Want to play a casual golf game on mobile against real players, but one where the “real players” aren’t necessarily named Tiger Woods? You know what we’re talking about here – Playdemic’s Android and iOS title Golf Clash is not one of those hardcore sports games where you’ll be dealing with tons of ratings, numbers, and real-life PGA stars. It’s a more casual title where the focus is on getting social, facing human opponents in real-time, one-on-one golf battles. And it’ll be all about how well you time your shots and how well you upgrade your clubs – it’s mostly skill-based, not ratings-based, and that’s one more reason this should be your golf game of choice if you’re into the casual gaming thing.
So how can you properly time those shots? How do the upgrades work? You want to beat more opponents, of course, and you need to do those two things in order to achieve success in this game. But we’ve got what you need if you want to improve your mobile golf game – a list of Golf Clash cheats, tips and tricks. We’ve got a few things you need to keep in mind, so read on and follow these tips the next time you play!
1. Use The Right Amount Of Power
There really isn’t much to the regular shot stage of the game. But it can get tricky if you’re a beginner, and we can show you what you need to do. At this regular stage, you will be asked to pull the ball into the circle, and as you do this, you should look out for the target circle turning blue. That’s how the game will tell you that you’ve got the right mix of power and distance. But there may be instances where you’ll need to add a little more power to get a better shot off. The game will let you go a little further and keep pulling the ball back, and once you do this, don’t panic just yet, even as the target circle may try to throw you off and the power arrow moves even faster. Yes, there’s a risk that you will miss the shot badly, but if you increase the power and pull the ball back ever-so-slightly, you might end up making a better shot.
As a bonus tip, here’s how you can use the right amount of power when putting. You’ll want to ensure that the glowing path is parallel to the hole. The hole flag will go up and the hole will glow blue, similar to how the targeting circle does so above, once you’ve got the right amount of power in.
2. How To Upgrade Your Clubs
As we mentioned in the game’s overview, it’s mostly about your own skill, and not any special character ratings and statistics. That means that if there are two players with similar skills and just the right timing and power, the deciding factor will be the quality of clubs, which is something you can control through upgrades. So how does the upgrading mechanic work in Golf Clash?
For starters, you will be getting chests as you keep challenging more opponents and completing games. You’ll first need to unlock the chests before redeeming the freebies found inside, and this could take a while – you need to be patient here. Open chests at the moment you receive them, and make sure you do this if you don’t want to have a long list of chests “waiting in line” to be opened. You will mainly get coins and gems when you open the chests, but aside from that, you can also get new clubs. Getting the same club when you open another chest will allow you to get “parts” for the club, and when you’ve got enough parts for the club, you can improve its stats through upgrades. Clubs can be used immediately once you unlock them, but make sure they’re upgraded regularly.
3. How Do The Balls Work?
Aside from your clubs, balls can also influence your success on the game, though we should reiterate that this is a game of skill, not a game of stats. Golf balls don’t just come with statistical boosts, but also have special skills, such as Sidespin, which allows you to do just that – have balls that spin sideways once you shoot them, and Wind Resistance, which cuts down the wind resistance after shooting. But take note that balls are not permanent items; once you use them in a match, they’re gone for good. You can only buy them in the shop in the form of packs, and you’ll need to spend gems, the premium currency, to buy them.

4. The Spin Is Like Your Curveball
Well, not really, as curveballs aren’t as fast as fastballs, and are mainly meant to throw opposing batters off with their spin. But you get the idea – in Golf Clash, top spin and backspin are fancy techniques, trick shots of sorts, and you can use both to make balls spin in a certain direction faster, while slightly changing the path of the ball. Sideways spin is available in one of the above-mentioned special balls. It’s not mandatory to use any kind of spin when shooting the ball, but if you can master the art of the spin, it’s going to help you beat more opponents.
5. How To Get More Chests
We mentioned chests and gems above, the former containing the latter, among other goodies, and the latter being your premium currency which you will use to buy balls. How can you get more of each? The first method would be to aim for a high ranking in league play. Each time you move up in rank, you’ll have a better chance to get more cards inside the chests. You can also complete achievements, which are completed by playing the game naturally; some of them will give you gems as a reward. And lastly, connecting your game to Facebook will reward you with a free Platinum Chest as a freebie.
