Oct 1, 2019It's not golf, and it's all the better for it. A fun 7-8 hours that will entertain, much like a golf-themed WarioWare.
Oct 2, 2019What the Golf? has been in development for a while—I feel like I've tried it at several indie game events over the past few years—but now that it's out I'm delighted to see its a fun, funny, extremely inventive puzzle game and a pleasure to play from the first hole-in-one to the final cat-in-seven.
Oct 14, 2019I went into What the Golf? expecting a fairly straightforward golf game with a few silly surprises, but it’s so much more than that. Even if its simplistic nature sometimes acts as a double-edged sword, What the Golf? is a devilishly charming experience full of good humor and imaginative gameplay wrapped up in a thoughtful and endearing package. It may be made by people who know nothing about golf, but they sure know how to make a fun video game.
Oct 10, 2019What the golf? is probably the funniest game of 2019. The concept of transforming everything in golf is amazing and the game mechanics are simple, fresh and entertaining. Fun, lighthearted and addictive, it's perfect for quick runs, coffee break and nights of relaxed gameplay.
May 19, 2020What the Golf is a comedy game first and foremost, and it succeeds at its primary goal. Perhaps the game's most telling feature is the 'Show To A Friend' option on the main menu, which runs you through a quick playable "best of" reel of some clever challenges the game offers up. What the Golf is an experience that can be shown off, fully understood, and effectively sold to a player in the span of about two minutes--and like all great jokes, you'll want to share it.
Nov 5, 2019Crazy, stylish and greatly entertaining even without any multiplayer mode. What The Golf? is the perfect golf game for those who hate golf games.
Oct 11, 2019What The Golf has created an absurd, hilarious, bite-sized experience that is always golf-adjacent and brilliant for it. The jokes and levels are a whirlwind of zany ideas, but the quick pacing and brief runtime of the game keep them from falling flat or getting tiresome. Despite an overworld that can feel a little repetitive, What The Golf? is full of hearty laughs and addictive gameplay that made me never want to stop playing.
Oct 1, 2019A simple game premise turned chaotically good fun. The variety in the ways you get your golf ball (or car, or barrel, or egg, or...) to the goal will always keep you on your toes. This might not be a game that you're going to spend your next 80 gaming hours with, but it will be a great game to binge over a day or so.
Sep 30, 2019What the Golf? Is one of those games that might look simple and silly, but they’re actually a lot of fun. It will surprise you every time you play, and If you’re an Apple Arcade subscriber you shouldn’t miss it.
Sep 26, 2019What the Golf is the ultimate parody of the titular sport by boiling it down to its fundamentals and constantly upending the player’s expectations to create a humorous and memorable game. With smart and infrequent references to other games, an appealing aesthetic and reliable mechanics, the relatively brief campaign works well as either a pick-up-and-play title or a fun undertaking to blaze through in an afternoon. Thanks to a core concept that should appeal to sports, puzzle or comedy fans, What the Golf is a promising debut from the small team at Triband that is sure to please gamers of all ages.

I'm happy that I played it and would recommend it, if you're looking for a creative and fun, yet not very challenging experience.
Note: Don't expect any classical golfing gameplay! You will not be able to play through courses against others, etc.
- Very creative in its course designs and mechanics
- Definitely also something for people that don't like golf
- A ton of content
- This was clearly created with passion
- Not well suited for longer play sessions.
- If you like typical golf games you might not find what you're looking for here.
- Very easy (with only a few exceptions. Damn you car level)… Full Review »
