Golf is a tough, but very long-lasting challenge. It looks fine, sounds good - in fact my only moan is that the head-to-head isn't more interesting (you see the other player's ball on your screen. Wow).

Golf è un classico della Nintendo, uno di quei titoli che se hai amato all'epoca, ami anche oggi. Una simulazione, per quanto semplificata, che rende giustizia allo Sport su prati verde più bello del mondo (ok ho esagerato!). La mia copia è sempre inserita nel mio GBA SP e riposta nel "mio ufficio" di derivazione Fonziana..per la teoria (e pratica) che, una pausa "Stiffler" non sarebbe la stessa cosa senza il Golf del Game Boy!

Faire une simulation de golf sur Game Boy ? L'écran est petit et pas en couleur, la partie s'annonçait difficile ! Le résultat est carrément incroyable, le Golf de la Game Boy peut, sans complexe, se mesurer aux meilleurs du genre sur PC Engine ou sur Megadrive !

If you're just after a good time, Golf will probably be enough, but if you want a no holes barred simulation you'll have to look to the Commodore or Spectrum computers. Wind variance and weather problems just aren't in this Nintendo game.

Golf is nothing fancy but it does not need to be. For the Game Boy it is a good game that is easy to play when traveling. If you enjoy playing golf videogames then you should have some fun with this one.

Ce golf est agréable à jouer ; on pourra toutefois regretter que la distance restant à parcourir ne soit pas indiquée après chaque tir, ce qui rend assez difficile le choix du club et le dosage de la force pour le coup suivant.

Der erfahrene Golfer wird vielleicht die eine oder andere Option vermissen, wer aber nach einem leicht zu bedienenden ‚Golfplatz in der Tasche‘ sucht, der ist mit diesem Klassiker durchaus gut beraten zumal er trotz seines Alters auch noch so manchen anderen Konkurrenten locker in die Tasche steckt. Wer das Game noch auftreiben kann, sollte zugreifen: Günstiger als der örtliche Golfplatz ist es allemal.

Die Sportspiel-Jünger unter den Game Boy-Besitzern dürfen sich auf Nintendos "Golf" freuen. Das Modul hält locker mit den meisten Computer-Golfs mit; läßt einige sogar ziemlich alt aussehen. Zwei Kurse à 18 Löcher stehen parat, die Mario (Held zahlloser Nintendo-Programme) als Euer Vertreter im Spiel absolviert.
Après une première simulation sportive orientée arcade, Nintendo remet le couvert avec Golf qui demeure aussi divertissant et accessible que Tennis. Grâce à de nombreux clubs dotés de propriétés distinctes que le joueur pourra tâter au sein d'un parcours de 18 trous offrant des environnements assez variés, le soft convaincra sans mal les amateurs du genre.
NESThe Video Game Critic
It would be easy to be critical of this relic of a golf game. You can only aim in 45 degree increments. All trees are out of bounds. The screen doesn't indicate the range of your club, or even the ball's proximity to the hole. But despite having to perform the distance calculations in your head, Golf is actually pretty fun! The swing meter is not unlike those found in modern golf games, and you can at least partially compensate for the coarse aiming controls by applying a draw or fade to your shot. Putting is tricky however, because the greens tend to be very fast. The overhead view of the hole is terrific, and the course is challenging and interesting in design. The game moves along at a brisk pace, allowing you to play 18 holes in just a few minutes. Not bad, all things considered.
Il s'agit donc d'un jeu relativement classique et plutôt bien réalisé. Un regret malgré tout : l'absence d'un éditeur de parcours qui aurait permis d'enrichir encore la qualité de cette cartouche.
There really isn't much more to the game than that. Though it isn't bad by any means, it’s certainly primitive and limited. If you give it a try, you’ll definitely understand why Nintendo offered NES Open Tournament Golf as a reward to early Nintendo 3DS adopters, rather than going with Golf. Today, the latter title is more a historical curiosity than anything, made only slightly more interesting by the fact that nine of its holes were later reproduced as part of the Wii Sports package. Unless that fact interests you, there’s little reason to own the cartridge today unless you’re either a true NES collector or a diehard Mario fan.

Golf is a classic Game Boy title best left in the depths of your memories, as it now feels horribly dated and bereft of gameplay options.

Sportspiel-Freaks unter den Nintendo-Besitzern können aufatmen. Die Golf-Simulation ist nicht berauschend, dennoch ganz gut geglückt. Mit „Leader Board“ (meiner Meinung nach die beste Computer-Golf- Simulation) kann es zwar nicht mithalten, doch dürften die wenigsten Nintendo-Fans neben dem Videospiel einen Computer zu Hause haben. Die Verknüpfung von Action- und Strategie-Elementen ist gut durchdacht. Man kann den Ball mit viel Präzision an jeden gewünschten Ort schlagen. Auch kurvenreiche Flugbahnen sind keine Kunst. Die Grafik ist zweckmäßig. der Sound nicht so gut.
