The main advantage of the downloadable version is that there are cheat powerups available for purchase. (well, and I find the voice actors are amusing)

Also, the online game doesn't appear to have the minigames (which isn't a huge loss but it breaks up the game a little bit).

I know that some of the courses are in a different order but do not know if there are more online or not.

I've really gotten into this game! But so far, I haven't found any way to buy extra cheats--unless you mean the clothing?

What's everyone's longest drive?

I enjoy the actors, too, and the course sounds. And, as someone who works alone in her home office, I do enjoy the applause! tee hee

Ah, you mean the measure-by-feet drive. I don't know mind. How about the "number of cards" drive?

I hated it when the gopher nailed me and all my goodies!

I just loved this game! The sad part about it is, it doesn't work on my computor. I even called Big Fish and they told me that sometimes the games doesn't work on some computors. They were vere sweet to me because I had bought the game. They gave me a free credit. It pays to ask!!!

HUH? Successfully did it BUT

Hi Folks

I am VERY confused ; I have played the Cove Town course 2x now with the first time listing me as being +6 and it states that a person must finish this course at +2 OR BETTER to unlock West Lake but it WON'T unlock the next course

I then thought that maybe the score had to be +2 or better on the very LAST round of the course -- which surprisingly I did at +2 -- but it STILL WON'T unlock the West Lake golf course!

Any ideas as to why the game won't let me continue on to the next golf course?

P.S. I have to admit that this card game (which I almost did not buy because I have the Hoyle Solitaire Game) is VERY addictive and quite fun -- it makes you look and to strategize.

P.S.S. To someone who wanted to know how to get the 20-length long drive in a round to unlock the next course -- use the golf clubs to extend the shot.

+2 or better, meaning in golf terms, so that means +2 is the highest the score should be. Ideally, your score should be +1, par, -1, -2, -3 (etc).

Stupid golf hahahaha

Hi Folks

After playing this course a couple times more, it finally let me through but I had an "under par" score so I just said fine and moved on; I figured that -- since I know NOTHING about golf -- that +2 had to have some kind of relation to under par scores.

My BIGGEST problem right now is another course (2 or 3 courses down, it's in the jungle - Amazon, if I remember right) and in order to unlock the next course, a person has to get a long drive of 18; I get 16, 17 but yet have I gotten 18 and the very last time I played last night before having to shut down and go to work -- I'd played the long drive and then ADDED 2x to THAT long drive more long drives and actually used ALL my golf clubs and I STILL get only 17.

I presume that 18 is possible but at this moment in time, I am not understanding how; will keep trying, though because I REALLY like this silly game.

Are you using your clubs in your golf bag when you try to make the long drives? That's the only way that I can make them. And I had a hard time making 12! But with the clubs in the golf thingy, I think 18 should be reachable.

I love this game!

I honestly don't see the point of trying to play solitaire when this game is more about golf, which is one sport that I don't like at all. I like almost any other sport. Why can't someone come up with as really good solitaire game?? I would love to have one if there was good information on how to play it was provided. A lot of the ones I have seen here and elsewhere just assume you know how all the various types of solitaire function.

CAn someone please tell me how I can learn to play? I do not understand the scoring. I do not understand the purse. Please help cause the basic premise is fun, but so confusing and unclear with no help.

Hi Meribethp

I'm new to Fairway Solitaire myself. It's quite addictive, and you can still enjoy the game without golfing knowledge. I don't have much, but I'll tell you what I know and hopefully it can help you until someone comes along who is more knowledgeable!

Each golf course has 9 "levels", a few have 18 "levels". Each of those levels is a "hole". PAR is the number of strokes taken to complete that hole. A new stroke is when you start a new run. So if the level indicates PAR 5, the hole can be completed in 5 runs.

The only part of scoring I understand is that minus scores means you have finished the hole under par. Plus scores means you have finished over par and a zero means you have finished equal to par. I don't know which of these are assigned to Eagles, Birdies and Bogeys!

As you play you will collect numbered golf clubs. You can add these to your cards to make longer runs, but it would be advisable to keep as many of them as possible. Some of your objectives require a long run to unlock the next course.

The money you earn can be used to buy items from the golf shop. These are like power-ups. I haven't got many of these yet.

Anyhow, I hope this has helped you in some way.

Lyndy's got all the pertinent points, but I can fill in a few things:

NEGATIVE scoring is good!

Getting a PERFECT score (clearing all the cards) will get you at least a birdie, but you can get up to a triple eagle, depending on the difficulty level of the "hole".

Par = meeting the goal of the "hole" (one set of cards)
Birdie = one under par (-1)
Eagle = two under par (-2)
Double Eagle = three under par (-3)
Triple Eagle = four under par (-4) <--This is rare!

If you get dealt a really bad set of cards, the worst you can do on a hole is +5 (even if you're actually +12)

Thanks, Genkicoll. Your posts here have clarified things. I used to think that an objective with a +12 or better meant I would win with a +22 final score, lol. Confused when I had to start the course again. Now I know that better means less, not more!
