    Golf: Tee It Up! loses points for its minimalist approach (only 2 courses and limited character customization doesn't help) but because it still has a full-game-for-the-price-of-an-arcade-game feel, attractive visuals, and holds the promise of more downloadable content in the future, it's a great value.
  2. Golf: Tee it up really is fantastic value for money, you don't even really need to be a golf fan to play because it's very simple to pick up and very enjoyable.
  3. When it comes right down to it Tee It Up is an extremely bare bones release.
  4. Golf: Tee It Up! offers respectable arcade gameplay and slick production values.
  5. It's reassuringly simple fare. [Issue#36, p.115]
  6. The game is fun in short bursts, but won't hold your attention for too long. [July 2008, p.66]
  7. A totally competent golf game which ultimately does too much wrong and to little right. [Sept 2008, p.97]

    Easy and addictive. Nice graphics, excelent holes designs and good gameplay with an arcade touch very fun. The downloable desert course is hard but funny. The only one thing is that only has 2 courses in the game, the third one you have to pay to get it. Expand
