ‘We can’t see your replays’ I SAVE THE SHOTS AS FAVOURITES YOU MONEY HUNGRY A**HOLES!!! I have spent more than $600 on this unfair, biased game. I’m playing out what little money I have and quitting. DONT GET SUCKED IN!!!! DON’T PLAY THIS GAME!!!!! I’m not a disgruntled kid, I’m an adult that thought this was a fair game- Turns out I’M the fair game. They will pull this review but I hope I save just ONE persons money. Cheers.Version: 2.2.7

Unfair advantages.I really enjoy this game a lot. It is fun lots of parts are realistic. Except when people hit out of bounds or hit it in the hazard. They don’t gain a stroke and it still creates an opportunity for them to actually win without the shootout. It happened to me and he hit out of bounds, I wasn’t able to hit the green on my second. He drove on to the green and made his put and I lost the round. AND HE HIT OUT OF BOUNDS. There should be a penalty stroke for that. That’s how golf is. And also, this game can’t give me an even matchup. I have no idea where your matchup system came from because I am rookie two, and I play people who have gold banners and blue banners consistently. Which is why I don’t stand a chance. Their clubs are such high level where they can hit the green in two with ease due to their very high upgraded clubs versus my low level clubs which allows me to not make it in too. The matchmaking is so unfair, and it makes me not want to play when I have to go up against people who have well over 3000 matches where I’ve only had maybe 300. The matchmaking needs to change and if I’m a rookie two it needs to match me with rookie 2 players. I could care less if the search takes longer because it will help make the game more fair and less stressful and annoying. Please fix your matchmaking! I cannot stand how unfair it is. Please I enjoy the game but not when it’s always against people who are three to four tiers ahead of me..... that isn’t FAIR..Version: 2.30.1

What a jokeJust deleted the game after being beaten in a shootout when I was 1.55 yards away. Do not believe the random opponent screen at the start of the game is real your playing against a bot. As soon as you accumulate money in the bank you start getting ridiculous results. I have had so many hole in ones against me it’s ridiculous. The chip Ins are not realistic. Also the wind seems to change for the positive when your opponent plays. I cannot believe that the random opponent can find so many opponents that are ranked much higher than me. I must be the only player at my level and I’m over 500. I cannot find an opponent under 600 to play against. Do Not waste your money on this game until it becomes fairer and you are not playing against a bot..Version: 2.37.3

Great game with some flaws.This game is so awesome and so frustrating all at once. It’s readily apparent when you play that there are algorithms built in to make you keep losing or keep winning which is extremely annoying when you just want to play a game of golf and you get absolutely destroyed by a dude just because he has better clubs. The playing field is not level, people win because their clubs can drive farther which is garbage and not skill-based. Also, physics don’t make sense half the time. A 2 mph wind can sometimes act like a 9 mph wind for some reason. You can also putt a ball as hard as you want right next to the hole and it goes in every single time. Also, if there’s a GIANT green you should be able to use a wedge and not have to putt twice. You should also be paired up with players that are AT YOUR RANK +\- 15 instead of +/- 100 like I have seen. Another issue is that last week, I legit lost 400k gold for no reason. I think this may be a flaw with the new update but also the reason I will probably be deleting this game shortly. I like consistent, fair, and fun games that physically make sense to me. Also getting money taken from me like that is not ok. Developers should be looking into fixing that and compensating devoted golf clashers. Also I’ve lost a fair amount of money because of a “connection lost” error and it just assumes I forfeited. Crazy..Version: 2.33.0

Golf clashThis game is addictive and has a good structure of difficulty as you rise though the ranks unfortunately there are a few issues for those looking for consistency, wind speeds affect the ball differently every game and once you are out of coin you are screwed. The clubs are inconsistent also with values eg power, accuracy, not matching. I’ve now deleted the game waste of time 😊.Version: 2.33.2

Cheaters gameComputer players not real people and money grab. Pay and you stay. Don’t waste you time with this one.Version: 2.37.1

Very InconsistentThis game is designed to make you spend money. I was stuck in tour 2-5 for a year and suddenly went on a winning streak where I got 10 million coins. After 2 months I was back down to 10,000 coins. It is very frustrating and considering a lot of other have the same complaint, things better change or I’ll find a new game..Version: 2.37.1

Real cash, fake game.I never put real money into computer games. And in this game I never made it to more then 200 trophies. After getting frustrated by making exactly the same shots and not getting close I put some real money in and started winning. Then I didn’t put real money in and started loosing??? So I put more real money in and yes, I’m winning again, and then I started loosing again, any body see a pattern here??? I would suggest you let players earn there rewards, not buy them. This is a game of skill not luck, and players with the biggest bank account should not be winning..Version: 2.2.3

Completely outclassed against other playersThis game caters to players that spend real money. If you want to just casually play, be prepared to go against other players with the best clubs and the best balls. I don’t suggest anyone support games that run this way..Version: 2.37.1

Class experimentGames start off fun, but as we found with a little experiment we conducted with our class, if you try playing making zero “ in app purchases” then you’ll notice you start losing more. Students that made “in app purchases” had an average winning rate of 68%. Students that didn’t make purchases rose to an average of 64% before they all (14 of them) hit a massive losing streak losing everything and dropping to a 42% average. Good learning experience of how games are rigged and how algorithms are used..Version: 2.2.6

Totally rigged!This game is totally rigged into making you spend money. I’ve played now for around a year and spent some money on it. About a month or after spending you suddenly go on a sequence of losses caused by shots not going where they previously would. Either the wind doesn’t blow as expected, side spin not doing anything, bounce/roll being different to normal and you get matched against players who have played 10-20 times the number of matches than you have meaning they have better clubs. I also suspect that there are bots, since I’ve often been matched for a $3000 game against a player with $50-60 million career earnings and tournament wins, why would a player like this play a $3000 game? I’ve got to the point where I can predict from a couple of losses when the game is in this state and stop playing for a few weeks. When I return everything is back to normal but I’m bombarded with offers to purchase gems etc. I would much rather pay upfront for the game and have it work without the obvious rigging. The makers say it isn’t rigged but anyone who plays for a while will see it, those who spend frequently will succeed..Version: 2.31.0

Punishingly unfair on new playersSort the matchmaking, for heaven’s sake. How can a player with 30 games under their belt ever hope to compete with an opponent who has played over 20,000 games and won over 15,000 of them? You will get matchups like this frequently, and they are heartbreaking. Even if you manage to force a shootout, you cannot compete with the accuracy and spin-control of your opponent’s clubs. This game needs to match players based on games played, not win rates or trophies or any other abstract measure. The shootouts also need balancing. Force both players to take their shots with the same club, thereby making it a true test of skills, not a test of clubs. Even then, the obvious “scripting” of matches, where a shot by your opponent should land in a hazard but miraculously misses, or your shot, aimed and hit perfectly, somehow drops short despite a tailwind, take away from what is actually a really well thought out game. Get rid of the scripting, and stop penalising players who are new to the game, and maybe they will stick around..Version: 2.39.5

Inconsistent CrapJust want you to spend money. When you see no pic or a guest it’s a joke....it’s computer generated. You can hit a perfect game.... then the bunker people who are in the bunker... constantly. boom they get best ever chip in from 10 miles away. No thanks Golf Clash. Look around, way better consistent golf games..Version: 2.36.0

Started great, now I’m MAD!First thing, this game is really fun, addictive and competitive! I love the premise of the game, its nice to finally have a golf game that’s free! I really wish there was a way to practice for free, and buying golf balls were cheaper! The amount that you get from winning isn’t enough to buy enough to compete with some of these people on here! It’s ridiculous, and very discouraging!!! I’ve been playing it now for several months, and now 4 times now I am playing fine and it mysteriously loses signal!!🤬 such BS cause I’m on 5G WiFi! So then either I timed out or my shot is screwed!! Then just recently I paid 4.99 for a “special package”, then again 4.99 again for a “special package”, TWICE I HAD TO PAY BECAUSE THE FIRST ONE MADE THE APP CRASH AND I DIDNT GET IT!!! 🤬🤬 So then just now today (February 9th), I paid 3TIMES for the .99 cent, single shot for a trunk. IT TIMED ME OUT TWICE IN 10 SECONDS!!!! Then on the 3rd one, the ball just stops mid roll and I lose!!🤬🤦🏼‍♂️ so now I have just wasted $13 for NOTHING!!!! I’m So close to deleting this app and just finding a new one or buying a PS3 game! So either the Developers need to refund something or give me what I’m owed! UPDATE!! Just As predicted!! I had finally won a couple in a row and built up some coin... welp now i lost 4 in a row and suddenly I cannot seem to hit the ball straight!!! What a BS rip off!! I want either a refund of my money spent or I want the stuff I paid for!!.Version: 2.1.8

