Clap Hanz is a studio closely affiliated with PlayStation, producing hugely popular games Everyone’s Golf / Golf Shots Hot over many generations (for more than 20+ years). It recently loosened its swing and went a different route, however, releasing Clap Hanz Golf on Apple Arcade. That’s the title that has now been moved Golf Easy Come Easy; yes, the brand identity with this developer can be mixed up a bit.

For those who have never gotten into PlayStation games, this is a welcome opportunity to experience the studio’s blend of easy-to-see visuals, cartoon caricatures, and addictive golf. It’s a delicate round of play for sure, and thanks to those smart device origins, it supports multiple ways of playing – you can choose to control the touchscreen swipe in mobile mode, while on the controller , you can use the club swing or the more classic three-button press. It’s all functional for sure, but this reviewer is an affirmative that golf games are played with a three-tap watch and it works great here.

The difference in this game is that you are building a golf team, consisting of some particularly quirky characters, and they hit one hole each within nine holes. You start with a small group and temporary ‘mini’ players, so the main goal is to switch to ‘Visit’ mode to level up, unlock more characters and level up your team. It’s a huge campaign (of sorts), with progression to unlock more courses and characters – while also upgrading the ones you have – very gradually; you will need to settle down for a long period of time. It has a bit of a mobile feel (like the challenges that spin every day) but isn’t affected by the microtransaction design, thankfully, and the difficulty is mild at first as you learn the game.

The team you unlock and level up can also be put into a number of other areas, such as ‘World Tournament’ and ‘Online Battle’. The World Tournament offers limited-time challenges to take on as you try to get to the top of the online leaderboards. Online matches can be played against Random or you can set up/join password protected rooms which is great for socializing with friends.

We can jump into a random match nicely and quickly, where one player is a veteran with a high ranked golfer but another just getting started. Character levels make a big difference in performance, so there might be mismatches but it’s very normal and comfortable past a few holes. You can share expressions of support that helped make it such a compelling experience; if you want to join the game serious online, you need to solve the Tournament.

Interestingly, the game is also loaded with other modes. ‘Bring the club’ / ‘Pass the club’ are two local multiplayer services that allow you to share systems and controllers, or play against other people in the room using their own clones. You can also choose from all the characters and courses in these modes, which is a nice touch considering how long it takes to naturally unlock things through Tours. In addition, there are challenge modes called ‘Survival’ and ‘Score Attack’; These are beautiful creases and perfect for some pick and play games. Plus unlockable, interesting variations in course conditions, along with customization options for much And there’s a lot of great content.

The gameplay of the game is also quite good, most importantly. The courses are quite practical in approach, so don’t expect the kind of quirks you come across Mario Golf: Super Rush, but they’re fun and increasingly challenging. There are many of them and as you learn the mechanics and master new techniques you will find courses to really put you to the test. Sometimes some physics of the ball can scornful quirky, but once you dial into the game, it feels like a great round of mini golf. There’s a great balance to play – it can be a casual game for short and occasional bursts, or you can just stick around and explore different techniques in the giant Tour mode .

Performance is probably the only area with some negatives. It’s authoritative, but the game’s engine is clearly suited for capable Apple devices., as it struggles a bit on the Switch – even making the time on change small bit late. We’ve adjusted to it in the end, but you’re looking at a 30 fps experience that drops from time to time. If you try to skip too many animations or quickly scroll through the game, the game may also crash and the game crashes once. To be clear, the Easy Come Easy Golf plays well overall, and visually it’s beautiful, but it’s just below ideal optimization. In fact, the sound gets a bit more aggravating, too, with the unbelievably cheerful music getting old pretty quickly. That said, this game is perfect for relaxing mobile play with TV or music in the background.


Easy Come Easy Golf, all of that taken into account, is highly recommendable for golf fans and is Nintendo’s great introduction to the Everybody’s Golf line. It’s fun and polished golf with some fun gameplay while offering a huge amount of content to unlock and solid multiplayer options. Even with minor performance hiccups and some poor audio, we found ourselves happy and kept coming back for a few more holes. It’s definitely underrated, in a good way.
