Description Edit | History

Golf is a sports-simulation video game released in 1985 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. It was originally released in Japan in 1984 for the Nintendo Family Computer. The golfer is a mustached man who resembles Mario.

The player one character wears a white shirt and shoes with blue pants and uses a white ball, while the player two character wears a red shirt and shoes with black pants and uses a red ball.

Unnamed in the original game, in the Japanese Nintendo Wii release Captain Rainbow the golfer is referred to as ossan, a flippant term meaning a grown man.

Gameplay

The user must first decide whether to play single stroke play or the two player selections of doubles stroke play or match play. The user is then placed at the tee of the first hole of eighteen.

It was the first golf game to feature a power/accuracy bar for swinging the club. The power bar method has been used in most golf games since.

Ports

  • Ported to the Family Computer Disk System in 1986 (Japan only).
  • Available for the Classic NES e-Reader series on Game Boy Advance.
  • Available as a fully playable collectible in Animal Crossing.
  • Hudson Soft released a port of the game for the Japan-only NEC PC-8801 in 1985.
  • In the Game Boy version, unlike the NES version, there are some background music and two countries to choose from: Japan and U.S.A.. Also, the style of the player characters are chibi. All courses are different compared to the ones in the NES version.
  • The nine holes of Wii Sports Golf are 3-dimensional versions of holes in NES Golf.
