What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Golf Clash is a golf game for iOS and Android devices. While players do compete against other people, and can send them messages during a match, these messages are limited to emojis and predetermined phrases. Players can also use in-game currency to play a round, purchase new balls and clubs, or upgrade their club's power, accuracy, and other attributes. This currency can either be earned through playing or bought by paying real money. Otherwise, there's no inappropriate content to be found in the game. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your (or your kids') information is collected, used, and shared, and any choices you may have in the matter, and note that privacy policies and terms of service frequently change.

What's it about?

Like the real thing, GOLF CLASH doesn't have a story. You play a simplified version of golf against other people, trying to beat them, the course, and yourself. Players have the option to enter weekly leagues to try to win extra content and bonus items based on your placement, and can challenge people from Facebook or from around the world to test your golf playing skills.

Is it any good?

While serious golf fans won't appreciate how this isn't a simulation of their favorite pastime, more casual players will have fun with this arcade-like sports game. In Golf Clash, you play rounds of golf against other real people. But instead of trying to recreate the sport on your phone or tablet, this game instead has a slight arcade feel about it. Using your finger, you pull back to set where you're going to aim and how hard you're going to hit it. You even have to wait your turn, just like when you're playing the back nine at Augusta. But that's where the simulation ends.

Golf Clash tells you how far to pull back and when to release to hit it, and even reads the terrain for you, though you do have to time it just right. It's also a bummer you can't play this on your own, especially when you're somewhere you can't connect to the Internet. That said, it's helpful that you're always pitted against someone as skilled, or unskilled, as you. And that players have a limited time to take their shots. All of which is why Golf Clash won't replace golf as your favorite weekend activity, but will entertain those who can't get to the green today.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about managing their money. Given that you can earn the gold coins and gems for upgrades by playing Golf Clash, does it make sense to spend a lot of money?

  • After playing Golf Clash, would you like to try the real sport? Are you more of a mini-golf person instead?
