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.

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.

The 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.

Power Play
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.
