This is the first of the storied Golden Tee Golf game series. It starts with humble roots. This version is 2d. Only looking from behind the golfer. It still features 3 courses with varying tee shots. Games are played through 18 holes if you put in the quarters (1 for 3 holes of golf). Graphics were lackluster (very blocky).
The game follows the normal rules for golf play. All scoring is done for stroke play (hazards, water penalties etc.) You are provided with a standard set of clubs. 2-9 irons, 3 and 5 woods and a driver. Sand and pitch wedge and a putter.
Prior to the swing you can turn left or right. By rolling the roller ball (controller) back in a certain direction (for backswing) then foward in a certain direction, you can accomplish different shots including slices, hooks, fades and knock down shots.
