Description

This is a golf simulation that allows you to play 3D golf courses using 3D golfers. There are numerous Jack Nicklaus courses on the disk, plus additional courses can be down loaded off of the Internet from various sites. There is also a golf course design and construction set included. This is the same construction set that the developers used, therefore it is very powerful. Additionlly, this feature has resulted in literally hundreds of courses being available.
