10 Best Golf Video Games To Play In 2022
The world of golf is indeed a beloved even if some just don’t get it. But whether they do or not, there are plenty of video games that celebrate golf. Here are a few.
#10 Golf Club: Vacant Land
Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, iOS, Android, PC, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5
So imagine this, Earth is a wasteland and so the rich and powerful are fleeing to Mars to try to rebuild. But then, one of them returns to play a “last round of golf” in the remnants of human civilization on the planet. Doesn’t that sound like something rich people would do?
But it’s true, in Golf Club: Wasteland you will go and play a game of golf where the course is the fallen cities of the world and their surroundings. As you play turn-by-turn, you’ll begin to piece together all the different reasons the Earth fell and learn that you may not be alone on the planet.
#9 Golf with your friends
Platforms: Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PC
So come with us on this one, okay? It’s a game where you play golf, with your friends. Such a difficult thing to conceive, isn’t it? Where do they get these ideas from?
Either way, Golf With Your Friends is indeed exactly what it sounds like, and as a result, you’ll be able to have fun with your friends while hitting a variety of courses. But wait, there’s a twist, to add a little more fun and excitement to the game of golf, not that it needs to, is there? You will be able to play the game with your friends on each hole at the same time!
Thus, you will race to get the highest score and do it as fast as possible.
#8 Party Golf
Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC
If you liked the last entry, but wanted it to be a bit more extreme in terms of what you can do with the game as a whole, then Party Golf is for you. Why? Because you can play with friends again, but how you play golf here is up to you.
That’s right, the game is procedurally generated, so every course you get will be different, and then you can adjust the rules of the game to be a little more fun, or crazy, or have some very strict rules, etc.
Play with friends locally or online, then see what kind of insane golf modes you can create!
#7 The golf club
Platforms: PC, PlayStation 4
If you desire a bit more “steady” stroke in golf, like if you want to play like the pros, then you’ll want to try getting The Golf Club series. This was done in an attempt to be one of the most accurate and in-depth golf games ever made at the time.
For example, you will be able to do an in-depth career mode where you can play alone and see how good you can be. Then you can switch to online modes and participate not only with other players, but also participate in tournaments and test your skills in other ways.
#6 Dangerous Golf
Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC
Oh, what is it? Too “basic” for you? Well, you didn’t say it before! Alright, how about a game of golf that honestly isn’t so much about golf as it is about high-level destruction? Will it work for you?
In Dangerous Golf you will be able to go on 100 different courses where the way you go and accumulate points is to destroy everything in sight with your club and golf ball. You can even do so well that you can put your golf ball on FIRE and do even MORE destruction.
Sure, you can play “basic” and just sink the ball, but that’s not what you said you wanted!
#5 Everyone’s Golf
Platforms: PlayStation 4
Listen, we know not everyone wants to play golf, and then when you look at the various golf games that focus on skill and actually TRY to do well, it can be a little off-putting. So you’ll never try the game yourself, will you?
Enter Everybody’s Golf, a title where you can play golf by simply pressing three simple buttons. Really, it’s a game of golf that ANYBODY can play, and that’s part of the problem. The other point is to go and customize your character while you play the game so that you like how you look while having fun.
#4 Play golf!
If regular golf isn’t your style, there’s an alternative, and that’s mini golf! It’s iconic in many parts of the world, and as you’ve probably seen, courses can get quite tricky if you don’t time your shots correctly.
In Golf It!, you’ll have a competitive round of mini-golf to play with your friends. There will be 6 main courses to play, each having 18 holes to play and therefore you will have to prove yourself to get the job done.
Then you can head to the multiplayer editor and then create your own courses! So dive in and have fun.
#3 Turbo Golf Race
Platforms: Xbox One, PC, Xbox Series X/S
Aren’t we still selling you the concept of golf? What if we got Fast & Furious for you, would that help at all? Turbo Golf Racing is indeed that, you will drive incredibly fast cars and then smack into oversized golf balls in order to score points and win the game against a score of other players.
But that’s not all, you can equip your cars with special power-ups to do better on the course, as well as customize your character to infinity and beyond to stand out from the crowd. Do you think you are up to this “sport of the future”?
#2 Cursed in golf
Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5
A completely unique take on a golf game, Cursed to Golf puts you in the role of a golfer who dies on the verge of being crowned golf champion. Now you’re stuck in golf purgatory, believe it, and you literally have to play the best game of golf of your life to be brought back to life! No pressure, right?
You will have to face a series of high level golf courses and master certain skills to progress. Oh, what if you miss the normal? You start all over again on the course.
So learn from legendary caddies, take a good look at the course and get the shot right!
#1 PGA Tour 2K21
Platforms: PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4
It’s only fair that we put the officially licensed game at the top of the list, isn’t it? PGA Tour 2K21 is indeed the golf game that’s supposed to make you feel like a golf pro yourself, and even allow you to play against some of the best in the game right now.
You’ll find yourself able to enter a deep career mode, a mode that will allow you to be on very large golf courses as you compete against the pros. Then you can take the game online and have fun with friends to see who is the best golfer among you!
