The weather is getting warmer and many of us hear our local golf course calling out to us to come to visit and play. Unfortunately, not everyone has the time or money to get out to the golf course as often as they’d like, but there are quite a few amazing golf games on Android and iOS that can be played from the comfort of your home even if you’re waiting for a friend to catch up on the course. Here are our favorite mobile golf games that can help quench the desire to golf.

PGA TOUR Golf Shootout
PGA TOUR Golf Shootout is similar to other golf games but boasts the fact that the matches take place on one of four official TPC golf courses. Play others online and earn packs that contain additional coins and clubs. Packs come in Bronze, Silver, and Gold packs with the abilities of each club found increasing as you move through the pack levels. The game is fun, but one thing, although minor, bothered me. The clubs on the cards contained both right-handed and left-handed clubs. I don’t care which one they used, I would have just like to see it consistent on all the cards. Either way, PGA Tour Golf Shootout is a fun game on virtualized TPC golf courses.

As with other golf games, progression leads to unlocked clubs and golf balls to improve your game. In-game purchases are also available to purchase new better equipment and golf balls.
