9 Best Golf Games for iPhone & iPad 2018

Golf, in real life, is played with clubs and balls. Golf players, commonly known as golfers, use the clubs to hit the balls into a sequence of holes on a course in as few strokes as possible. You drive, pitch, and putt your way around 18 holes. But in most golf games on mobile devices, gameplay varies, although the basic principles of the sport are there.

Golf games for your iPhone can be a little different than hitting the ball to shoot it in the right holes. Some titles we have on this list do just that; others have twists in it. If you wish to know more about them, check out some of the best golf games for your iPhone below:
