    Finally. A Golf Game
    With No Handicap.



    Classic swing characteristics. The ideal swing for every club in the bag. Woods are hit with a full turn and the short irons with a smooth, three quarter backswing. From drives to chips to putts, every shot is textbook Nicklaus.

    Created by Jack Nicklaus. Voted Golfer of the Century. The preeminent course architect of our time. Signature Edition is Nicklaus' third golf game and his crowning achievement on the computer. "It's the newest, most comprehensive game on the market."

    The only 256 Color VGA Course Designer on the market. Another first from Nicklaus. The powerful 256 Color VGA Course Designer is the "magic wand of golf." Create an unlimited number of golf courses in breathtaking color.

    Refine each hole with "Plot & Play." Are the bunkers in unfair positions? Don't wait until your course design is completed to find out - play the hole instantly, while design is in progress, and feel out its playability.

    True-to-life ball flight. Like real golf, club length and loft will determine trajectory and distance. A 2 iron will hit long and roll hot, a PW will fly high and land soft. And don't ignore Mother Nature. Wind and terrain can alter ball flight and bounce.

    Jack Nicklaus' 256 color masterpiece. Feature rich, with five digitized golfer animations (including the Golden Bear himself); authentic tour statistics and up to five rounds of tournament play. Tee off with friends - or computerized opponents, whose abilities can be altered with the Player Editor.

    The fastest screen redraws. Slow play is the bane of golf. Signature Edition solves that problem with fastest screen drawing speeds of any comparable golf game.

    Includes two Nicklaus designed courses. Create an unlimited number of layouts with the 256 Color VGA Course Designer or tee off on two, ready-to-play Nicklaus signature courses - Sherwood Country Club and English Turn.

    Compatible with Jack Nicklaus Unlimited Golf. Existing courses created with Unlimited can be imported to the Signature Edition.

    Hear golf's greatest hits. Digitized sound effects add to the total wealth of realism. The unmistakable sound of a forged blade cutting the air. The perfect "click" of a club catching the sweet spot. It just doesn't get any better than this.

    The all-new Jack Nicklaus Signature Edition. Unprecedented realism combined with unmatched playability. Or in the language of the links, "dead solid perfect." But what else would you expect from Jack Nicklaus and Accolade?
