Free Online Golf Games

For the avid golfer who's also a fan of video games — either on the computer or on a console — there are a lot of professional golf simulation games available on the market, but there's also a plethora of free online games that harken to that favored sport.

Although some may wax nostalgic about such classic games as Windows 98's "Jezzball," or Windows ME's Pinball games, there are still a number of flash games on sites like Kongregate that simulate all the joy of those golf-inspired classics.

Check out the following six games that are not only free, but sure to entertain and challenge for hours with six unique takes on the classic "sink the ball in the hole" game.

Wonderputt is the most popular golf game on Kongregate with over 3 million unique gameplays since it launched in 2011.

The developers of this game call it "adventure golf… but with cows, toads, ski slopes, torpedos and a sprinkle of alien abduction for good measure," and Kongregate features three earnable achievements to accompany gameplay.

This game only requires a mouse (or scroll pad) to play, and the mechanics are pretty easy to get used to! More »

If you're looking for a mini-golf experience that's a little more out there, "Gravitee" takes golfing interstellar — with gravity as one of the mechanics of gameplay! In this game, your goal is to get the ball into a hole on another planet by using an appropriate amount of force and angle and each planet's gravitational pull to guide the ball to its destination.

The game developers describe the game as "golf in space, using real world Newtonian Physics," and fortunately it comes with a quick tutorial to guide new players through the basics.  More »

It looks like "Gravitee" was such a weighty success that Kongregate and game developer Funky Pear decided to unleash "Gravitee 2" with 40 all-new levels of gameplay!

Kongregate has three achievements you can earn if you have an account, but the game itself also features four different game play types and 90 awards to win. More »

If you're looking for a flash game with more of a retro aesthetic but modern play style, "Turbo Golf" may be the game you're after! 

The developer TurboNuke describes it as "golf like you’ve never played it before. Sure, get the ball in the hole, but this is a race… hit the ball, then run to where it lands!"

With three Kongregate achievements, upgrades, and a whole new element of racing to golf, this game is sure to provide loads of fun. More »

 Although this version is a bit more childlike, the gameplay is rather fun once you get the hang of it — plus "Pirate Golf Adventure" literally allows you to go on a pirate adventure with golf!

Although there are no Kongregate achievements for this game, there are hours of fun to be had figuring out how to collect all the coins on each level and adventuring through the seven seas with the main character. More »

 Finally, if you're looking for something a little more realistic and based on the actual mechanics of being on a golf course, you'll have to sign up for a site that's dedicated to online play with better graphics than Kongregate.

"World Golf Tour" offers everything an avid golf gamer would ever need in a free online game — though perks come with a price. Still, it's better to buy a PC or Mac golf game than to rely on free online services of this size as speeds often lag when too many people sign on at once. More »
