I was compelled to make a thread for the game after playing it on a recent plane trip. It's so good! It has so much heart and personality. Anyone else finding the joy in this game?

I'm really enjoying it, the wacky characters and dialogue really make it. And the golf is decent too! I wish some of the quests had a little more variety (they mostly boil down to "Hit the ball to 'X' spot") but it is a great little indie game. And a true exclusive too! Everyone with a Switch should support it.

That looks amazing. This is the second game on the Switch that's got me intrigued. A few more and I might consider getting the console.

This 100%. The game has made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion.

Having a lot of fun with Golf Story but have hit a wall. The only issue I have with the game is putting/the incline of the greens.

The game is from a top down perspective so you can’t tell how steep a slope is when putting outside of a colored arrow pointing at the angle of the slope and say slight/medium/heavy. Ruining some of my birdie tries having no idea what the slope is like

I just finished the main story and some of the side mission of Golf Story a few days ago and I loved it. I'm going to go back and finish the rest of the side missions to satisfy my inner completionist. Overall I enjoyed it much more than I initially thought I would. I knew I would like it but it was the only thing I played for awhile until Stardew Valley came out.

I was shocked at how much I loved this game. It was my travel game over Thanksgiving break and I had a great time. It's the perfect blend of solid sport/golf game play and RPG mechanics. For $15 it is a total must buy in my opinion.
It all began with a Nintendo 64 in 1996...
Now I'm all about that Playstation Nation/PCMR.
