The quite mundane title screen
The same can be said about the main menu
Mr. Kite won that much in 22 years of career. Can you do better?
In here you set your game preferences. However, don't expect options for outrageous clothes.
Instead of going head to head with the Pros, nothing like a practice run on a common par 4 hole
It seems to be going well...
... and the reverse angle replay confirms a good drive, which lands on the fairway.
The second stroke failed to hit the green, but it's still in a good position. Chipping the ball here can approach the ball enough for a par shot, or even hit a birdie.
It goes perfectly in direction of the hole...
... and goes down for a birdie. Perfecting chipping is a must for par 5 holes in tournaments.

The title screen
This is built up in sections starting with the background picture. When all the writing is in place a ball lands on the green, butterflies waft across the scene etc
The main menu
An overview of the River Highlands course
Before playing a hole the player gets a walkthrough with a narrator advising on the club to use and the line to take
On the green about to tee off
The information bar at the bottom of the screen is removed when the player begins their swing
The game has begun. The first part of the shot is viewed from the player's point of view, later the view shifts to watch the ball land
Playing onto the green
In contrast to later games there is no sound while on the course, no birds sing, no planes roar overhead, no crowd murmuring etc
Playing out of a bunker
Putting for par. The grid appears automatically. This is the first tie the commentator speaks saying "This long put to go one under par"
Here a player celebrates making a long put
Sloping greens are taken for granted these days so having visible height differences within the game must have been really something