Inconsistencies will drive you crazyI have been playing this for about a month now and while there is a lot to like about it initially I have reached my limit due to the realisation that your opponent is not greatly inconvenienced by hitting tee shots into hazards when you hit a perfect drive, and have now found that the wind effects some shots greatly and makes no difference to others, regardless of speed or direction. I’m done with losing ‘unlucky’ matches and have enough annoying things in my life without the unfairness of this game being one of them!.Version: 2.38.1

AMAZING GAME GET NOW FOR FUN ... BUTEvery turn you have is timed, which is fine. But sometimes the connection (even if your Wi-Fi is great) gets really bad and has to take about a minute to reconnect. That is also okay apart from the fact that while it’s reconnecting the time for you to take your shot is still going. This means if you are taking a shot and the connection fails you run out of time to take your shot and you will lose that shot meaning your opponent can easily win the game. Also sometimes by losing connection it forces you to forfeit the game. This means you lose coins. This game is super super super fun, and also hardly loses connection and is very very fast even though you are playing with people all over the world, it’s just the few times it does lose connection you could lose many many coins from it and they should change that. When it’s trying to reconnect it should stop the timer for your shot and if it completely loses connection you should not lose your coins. But honestly this is one of my favourite mobile games ever and everyone should get this game because it’s so much fun, I just wanted to put this review out there for the developers to fix this small problem that would change the game completely. In a good way. ⛳️🏌️‍♂️.Version: 2.2.3

Was fun at first....I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game and leveling up clubs and unlocking new tours, until it got to a point where the game lost its luster. While playing higher tours I noticed the wind in the game was almost never consistent. By this I mean the same wind for the same shot was never the same, even on perfect shots. I just recently uninstalled this game because of what happened on a perfect shot to get in the hole, only to watch it roll right past after seeing “perfect shot” appear on my shot. Another thing that I found frustrating about the game was the chests you open. Almost every chest I received gave me the same cards. I had multiple clubs that I did not want to upgrade that had 100s of cards waiting to be used on them. For my third dislike of the game, there is no way of practicing which would be extremely useful before you go play a tour that could potentially wipe you of your cash, causing you to either wait for a new chest, or pay with gems, or pay with actual money. These are the main reasons I uninstalled this game as it got to a point where it hit a wall and stayed there. And before you think “oh they just didn’t play enough” I was sitting comfortably in the mid 300s in trophies which is ample time to make a judgment call on a game like this..Version: 2.1.6

Just startedWouldn’t mind a practice hole for us newbies to use before the matches......UPDATE Noticed a few anomalies with this game but put it down to my newness to it but having taken note of others comments I’m beginning to see a pattern suggesting that it is a bit dodgy. Seems like whenever you are going ok in the beginners tour you will come up against an opponent well above your own achievements and get flogged despite their poor shots I.e. they get favourable wind conditions end up in the rough or a bunker time out once or twice yet still manage to draw or win regardless of whether you birdie,eagle or par a hole. And they always have superior gear. Can’t understand why my last opponent timed out twice before their first tee shot - they went first- yet send a screamer down the fairway when the ball and yet I don’t even get to see the details of which hole we’re playing par etc. needless to say I get beaten....as I said but suss and obviously the disappeared unable to rematch. No way would I recommend paying for upgrades.....shame cos it could be such a fun game.Version: 2.2.0

Terrible game. Don’t bother the frustration!After years of playing this game I would not recommend anybody start playing! When new courses come out they usually run choppy. Frame rate drops and arrow becomes almost impossible to time properly. This happens on an iPhone XS so it’s not the phones performance that’s for sure. I have lost many chips to glitchy arrow timing and to lag outs/cheaters. The customer service says they care but usually just ships you a generic “Thanks for playing! Cya on the course!” garbage copy paste message and rolls on without helping you. If you want to continually sink money into this game doing buyback offers because of its volatile glitchy gameplay and 50/50 win rate for almost every player then definitely give it a go! I would stay away..Version: 2.37.1

Could have been such a good gameUsed to love this game but as everyone else keeps stating... you are forced to play against a previous played game which is always close to impossible to win, finding yourself with temptation to buy more coins . As playdemic will say “ your not playing bots they are all human” we know that ... but you do not take into account Human error and are not fairly picking random videos. So anyone facing several of these in a row ( to which when you have been playing this game as long as I have becomes obvious) it destroys any fun and faith you had in the game. If I had a problem also they used to answer questions , now I just have unanswered questions with no reply’s or when an answer finally comes it will be patronising like we have not got a clue what is going on. Disappointed as this was my number 1 game but afraid profits have taken over FairPlay . Asked to be refunded coins due to impossible matches consistently and would not even reply to me... joke!.Version: 2.2.8

Was once a Good gamePlease explain why a score of 21 under doesn’t get me into the weekend round on the ROOKIE group...!!!! Had enough of the cheats attacking this game. During last round had another ‘remarkable’ player get an albatross from a bunker about 200 yards away from the hole. This is with over 10 knots of wind and NOT a perfect hit - yet their ball sailed straight INTO the hole...!!!!!!! My previous review was 5 stars, now it's is less than 1. As indicated by many, many reviews you need to spend a lot of real hard earned money to progress beyond your 3. It's a joke, an abhorrent joke. It's rather strange how 'others' appear with in excess of 300 and 400 points when I play tours 1 and 2 and always 'win'...... Seriously what’s with ‘players’ having different and assisting wind. Also had a ‘player’ put a ball into the water on a par 4, next shot landed ON THE GREEN...!!!!!!!!!!! This JUST happened. Player put ball in sand a very long way from the hole in a par 4. Next shot is not a ‘perfect’ shot, does not account for the wind and is offline by a very long margin. Guess what, this ‘players’ ball goes IN THE HOLE ..... ..... how is this even possible...!!!! I am getting increasingly frustrated and annoyed at the ‘game play’ here. Seems a tad dodgy to me..Version: 2.2.0

Fantastic game dogged by issuesI’ve been playing this game for what must be 18 months. What’s described as quick fire golf battles is in fact a massively challenging and in depth game once you get into it. However there is a major drawback. Many players suffer from regular disconnections during games. This issue appears to be getting worse with time. In regular tour play I can live with this losing 1 game due to a disconnection is not so much of an issue. It’s when it comes to tournaments 3 round 45 holes that this becomes a real pain. One disconnection destroying days of hard work and calculation. What makes it even worse again is the company that own this game refuse time and time again to acknowledge the problem is with the game. They will blame your device, your WiFi anything other than the game or their server. This despite it happens to thousands of players using different devices, WiFi, mobile data and having no other issues at all with their internet connection. I’ve left this review and posts on the Facebook page as this is an issue Playdemic really need to start taking ownership of and stop blaming the user base..Version: 2.34.3

Here’s the truthThis game is very truly enjoyable it is quick to play so if you have five minutes to kill or three hours, it is a true top pick kind of game. But and here’s the but, when you start getting more into the game it nearly forces you to spend money and I’m not talking about 99 cents I’m saying like five or ten dollars. The reason why is because when you start playing more they put you against people who have played the game for nine year. you have normal people clubs at average levels and then your up against someone who only plays the game who has 9,000 games under their belt, who has the most ridicules clubs that can drive the whole course in a single hit. So the only way to get better is to have better clubs, the only way to have better clubs is spend money on chest for a slim chance that you will get a better club or some way to make you club better to even just stay par with these people. And it’s not like I expect to win every game or anyone should expect to win 100% of the time but when you lose two dozen straight games due to unfair match making and you lose nearly all of your coins and the few ways to get coins is, you guessed it spend another five dollars or getting it for 30-60 second adds that only giving a you enough to play the most minimum game. 2.5 stars fun game. But unfair 80% of the time..Version: 2.35.1

I want my golden shots or my money back!!!!I just bought 6 golden shots. Everything works fine until I take my shot and then apparently it can’t connect to the host!!! And I still lose a shot because of it!!!! 😡🤬.Version: 2.2.1

