    Game Overview

    Meet your caddy at the tee.

    This new version of the 1990 Game Boy classic brings you 32 holes of realistic golf action with hazards that change every time you play.

    Each hole has tricky hazards, so strategy is a must. Read the wind direction, check the distance, select a club, adjust your swing and keep your eye on the ball. Then, drive it home. A scorecard will keep track of your points for each hole.

    From twisting fairways and hungry sandtraps to big water hazards and deceptive greens, Golf is packed with challenges.

    This game is only playable in 2D.

The Official Nintendo Player's Guide (1987):

    SINK THAT WINNING PUTT



    You need to make this 25-foot putt to win the tournament and take home the prize or you're a has-been. The green looks fast and it should break to the left. You line up your shot, hold your breath, and putt gently towards the hole. It sinks, and the victory is yours.

    GAME PLAY: This game lets you pick your club, control your swing--even select the angle of impact. You push the button three times to hit with the irons and woods. Your timing gives you control of the distance and direction of your shot. Don't let that slice get the better of you. You also have to account for wind speed and direction. So plan your shot carefully. When you're on the green, you get a close-up view that shows the slope and steepness of the putting surface. This 18-hole championship course is a beauty to play, but keep that ball out of the lakes and the bunkers or you'll never make par.

Back of Box:
    From tee to green, you've never played golf like this!

    Nintendo GOLF lets you choose your clubs, change your stance, control your swings - even select the angle of impact! You'll view the hole from both close up and far away, judge the changing conditions of the green, and measure the wind velocity! But watch out. When the wind changes, so does the flight of your ball! With Nintendo's state of the art graphics and realistic game play you'll really believe you're on the fairways. So play Nintendo GOLF because there's not a video game on par with it anywhere!
