4 More Tips For Dominating the Courses in Golf Clash
As someone relatively new to mobile gaming, I've been trying out a number of mobile titles lately. And so far one of the most addicting ones has been Golf Clash.
Golf Clash is a golfing game on both iOS and Android that puts you in a 1v1 battle to see who has better timing and precision on the golf course. As you play through the game you collect trophies, acquire chests with upgrades, and unlock new clubs and golf balls -- each with their own special properties.
To build on a set of tips for Golf Clash, let's take a look at 4 more ways that you can improve your game and gain an edge on the competition.
1. Upgrade those clubs
As you get chests -- either from winning or the free chests that are given out regularly -- you'll eventually start unlocking new clubs. Swap to these new clubs asap! Even the most basic club is better than the clubs you start with. As you continue to win you'll eventually get more of the club cards, allowing you to upgrade that club's specs and make it even better.
Now, don't go upgrading every club that you have, because it costs coins and the cost increases with every upgrade level. The clubs that you should focus on upgrading are your driver and putter, as you'll almost always use these.
2. Earn those trophies
Aside from showing other players that you're a Golf Clash badass, trophies are important for getting chests. Each of the golf tours has a maximum number of trophies that can be won on that specific tour. The breakdown looks like this:
- Tour 1 - Beginner - 20 trophy max
- Tour 2 - West Coast - 50 trophy max
- Tour 3 - Asia Pacific - 100 trophy max
- Tour 4 - 6-Star Hotel - 200 trophy max
- Tour 5 - World Links - 300 trophy max
- Tour 6 - U.S. Champions - 500 trophy max
You might not be able to get any more trophies from playing at a lower level, but you can still earn coins on those tours -- which is helpful if you fall low on funds.
3. Keep up with the chests (and grab freebies)
It's important to keep up with unlocking your chests, as the chests have coins, gems, clubs, and upgraded balls in them. There are a number of ways to get chests, as well as a variety of chests to obtain.
The basic chests are Wood, Silver, Gold, and Platinum chests. You can get these basic chests from climbing the leaderboards and winning matches. You can also score a free Platinum chest for linking your Golf Clash with your Facebook account.
There's also the King chest and the Pin chest. The King chest is only attainable through in-app purchase, but boasts at least 5 epic cards and 24 rare cards (with a total of 61 cards). The Pin chest is a special chest that you get after 8 successful putts.
Make sure to start unlocking chests as soon as you can to avoid getting backed up and missing out on earning more chests. Silver chests are the most common, and take 4 hours to unlock -- or 20 gems if you're willing to spend some money.
4. Keep an eye on your coins
Money makes the world go round, and that's not an exception in Golf Clash. Every time you enter a match there is an entrance fee. It also costs money to upgrade those clubs. So how can you keep the cash flowing? Well, the obvious answer is to win your matches -- but there are other ways of making that wallet grow.
Yet another reason to keep up with your chests is that they earn you coins each time you open one. You can also sit through some ads to gain a few coins. And lastly, you could purchase some coins on the in-app market if you don't mind spending real-world money for some virtual fun.
Hopefully, these tips help you to play the game better so get out there and play some golf! I look forward to seeing you on the green and if you have any tips you'd like to share, don't hesitate to drop them in the comments below!
