One of the major differences is in the sport. Turbo Golf Racing is based on golf, while Rocket League tackles the game of soccer. Additionally, there is the added mechanic of trying to sink your ball into the goal before other players in Turbo Golf Racing.

While Rocket League features solo play, it is—at its core—a team-based game. Turbo Golf Racing instead seems to take on an eight-player free-for-all mode in which all players are competing against one another.

Another major difference is the inclusion of Power Cores in Turbo Golf Racing. These are essentially item pickups, similar to Mario Kart, that you can find. These give you a Super Core power, such as hitting the ball further, a ground stomp, ball gravitation, and more.
