Free online golf game that is similiar to Hot Shots, but better. I've been playing this thing non-stop and advise everyone to check it out if you've got the time.

Holy smokes!  Where did this come from?

I thought I'd play around with it for a bit and an hour later I'm also hooked!  It looks really nice once I bumped up the resolution.  How is this free?

I noticed the Tournament option is greyed out.  What's that for?

Are there lots of online players?

Hmm, looks interesting.  I dl'd it and just went through the tutorial.  I hit a problem with my username, as I had a '#' symbol in it.  The website let me use that for registration, but ingame it wouldn't accept it  :roll:   So I had to make a new email addy just to get the darn thing to work.  I'll have to try a vs. game tomorrow.

I believe Tournament mode opens up after you level up once. It's a really awesome feature. Allows 30 people to play simultaneously for trophies.

The game is free, but they just introduced a "cookies" system that allows you to spend real cash on some of the items.

As far as the number of people playing, I never have a problem finding a game the moment I login. There is usually a hundred or more on at any one time. People from all over the globe play.

I see the way they get "real" money is by giving you the ability to buy things in the game using paypal.
Ingenious way of making a bit of profit. I don't have a problem with that.

If you don't want to buy anything to play you don't have to.
But I think if someone really likes this game eventually he\she will give in and purchase something...

I've been playing this game non-stop since I tried it very addicting in a hotshots type of golf kind of way.
