3) Golf Links

This is a fantastic game whether you just have a little bit of time to kill, or if you’re trying to kill a lot of time or just looking to have some fun.  That’s because Golf Links offers one of the easiest to play and immersive experiences just because you can choose a 9 hole course, 18 hole, or continuous never-ending play as well.  Plus it’s a flash game also, so there’s no need to install anything on your computer, you just go to the website and you’re ready to play.

4) Mini Golf Classic

The same website, CandyStand.com that makes Golf Links, also offers up a challenging mini-golf course as well, so that you can test your mettle against some of the craziest contraptions you’ll encounter on any type of course.  Plus it’s also a flash game, so that there’s no need for you to install anything onto your system. What’s more, you’re going to find that the course setup and design is incredibly varied, and more importantly, incredibly fun. 

5) 3D Championship Golf

While not an online golf game that’s going to win any beauty contests, what this does offer is an incredibly accurate golfing experience that any golfer is really going to be able to enjoy.  With a game like this, you can ensure that it really feels as though you’re playing a game, with authentic controls, conditions, and even course water hazards and sand bunkers.   That way, you can be sure that things are going to stay challenging, no matter your skill level, which is a part of what makes golf so much fun.

6) Tiger Woods PGA Tour

This is a classic golf game that’s been around for several years, and has a massive offline component in addition to online.  You’ll find that you can get Tiger Woods PGA Tour for your computer, but also for home videogame consoles as well like Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii.  You’ll find some of the best graphics as well as the smoothest controls for replicating the true golfer experience, and plenty of opportunities to challenge friends and strangers abroad online.

Of course, this is also the most expensive game, as it costs quite a bit out of the box just to buy in the first place.  What you’re also going to find is that you have to have a pretty good computer to be able to really play the game at all, or you have to have an expensive home video game console, which is not always ideal for everyone.
