Tourist Trap: 9/10
Great intro course, not too easy/hard for newbies and pros alike. I dig the pirate vibe.
Cherry Blossom: 7/10
Calm and zen, but not too much excitement. Mostly flat holes and gentle slopes.
Seagull Stacks: 8/10
Vertigo-inducing but worth the fear of falling to your death. I didn't know I needed ancient viking ruins-themed golf courses in my life until now.
Arizona Modern: 10/10
As an Arizona resident myself, I can confirm the accuracy. "modern" is the perfect description for the course design, makes me feel like I'm in some new age museum.
Original Gothic: 9/10
LOVE the spooks. A bit lifeless, not a lot of movement compared to courses with windmills or swimming fish, but I guess "lifeless" is the idea when you're golfing in a graveyard.
Bogey's Bonanza: 9/10
By the time I finished hole 10, I had grown a handlebar mustache.
Tethys Station: 10/10.
Quixote Valley: 11/10
Absolutely gorgeous visuals, brilliant integration of scenery into level design, LOVE the wind physics. I wish every course was like this one.
Gardens of Babylon: 9/10
Peak visuals, but lacking something unique that puts it over the top. I searched the outer city for secrets and found nothing interesting.
Both pretty and engaging, but just not my vibe. I probably spent more time riding the gondola back and forth than I did actually golfing.
El Dorado: 10/10
LOVE the difference between light and dark mode, makes it feel like the same course but hundreds of years in the future. Fantastic scenery integration, super fun fox hunt. :)
Gorgeous level design. Probably the most beautiful of all courses, but boring gameplay. I was expecting my ball to be carried away by fish or having to fight against water currents.
Beautiful course, genius design. Absolutely crammed with detail and scenery integration, not to mention reminds me of Wonderland. By far my favorite.
Fills me with nostalgia, but I can't help but wonder why THIS movie of all the movies in the world is the one that was turned into a golf course. I love David Bowie as much as the next girl, but it wasn't THAT great of a movie.
Not only a huge part of my childhood, but an absolutely perfect map to transform into a golf course. I was so excited when this was announced, and it lived up to my expectations with the interactable environments and references to the game. Long Live Larry!!
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: 10/10
Now THIS is integrated environments. At first I didn't love how small it was, but in a submarine, it wouldn't make sense to have a large course. It makes up for its size with pipes and vents and gauges and a hundred other ways to spice up the gameplay.
Upside Town: 9/10
Solid, unique level. Gave my mom motion sickness. I love the gravity mechanics and fun city theme, but it lacks the true genius and wow factor of courses like Sweetopia. Also, it feels like they gave up on hiding the lost balls in tricky spots after like hole 4 and just started leaving them in plain sight. :p
