WHAT THE GOLF?
A humorous and surprising puzzle game about golf and not-golf.
An anti-golf comedy game that remains consistently funny throughout.
Over its five hours or so, the game yields amusement, challenge and charm. It’s highly recommended, even if you despise the game of golf. Maybe especially if you despise the game of golf.
What The Golf has created an absurd, hilarious, bite-sized experience that is always golf-adjacent and brilliant for it. The jokes and levels are a whirlwind of zany ideas, but the quick pacing and brief runtime of the game keep them from falling flat or getting tiresome. Despite an overworld that can feel a little repetitive, What The Golf? is full of hearty laughs and addictive gameplay that made me never want to stop playing.
What the golf? is probably the funniest game of 2019. The concept of transforming everything in golf is amazing and the game mechanics are simple, fresh and entertaining. Fun, lighthearted and addictive, it's perfect for quick runs, coffee break and nights of relaxed gameplay.

A simple game premise turned chaotically good fun. The variety in the ways you get your golf ball (or car, or barrel, or egg, or...) to the goal will always keep you on your toes. This might not be a game that you're going to spend your next 80 gaming hours with, but it will be a great game to binge over a day or so.
I went into What the Golf? expecting a fairly straightforward golf game with a few silly surprises, but it’s so much more than that. Even if its simplistic nature sometimes acts as a double-edged sword, What the Golf? is a devilishly charming experience full of good humor and imaginative gameplay wrapped up in a thoughtful and endearing package. It may be made by people who know nothing about golf, but they sure know how to make a fun video game.
What the Golf is the ultimate parody of the titular sport by boiling it down to its fundamentals and constantly upending the player's expectations to create a humorous and memorable game.
It's not golf, and it's all the better for it. A fun 7-8 hours that will entertain, much like a golf-themed WarioWare.
What the Golf is easily the dumbest game you’re going to play all year, and I say that with all the love in the world.
