Know all the important Terminologies

1. What is a Kingdom in Golf Rival?

A kingdom is an event where you can compete against real players from across the world. Kingdom battles will be unlocked once you reach Stage 9 in the game. The important thing which needs to be considered is the points will be gained for winning and deducted in case of a loss.

2. What are Arena Badges in Golf Rival?

The Wolf badges are a special kind of coins that the player can use in order to purchase items from the Arena Store.

3. What does De-buff mean in Golf Rival?

When the player hits the ball either on the rough, bunker, or slope, he/she can’t hit the next shot with 100% power. There will be a reduction in power and in this case, it would be 20%. Now, some of the balls or clubs have Debuff that minimizes the percentage of power loss.

4. What Happens in case of a draw in Golf Rival?

This is interesting, as after you end up in a draw, both the players will be given a single chance to hit the ball. The one with the ball closer to the hole will win the game.

4 Golf Rival tips and tricks you need to know

1. Balancing the Moving Bar

This is the most crucial and important part of the game as you need to be quick and maintain accuracy as well. In order to strike and reach the desired point, you need to strike the ball when the bar reaches exactly in between. If during the strike, the bar is tilted towards left or right then the ball will reach the left and right side of your desired point respectively.

2. How to aim in Golf Rival?

The player first needs to drag the ball and put under the circle and then try to balance the moving bar. You can drag it outside the circle but it will become very difficult to balance the bar as it will move very fast. The ball will go for an extra 15-20 yards if you can drag the ball outside the circle and balance the bar at the time of the shot. You need to time it perfectly to succeed and be clear that there are no shortcuts.

The bounce of the ball should also be taken into consideration when you aim the ball to the farthest point. The bounce depends upon the ground type. So if it’s a rough surface then the ball will bounce a lot and can change directions.

3. How to unlock a new stage?

For every stage, the players need to add-up sufficient trophies to go to the next stage. When a stage is unlocked, you can tap the “PLAY” button to start a game in that particular stage. When it’s locked, you will find the button greyed out with the trophy requirement on it. You can check the button to find the minimum trophies required for each stage (e.g. at least 200 trophies are needed to unlock stage 2).

4. How to unlock a new Club?

Unlocking the club becomes very essential when you proceed in the game. Generally, golf clubs are used for a particular shot, and for that, you need to know the average distance you hit a ball with each golf club in your set. Then, you simply choose the golf club that fits the distance you need to hit. In this Golf Rival Guide and tips, I am mentioning 4 ways to do the same:

  • Simply complete all the missions to complete quests and open Pin chests.
  • There is a high probability of Chests containing club cards. So you can purchase chests by using diamonds in the store. This way can only be useful when you have enough diamonds available with you.
  • There is another way of getting chests as a reward and that is by winning matches in any mode.
  • If you want to buy with actual money then you can directly purchase club cards directly in the daily deals.

Which Ball should be used for the following situations:

1. Lower the wind effect?

The major concern pops up when the wind comes into the picture as it becomes really difficult to take a proper shot. In this Golf Rial Guide and tips, we suggest using the “Bat Balls”, as it reduces the wind effect.

2. Increase Power in rough areas?

The condition becomes worst when the ball deviates from the target landing and drops into the rough areas. This results in a decrease in the power for the next shot. In order to overcome this situation to a greater extent, you can use the “Viper Balls”. The Viper Balls increase the power in the rough terrains and help you to cover long distances to an extent.

3. Increase Power inside of the Bunker?

I know a lot of players will start panicking in case the ball reaches inside the bunker. This Golf Rival Guide and tips have a solution for this situation as well and it is the “Mummy Balls”. You can use this ball to increase the power inside the bunker.

Final words

There are two ways to finish off the game, first is the defensive approach. This means you try to close down the distance between the hole and the ball and then take another shot to finish the game. The other being the Attacking approach, which means, the moment you get the chance to hit the hole, do it in one shot. That being said, there are pros and cons to both these steps and it depends upon the players’ psyche as with which option he/she is comfortable.

I would love yo be able to talk to my fellow golfers…sometimes..a smiley face just dose t do it!!


I would be too mean to other golfers


Yeah Same here!! Plus I can be a cocky A-Hole !


Yea “hurry up” right before someone’s about to hit seems to make someone steam. Or the crying laughing is a good one when someone hits a crappy shot. I can’t stand when you see someone with 95 of each kind of ball you know there using that cheat code. I won’t even play with those idiots


I wonder why there is a golf tee on the screen


How do you get the “drone” view on a hole??
