I would like to reset my save data for Desert Golfing on my iPhone and start over from level 1.

Is it possible to reset progress in Desert Golfing?

  • I think the easiest solution would be to just uninstall and reinstall the game. – Isuka Dec 13 '17 at 16:23

As mentioned in this thread it is possible to reset your progress by deleting and reinstalling the app.

Possible to reset the game by deleting the app?

Yes, it should be - I've done it before, although that was a long while ago so don't know if updates have changed anything.

I just did this myself and can verify.

The PC version is now available on Steam.

To reset your progress, find the installation folder and simply delete the save directory:

%STEAM_DIR%\SteamApps\common\Desert Golfing\save

(this directory will be recreated once the game is restarted)


And, if you are on a crazy hole-in-one streak and don't want to lose all your progress after a tough hole, here is a nice batch file that will backup the save directory each time before starting the game:

@echo off

REM -- Directory location of this file
set THIS_DIR=%~dp0
REM -- Remove ending slash, if there is one
REM -- Great example from Strawberry Perl's portable shell launcher:
if not "" == "%THIS_DIR%" if #%THIS_DIR:~-1%# == #\# set THIS_DIR=%THIS_DIR:~0,-1%

REM -- Get the current date/time stamp
for /f "tokens=2 delims==." %%I in ('%SystemRoot%\System32\wbem\wmic.exe OS GET LocalDateTime /VALUE') do @set "DT_STAMP=%%I" & call set "DT_STAMP=%%DT_STAMP:~0,4%%-%%DT_STAMP:~4,2%%-%%DT_STAMP:~6,2%%_%%DT_STAMP:~8,2%%.%%DT_STAMP:~10,2%%.%%DT_STAMP:~12,2%%"

REM -- Directory locations
set DIR_SAVE=%THIS_DIR%\save
set DIR_BACKUP=%THIS_DIR%\save-%DT_STAMP%

REM -- Backup the save directory
if exist "%DIR_SAVE%" xcopy /Y "%DIR_SAVE%" "%DIR_BACKUP%" /E /C /I /Q /H /R >nul

REM -- Start the game!
start "" /D"%THIS_DIR%" "Golf.exe"

Minimalist, for script writers:

@echo off
for /f "tokens=2 delims==." %%I in ('%SystemRoot%\System32\wbem\wmic.exe OS GET LocalDateTime /VALUE') do @set "DT_STAMP=%%I" & call set "DT_STAMP=%%DT_STAMP:~0,4%%-%%DT_STAMP:~4,2%%-%%DT_STAMP:~6,2%%_%%DT_STAMP:~8,2%%.%%DT_STAMP:~10,2%%.%%DT_STAMP:~12,2%%"
if exist "%~dp0save" xcopy /Y "%~dp0save" "%~dp0save-%DT_STAMP%" /E /C /I /Q /H /R >nul & start "" /D"%~dp0" "Golf.exe"