DisappointingThought I would give this game a go even after reading the mixed reviews. Have been playing for a few weeks now and was beginning to wonder what the other reviews were talking about as I was having a great time slowing building my experience and points. Then I made the mistake of entering a tournament. I played not one hole against someone with similar experience score than me, but instead had to play, and lose, against people who had three and four times mine. Good way to put people off your game!.Version: 2.33.2

No more tourneys ... took winning away from individual holesLatest update has taken away the ability to earn game coins for winning holes in a tourney. Took away the tie breakers. As the tourney format was my main way to earn $$$ to stay in my bracket and advance, the new format has removed that. I would have previously rated this Four stars prior to this update because the game play is enjoyable..Version: 2.39.0

AnnoyingThis game is good but it feels rigged, somehow I always seem to be playing someone who is way ahead of me with such better clubs, you need to match players more closely, I used all my money to upgrade clubs, so I had to start from beginner to get money, then the next one, then the really annoying night course, finally enough money to play the level 4 game, £3000 entry, boom I’m ranked against someone way better and my money’s all gone again, The putting is ridiculously easy too, I do a perfect shot say 4 yards from the pin, great, my opponent is miles away, still makes the putt, it really is too easy, you need to make the putting harder by only giving a rough guide, what’s the point in playing like a legend and your opponent plays shocking but makes the green fringe but you know there going to make the putt, Actual gameplay is pretty good, just sort the matching and putting out and I’ll give it 5 stars.Version: v2.1.2

Unlike Golf Rival, opponents can be BotsI’ve sunk thousands of dollars on Golf Clash, I have my own clan, I have over 3,000 balls fancier than a kingmaker, tons of gems and cash but the bloom is off the rose. After winning 1,100 games, I feel these days as though I’m playing a computer bot and not another person. when I got to Master 2 level the competition was appropriately fierce and I got relegated back to Master 1 level where it’s been clearly easier for months. But now after losing 14 games in a row over three straight days to opponents who never made a mistake, and never made a comment, and I’m stuck in the relegating 90’s, I and others I play with now assume Golf Clash puts players against bots at leisure. Tonight I’ll let myself go back to Expert 3 and maybe, if I still get paired with fake great players who make zero mistakes, I’ll find myself dragged back to Pro and Rookie in protest. Golf Rival always puts me with human players, and I infinitely prefer that. Attention Golf Clash: give us the phrase “be nice”. All of us have played against real Clash opponents who use comments in a mean fashion, i.e. laughing hysterically after we miss a shot. We players could then actively flash the ‘be nice’ sign rather than passively turn the chat off. And if you want income from us, stop feeding killer bots to us high rollers, if we stop playing, we stop buying....Version: 2.39.3

RubbishThis game is terrible. If you’re a golfer who plays real golf be ready for more mental torment than you cop when playing in real life. You will be unfairly matched with players far better than you, you will suffer with worst conditions like wind, bounce, etc than your opponents on the same hole at the same time. Often you will hit perfect shots and the result will be in a bunker or water or rough. I’ve played this game initially then got rid of it out of frustration. I came back to it only to have my frustration levels taken to a higher level. It is basically a very unfair game. But the owners and developers won’t care... its about the money. Give this game a miss and find something you might actually enjoy..Version: 2.2.9

Gameplay manipulated to get player to spend $$$After playing this game for several months at a friends request. here's what I discovered. gameplay is fun and easy and courses are very well done. Be warned , this is not a standard pay for play game... after the fourth series of golf courses you will be matched with players who are significantly better than you with much higher gameplay experience and better clubs . you will lose a considerable amount of games and be encouraged to spend money to of course better your golf clubs or buy golf balls to improve your chances . unlike other pay for play games you cannot do that you can only buy chest that give you random opportunities to get the best clubs which seldom pay off . The only way you can accumulate these clubs is to play a considerable amount of games . i've gotten a few customer service reps with a little character and integrity to admit that they don't gauge competition very well . This is where the majority of players fall off and stop using the game. Customer service is useless in this endeavor as they will read scripted responses to you in efforts to get you to continue to play and tell you that it will improve. My best advice is play the first few levels and then move on from this game the moment you need to spend money. I've watched a lot of frustrated players and young people spend money in the hopes of advancing and enjoying further gameplay through better courses unfortunately that is not the case..Version: 2.38.1

AlgorithmHaving played this game for quite sometime I feel qualified to submit this review based upon personal experience. As a new player the developers lead you into a false sense of accomplishment. The algorithm make wining matches extremely easy. This quickly changes and the matches become increasingly difficult. The only way to win and subsequently move up in the ratings is to purchase in-app golf balls which allow you better control when playing. Once you become addicted to that, the developers change their strategy and offer so-called deals (gold coin and jewels chests) allow you to win matches against your opponents. However once you have exhausted your supply of jewel chests and gold coins the algorithm changes and the matches which you previously won so easily suddenly become near impossible to win. Should you decide to submit a ticket to the “help team” they will strongly deny this and offer excuses as to why your luck has suddenly changed. If however you decided to double down and spend more money to buy those bargain deals of gold and jewels you will continue to beat your opponent(s). This is not someone crying into his/her cereal but based upon observations gathered over the course of several years of play. Don’t take my word for it, see for yourself. Just be ready to “pay to play” and keep your wallet nearby if you want to be a winner in golf clash..Version: 2.38.1

Customer serviceThe customer service is horrible and won’t review your shots. They close the window and won’t speak to you again. This game is crap. Don’t download. They purposely make you lose so you can buy their bundles packs and gem. If you download this game, you’ll regret it in the long run..Version: 2.39.3

Really!!! 4.5 more like 2.5Who are the developers trying to kid by saying that the rating for this game is 4.5. Get your head out of the sand and read what the critics have written. Wouldn’t give it 1 star, but you have to give it 1 star to write a review. The biggest scam ever. I played the game solid for 2hours just to see how bad this game could get. In that time, 9 times it had my opponent chip the ball into the whole.....1 time my opponent was 169yds away and in the rough.....2 times my opponent chipped into the whole from the bunker over 100yds. Yet the game never allowed me once to receive a chip in. In one of my shots the ball circled around the hole twice before it decided to go 40 mph away from the hole. On numerous occasions my ball looked as if it was going into the hole then all of a sudden speed up and go past it. The only thing I can say about the developers of this game is they must be junior developers and have not been in the profession for long. Seriously get your act together. I have read other reviews and how you can rate the game so high, when the reviews do nothing but say how appalling this game is... I think the rating true to form is well below 2.5 and that’s being generous..Version: 2.2.0

Great appEnjoyable game - but the further you get in the game it’s more apparent that you’re playing recorded opponents. It takes the gloss off the gaming and leads to periods where it’s nigh on impossible to win. I’m sure this must be to do with trying to get increased revenue but it’s ruining the fun in its predictability. Shame..Version: 2.38.1

How obvious can it be?????????Where to start with golf clash? The game is great as a whole, but the overall blatant pay to play is absolutely ridiculous. Where in any ones mind is it fair when your opponent has a wind factor on the ball of 1.6 and when it’s your turn the wind miraculously went up to a 7? Was there a sudden summer thunderstorm that brewed in the 38 seconds it took for your opponent to take his shot? I have read and read reviews on here and they all say the same thing. GET REAL PLAYDEMIC!!!! We all know that the game wasn’t free to build, it costs money to maintain servers and ad updates etc. Regardless the game is “free” to download and “free” to play. Bullsh#t! I have purchased gems that one are absolutely ridiculously priced and played awesome for a few days, wind on my side win streaks, opponents randomly make bad shots. Then it starts, one loss, two losses, three losses. Coin is gone gems are advertised like infomercials on a Sunday! All I ask is level it out, make it fair, it’s a game it is supposed to be enjoyable. It’s not supposed to make you want to write a surreal review telling the makers of golf clash to.........well I will leave that for the rest of the 100,000’s of your customers that feel the same way! I would rate this game a 5 star on the concept of the game. I would give it a .5 on the management and disregard for fair play for in app games. It’s frustrating!!!!!.Version: 2.35.1

