  1. Play Magazine
    Players will spend most of their time in the new Play Now mode. Here, you're given 50 scenarios where you are immediately thrown into the heart of competition. [Dec 2002, p.90]
  2. Fun to play. Bottom line. The swing is so intuitive, so simple, it’s a wonder it didn’t come along sooner.
  3. Nintendo Power
    The best golf game on the GCN. [Dec 2002, p.214]
  4. What makes Tiger Woods the best golf game available are the controls.
  5. Apart from the oversight of not including 3D greens, leaving putting a little to guesswork, Tiger Woods 2003 really is one of the best golf sims ever made.
  6. 90
    Gives serious golf fans a deep sim while offering casual fans an approachable, gorgeous game with tons of play modes.
  7. In addition to playing on boring, traditional courses like Pebble Beach with the good ol’ boys, you can take on a quartet of kilt-wearing Scotsmen in the middle of the Amazon.
  8. 89
    It blows the doors off "Mario Golf" with its control mechanics and takes "Links" down with its amazing presentation and superbly crafted 3D engine and courses.
  9. A nearly flawless game of golf that somehow manages to appeal to every breed of golfer.
  10. Game Informer
    EA has started down a road that sits directly between bieng boring and being goofy - creating a golfing tradition we can all get on board with, starting now. [Nov 2002, p.134]
