GL Golf for Mac provides a realistic virtual golf experience by employing responsive physics and features such as water hazards. You're able to customize the appearance of your character as well as the environment, and you can choose from three difficulty levels. While lacking online multiplayer, the game provides a global leaderboard.

When launched, GL Golf for Mac presents you with its main settings screen. There you can choose the type of game, weather conditions, time of day, number of players, and difficulty, as well as customize the player's appearance and the clubs they will use. Through the game's menu you can also adjust the graphic details, but you won't be impressed, not even by the highest settings. A nice touch is the support for retina displays and fullscreen mode, as well as iTunes playback controls. The gameplay, itself, is easy to pick up and enjoyable, mainly thanks to the decent game physics. After the game ends, your score is added to the global leaderboard. The biggest drawbacks of the game are the lack of ability to customize your keyboard controls and the fact there is no online multiplayer mode available.

While it's not visually spectacular, GL Golf for Mac offers an enjoyable experience to golf fans. Features like different weather conditions, and random hole locations add replay value by keeping the game fresh and challenging. This is a premium app that comes with a demo version, which allows you to play six holes.
