It is said that roaming the
moors, fighting off mosquitoes and the
relentless sun are all part of the
most soothing sport in the world,
golf. Since DDT has been banned in
the U.S. (except, of course, by the
World Wrestling Foundation), we can't
do much about the mosquitoes. And
since even the scientists are giving
up on ozone holes and creeping kudzu
it appears that the only thing for
weekend duffers to do is practice at
home on your C-64. Thanks to Jim
Hilty's GOLFER ARCADE, your putting
game is taken care of.
The idea is to make it through
nine holes in as few putts as
possible. Since this is a friendly
game you can move your ball at your
convenience by using the function
keys. F3 moves left and F5 moves
right. F1 selects the putting speed
and F7 putts the ball.
But wait! A demented
greenskeeper has used moving holes
instead of the usual stationary ones.
To make matters worse the zoo next
door has such liberal lock-up
policies that elephants, alligators
and other golfophobic vermin seem
to roam the greens at will. You'll
have to allow for them getting in
your way and stealing your ball.
Some holes are worth more than
others so if you want to beat your
opponents into the ground (and who
doesn't?) you'll need to take your
time and make your shots count.
Remember, when in doubt, take a
Mulligan. That's what the Golden
Bear would do.
