Description

One to four players can take turns playing this golf game. Player control the golfer around the field with the directional stick and hit the ball using the action button. The longer the action button is held, the higher the backswing and the farther the ball goes. If the club comes full circle, the backswing will be released automatically and the ball will travel a random distance. The backswing of the club will always be clockwise, and the downswing will always be counter-clockwise. The ball's direction will depend on the golfer's relative position. There's no penalty for swinging the club away from the ball.

The trees in the field will stop the course of the ball, making the golfer angry. If the ball reaches the "rough" (the black area outside the field), the golfer cannot walk on it and will need to hit the ball back into the field. Once the ball is on the green, the camera will zoom in. Golfers will alternate turns only when the precedent golfer goes through the entire hole. The winner is the golfer with the lowest score for the nine holes.
