This game is designed to be totally addictive. The 'sports announcers' throughout the play sound realistic and have a fun sense of humor. Game play itself varies enough - different course layouts, etc. to keep it interesting. And of course, going for the trophy bonus points adds a challenge. The gopher theme is fun - remember to whack the gopher whenever he pops up to get the 'Terminator' trophy, combined with the gopher cartoon vignettes that are reminiscent of the road runner are very entertaining. Great game - Kudos to the designers!

Review for Fairway Solitaire
This review is for Fairway Solitaire, which I don't see listed anymore on BigFishGames. I felt compelled to share with you how much joy I've gotten from this game. I have been playing it for over a month now.
You don't have to like golf or even understand the scoring system to enjoy this game. There is an announcer with an Australian accent (sometimes hard to understand what he is saying, but that is ok) and you have the ability to turn off the announcer if you'd like. The crowd cheers when you do well and gives a sympathetic "awwww!" when you don't.
There are a few timed courses mixed in, but you can skip them which is good because I am not a big fan of timed games. There are some "long drives" mixed in which also can be skipped (but incur a penalty). I enjoy doing them because you never know what will happen. This is my go-to, relaxing game after I play more challenging ones and I find myself looking forward to it every day. There are tons of course to do, so the game lasts a long, long time.
Very addictive, very fun. I will have to check out the collectors edition.

Solitaire AND a Golf Course Gopher
Caddyshack meets casual games. This game is a lot of fun with many different layouts lots of options. A Cinderella story.......

I first tried the demo and was immediately addicted to this game. I've bought it a week ago and already played for 13 hours!

Very amusing while flipping cards and whacking the gopher when he appears.

This is the game for lovers of fun! Game has different difficulty levels - but who can resist a challenge. And the Gopher! Words cannot decribe his [?] antics - you live and see!
This is not about a game of golf, even though - you learn a lot - but this is just a very addictive, fun time to spend at the Fairways!

This is my first golf solitaire game! I had to have it after my trial time ran out. It has a nice balance of easy and challenging courses and it took me MONTHS to cover every course and bonus courses. It is the most satisfying escape I can think of. It is a great bang for buck because it is highly replayable. I love how relaxing it is but also how I can compete against my old scores. You need this game in your life!

It is like playing golf with Solitaire! Really a fun idea and very different from regular solitaire. It was harder and more challenging to pass the level as you had to be par or under. Was very fun and you had to really choose your cards carefully. I loved it! Go big fish!!!
