The follow up to Links - The Challenge of Golf, Links 386 Pro features Harbour Town Golf Links course. Numerous improvements included photo-realistic SVGA graphics, improved physics, split screens, male/female golfers with different shirt colors, and enhanced sound effects.
A CD version was released later, it added hole flybys with commentary (for certain courses).
The game was compatible with certain golf simulators (motion tracking controllers, such as PC Golf or Pro Swing) after installing software bundled with them.
Links 386 Pro could run in both 640x400 and 640x480 SVGA modes, depending on the hardware's capabilities. In 640x480, a tile pattern was used at the top and bottom of the screen to fill in the extra 80 pixels. SVGA drivers for Vesa SVGA and a plethora of vendor specific SVGA implementations were included, though Vesa cards tended to be the easiest to get working.
