4 Kind of Dumb Free Android Golf Games You’ll Actually Have a Blast With

There is almost literally an app for everything these days, even when it comes to golf. There are apps to find golf courses and even golfing partners, GPS apps that map those courses, apps to score with, even apps to learn from. And then there are golf themed games, there are plenty of them as well, designed to allow you to keep indulging your passion for playing golf even in the middle of winter when all of the courses are closed.

Many of those games offer some rather realistic virtual play as well, complete with detailed courses, virtually human avatars and realistic golf gameplay. This list includes none of those kinds of games. Instead it is a rundown of the best of the more than slightly silly, but also rather fun to play, vaguely golf themed games that have been popping up on regular basis for use by Android device users recently. None of them offer any realistic golf action at all, just quite a bit of time wasting fun.

Zombie Golf - Android Apps on Google Play

Zombies, pet chickens and golf, an interesting combination for sure. And the object of the game is rather simple. You are a zombie trying to complete a round of golf on a course that is increasingly surreal. You are accompanied by a number of chickens (which seems a little improbable given the nature of zombies but never mind)  and when these chickens lay eggs, and the zombie collects them, they can be exchanged in the zombie pro shop for various upgraded golf tools, golf clothing and even new zombies. Not overly challenging, but nonetheless rather addicting, this is a game that is worth at least a download, especially as it’s free.

This is actually one of the most downloaded golf game apps in the Japanese Android market and was developed by some of the team who created the later Final Fantasy console games. And it is, to say the least, very Japanese and very slightly weird.

As the name of the game suggests all of the golfers a player has to choose from look like they have just been ripped from some kind of Dungeons and Dragons style game. There are monsters and Valkyries, angels and demons and creatures that really defy rational description. The courses they are tasked with playing on are increasingly fantastical and their actual equipment even more so (lightening rod 5 iron anyone?)

In single player mode this is a surprisingly good basic golf sim with excellent graphics. In online multiplayer mode you can literally play golf for your country in the live weekly international tournaments or simply challenge random players to a few quick head to head holes. Fun to play, fun to look at, Dungeons and Golf World is definitely worth a shot (or a few dozen) for fantasy game fans and indeed anyone else who likes

Icy Golf - Android Apps on Google Play

Well, having gone through golfing zombies and golfing demons, let’s move on to golfing penguins. Although graphically far simpler – the penguin is kind of cute though – this game offers two challenges in one; playing your way (or your penguin’s way) around the frozen tundra of an Arctic golf course and actually getting to the fairways in the first place.

In many ways the golfing gameplay is rather similar to the excellent Stickman Golf but in order to begin play at all your little penguin chap has to make it past a series of obstacles and across slippery slides to get to each tee in the first place. And despite the fact that it looks easy enough it really isn’t. Plus it’s a little bit jarring every time the poor little thing gets crushed by a huge ice block just because you chose the wrong side of the D Pad!

Golf Cart Simulator 3D - Android Apps on Google Play

Technically this is a grown up sim game that allows users to drive their way around a 3D golf course and develop the proper driving and parking skills before upgrading to a bigger, better cart or exploring a new section of course.

And technically you could play it that way and have at least a bit of fun. The graphics are pretty decent and some of the upgrades you can earn are rather neat (giant furry dice, pimped out rims etc.) Or you could play it the other way. That way being go all GTA and smash your way randomly around the course, knocking over golfers, spectators, flag markers and even vendors. Very silly we know but oddly satisfying, especially if you need to let off a little steam after a losing day on the real greens…
