Let's Golf 2 is the only Xbox for Windows Phone enabled golf game and it is quite a good one at that. The game has a total of six completely unique courses, each with the full 18 holes. It features a robust Career Mode consisting of 42 events (seven on each course), ranging from varied versions of stroke play, match play, shootouts, closest to the pin, and timed stroke play. As you progress, your character levels up, their skills get better, and cosmetic items can be unlocked. The graphics are very well done by smartphone standards and the controls are easy to learn and use. For a more in-depth review of the game from WPCentral, click HERE
. Currently the game is listed at $4.99 in the Windows Phone Store.
Step 1: Complete the tutorial
Learn the controls of the game first and earn this simple achievement at the same time.
Step 2: Play Career Mode
A majority of the game's achievements will be earned along your path through Career Mode to get a single character to Level 25.
Step 3: Play Challenge Mode
Earn the two achievements in this mode quickly and easily.
Step 4: Mop-up
Finish up any achievements you may have left. There will likely be very few or none remaining.
Let's Golf 2's cartoony style and simple gameplay mechanics make it fun to play. The most time consuming achievement will be reaching Level 25 with a single character. It is a shame that leveling up occurs so slowly that you basically can't switch characters at all if you want to earn that achievement in a timely fashion. Add in the unobtainable achievement and this game makes for a questionable purchase for avid achievement hunters, and a definitive pass for completionists.
NOTE: Achievements you earn while playing a hole may not unlock until the end of the hole in the player ranking screen.
CAREER MODE ACHIEVEMENTS (7 for 95
The following 7 achievements can only be obtained in Career Mode.
Junior Golfer - 10

Get your first medal in Career mode.
See "New Champion."
New Champion - 15
Get your first gold medal in Career mode.
You earn medals for finishing in the top three of an event, getting the gold for finishing first, of course. There are also three secret gold medals to collect on each course which also count if you are having trouble actually earning first place in an event. The easiest events in the game are those in England.
Family Group - 20
Unlock all characters.
There are eight total characters in the game which need to be unlocked. The first two (Vincent & Jade) are unlocked at the start of Career Mode. The third (Chris) will be unlocked after getting your first gold medal in Career Mode. The last five characters are unlocked by beating them in a Match Play event. There is one character for the Match Play event in each course of the game (except England).
Intrepid Explorer - 10
Unlock a new course.
See "World Tour."
World Tour - 20

Courses are unlocked by collecting gold medals in Career Mode. The first course you can unlock is Germany, for which you need to earn two gold medals. The last course, Greenland, unlocks when your get your 10th gold medal. If you are having trouble earning gold medals by finishing first in events, remember that the hidden gold medals also count. See HERE
for a guide on finding all the hidden gold medals, compliments of packattack on GameFAQs.
Wise One - 10
Gain 100% experience with one character.
This is the most time consuming achievement in the game. It requires that you reach Level 25 with one of the characters. You should pick one of two starting characters at the beginning of Career Mode and ONLY use them so you are constantly working towards this achievement. The only way to earn XP to level up is by playing and completing Career Mode events. You can replay events you have already gotten a gold medal in to earn slightly more XP. The hidden gold medals are not required for this achievement. This will likely require a little bit of grinding, even after getting gold on all events. The scores you earn on each hole do no appear to influence XP in any way.
