  1. What happened to ambient sounds and laugh at bad shots?

  2. I am referring to crowd noise and crowd laughter. I have checked the settings and they are on but not audible anymore. The lawn mowers and birds are audible.

    • Are you on a Mac or iOS device? You turned off the ambient sounds and left other sound effects on?

      • I tried it both ways. I checked the Ambient Sounds on and the Sound Effects on. I checked my Bose computer speakers and they work just fine. Then I tried combinations of turning on one and shutting off the other – Ambient Sounds and Sound Effects. The crowd noise that used to accompany a hole in one OR an eagle along with the infamous crowd laughter at a bad shot are no longer available. I am using a MacBook Pro running OSX 10.5. Not a huge issue but just wondered what happened through the recent update. Thank you for taking the time to respond.

        • Hum, strange I’m not exactly sure. I’ll definitely have this figured out for the next update though. I didn’t think GL Golf even ran on 10.5 anymore, maybe that is the issue?

  3. Jake, am I the only fan of GL Golf who is reporting this?

    • So far yes, no other reports. That doesn’t mean it’s not happening though, for everyone who reports the problem there are probably several who don’t

  4. Hey Jake…..please help my “failing memory”. How do I get the 2.43 update?

  5. My partner and I just played the new course “Spyglass Hill” tonight. It is a fun course.
    His score was -19 and mine -11, but when we clicked on record scores, it said he had a quad- bogey and it recorded a -15 for him. He never had one bogey.

    What causes this kind of scoring. It has happened before when we play the tournaments. Very discouraging.

    • This bug has finally been squashed and will be ready for 2.44. It took probably a year to track down but one user finally helped me pinpoint the exact cause. Until then sorry for the issue, and if it happens during a tournament email me a screenshot and I’ll fix the score online

  6. Played Final round of the tournament and it just was not very good, the ball was a disk, and I had to keep on resuming the game, and the auto aim stayed on throughout the round, it was real hard to play, I don’t know if it was because of the new operating system I install ?

  7. I just install Maverick, version of GL golf I have is 2.430

    • Strange, I cannot reproduce any of those symptoms, but I am working on the next update as we speak with the new OS, hopefully I can recreate something

      • It only happened in that last round of the tournament, do you know

        why did the ball turn into a disk?

            Jake….. This is What I’m talking about, this is on spyglass, It’s happening about all the time. and it happens another courses, I really have a hard time playing the games anymore, friend of mine has a Mac and has the same problem,
            But not as much……….. I hope you can help me.

            ps…. It happened even before I installed the new operating system Maverick

          • You’ll have to email me the screenshot, you can’t post them onto the comments page

  8. Please stop sending me these messages. I haven’t played this game in 2 years Pleeeese!!!
