Best golf game on IOS?

I have been looking for a great golf game on the IOS that has multiplayer, and I thought I found it with Let's Golf 3. However, it is not a single purchase game and I want a game that I don't have to open my wallet for every time I wanna play 18 holes. So, I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions, besides Tiger Woods Golf, which has no online multiplayer. I want something I can just pick up and play a few holes on, but if I get the urge, play for more than 4 holes at a time.

Thanks ahead of time for the suggestions!

What do you mean it is not a single purchase game? I noticed it was free last night, but I couldn't download it because the app store was having problems. I should go check it now.

@Mr.Grizzly, you have to pay for more games after playing 1 or 2 games on Lets Golf 3. Gameloft wants your money. D:

Pangya on the PC is far better than any golf game on the iOS so far, but if you really insist on convenience over quality, you could always buy that Gameloft games pack and play Let's Golf 1. I don't think any golf games on the iOS have a very large player-base though. I'm pretty sure that Let's Golf 3 is the only one where you can consistently find multiplayer matches. Maybe Super Stickman Golf, but that's 2D.

Waiting for: Chaos Rings II, Phoenix Wright 123

I quite enjoy Let's Golf 2. But I hear-tell that Gameloft pulled it to try and make more money off LG3.

Pangya / Super Swing Golf is awesome and one can only hope that it will make it to IOS eventually.

Agreed, that would be my dream come true. Getting the PSP version ported to iOS is actually not much of a stretch.

Alternatively, I would be fine if Let's Golf 4 had as much style and required as much skill as Pangya

Tiger Woods is pretty fun but lacks multi, and LG2 is amazing (and my favorite), but it's gone with the release of LG3. Super Stickman Golf is pretty great, but not the same feel as the others.

Pangya is fun if you play with timed shots so that you don't get slam dunked against every shot. -_- Haha

Thanks for the input guys! I like Flick Golf, but I prefer to play entire holes and not the mini-game modes that the game offers. Guess I'll have to wait a bit before I start to golf on my Ipod (which might be a good thing productivity-wise). If only I could write to Gameloft to fight for a one-time fee option...

Its definitely not what youre looking for, its gameplay is not Tiger Woods Golfesque at all. But a fun, physics based game is Super Stickman Golf. Its very different from real golf, and its viewed from the side, but actually has quite a golf feel to it. Its at least worth checking out
