Back in the days I played this on good olc64. Sigh, sweet remembrance...

EDIT: Seems to me that wind always comes from the east no matter which direction is shown on the screen... did anyone experience the same?

This game is very good for those not into deep golf simulations. I was wondering if you can also upload the expansion courses for this game? I think I remember having some additional courses but had them deleted in a hard drive crash.

This is my favourite Golf sim game. I still play it from time to time. ST version at least.

One little info is that the wind only matters on higher difficulty levels...

This game was a breakthrough of golf games at the time, with good graphics, physics and scope.
I have even played this game against friends of mine (2vs2 tournament) and it was fun.
Great addition to the site.
5/5

This game takes me way back. I used to love playing this game against my brother and constantly beating him, despite the fact I was 5-years younger than him and knew nothing of computers.

It's good to revisit this game. Remember the good old days.

Great selection.

It doesn't. BTW - which difficulty level are you playing?

If you're not playing kids level, then the 'snap' comes into play. Without snap the ball will curve to the left, half of snap (the mark in the middle) and the ball will go straight, and full snap the ball will curve to the right.

Its a PC-compilation of the C64-game.
A good arcade golf-simulation with good EGA-graphics for its time and without complex control and features. Simply play and enjoy!
Sound comes out of the PC-Speaker but its very good digitized.

I used to play this game in the early 90's when I was a kid. It's still very nice game!
