It isn't really groundbreaking gameplay - the system is similar to the PC version EXCEPT:
1. There is a Beginner Mode to ease you along.
2. You get more Pang/Rewards so you don't need to grind so much.
3. You level up faster (to unlock rewards)
It's more of a "Got bored, Pick up, Get addicted for about 2-3 weeks, Put down and play intermittently" title.
It IS "golf" after all. You might want to leave a bit of your brain behind during the story mode, though. : >
