Summary

Classic! The ancestor of all golf games.

The Good

Links offers largest selection of courses on which to play. Simple, reasonably intuitive interface with clean graphics. Doesn't require much hardware to play (doesn't even require a mouse... although it's definitely preferable to use one). One can begin scoring under (or just round) par without excessive practice so it avoids the frustration of real golf (as well as many other golf sims).

The Bad

Add-on courses were expensive at the time; I couldn't find many of the add-ons in local stores so had to order most directly from Access.

The Bottom Line

The best golf sim for your money. Easy to play without being simplistic; challenging for advanced players.
