Thanks for your helpful response. I could be mistaken, but this is not my first golf game either, so I will clarify.
I believe I've had half, quarter, and 1/8th markings since I started and I would not have even continued if it was just an open area without common portion demarcations, that's only fair to provide with the game, not as a bonus or paid premium. I think zero golf games are done without a power gauge freely provided of some kind.
A curved swing graphic style, might be an exception, but a circle swing gauge is easier to see the mid point since it's' at the furthest side point on the arc, so the half point tends to be provided, but usually also quarter and 1/8 demarcations is common.
However you don't even get a half ways indication from a blank straight line, which is what I was dealing with for half a week. Playing without any power gauge markings really sucked.
I no longer play here regularly. Go figure.
Maybe I just have a dark cloud following me around here, but,,,
1)I can't figure out how to watch my saved replays after asking others how.
2)I've lost at least 3 balls I paid for without going out of bounds.
3)I can't change view as needed to see if clearing trees or other obstacles.
4)No way of trading experience points to purchase stuff so it seems kinda meaningless since all other meaningful stats are retained.
5)Glitches and odd things. Occasionally something odd happens, like; loose swing power meter, gain a floating gift box, can't change the view, but did for first part of the course, these anomalies are sorta bummers when you must reload which pissed off half the golfers so much, some of them run away.
Good luck with the glitches, these seem kinda large problems for such a long standing program. Thanks for your time and helpfulness.