Don’t waste your time or moneyWas fun for about the first day. Then it became quite clear that the game favors those who open their wallet. Countless times I have been matched against players who are way ahead of me in terms of trophies in some cases up to 200 more. I could put up with that if it weren’t for the extremely unfair conditions that the wind produces. Effects different players totally different that are using the same ball🤔. Add that the the different effects on the ball I have watched my opponent drive past the hole only to have there ball magically spin back to the hole when they have imparted no spin at all on the ball I then follow with my shot and apply back spin on the ball to only watch my ball continue to bounce past the hole and off the back of the green🤔. I have now deleted the game after losing 20 games straight to ridiculous circumstances. Pathetic from the developers.Version: 2.2.2

Frustrating fun gameFun but extremely frustrating game! Not spending actual money on it only gets you so far. It doesn’t give me what I need in chest to upgrade my clubs so EVERY opponent I play instantly has an advantage against me because everyone I play has superior clubs. They hit further and more accurate. Also, it’s extremely annoying that rough irons hit just as far as long irons and in some cases, fairway woods. So you don’t really have an advantage if you’re more accurate. This alloys people that just have more advanced clubs to hit it as far as they can and still reach the green with you froo OK m the rough or sand. And in a lot of cases, it’s easier to chip in off the green than it is to putt! You’re almost better off hitting the ball to the fringe or in the fairway just outside the green. And I wish there was a practice mode and offline mode. Something that allows you to go practice the courses so you don’t jump up to the next level and waste you “money”, trophies and so forth and get to learn the course.. an offline mode would be nice. My job takes me places a lot where I don’t have connectivity whether WiFi or data. Fun game but extremely annoying and frustrating (especially for the reasons stated above)..Version: 2.37.3

Fun game but frustrating as hell.I recently started back playing this game after a few years and it is very fun and addicting for sure however....there are a few things that drive me up the wall. 1. The physics are NOT consistent! On shootouts the physics seem to change and I’m not sure why. If it were a shot during the match and I used the exact same amount of power and put up a perfect shot it would land on the green, no problem. However during a shootout it either falls just short or goes careening off into the woods. I’ve lost countless matches due to these flawed physics. 2. I also wish they would slow more time to line up the shot as I’m moving the target once I go to lift my finger it jumps so I have to keep readjusting which often causes me to go off track in situations where I could have easily chipped for an eagle or birdie. If they could just fix these two things I would be so happy. I’ve been playing for years and I am consistently top 5 or 10 in my division when it ends so before anyone says it...it’s not just me not knowing how to play. 3. We need a practice feature and a driving range!! Give users a chance to get better at your game and they will play more. I hope someone reads this and takes my review seriously..Version: 2.33.0

BrokenNew: try checking the profile for the players at the top of the global ranks. The game crashes. You can check profiles for other players to see their win % but you can't look at the top ranked players. Rigged game. Hopefully they are breaking some laws here because I'm going to report this... Just like every other game...you can only advance so far before the game turns on you. The matchmaking is broken, I'm literally in the second tier of ability ranks and I get matched up with players way more advanced than me. My clubs are level 2 and 3. Theirs are level 5-6. The chests don't even hold enough coins to play a round...the "visual" graphics are off from the "actual" graphics. You can use gems to unlock new clubs but they charge you 10x the amount of gems if you haven't unlocked the club yet. So the higher tier clubs cost 500 gems if you haven't unlocked them yet but drops down to 50 after you've received the club. It's definitely a pay to win game...if you buy gems you can buy different balls which can be manipulated beyond forward and backspin. The best ball you can buy can turn the ball almost 90 degrees to the side. The game is fun...it is...but the fact that all of these bugs still exist after they've released new content begs to ask the question...why do they still charge players money for ANYTHING until the game functions 100%? I bet that "pay us money" button works 100% of the time doesn't it?.Version: v2.1.1

Steals from customersMy dad is retired and disabled. My dad loves this game. It reminds him of when he was able to play golf. He even pays to play with the in app purchases. He does buy gems and takes advantage of special offers. He truly enjoys playing. But this game has doubled charged him multiple times. There have been in app purchases that he didn’t make or didn’t authorize. They charged him and never gave him what the offer was or gems, etc. When he has complained the company they said it’s not their fault it’s ITunes. ITunes says its not eligible for refunds. This app has stolen money from him multiple times. He has used ITunes gift cards and also credit cards. The ITunes cards he is just out of luck with. He can go to the credit cards and get his money back. But honestly, what a hassle. He would have to get new cards and it affects his credit. But the moral of my rant is; This company is a bunch of thieves. It saddens me that this game brought him so much joy and he can’t play it because he can’t afford all the “extra” purchases. I really hope your company can figure out a better way and stop stealing from innocent people. Here’s a tip... maybe you could make it a subscription. Like $9.99 a month or something and you get a new course, a club, some balls, gems, and coins. In these trying times, for those sheltering in place, or my dad who can’t physically play and loves this game you can turn this into a positive..Version: 2.37.3

Glitches galore!!I used to love this game but over time have found myself becoming more and more frustrated with it. For instance I just spent £4.99 to buy 600 gems which would then enable me to buy coins to compete in the tournament. Now bearing in mind I have a good, stable Internet connection. I had lined up my shot in the shoot out and drove the ball with one second remaining. This should be plenty of time as I have seen people take shots with zero seconds on the countdown clock. But as I watched my ball travel through the air for a few seconds the 'Out of Time' message flashed up and I lost the shoot out and consequently my coins. It's really NOT OK that fans of this game are spending there real hard earned cash only to be robbed by glitches in the game. Glitches which really should not be happening in a game which is so well developed. The amount of money rolling into the developers pockets should negate these glitches. More money should be spent sorting these out rather than spending it by putting snow in the trees! The bottom line is I'd really like my money back! But I won't hold my breath.....Version: 2.1.6

Fun to playGames is really good except I don’t like the leveling up clubs I have a few that say max level but they still give them to me in chest an it means I still struggle to level up other ones they really need to make it so when a club is Max level you dont keep getting heaps in chests so annoying..Version: 2.2.4

FalseRestart a few times and you’ll find you play the same name and photos every time. Sometimes dif name but same photo. This kind of scam should not be allowed.Version: 2.39.3

These people are scammers!!!Had to put 1 star to send review but i wouldn’t of put that star in if i didn’t have to Like some of these reviews i am also very annoyed with this game and the people that are supposed to help!!! Everytime i contact through settings all the answers i get are all writen in the help menus so really the people on the other side dont actually help!!! And as for the wind and latency and stuff i agree with alot of these reviews saying its rigged because i have just lost a 3million game through this latency thing when i have an excellent connection.. and the game doesn’t save the shot because u didnt technically take a shot as time ran out so you cant prove it so they wont do anything and i have been told that the wind is completly random... so how have i just had 3 games in a row that gave my opponent straight forward wind but my wind went sideways... if it was random it would be different every shot... and after reading more and more revoews my thoughts are exactly the same its not just me it keeps happening to its anhell of alot of people so DONT PLAY THIS GAME AND DEFINITLY DONT SPEND REAL MONEY ON IT AS IT WILL NOT GIVE YOU ANYTHING IN RETURN APART FROM FRUSTRATION!!!! Also playdemic wont care if you need help they will tell you exactly what you can already read in the help menus!!!.Version: 2.1.6

Good golf bad experienceThe game itself is great but recent update has let the marketing boys and girls off the leash. It drags you in to collecting the chests, coins, club improvements ( mostly for clubs you’ll never use), tokens and now emojis and chats. If you’re not careful you’ll spend as much time on the marketing games as you do playing golf. They even tell you you’ve achieved an award but when you try to open it they want minimum $15au. I understand they want to monetise it but I don’t like the way they’ve gone about it..Version: 2.39.5

Good to start with then down hillThis game is decent to start with, win a few games build up a little. But once that ‘honeymoon’ period is over you will just be cheated constantly so you have to pay to stay up there. Fictional ball movement is one, where it goes nowhere near what the wind is saying, wind can be going forward you’ll end up short, can be going sideways yet you’ll drop into the rough before your marker, yet some random opponents will be chipping in perfect shots from the bunker 130 yards from the pin not even affected by the wind. This game boils down to who pays the most and doesn’t say a bad word about the game. It’s all a little coincidental after I messaged them the game just got even worse for me, they clearly mark your account and just cheat you out of every game you okay, easy shots that you know you’ve been making time after time are now unbelievably so far off it’s not even a thought ‘oh must of played that wrong’, it’s time after time after time so it’s obvious that I’ve had a marker out on my account to cheat me out of everything. No wonder people stop playing this. Don’t bother at all.Version: 2.33.2

