You Found It!
Ah, great game, along with Seven Seas Solitaire, easily one of my favorites. To give it 5 stars I would like to hear more banter with the MC's. This was my first 'solitaire with a theme' game I've played, have tried a lot of the others. I don't know, I just like the action without a lot of clutter, the variety of spreads and those oh so lame jokes lol. I'm developing a real passion to whacking the gopher, you should grow to really dislike the little fella! Needs a way to permantly save profiles though. Lost three whole pages of games, money, and golf tournament aides when puter crashed, not once but twice! Ouch. Highly recommend this game!

This is a very fun solitaire game even if you don't like golf. But, I don't understand why they charge you double for it being called a collectors edition.

Less funny, but more games
You get twice as many courses in Fairway Collector's Edition, but it is not as nearly as funny as the standard edition, Had I noticed it wasn't as funny, I would have bought the standard edition.
But I do enjoy the game. It is quite easy to earn enough to buy power-ups. You can earn trophies and if you are a hard core player, try to beat records.
The Chronicles of Emerland is similar to this game, but it has a hidden object scene every few hands. I just finished it and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Not Collector edition quality
I like the Fairway games, but I was very disappointed as collector's edition version. The first game offered more (game verisons and gopher problems). This collectors edition would be fine as a regular game, but I felt I was robbed of an extra game credit for this purchase. Purchase the regular edition only, and you may get your moneys worth.

It's unfortunate that the PC version isn't the same as the iPhone/iPad version

Fairway Collector's Edition is not worth buying
I already had the original for the PC. Once I accomplished all of the goals and won all of the trophies, I though this would be a way to get new challenges. Turns out there are no new trophies, no new golf shop items, nothing more than a bunch of new games. If I just wanted to play the card game, I could have replayed the games I already had. You don't even get the $5,000 point bonus once you clear the board. Just not worth the money!!!! :(

Impressed at beginning but...
I enjoyed the game up to level 29 of 426 but then found 30 too difficult to complete even after playing the same level dozens of times over a week! I encountered the same problem with the original Fairway Solitaire - unable to finish levels - but could go further.

I own the first Fairway, and love it. My favorite part of the game is the commentators, who I find hilarious. I played the demo, and the new guys ruined it for me. They are not funny, at all. It's the same card game. There seems to be a gopher theme, but it doesn't play any different. I won't buy this game.

Fair? Not this game
Let me start by saying I enjoy a good challenge. I find time management a good genre to play when you seek that. But solitaire? Yes, it should be a challenge - but not like this. I play solitaire in the evenings to unwind from a long day. I originally loved this game and that is why I had bought it, the CE no less.
However, I wish I had played it longer before buying cause it is not an enjoyable game.
Let me start with what is good about. The graphics are nice and the voice-overs are often comical. But that's about it.
You need a LOT of money to buy even the basic items from the golf shop and you WILL need a lot of items just to complete the higher levels.
Solitaire is a game of luck, no question. But this game goes further than that. You can't proceed to the next level unless you finish the game according to the limits, which I find are often not realistic. You have to count on luck, pure and simple. I don't play solitaire 'hoping' I will do good enough to satisfy the developers. At the very least, they should have given people the options when it comes to difficulty.
IF you like an endlessly frustrating challenge, you'll like this game. If you like to relax and still have a bit of a challenge, you will not.
I'm not saying I want a card game a five year old can play and win - that defeats the challenge. But any game that requires you to play over a dozen of the same hands just to progress (rather than just a few times) is not worth it IMO.
Based on all the 5 star reviews I was misled IMO, which isn't often here on BFG.
