Instructions of the game
This game is presented to players as a modified type of solitaire that has a golf theme. Players use playing cards and golf clubs to clear the table. The main goal of the game is to clear through a collection of 70 courses with different challenges per course. When one challenge is met, it unlocks the next course enabling the player to advance.

Their scores are recorded and graded against all the other players on the matching platform and the statistics form the basis on achievements and awarding of trophies.
Each course has sand traps and water hazards which the player is expected to clear. Sand traps or sand cards are only revealed after the sand wedge card has been uncovered.
