Golf Resort Tycoon is a real time business management sim. You design and maintain a golf resort, keeping tabs on a host of facilities such as restaurants, tennis and racquetball courts, guest accommodations, maintenance facilities, and of course the golf course. When you finish building your course you can walk around it in a first person 3D mode, although you can’t actually tee off. As in the Microprose game Roller Coaster Tycoon, you can select any golfer and see what he or she is doing and how he or she feels about the facilities. You can also grab them and drop them down anywhere in your resort.

Golf Resort Tycoon can be played free form (build up your resort without worrying about set objectives) or you can choose from twelve scenarios. Difficulty is determined by how much cash you have on hand when you start the game.
