Play OverviewPlay Overview

What the Golf? (2019) is a parody golf game where, despite initial appearances, you rarely hit the ball into the hole. Instead, each golf course has an unexpected twist, such as hitting yourself into the hole or maybe hitting the club.

It's more of a comedy game with puzzles and surprises than a golf game, and this is no bad thing. Each day there are new courses, challenges, and surprises. You are always hitting something with something else, but that's where the similarity to the popular sport ends.

As you progress, you work through the levels to unlock more challenges and funny scenarios. The game was updated in July 2021 to add 1000 new holes. Even includes a hole where you can play actual golf -- as in getting the ball in the hole with the club.

The result is a fun interactive parody that wants to make you laugh more than get you competitive. Because of this, it's a great game to play together in the family and works well with a wide variety of abilities.
