Ação Games (Jul, 1991)
O realismo é tão grande que você vai temer que uma bola mal atirada quebre o vidro de sua televisão.
Génération 4 (Apr, 1991)
Ce jeu, qui existe déjà sur PC et Amiga, s'impose comme LA meilleure simulation de golf sur Megadrive. Le son avec les bruitages du coup et de la balle, les cris et les applaudissements du public lorsque vous réussissez un beau coup, le graphisme avec les effets visuels et la réalisation sont à la hauteur de cette console, et il est dommage que nous n'ayons pas plus souvent de jeux d'aussi bonne qualité.
PGA Tour Golf is starting to have the same effect as John Madden Football did in the office at the moment (people tend to "disappear" for a quick round) and weighs in as one of the best sports games available on the Megadrive - take a look!
Mean Machines (Apr, 1991)
PGA Tour Golf is probably the best game of its type available. The graphics and sounds are simply superb on all counts - the animation on your golfer is incredibly lifelike. The sound too is great, with plenty of sampled effects. Rob Hubbard provides the musical accompaniment - so the quality of the music is guaranteed! With it's multitude of options there's plenty to keep you going, and though there's only four courses they're all quite challenging to complete. Take some other players with you on to the courses and PGA Golf adds a great competitive spirit to the proceedings. PGA Golf may not look visually exciting, but for any golfing fan (or anyone else who fancies something different) this is the one to get!
Raze (May, 1991)
PGA Tour Golf is a very accomplished piece of programming on the Amiga, and even more so on the Mega Drive, putting Arnold Palmer in the rough. The slick presentation on both versions gives the game a very professional look and a lot of appeal. To casual players or more serious golf devotees it will provide an ideal opportunity for longterm entertainment.

Der Golfkonkurrent auf dem Mega Drive, Segas "Arnold Palmer Tournament Golf" wird von PGA im direkten Vergleich geschlagen.
Power Play (May, 1991)
Die überaus unterhaltsame Sportsimulation "PGA Tour Golf" hat den Sprung vom PC auf das Mega Drive ganz gut überstanden. Ihr tretet hier gegen eine ganze Horde computergesteuerter Computerspieler beim Kampf ums liebe Preisgeld an. Spielstände und Statistiken können auch bei der Modulversion dank eingebauter Batterie gespeichert werden. Beim Bildaufbau der 3-D-Grafik gibt es keine störenden Wartepausen. Lediglich während des Abschlags wird das Programm etwas langsamer. Die Umsetzung ist spielerisch gelungen, aber technisch ein wenig lieblos. Die wenig spektakuläre Grafik hätte man auf dem Mega Drive wesentlich farbenfroher gestalten können.
The Video Game Critic (Apr 14, 2002)
Golf translates surprisingly well into video game form. In PGA Tour, one to four players can compete on three actual courses and one fantasy course. The controls are simple to learn but tough to master, and the game moves along at a steady clip, eliminating the boring lulls you might expect from a golf game. The courses look nice, but because of their flatness, never seem to vary much. It's a pretty quiet game except for bird chirps and crowd reactions to putts. An extremely useful battery backup system saves your game and stats. The worst part of the game is the awkward, non-standard interface that forces you to navigate various drop menus. It's impossible to remember what button is used to select and what is used to cancel. But once your game is finally set up, you don't need to deal with it. PGA Tour Golf was the first in a series of fine golf games for the Genesis by Electronic Arts.
Leider ist diese Fassung im grafischen Bereich etwas lieblos geworden. denn sie steht sogar der Amiga-Grafik etwas nach. Zwar ist der Bildschirmaufbau schneller, doch die Bahnen sind gerastert und einfach häßlicher. Am exzellenten Spielablauf ändert sich selbstverständlich nichts, die PGA-Mega-Drive weiß sogar besser zu gefallen, da lästige Ladezeiten wegfallen. Außerdem sind die Soundeffekte atmosphärischer (auf Amiga hört man alle erst mit mehr als einem Mbyte).
PGA Golf succeeds at combining the usual golfing game with great Genesis 16-Bit graphics.
The computer plays a good game, but this is one of those the really shines when you play with one, two or three other people. If the graphics, which would seem to be no more than 32 colors, were on a level with Arnold Palmer Tournament Golf (or even the celebrated Links 256-color golf game from Access), it's be a truly remarkable achievement. As it is, PGA Tour Golf is still a thoroughly entertaining, challenging and complex golf simulation.

Originally, I never really played any golf games for the Genesis, but now as time progresses I have started to pick up a few here and there at my local gaming store when I can't find anything else I want to pick up particularly badly. At first, I started to think that there wasn't a Genesis golf game that was worth more than a quarter, but I actually have had some decent fun with it. You know, like any early Genesis game it has its flaws, but I still like it enough not to notice too much. It's like one of those old classic golf shows on the golf channel put on the Genesis, chip this one into your Genesis and spend a few rounds lowering your handicap.