FixedAbsolutely no doubt in my mind this game is fixed towards the people that make in game purchases. Been playing for 6 months, never made a single purchase, slowly built up my coins. I get to the big fee games.. wind is not the same as my opponent, latency in the game, unrealistic bounces. Today I have lost 4 games on the trot due to the game just closing and when I reopen it I’ve lost. Poor, so angry about this I’ve put time and effort it and it’s clear that the game favours the players that spend money in the game. I hit a ball into the sand on the shore it says ‘out of bounds’ the opponent hit the ball into the water and I swear to god the tide went out. Beyond poor. This is not to mention, CONSTANTLY being matched with players 2/300 trophies more than me, better clubs. But the worst part above all else, I hit perfect shots and it finds extra speed to roll into the rough/sand/water unrealistically, opponent hits into rough it rolls extra onto fairway, I’ve just played my last game against a player who’s shot bounced out of the sand and onto the fairway... this is a physical impossibility. So annoyed with a game I had enjoyed up until recently..Version: 2.2.2

Clans Ruined the gameIt used to be a fun game, but everything changed when Playdemic brought in Clans. I was a consistent Top 20 and frequent Top 10 player with some Top 3 banners in Expert Tournaments across several accounts. There is always a trick to consistently drop an Albatross or Hole-in-One. With Clans it takes only ONE player to figure out the secret to a hole, then share it with the Clan, then it is who can “Copy and Paste” the best. Cancel the Clan concept or mix up the wind, so that each competing group of 100 players have thier own unique set of wind conditions, also change it from qualifying to Opening Round to Weekend Round. It is no longer about who is the best Tournament player, but about who has the best clan to create Tournament guides. Furthermore Clan discussions are a cesspool of vulgar language and bullying..Version: 2.37.3

RIGGED GAME!!!Fixed 4sure...if ‘they’ tap u 2 win, then u do...when ‘they’ need u to lose then u do...tricks, glitches to the point that it becomes so obviously rigged it is a joke...if u like to ‘try’ at things, then dont bother with this one; if u dont care, just want to waste time, and dont mind being manipulated by con artists, well then this game might be 4 you.STUPID, STUPID, STUPID game!.Version: 2.39.8

Really Enjoy this GameUPDATED REVIEW: My initial review is below but I’m updating it and knocking it down to2 stars from 5. I am so tired of this app crashing EVERY time I open it. I have updated it and restarted my device but no go. I also am tired of not being able to play the free Golden Shot when it comes available. I have contacted them but they act like it is just me and my connection, which it is NOT. Please fix this app!!! I have been playing this for a while now and I really enjoy it. I am not a golfer in real life so I don’t even try to compare it to that. No one should. It is a simulation, and a beautiful one at that - great graphics. For those reviews that say it is rigged, I beg to differ. Some games go well and others not so much but the fault is with my lack of focus or the other players great ability. My advice, start and stay on the easier courses until you’ve really mastered them. When you move up, watch the other player and rather than pouting from loosing, learn from them. I usually don’t spend real money on iOS games but when a “New Years” ad came up and I was able to get 200,000 coins for $9.99, it made it much more enjoyable. I don’t have to worry about the coins so much any more and can get better clubs and balls. I don’t worry about my status/ranking. I just enjoy the game..Version: 2.33.0

Rigged game/f-kc this gameYou can tell when the game has already been decided. It never fails suddenly the exact same shot, same club, etc... becomes a super club and gets way over powered or you set the ball to hit in a certain place and it does but hops way further than it was supposed to according to the guide line. Then if you watch the stupid ads for extra coins it's a very low sum and then it don't alway credit you for watching the ad. This game would have great potential if it wasn't rigged. Update/edit : stay away from this game! Every thing is F’d up from the ranking match to the way you hit the ball. This time I decided to screen shot the games so I could just make sure. Literally you can just about guess when you are going to loose. The game will match you with players up to a hundred levels above you, then you can have the exact same ball, same level of club on the exact same club. The ball hit hit exactly for them and not you. The wind variation is completely ridiculous. It always changes to favor the higher ranked player. The only time you do win is when you are the higher ranked player. You might win 2 or 3 games then loose the next 5. It absolutely has nothing to do with skill or luck. It’s more like if the game decided if your lucky enough to win. Bottom line I’m deleting the game and getting a different golf game..Version: v2.1.2

DumI playI’m game I win one game I win again so my win streak is two and then I lose 30 times in a row so how does that make sense.Version: 2.39.9

Still full off B,S! This game. From Jamie.As ever it makes its own mind up on how your shots turn out. I have played this game since it arrived on App Store I’ve also spend pointless money to improve clubs, this makes no difference on how your shots turn out. I know how to judge the wind having played many golf games and playing golf on actual golf courses but this is not a fair game at all. There are more times than I can mention where the shot has messed up and it wasn’t on my part after getting perfect on shot, and compensating for the wind. It should not drop you feet away from your guide line when you have over powered it slightly to compensate for a 1.4 wind against you, on the course it looked like it was short by about five foot from where the guide line indicated it would land. This tell me there is something wrong. I don’t like wasting money so I keep the game in hope that it will change but I can’t see it. There is something wrong here. I hope something changes with the game. So sad the game feels like this..Version: 2.1.6

This game is pay to win and the physics are broken.There are definitely some things amiss with this game. The pay to win aspect of it is the worst of all. It doesn’t matter how skilled I am, I will get beat every time by someone who can make physically impossible shots because their Kingmaker ball can turn 90 degree corners and roll 50 yards further than anything I can hit. There is no point at all to the upgraded balls and clubs other than for them to make money. Nobody cares about that crap. The people who have them just know how necessary they are to being successful. It would be far better to just use the same clubs for everyone and let skill prevail. The other thing I hate about this game is the consistency of the physics. For example, I’m hitting my driver off the tee with a 6mph tail wind. My cross hair before the wind is just on the edge of the fairway I’m aiming for. With 6mph wind and a little extra power on my tee shot, there’s no way I don’t get beyond that crosshair and onto the fairway, right? Nope. I land extremely short with a perfect shot and roll down into the water. Makes no freaking sense at all. It seems like no matter how well I play my opponent is either absolute garbage or impossibly good. There’s no regular players like me with inconsistencies. This game is clearly a rigged cash grab. Not meant to be fun for players. It’s meant to keep you spending cash. I refuse to do that so I can’t compete. I’ll find a different game. Go to hell developers..Version: 2.2.9

Good game butThis game is very fun but the wait times for chests are annoying.Version: 2.39.10

Garbage game caters to cheatersThis game is complete garbage. It is designed to cater to cheaters! Don’t give playdemic any of your time or money to continue to promote unfair play.Version: 2.2.9

RiggedWent from 500k in coins to 1 coin (not exaggerating) literally 1 coin in a matter of days I nothing has changed in my playing my clubs are only better however it seems I have reached a point where I am either playing some freak or a bot it was really obvious because they were getting amazing winds when they needed and perfect shots every time ... that was befor the last update NOW it’s not so obvious that I’m playing a super human but it’s obvious my ball seems to have a freakish roll that loves either hooking/slicing or finding sand traps and the rough how about updating the game so it just works well. There’s obviously some issue with this game that either can’t be fixed or can’t be hidden well enough I’m officially deleting this one and if you’re reading this I wouldn’t bother downloading it..Version: 2.2.1

Good, but frustratingBetty enjoyable game, but you are constantly pushed, pushed, pushed to to move up and eventually loses its charm. If you get into pro then the game is over in my opinion, tournament prices increase ten fold and you'll have to pay to get the goods your need. Players at that level are impossible to beat and seem like some freaky AI bot that can get the ball in from anywhere on the course. Wish you could roll back your player status and just enjoy the game without the pressure.Version: 2.2.0

Definitely pay to winOkay, so after playing this game for a decent amount of time and all of my knowledge of this game and how it works this is an honest review. I am currently at 2,211 trophies I’ve played over 4,000 games and I can honestly say if you’re not spending actual money for gems you will be far behind those that do so. When you get to the level I am currently playing at it is almost a necessity to do just to be somewhat competitive with other players (max level clubs, high performance golf balls) with some of these clubs taking upwards of 2,000 cards to upgrade and only getting 20-22 ( currently expert level 2) cards at a time if you are lucky enough to get that card from a chest it literally takes years to get the better clubs to the level of the players clubs that paid to buy the club cards or chests to make the upgrades. This is honestly my main problem with this game other than it forcing me to forfeit a match due to my connection and costing me millions of coins. But understandably playing on a road trip where service could be spotty is a risk. I’ve been playing this game for almost 3 years now it’s still fun but the club upgrading process seriously needs to be addressed. Other than that truly a great game..Version: 2.34.0

