The City Golf app, which launches for iPhone 4 and above, is an exciting new development in gaming, mixing motion-activated
mobile play and augmented reality.
The app allows users to swing their mobile device like a golf club to play through three courses with nine par-three-style holes. The pin can be set against any real-world backdrop using the iPhone's camera.
Players can challenge their friends in a round of up to four players and share the results on Facebook.
To complete the game, players need to unlock each green and score a hole-in-one on every hole to collect all 81 stars – an ambitious target.
The City Golf app has been created to celebrate Mercedes-Benz' sponsorship of The Open Championship and can be downloaded from the App Store by searching 'City Golf'.
