App Creation #39 – Game Inspiration – Let’s Golf 3


Well it certainly is a jolly nice day. The sun is shining, the birds are tweeting, the grass is trimmed to perfection and a set of individuals not shy of a brisk walk are preparing themselves for a very serious sport indeed.

All Part of the Course

Golf is often ridiculed for its dawdling professionals. Aiming, shuffling, aiming some more, checking the wind speed, gauging the distance with just a little bit more aiming involved and finally – a shot is taken. Sometimes the excitement boils over to such a degree that your eyebrow may actually rise in bewilderment as the ball hurtles into the rough.


OK… so golf isn’t well known for its frantic pace, however it is a game that requires a certain amount of skill and judgement and is far more fun to play than to watch.

Green with Envy

On occasion, matching the sport exactly to its real-life counterpart isn’t always the best course of action. In this case the superior choice was to deliver an enhanced side of the game by adding imaginary courses that include far more intriguing location details, a cartoon-like environment and a far more light hearted approach entirely.


So don’t let your golfing trepidations dissuade you from many hours worth of enjoyment. Let’s Golf provides relief to your terror and amusements for your merriment recreation. Now if only real golf could be as breathtaking as this.