Very addictive for an hour then reality sets in....you NEED to spend spend spend.Have to give a mark otherwise a clear 0 star, Inconsistent , repetitive and UNFAIR play is the key to this game! You constantly get matched with opponents far more experienced and levels ahead who have top spec equipment, you stand absolutely NO chance against, earn no gold so are stuck in the lower leagues. This is for people where money is no object, there’s no fun or enjoyment unless you PAY PAY PAY. I’ve spent money as some of the offers are too good to pass but now deleted the game, they DO NOT respond to in game help queries. The one shot shoot out is a complete joke, your not on an even playing field by that I mean you should both have same equipment and wind speeds but no, your opponent has the top ball more accurate club and no wind, your turn and the wind jumps up changes direction and your club target is not physically strong enough to reach the pin how is that fair! So if you want to keep your device ie not smash it in anger and not be frustrated by the sheer amount of unfair play then AVOID this like the plague..Version: 2.1.8

Has a lot of potentialThis game has sooo much potential! It’s a fun, quick game, perfect for filling in time. However, there some issues that should be addressed so to make the game more enjoyable. Firstly, when the ball goes into the rough, it is an almost guarantee to lose the hole, unless your opponent also goes into the rough. Addressing this by allowing the user to gain additional distance out of the rough would be a huge bonus, and at least give you a chance of tying or even winning the hole. Secondly, you and your opponent should have different wind scenarios. That is, your opponent has different wind directions and strength compared to you with the same shot (as in off the tee etc.). By doing this, it would reduce the number of drawn holes and thus limit the amount of playoff holes, as they are not a good way of determining a winner. Anyway, I hope the developers can address these issues. It would make the game so much better, and it would definitely increase the playability of the game..Version: 2.33.2

Golf clash great gamePeople be warned you will have to spend money in this game to compete and my advice is if you are going to spend money don’t waste it in the game itself spend your money with third party like Tommy golf clash he makes advanced text guides which you can purchase through his website this will give you an even playing field with the rich and famous and when you start playing don’t rush through tours take your time play 250 games in each tour before moving to the next one this will allow you to upgrade your clubs and build your coins so you don’t have to spend money in game after about a 1000 games you should be able to hold your own in Rookie tournaments but be warned as you will play against sandbaggers with thousands of game experience and maxed out clubs who also purchase third party content from people like golf clash Tommy remember to be patient early go through tours slowly upgrade your clubs and do not spend inside the game and if you were don’t spend it with golf clash Tommy you can purchase text guides for every tour if you do this you will learn from the best and compete with the best especially in tournaments Hope this was helpful.Version: 2.37.3

Completely avoid at all costsThis games initially is very addictive but the more you play the more you notice game fixing with the aim of you spending more and more cash and developing either winning or losing runs so that you spend cash. The application of wind is inconsistent amongst opponents in the same game, player matching despite what the developers say is very poor, club upgrades is long winded and costly and you are pitted against opponents with much better clubs. I have personally spend over £200 on this game in a short space of time and would not recommend this to anybody!! As soon as I started to notice these things, as it was causing me to lose games for millions of coins and make complaints my losing run just continued continued despite changing the level I was playing at. Customer services also do not respond to such complaints which in fact acknowledges the point in my view. Avoid at all costs you will end up frustrated and much poorer as a result of playing this totally rigged game!!!.Version: 2.3

Don’t do itI’ve played this game for almost a year. I love it, however, it’s very rigged. When I spend money, I win. When I stop, you lose and lose and lose. I’ve tested this theory multiple times without fail..Version: 2.37.1

Unfair Match UpsFantastic game but the way the match ups are made is totally unfair. I’m always playing opponents who have played thousands of more games, and therefore have better clubs etc. makes it very difficult to have a fair game, especially on the longer holes. If the developers made the match ups fairer, this would be a perfect golf game.Version: 2.37.3

Good GameI feel it’s necessary to update my review of this app after having several hundred dollars invested in it and numerous attempts to have the developers correct the “well known” problems. When you report an issue, you get a canned response and or asked to have patience. For now, I would NOT recommend this app until its developers fix the issue making it crash. The ONLY exception to this recommendation is if you go into it knowing NOT to invest any money until again, they resolve the issues with it. I would have given zero stars but its not allowable. I will, come back and update this review if and when they fix the issues with it and they can figure out how to offer TRUE customer service and this especially to those who have supported them with our hard earned money. For now, my best recommendation is to look elsewhere for an app like this. Further update to the above review after 9 months of attempting to play what could be a great game. I would HIGHLY recommend you LOOK ELSEWHERE for a game to play and where you will need to make in game purchases. You can ABSOLUTELY FORGET getting ANY response from their “help” staff unless you enjoy being called a liar or you like getting the same canned responses. There is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY Playdemic will EVER admit they are having either server issues or when there’s a glitch in the coding and even if you sincerely attempt to be helpful, you find yourself wasting your time. Good luck and hope to see you in another golf game..Version: 2.34.3

Sadly, Still RiggedSo, they have gotten a lot smarter about how they rig the lose cycle but it’s still there. In fact, they have been called out on it so many times that they block the word “rigged” in any form from the chat feature yet, they don’t block any other words to include profanity. I have a 5G connection and am running Netflix on my tv while trying to play this on my phone. I have a 30Mbs connection, am less than 10ft with direct line of sight to my router which is upgraded, and the game continuously glitches on the swing meter whenever I have too long of a winning streak. Furthermore, I’m only able to earn $800K in game coins before the losing streak begins and takes me almost all the way back to $0 no matter which tours I play in. Honestly, the graphics are great and when it’s fair play, the game is really fun as well as challenging. It really is a shame that they try such underhanded tactics to get you to pay money for the game. There should be other mechanisms in place that would give money spenders a leg up instead of punishing everyone who doesn’t pay. If they were that worried about it, they should just charge for the game outright, but keep it fair. It’s truly sad and it’s why I’ll continue to use this game as a convenient time waster but absolutely refuse to give them any of my hard earned money. Cheaters shouldn’t prosper in my opinion..Version: 2.34.1

So far so good...Played a few different golf games, this one has a lot of there good points & none of there bad ones.. as more reviews come in all the updates will only but improve the app.Version: 2.1.0

🤮So many cheaters on this game play people played 4000game have more than 1500 holes in one and more than 800 albatross. You can’t compete against that.Version: 2.39.3

Definitely RiggedI read in one review that support wrote in a reply to a player that said there is some luck and some skill. I would have to say that it is all luck. I'm well over 500 trophies and have made it well over 600. But what happens many times is you may win about 5 or 6 in a row, then you'll lose about 10-12 in a row. I have other friends who have played this and agree with me that it is rigged. If you are one to take games seriously, then this is not the game for you. This is one where you will pull your hair out in frustration when you thought you hit a perfect shot and it does go in. Would recommend WGT Golf instead. Much better golf game and more realistic. UPDATE: I have come back and really wish this had a zero star rating because that is what this game deserves. Definitely a rigged game. No question about that!! I have seen at least three or more shots that were fixed. It amazes me that when someone plays really good and for some reason can drop one hundred points in a couple of hours. RIGGED!!!!!! Several of my friends also have played this and all have said that it’s rigged. UPDATE AGAIN: Still a lousy, rip off game. Just went to play, tried to hit the ball and every time I did it would switch back to aerial view. I tried several times to hit the ball and it kept doing the same thing until I timed out. Rip-off!!! Don’t waste your time. This was the last straw. This was the last time I am playing. Warning to all: DON’T PLAY!!!!!.Version: v2.1.2

AddictiveWatch out this game is seriously addictive. After pro levels start it gets a bit slow to upgrade clubs unless you want to spend spend spend of course 🤩... that’s why it’s a 4* not 5* rate from me. Really fun little game..Version: 2.2.6

