Great, golf games is one of my niches! I'm a meditative player and Death Incarnate just said it right: this is golf - so relax and take it easy! Fortunately there sometimes are people who care enough for these games to review them, because I will probably never get around to doing one.

The graphics of Links 368 Pro is perfect. That's a prime example for doing it non-pixel.

Is Banff Springs from Links 368 CD? At MobyGames, I read that the Kixx release contains The Belfry instead of Banff Springs. Perhaps Ermuli has it (or the other one).

There were a lot of other courses included with Death's files. Unfortunately some of the zip-files were broken. I've already asked him to check and reupload those if possible. Hopefully there will be some more courses available soon.

Are they the original floppies?! Could you make floppy images of them? And what kind of CD?

I'm a big fan of Links games, 2003 editon is my favorite.
This one is a nice oldie.
