Like in all golf games, the goal is to hit the ball into the hole in as few strokes as possible.
What makes this game different is that the game is played on a world map that represent the globe; and movement without turning on a globe isn't always along straight lines on the world map.
World Map Golf is a non-Euclidean golf game that is developed with the goal of helping the player to better understand how map projections distort the globe. In this version there is two different map projections: Plate Carrée and Sinusoidal projection.
