Well, I know of two minigolf games, but that's it:

Neverputt: https://libregamewiki.org/Neverputt (Neverputt almost always comes together with Neverball)
Kolf: https://libregamewiki.org/KDE_Games (part of KDE)

But as for golf games, hmm. I don't know anything. :(

Didn't find any golf games on github. Very noisy search. People seem to like code golf where you write the smallest code possible to accomplish a task.

Search on the main free software hosting sites is just straight up terrible. Its hard to find actual games with actual development teams that need actual help. I don't think we need something silly like open hatch, but we really really need better systems for users and developers to find software.

"Awesome" lists can be helpful, but I am starting to think that curated git repository mirrors might be a better solution. Gitea makes it extremly easy to mirror external git repos, and you can have organisations for multiple repos.

See for example: https://git.freegamedev.net/Games-Shelter
