PGA Tour golf review

The One issue 22 (1990): "Where PGA Tour Golf scores over other golfing games and simulations is its gameplay. It’s perfectly balanced so that while there’s a good deal of accuracy and depth, it’s simple enough to pick up and learn within minutes. Placing and playing your shots is, if anything, even simpler than in Leaderboard (formerly the best example of a golf game as opposed to a simulation) and because all the information you need is presented clearly and without fuss, you can play as advanced a game as you like without having to mess about with complicated menus and icons. The designers have obviously thought long and hard about this, and have managed to strike an excellent balance between game and simulation. Icing on the cake comes in the form of near-flawless presentation, with the exquisite pre-hole flyby, tips from the professionals and the alternating camera angles. The facility to save out career statistics is invaluable, as it proves a genuine aidin rooting out your weakest areas. Unfortunately it’s an experience only to be fully appreciated by those with a speedy PC, as without this and the Roland or AdLib music, PGA Tour Golf isn’t quite the same - but even then it’s the best golf game there is. And we can’t say fairway-er than that!"

    Great game from my childhood. lemonamiga has the pdf of the game manual if you are trying to get past copy protection.

    How do you get past the copy protect screen where it asks for yardage of a particular hole?

    I remember this from my childhood. Overall it was a nice golf simulation, perhaps better than World Class Leaderboard.
