Tour Tips & Don't Get Discouraged!

60+ rounds later, a few thoughts for those starting out and those frustrated.... 1) Don't let the game beat you. I mean this will all seriousness. As a semi-serious amateur golfer, the toughest thing about this game (golf) is not letting it get you down. Ever hole is a new hole, and a new chance to ...

Re: Excellent fun and very frustrating...

Ditto on the stress release. Just gotta make sure the volume is down on the neverending conference calls. Jake - have you considered a driving range course? Just one hole, or a couple different 'scenarios' where you can practice shots, get a feel for the power bars, and possibly try out all the equi...

Re: 59 games and 5 tournaments later ... some thoughts

definitely agree about the putter. Why not just make it available for every shot? In the real world I've putted out of bunkers (when they don't fluff 'em for a few weeks and the setup like concrete). And in Nova Golf I could see it as being useful to get from under a tree back into the fairway. I am...

Tend the Rakes!

OK - it pisses us off on the real courses, and it's irking me now in the game. Rakes in the sand traps are a nice creative touch. But don't make them solid objects in your game engine. In the real world I'd move a rake out of the line of play before making my shot. You got it right on the golf carts...

Re: My First Nova Golf Game Played

I gotta say that I didn't feel 'nerfed' at all. I think being able to quickly 'win' a couple of 100 credit tourneys makes a big difference in that, so you can make a fast jump up to the next level on a couple clubs. I think that's part of the challenge - where to spend the credits and experience poi...

Re: Feature Request - Auto Saving

No, it just picked up at hole 1 of round 4 of the tourney. Still did allright. Had another crash later today that actually hung the whole computer. I can't remember what the key combination was, but I'm pretty sure I was holding down the command key to speed up the game play (nice feature). I'm all ...

Feature Request - Auto Saving

Just placed #2 in a tournament, with 900+ credits in winnings, only to have the app crash when exiting the leaderboard page. I've seen this happen a couple of times, and it usually picks up at the last hole played when I relaunch. This time it's totally forgotten my fourth round in the tourney, the ...
