Now is your chance to build and manage your very own golf course. Build the layout of each hold in the 18 hole course, then manage the greens and the resort, and even play the course against local Sims.

SimGolf brings together elements of SimCity and The Sims by allowing you to choose the important options that will either build your golf course into a major place to visit and play, or turn it into a one day wonder. Keeping each hold in order, managing memberships and costs are all part of the game.

The Sims themselves may also challenge you to play the course itself, giving you a bit of time off and fun.

Sid Meier consulted Will Wright on many aspects of SimGolf. As a result of their relationship, the game included some Maxis-like elements, including an interface almost directly lifted from The Sims. Maxis, in turn, released a Sid Meier skin for The Sims.
