Golf Clash chooses your opponents based on the opponent with the closest trophy count to your recent highest trophy count. So, you may end up playing opponents of different ranks. Your opponent may or may not have a profile picture (enabled using Facebook). Below the profile picture, the top banner shows the golfer's trophy count and their rank, such as green for Rookie, blue for Professional, and gold for Expert.
Below the top banner, a player’s profile will show banners if they were a qualifier or finalist for a tournament. The banner color indicates the tourney rank type, such as Green for Rookie or blue for Pro.The native platforms for Golf Clash are mobile devices that use Android OS and Apple iOS. You should install the Golf Clash app from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store, just like you download and install other apps. Golf Clash also supports a web interface. To use the web interface, first log into your FaceBook account on the Chrome or Edge web browser and open a new tab and access this URL: http://apps.facebook.com/golfking/ .
This web page provides these major sections:
In the lower-left, tap the golf bag button.
To compare the characteristics of a different club to your selected club using the Golf Clash user interface, view this short PDF guide. Keep reading this page for guidance about clubs.
The chests you unlock have various cards for different clubs. There are several types of free chests and some prize chests - all contain club cards. The most common are the Common cards (blue outline), some Rare cards (yellow outline), and sometimes an Epic card (purple outline). When you first start, you should not spend coins on club cards, but do spend coins to upgrade certain clubs.
There are three phases of managing your clubs:
In general, only upgrade the clubs you will keep for a while. To upgrade, you need to spend some coins, so be thrifty!
Move off Beginner clubs quickly!
This summary on club selection is for Rookies/Professionals/Expert 1-2. Clubs get unlocked when opening various chests. Many clubs are only unlocked at certain tour levels and above, such as Tour 3 or 6. These are the clubs you should consider upgrading:
There are many guides about club characteristics:
If you use multiple bags, choose the bag you will use for each hole before you shoot your first shot, To use multiple golf bags, here is a Reddit guide: Quick Guide to Multiple Golf Bags.
This video explains a method to effectively use Endbringer (or Rapier) wedges: Endbringer school. For example, on a smooth green, this method minimizes flight time (and more roll) by aiming the landing spot farther from the pin. This minimizes the effect of the wind and non-perfect shots.
This video explains effective use of Sand wedges and rough irons: The Rough Iron and Sand Wedge Method .
General suggestions for ball selection: In the lower-left, tap the golf bag button and then tap the Balls tab in the upper-right. You can view the characteristics of balls, your count of each, and change the selected ball.
As you progress into higher tours, use the more advanced balls.
When in doubt or for most Par 3 holes, use a Marlin (25 gems for 9 balls). It has level 1 wind resistance and level 1 sidespin. For longer Par 4 and 5 holes, choosing a ball with power can help. You will get some free balls in chests, so use them when needed on longer holes. You might use the Navigator (60 gems per 9 balls): wind resistance 2, power I, and sidespin 1. If you need more sidespin 2 (and wind I), choose the Quasar for the same cost.
Remember you can curl your shot as well as apply sidespin!
The characteristics of the standard golf balls are:
|Ball Name||Wind Resistance||Side Spin||Power|
For more details about choosing balls, see Mang's guide to ball stats on Reddit.
General suggestion about coin management: do not spend more than 10-20% at any one time. That is, do not spend more than 1/10th or 1/5th of your coins.
You pay money to buy gems, and you can use gems to buy coins. You need coins to upgrade the level of your clubs. Do not pay money to buy gems unless it is part of a special bundle deal where you also get coins or balls for free. Avoid spending your gems whenever possible! But you may need to use gems to buy golf balls or once in a while buy a chest.
For more guidance, view these guides: Gem/coin management guides on Reddit
All aspects of the game are important, but on long holes your first (driver) shot is usually critical. It is important to stay on the fairway on your first shot. If you end up in the rough or sand trap (bunker), your next shot will be limited in distance. If you hit the drive into the water or out-of-bounds, you lose one shot.
So be careful with your first shot! If you take risks that land your ball in the rough, bunker, or water, your opponent will likely reach the green before you do and win the hole. On long holes, you might choose a golf ball with extra power.
Before you start playing on Tour 3 and above, begin to learn about the ring system as defined by your landing zone (explained below).
Also remember to manage your level of coins and gems, so you do not go bankrupt!.
You should learn the elevation of holes on the tours you will play.
Before you start playing on Tour 4 and above, start to learn about the ring system that is part of your landing zone.
On the left of the screen when you shoot is Wind direction and the Wind speed. These factors do not influence your ball's landing zone (circles) nor your ball's guide line. With windy conditions and elevation changes, you should adjust the landing zone, and consider adjusting how hard you shoot, sidespin or curl. Holes beginning with Tour 3 have wind and/or elevation changes. A downhill shot with a negative elevation percentage (%) will increase how much the wind influences your shot, because the ball is in the air longer.
The accuracy of the club and the distance of the shot determines how large each ring in the landing zone is. For example, a club with 50% accuracy will have larger rings than a club with 95% accuracy, so you need to adjust the landing zone differently.
You should know the accuracy of each of your clubs. In addition, create a printout of your clubs and rings from the golfclashnotebook.io too (explained below) or use interactive tools.
To learn about the landing ring system to offset wind and how to use it, view guides on YouTube:
Figuring out the elevation is important, especially for long shots. Elevation influences how long the ball is in the air. For example, for a downhill shot, you need to add more distance to the ring adjustment for the landing spot. This is called an adjustment. You can try to guess elevation based on your view of the hole or consult sources such as:
Tools you can use interactively to calculate the rings to adjust the landing spot include:
After you adjust your landing position, you should also adjust for the Secondary Wind Effect. Using one or more of these methods:
For more information about countering secondary wind effects, see this guide by Zach Jones: Learning about Secondary Wind Effects.
You pay a 10k coins entrance fee to play in a Rookie division full tournament. 100k is needed for a Pro full tournament. A 9-hole tournament is about half that amount.
Each tournament has practice holes available a few days before the tournament starts. Tap the Practice tab to start playing practice holes. Choose which division you will use, such as Rookie, Professional, Expert, or Masters.
Full tournaments occur about every 2 weeks:
There are separate tournament divisions for Rookie, Professional, Expert, and Masters, where entry fees and per-hole fees increase as the skill increases. Anyone can enter the Rookie division. Leagues are formed based on your chosen tournament rank and tier within that rank. That is, you are placed in a league bracket with others of similar experience - there are three tiers for each tournament division.
The 9-hole tournaments have two days of a Qualifying round and a one-day Final round. All rounds are 9 holes. The 9-hole tournament prizes are less than a full tournament.
Within each Rookie, Pro, or Expert level, there are three tiers, denoted by 1-, 2-, or 3-stars. Your tier appears when you play practice or a tournament. It also appears on your tournament banners. The least competitive is 1 star and the most competitive is 3 stars. Your cumulative results over the last 20 tournaments determine your tier rank. The higher you place, the more likely it is that your tier will increase. Prizes are higher for the tier 3 than tier 1.
In weekly tour play, try to get promoted as quickly as possible, such as from Rookie 3 to Pro 1, or Pro 2 to Pro 3. This does not influence your tournament placement, which uses the tier system.
For general information about doing well in tournaments, see this this guide by Golf Clash Tommy.

Choose your golf ball carefully during a tournament. For Par 3 holes, you can often use lower-power balls with adequate side-spin and wind resistance. For Par 5 holes, use a Power 2-3 ball if available. For certain holes, choose a ball with sidespin can minimize how much curl you need to apply to the shot. Many of us save our best premium golf balls for tournamenrts.
