Golf With Your Friends adds a hilarious new Speed Golf mode

By - | Views: 23,350

Grab your friends and play something resembling Golf in the latest free update to Golf With Your Friends, which adds in a new rather funny looking Speed Golf mode. 

The idea here is to forget about par and the number of shots taken, it's all about how fast you are. It's a furious race to putt your ball before everyone else and score points based on how quickly you can do this. To help with this it brings in a new handbrake feature, letting you slow your ball down at specific moments to set up for another quick shot. And like something out of Sonic or Mario Kart, there's special speed gates to give you a boost.

New Features:

  • Speed is king in the brand new Speed Golf mode! Take your positions on the starting line and race to the hole to claim first place. Speed Golf is available to play online or offline on any course, including all workshop content! Speed Golf can even be experienced in teams play for an all new team racing experience.
  • New game setting options are now available for Speed Golf players. Race to the hole in an anything goes ruleset where only time matters, or add time penalties for every stroke taken to reward both speed and accuracy.
  • All courses have been turbo charged with brand new Turbo Charge Boosters! Passing through boosters allow you to reach speeds and take routes never before possible.
  • Turbo Charge Boosters are also now available to use in the Level Editor in order to turbo charge your own creations!
  • Sometimes slowing down is the best way to speed up. The new handbrake feature allows you to slow your roll, opening up new ways for you to save yourself valuable seconds, or you know, just save yourself.
  • The brand new “Critical Hit” pack (DLC) is now available featuring 10 new cosmetic items based on the spoils of a particularly fruitful party’s campaign. This pack includes 4 Hats, 2 Floaties, 2 Trails and 2 Stickers.

Once again, really happy that this game features both local and online multiplayer.

Huh, that could actually be really funny ^^
For the normal mode, me and my friends really prefer to play via remote play together, as the "normal real multiplayer" ruins a lot of funny moments because everybody plays at once. But this could finally make it worthwhile that we all bought a copy
This looks interesting. I've been playing Golf with Your Friends (off and on) with a friend for years, and we normally like to play by turning the ability to jump on, then trying to break every hole by jumping around the map with pretty much no regard for score, so an "as fast as possible" mode could be pretty fun too.
