iGolf: Free Golf App for the iPhone

Share:

Just a word of caution before you continue reading: hold on tight to your iPhones people! Why? That’s because the Social Gaming Network (SGN) has just launched a Wii-like golf app for the iPhone! iGolf was released yesterday and this fun app will let you take the links with you wherever you go (try not to play it in public, as people might think you’ve lost your marbles).

iGolf: Let the Flying iPhones Begin!

iGolf uses the iPhone’s accelerometer to detect your Wii Golf-like swing on the iPhone. Once you launch the app, select your club (iron, wood, driver), touch the “Hit” button and swing the iPhone like a real golf club and away you go! For the best swing, hold the iPhone like you would a tennis racket. This way the accelerometer won’t initiate too early on your back swing.

iGolf is currently free via the App Store. A future version will allow users to play on courses as well. Currently you’re limited to the driving range. It’s pretty neat to kill some time and have a little contest with friends. My longest drive at the moment is 463 yards. Let me know if you’ve topped my monster Tiger-esque drive in the comments!

Check out the following demo video by TechCrunch:

So the big question remains: has anyone flung their iPhone across the room yet? 😉

    Hmmm. I think I’ll stick to the Wii. If I accidentally let go of the wiimote on my backswing, it’s only a $40 replacement…

    When I saw this post last night, I instantly downloaded the game! I tried it a few times and I have to say that it is a really cool concept. Being an owner of wii golf and tiger woods golf for the ds, I hope that iGolf can be just as good in the future. I am eagerly awaiting the future updates. Thanks iPhone Fan for the post!

    Someone in the app store wrote for a review: “I just threw my iphone across the room. Who’s gonna buy me a new phone now?” LOL

    I dropped my first Iphone 3G from waist height in a parking lot and the screen shattered.

    I don’t care how good this app is, I will not be playing it. My $300+ phone which is locked into a 3 year contract is way to valuable to risk. Like Trent, I use my Wii and $40 controller to play games like this.

    512!!!

    But… I cheated a little. If you use a throwing motion instead of a golf swing, you can get huge distances 😛
