Golf is one of the most expensive sports, which combines both the thrill of scoring a point and relaxing in a pleasant outdoor environment. And as not all have access to golf equipment or even a proper golf course, for that matter, VR technology has introduced an accessible way for all to enjoy playing golf from the comfort of any home.

There are quite a few VR golf games one could choose from when interested in experiencing the sport immersively, however if you want to play it safe, you can stick to VR Today Magazine’s recommendations for the best VR golf titles.