Rigged and plagued with bugsThey say it’s not rigged, but that’s a massive lie. The support centre dribble the same stupid script because playdemic are just too lazy to fix the real problems. The course and graphics are great. When the game works, it is really good. It’s a pity it takes so long to get an opponent, especially during tournaments. This in turn drags the game out and then becomes frustrating. Complaints seem to be about the same things from all players, but they don’t seem to get rectified. Instead they sugarcoat us with more dazzling graphics that just add more delay time to the game. You can go from a 4 game win streak to a 12 game losing streak for no reason at all. If you don’t spend money, it just takes too long to get anything of decency. In conclusion, the once great game is just slowly wrecking itself. And you the recipient of said game, are not cared about, just expected to spend more money..Version: 2.39.2

Avoid game freezes and throws you out of matchesI’m sorry to have to write a bad review. I had enjoyed playing for over a year but recently in the middle of matches or tournaments the game either freezes or throws you out thus you loose matches. The developers only reply back with best practices which I’ve followed religiously, which is very unhelpful, despite screen shots of evidence and detailed descriptions of problems. In total I’ve lost close to 30 matches and over a million in coins. I have been given some coins back 100,000 but still it’s ruined my enjoyment of the game. Recently all our clan points went to another clan and although the developers said it was a glitch and our points weren’t given to the other team they were !! so we lost out and has marred our fun. There are a lot of players from Asia who also use software to time you out of games again unfair. I am happy to re write a review if it ever gets fixed but for now I am not a happy player and would say avoid the app until better support is on hand. Your letting the game down playdemic ..... The only real playing issue is how expensive it becomes the higher level you get 100,000 to enter a tournament is silly as is 1 million !! Lower tournament fees are needed and bigger rewards for loyalty to the game because they make a lot from you buying in the store for gems or coins etc... I don’t begrudge you making money but you don’t get much back in return. Regards Mike.Version: 2.3

Rigged/FixedThis game is addictive.... Unless you are prepared to spend money then don’t get involved.... Me & a lot of friends have been playing between 12-18months, about 4or 5 of us were playing enjoying the game, playing in the 30 & 100 grand games, only one of my friends was paying for extra gems & some extra coins so that he could keep up with the rest of us by up-grading his clubs..... I was the 1st, sort of over the space of a week I went from having over 500 gems (lower than average amount) & over 500,000 coins & just about the same time they introduced ‘clans’ I went down to 1760 ( I’ve been down to single figure). Now I appreciate you can have a bad day, but when you’ve been playing for 18months you get to know when you hit a good shot & a bad shot I was averaging 51%, not anymore, I can hit a good shot & only have a vague idea of where I’ll end up. I’ve been playing people recently who are a member of a clan who have hit shots & they must be embarrassed...... I mentioned before 4 or 5 of us there was actually 11 friends of mine, there’s only 2 of us left, me & the lad who has paid money (he also formed his own clan).... It’s rigged, it’s fixed, you don’t suddenly start playing like a beginner.Version: 2.31.0

Rip off!!Do not make purchases on this app or you will be ripped off just like I was. When you contact support they cannot/won't help you and just send you to Apple who do not reply to you. It is s rip off app. Beware!! Also it's fixed so you cannot progress without trying to make purchases at which point you will be ripped off!!.Version: 2.2.3

They have lost focus on what people wantIf you are looking to get frustrated then get this game....it will piss you off regularly at how stupid a developer can be...it was good but they messed with it enough to delete it. Now they just want you to buy passes etc etc...as a game it's good...how its run is idiotic. Find something better to do with your time!!.Version: 2.39.3

Many many flawsOverall, the graphics and gameplay can be good, with the idea of deck building integrated into the game creating goals to win chests. However, the player can lose even when he is far better than the opponent. Luck is a huge factor in this game which takes the fun out of it. It often comes down to a 'nearest to the hole' shootout when you draw the first round, which is nearly always the case in this game. Consequently, the clubs different ranges means that some are better suited for the greens, such as jumping over bunkers and so forth, which makes it highly unfair and unpredictable. Some also has to go first which gives an advantage to the other player in the shootout. The wind is also very off, and can change dramatically between each player making it doubly unfair at times. When teeing off it is also hard to see the hole, meaning that you don't know where to position your shot on the fairway. And the roll of the greens are also tricky to comprehend..Version: v2.1.2

You guys are in troubleThis game is rigged. It has bot players which are blatantly in the game. If you don’t pay to win then you ain’t winning! As an app reviewer I find this game unfair to anybody not willing to spend hard earned cash. I’ve been reviewing your app for a few months now, I’ve found that you servers are flawed as the game is constantly lagging, no real help to people with complaints. I spent a little bit of money to see what would happen to me after a long winning streak, and of course my hard earned money I spent on some gems, coins and a chest were literally taken as I went on a huge losing streak, from 400k coins to 8 which meant using gems to buy more coins. I can tell anybody reading this that golf clash have a lot of court cases which could be used against them, I won’t name them as it could ruin them. If any of the golf clash team read this please get in touch with me as I would like my money back after it literally being stolen from me. If you feel this is an empty review please go and speak with the developers of game of war, I’m sure they would happily tell you about my review and court case against them. Happy golfing people DO NOT SPEND REALY MONEY ON THIS APP UNLESS THEY CAN INPROVE. Thanks 😁.Version: 2.3

What a Hoax!This game is for sure rigged, unless you spend money. I have a friend who spends money on the game and we each played 5 games on each others phones and it was completely rigged. We each used the starter clubs so that it would be the same. Like heck it was. I won all 5 on his phone and he lost all 5 on mine. I mostly had ok shots with off aim but the ball always went right to the hole, meanwhile my opponents were just smacking the ball into the rough using a regular ball. He on the other hand ALWAYS had perfect shots with aim directly to the hole and playing the wind. His opponent had the best ball in the game every time and had stacked clubs. He would hit the ball dead perfect and it would go nowhere or would fly way off in the rough. A putt with the ball sitting on the edge of the hole bounced out like a missile and went off the green! He hardly even hit it. Then with the same clubs with the same phone we switched back and it was like his phone had an advantage over mine, and it did. I looked it up right away and I learned that most of the profile pictures are pulled of google images, you don’t play people, you play Al’s. To conclude, this game is totally rigged to those who spend once you get past the beginning. FYI: all of the good ratings are probably by people in the beginning of the game because it gives you a prize..Version: v2.1.2

Don’t download this games a scam!This game is so rigged for you to spend money. First off let me start by saying I’ve been playing this game for 1 year. Played my way to being a pretty good player. Great time playing however, recently I’ve noticed as I’m playing high coin games ($1 million coin games) the game if you loose 3 in a row offers you for example 3 million coins for 1,643 in gems. Let me say that the rewards are crap! They give you very little coin and gems in the chests to even be able to spend that kind of gem. If you don’t have it then you buy, I’ve spent over $300 on this game because I genuinely like it. But when it comes to running low on coin or the A.I wants you to buy it makes you loose and forces your shots to be off. I thought this was a fluke but in the past 3 days I’ve noticed that during a game myself and another player made the same shot, same angle, and because I had that offer to buy coin for gems it made my shot go into the rough. The other players shot went into the fairway. Then I take another shot, hit it perfect, guessed it in the rough. This happened over the course of 3 games. Moral of the story the developers of this game say they promote fair play that’s B.S., check into your system and or make it fair to win without having to spend. Castle clash has been able to do it but your game doesn’t. DONT PLAY NOR DOWNLOAD.Version: 2.37.3

Horrible.Glitchy, rigged, terrible. I’ve had this game for well over a year and USED to enjoy playing it. Games are rigged, I don’t know how many actual people are on this... seems like more bots who’s shots are always “perfect” and even the bad shots somehow managed to stay on the fairway. It’s glitchy and has caused me to lose many coins due to “connection issues” which registered as a loss... only ever seemed to do it when I was winning a 3k or above game. I am seriously considering deleting the app as I no longer enjoy playing Golf Clash. Developers could definitely take some of their paying customers views on board and actually produce a game that we all love playing and will be happy to pay for....Version: 2.34.0

Good gameBut like most games like this you end up having to pay to play. There are better ways of creating a sustainable return from the game with a longer time frame..Version: 2.2.3

