Back of Case - Windows (AUS):
    Compete On Courses You Create

    Finally, a golf course designed just for you. That's because it's designed by you - using your SimGolf Course Architect. TM Play your own masterpieces - or the two built-in gems by expert designer Robert Trent Jones, Jr. And sample another stroke of genius... it's the MouseSwing, TM a revolutionary interface that feels more like the real thing - and more like your real swing. And once you've mastered the perfect swing, you can show it off on the world's biggest public course, the internet.



    • Modify SimGolf's courses or create dozens of new ones - as tame or tough as you like - with the powerful Course Architect.


    • The breakthrough MouseSwing interface lets you use the mouse to hit the ball for greater control of your swing. (The traditional "power bar" option is also available.)


    • Play a virtual foursome with real opponents in real time over the Internet or your LAN.


    • Scout out each course before you tee off with the 3-D course walk-through. And see your shots from six views - top, fly-by, landing, pin, profile, and instant replay.
