CBM64 Golf
Copyright/Publisher: Essential Consultans LTD, Release Year: 1984, Genre: Golf, Number Of Players: 1 to 4

The course consists of 18 holes, each one randomly generated to give you a different game each time you play. On viewing the score card an option is given to end the game should you wish to play less than the full 18 holes.

Two types of course are available:
1) PAR 3 COURSE: Club selection is not available in this game. You will be allocated a 9 iron, sand wedge or putter depending on where your ball happens to be. All holes have a PAR value of 3.

2) NORMAL COURSE: Par values are 3, 4 or 5 and clubs can be selected from a full set of 14.

PAR: This is the normal score for a hole played correctly.

S: This is the stroke index. The holes are numbered on their relative degree of difficulty. The most difficult hole is numbered 1.

CLUB TYPES: On the next screen is given the sort of distances you might expect with each club, assuming you don't hit a tree or land in a pond etc.

N.B. The high numbered irons and the wedges will send the ball higher and are therefore better for hitting over trees!

Strength can be any number from 10 (maximum) down to 1.

If you make a mistake simply press the funcion key f1 and start again.
