Get your golf fix with­out buy­ing clubs

The Washington Post Sunday - - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION - — Hay­ley Tsukayama

Wish you were out at the mini-golf course? “Vista Golf” isn’t a sub­sti­tute for a good day of golf­ing, but it is a fun, touch­based golf game that could help you pre­tend for a lit­tle while.

Play­ers can line up their shots and de­cide how hard to hit the golf ball. Plus, they have to avoid hazards and nav­i­gate the ec­cen­tric bends in the course along the way.

Play­ers aim, of course, to get the ball in the hole, un­der par. You can un­lock achieve­ment badges through­out the game, for both good and bad moves. (Part of the fun is fig­ur­ing out what sort of fail­ure will earn you a badge, like whack­ing the ball as hard as you can.)

Play­ing “Vista Golf” won’t im­prove your swing or your ac­tual golf game, but it is fun, easy and cer­tainly less ex­pen­sive than a real round. Plus, you don’t have to carry your clubs.