Could be greatI’ve had this game for a long time and I’ve enjoyed it, however there are some key issues I have with it that could cause me and my friends to delete this game if they aren’t resolved. 1. Overall performance/flow: I really loved when they added tournaments and they’re definitely my favorite part of the game. In this week’s tournament I was doing pretty well, then my app froze while loading a hole and caused me to disconnect and take a bogey, costing me at least two shots. Then on my last hole after trying to bounce back, my app lagged and caused me to slice it into the deep rough blocked out by a tree, which cost me at least another shot. 2. There’s no practice feature. I can get into a situation where I have crazy wind or a new club or anything else I’m unfamiliar with and I will have no practice with it. It would make a big difference in my excitement for this game if there was a driving range and/or chipping green feature where I could practice different shots before I take big risks with coins in the game 3. I really like the clan feature they recently added! My friends and I have enjoyed it. I would however like to be able to send some of my coins to members of my clan if they’re in need of some Overall I think this has potential to be a great game, but like I said there are some parts of this game that annoy me enough to consider never playing again. I hope these can be changed soon, because I’ve been getting fed up with it for awhile..Version: 2.2.6

No longer fun!Pd has made some very bad changes which took the fun right out of this finger game. I will no longer play until the tourney bracketing is fixed.Version: 2.39.1

RiggedIf you play this casually you won’t notice, however as somebody that progressed reasonably far into leagues, I can assure you it is rigged. You play players who have win percentages of less than 50%, yet play as if they have percentages of 80% xD it’s so blatant in the later leagues and really disappointing. I fail to see how they remain at under 50% win percentages when they hit <1 yard away from hole from miles away. The game uses replays from other players to assure outcomes rather than live players. Losing streaks incentivise you to spend money on in app purchases to better your performance, so if you spend money - you’ll see a sudden winning streak to make you feel like purchases make a difference (heads up - it’s rigged 🤷🏻‍♂️). Do you not find it suspicious they have no adverts? Their revenue is solely from in app purchases. Don’t get me started on their broken economy 😂 I’ve said my peace and if you have an sense you won’t bother starting to play this game. If you do - I told you so in advance..Version: 2.2.9

Worst most unfair developers I’ve come across.They cheat and do whatever they want very unfair. Don’t spend a dime on this game.Version: 2.39.3

Horrible game - pass on this one!!Third review This game is corrupt. It is geared towards making the only way to advance in the game as spending your money! You can have better clubs (if you spend $5 on an upgrade pack), you can have enough coins to play in tournaments with great prizes (if you spend $10 on coin packs), you can play prize pack holes (if you spend money on chances), and so on and so on........ In fact, to make matters worse, if you do happen to make enough coins to compete in regular game play, you suddenly start loosing coins in ridiculous fashions such as landing far off path with your "perfect" shot, loosing rounds in mysterious ways, etc., etc., etc. If there were a way to give negative stars on the review, I would give it a -10. Update: Gave this game enough chances, deleting it now. It’s addicting - I’ll give it that. The fact that as soon as I get a decent amount of in-game cash, however, I go on these hellacious loosing streaks from being placed against players that far outclass me, glitches in game play that didn’t affect me before, sudden extreme wind that’s near impossible to compensate for, or just plain rigged shots (seemingly) where strategies and “perfect shots” that worked fine before fall apart. This has happened not once, but literally every time I go over, say, 100,000 coins. Deleting with pleasure - I wouldn’t recommend this game to anyone..Version: 2.1.6

I thought it was just me.The title says it all, my faith has been restored, I just thought every time I would win five or six games in a row and then lose the next six it was a bad run, then I noticed like every one else has, it’s a sting and very frustrating but now not so frustrating after reading the reviews, it’s a sting and there is no way I would pay for extra gems or coins, I guess though the gullible will keep paying for coins and gems so the app owners have no reason to keep the masses happy..Version: 2.2.7

Horrible support & Rigged!I contacted Golf Clash support because of multiple issues that I had found with the game. I was instructed to tag the shots / games as “support” and they would review. Surprise ... Surprise, the communication stopped once I provided what they asked. No response from them in 6 days since providing the actual game replay showing the issues. All of these games showed examples of unfair gameplay such as my opponents ball sticking in a rock cliff, bouncing off of water or magically putting spin on a ball when the player never opened that screen to do it! None of these issues happened before I started dumping money into the game. Advice: Dont get me wrong, I loved playing the game but die to these issue don’t recommend it, do yourself a favor and don’t play but if you do don’t ever pay for anything in this game. If you do you will start loosing every shootout or shots that once would have been good will all of a sudden fly past the hole or end up super short. Once the game forces you to lose enough games it is impossible to ever advance because at an average win rate of 50-55% “average” you will never be able to advance and unlock the next level without paying for gems to get coins. Also once they know that you are a sucker and will pay money the issues will increase. It is completely rigged and has cost me real money and a ton of frustration. I welcome ANYONE from Golf Clash to review what I submitted and contact me!.Version: 2.1.4

Golf clashThis game sucks.Version: 2.39.10

Was enjoyableUpdate - more $$ from me. I succumbed to the temptation and spent a decent amount of money on this game and was enjoying it. Maybe wining more than I was losing. But boom like a switch I lost over 1.7m coins I’m a matter of days. Right now I win one and lose 6 or 7 in a row. No way to stay at a level - I didn’t ask to be “promoted”. I also don’t get how I can do nothing right but my opponents do nothing wrong. This game gives me anxiety. Even if I win about half the time I could enjoy it but tonight I won one and lost 6 in a row and every opponent was like Gary Player and Tiger Woods combined. Hope you enjoyed my money. Lesson learned. I would give negative stars if Apple let you because playing this game makes me miserable. At first it’s a very enjoyable game. I do agree with other reviews about the lack of penalty for out of bounds and the slightly unrealistic ball action. None of those would truly bother me if there was a way to practice, especially on new courses. I just started playing 6 star hotel and after a single victory I’ve lost every match since - which, since you pay so much to play that course, it’s impossible to get enough coins from bonuses or the lower courses to catch up what I lost. At least give and option to play each course as a practice round as many times as you want. Losing all the coins it took you weeks to save up in 2-3 matches really takes the fun away from this game..Version: 2.1.6

ScamThis game is so inconsistent. I’ve played where I can’t loose for 5 or 6 games, then suddenly I loose 10 to 15 games playing the same way... when I call support, they give some lame excuse . I once got to almost 5 million dollars, and then I sunk to under a hundred thousand with no reason. It’s fun when it lasts but it will take all its money back from you, be aware of this scam game, TRUST ME!!!.Version: 2.2.9

Rigged and unfairI started playing this game a couple years ago, I managed to rack up the wins back then, made it to tour 9, 4.5m in the bank coming top 50 in tournements etc loving life. I took some time away from the game, I can back 3 weeks ago, I have played 1600 games and my win rate was 56% (pretty good) I instantly started facing players with well over 30k games played, max level clubs etc (unfair matchmaking at its finest) I am here today because I now have 52 coins, no gems, I didn’t blow it all in the high tours, I always make sure I have enough coins for 12-15 plays of a certain tour (120k means I can play the 10k tour etc) it’s taken me a week to loose everything. I don’t know how your algorithm works but it’s terrible. You need to put max levels on clubs at different tours. I’ve got a member in my clan who started playing 3 weeks ago who is now quoting the game due to this reason too. His played 260ish games and is being put up against people that have played thousands.. it’s a pay to win game and there is no chance if you don’t want to spend much money, every week they shove deals in your face, when you loose they offer you 3x the entrance fee for X amount of gems which of course when you start loosing a lot due to terrible matchmaking becomes quite tempting... sort it out, I read in a post above that you are “gamers” too... must be gamers with deep deep pockets to get anywhere with this game..Version: 2.38.1

Good but massively frustratingEnjoyable little game and very addictive. However, this game is anything but fair. Always paired against people who have better clubs, wind strength and direction are very questionable. I don’t care what the developers say, when this game wants you to lose, you will lose. There have been far too many instances of the ball landing in a completely random place even though you do everything right for it to be coincidence. And then somehow your ‘opponent’ plays the same shot with a different outcome. Really, really inconsistent. It’s a shame because it could be such a good game it if was fair. Edit: Well I was frustrated with this game and now I’m just annoyed. Finally built myself back up to about 37k so I could start playing the better tournaments or upgrade one of my clubs. Start a 60k match and it ‘loses connection.’ Match forfeited and my hard earned cash lost without even hitting a ball. I was on WiFi at home with no connection issues on anything else. Tried contacting through the ‘help’ section but no response. I’m sure this is designed to make you lose more money so you have to invest your own real money to get back into the game.
