The 18 Greatest Golf Games of All Time

Somewhat recently (and completely apropos of nothing) we decided to make a list of the 18 greatest golf video games of all time. The next time you find yourself craving a golf game, consult this list and then just go straight to number one and play that one. It’s the greatest golf game of all time, why waste your time with the rest?

  1. Sid Meier’s SimGolf – Of all the golf games with a person’s name at the beginning of the title, this is one of them.

  1. Mario Golf World Tour – Because you can play as Waluigi! WAAAAAAHHHHHH!

  1. Golf (NES) – This one’s a classic so we felt obligated to include it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  1. Hal’s Hole in One Golf – Okay fine, we never played this one but it’s from the same devs who made the Kirby games and the Mother series so this is probably good, right?

  1. Mean 18 – This game was on DOS, remember DOS? Those were the days…

  1. Kirby’s Dream Course – Originally released on SNES, this is barely even golf, which is great because golf isn’t really that fun. Oh, were you reading this list, thinking we like golf this whole time? Awkward

  1. Golf Story – Mixing wacky RPG elements really makes this game more video game-y and less golf-y. Considered to be “almost the Seinfeld of video games.” Recommended!

  1. CyberTiger – Probably a fine golf game, but we really only put this on the list as a warning to anyone who wanted to play a game about a cybernetic tiger. You will not find any in this game. Not recommended.

  1. Lee Trevino’s Fighting Golf – The only game on this list endorsed by the US National Video Game Team.

  1. Aqua Teen Hunger Force Zombie Ninja Pro-Am – You should probably play this one while drunk. Unless you’re reading this and you’re not 21. Then you should wait until you’re 21, get drunk, then play it.

  1. Ghetto Golf – We’re pourin’ one out for this game since it never saw the light of day.

  1. Ribbit King – This game is based on a fictional sport called frolf, which is golf, but with frogs. CLEVER.

  1. Lee Carvallo’s Putting Challenge – “Welcome to Lee Carvallo’s Putting Challenge. I am Carvallo. Now, choose a club. (Beep) You have chosen a three wood. May I suggest a putter? (Beep) Three wood. Now enter the force of your swing. I suggest feather touch. (Beep, beep, beep) You have entered “power drive”. Now, push seven eight seven to swing.” (Beep beep beep). “Ball is in…parking lot. Would you like to play again? (Beep) You have selected, “No.”

  1. Golf of War – Even though it hasn’t been released, we know the 8th installment of this franchise will be the best one yet! The decision to switch from an action adventure style to a golf game is a strange one but we know it will be good wholesome fun, just like its predecessors.

  1. Mar-a-Lago: Shithole in One – Despite the setting being only the 2nd largest mansion in the state of Florida, Shithole in One is a delight! The only #fakenews you’ll see here is the size of Trump’s hands. ZING!

  1. PUTTG A multiplayer online battle royale golf game developed and published by PUTTG Corporation, a subsidiary of Korean publisher Golfhole. The game is based on previous mods that were developed by Brendan “PutterUnknown” Green for other games using the the 2000 film Happy Gilmore for inspiration, and expanded into a standalone golf game under Green’s creative direction.

  1. Jay & Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Putt Funded on Fig in March of 2016, Interabang Entertainment brings us the ultimate stoner golf game! With the recent New Jersey medical marijuana laws going into effect, Jay and Silent Bob convert the mall’s mini golf course into a dispensary. Putt, putt, pass!
