Golf With Your Friends is a miniature golf simulation game where you hit your ball around increasingly extravagant and ridiculous courses. Along with the usual putting, your ball can fly a short distance on some courses, and jump to reach new sections or take shortcuts. With the capacity for both on-and-offline multiplayer, as well as a single-player mode, it offers a laid back way to connect with friends and family over a competitive yet lighthearted game.

Our accessibility examiner, Ben Kendall, first checked Golf With Your Friends accessibility 23 months ago. It was re-examined by Andy Robertson and updated 23 months ago.

NotesAccessibility Notes

Your time to beat each level is limited, and if you don't get to the hole in the time, you fail. However you can adjust the limit per round to infinite when you select the mode, making the game low pressure.

When playing in local multiplayer matches, you have to pass around the controller, so every player has to use the same controller, ie. one player cannot use an Xbox Adaptive Controller while other players use a standard controller.

While text is extremely minimal, much of it is small and doesn't always contrast well with the background.

Even though there is no motion blur or depth of field, camera movement can become very frenetic when your ball is in motion, which may induce motion sickness in some players.
