...is that it doesn’t have a golf pencil included. Would have been a perfect addition.

Call me irrational, but the only reason we didn't include a pencil was to avoid kids accidentally poking their eyes with it. If the game had an "ages 14+" rating we definitely would have included it.

I dunno, someone playing is going to need a writing implement anyhow. Feels like if they're prone to eye-poking, it's just going to happen. I guess not having one skirts liability though.

Though a game set in a time of human colonization of Mars, then the scorepad should be something apptly 'not too distant future'-y. Mayhaps an phone app, or an Alexa skill...

An awesome companion app for this would be a golf strokes style scoring app (yes I know, you could just use a golf score app), but also a digital AR distance measuring mode (just rings you can expand from the hole on the horizontal plan to measure furthest from the whole.
To top it off a simple video recorder for shots, so you can save the shot of the game, do slow motion replays and so forth...

...although this might be asking a bit much

Just to be clear- we loved playing the game and had a lot of fun..in truth we’re more amused that a golf game doesn’t have a golf pencil than disappointed. This was intended to be a tongue-in-cheek post.

Thanks for the fun game!
