I’m not a great golfer. Actually, that’s an exaggeration. I’m a terrible golfer. But I have on occasion experienced the joy of hitting the sweet spot, that delicious smack between club and the ball that tells you it’s going to fly just where you intended.

Like many games of this type, Par 72 Golf features the familiar power bar for the golf swing. Press the spacebar once, and the power level starts to increase. Press it again at just the right moment to set the power for your swing and watch it fly.
Swing it with the spacebar
Once you are close to the hole, the game switches over to a putting green to let you sink the ball.
Just tap it in
The sound effects are done well, and pretty much what you would expect from the swing, the smack, and the satisfying rattle of the ball into the hole.
Par 72 Golf features a free trial that let’s you play the first hole. If you like it, you can unlock the rest of them with a license key.
