Golf Club: Wasteland iPad, thumbnail 1
This is golf, but not as you know it. The manicured courses of green grass that would have Trump reaching for his favourite wedge are long dead. In their place lie the ruins of our civilisation – the craziest golf course there is. The players? Those who can afford an intergalactic sojourn to our dead planet. The only ones who survived the apocalypse. The super rich, of course.

Your inkling that this isn’t the latest Tiger-endorsed PGA game is bang on. Released in June 2018, Golf Club: Wasteland is a laid-back, sci-fi game for iOS. Its premise – whilst doom-laden – is heavy on the satire. You’re one of the lucky few who escaped to Tesla City on Mars before the cataclysmic event, but your nostalgia for Earth brings you back, suited in astronaut gear and wielding your best set of irons.



You move from course to course, altering the strength and angle of your swing with a touch, guiding your golf ball into the hole (preferably under par). The courses are constructed out of the abandoned wasteland of humanity – everything from empty diners to dilapidated hotels, all under the atmospheric haze of neon lights. Some objects are interactive, offering secret short-cuts, while others will ruin your shot.

Throughout your post-apocalyptic putting, you’re accompanied by Radio Nostalgia from Mars, a station dedicated to playing the golden oldies from the 2020s. The music and the rose-tinted recollections of life then and now were created as a collaboration between musician Shane Berry and the game’s developer Demagog Studio. It really adds depth to the narrative, and the appropriately moody soundtrack is available from streaming platforms.



The minimal interface of Golf Club: Wasteland allows the graphics to shine; cell-shaded nocturnal environments, prettily rendered with little satirical nods to contemporary issues. The relaxed pace is a soothing change from endless runners and run-and-gunners. It’s just you, your club and the odd radioactive giraffe.

Even if you aren’t into golf games, you’ll find something to love about Golf Club: Wasteland. If you missed the initial release, catch up on the chilled-out fun by downloading the game from iTunes.
