Open Golf

The Open Golf is based on the standard computerised golf games which you saw prevalent in the 1980s.

You play a series of 18 hole golf courses, and are presented with an overhead view of the golf course, along with details of wind speed and direction, and location of your ball.

You then have to control your direction, strength behind the shot and type of golf club used to strike your ball and try to beat the course record.

Unusually, this game includes a 3D image of the player and the course ahead and takes skill to master
