Description from the packaging.

Tee off on the most challenging 18 holes of major championship golf with the legend who hand-picked each one- Jack Nicklaus.

This is unquestionably the most realistic and visually stunning computer golf game ever made. No other game can match its graphics or its features.

  • Play 18 holes from courses where the four major championships have been contested: Augusta, Baltusrol, Muirfield, Merion, Oakmont, Pebble Beach, Riviera, Royal Lytham and St. Andrews.
  • Play 2 additional courses designed by Jack Nicklaus: Castle Pines, Colorado and Desert Mountain, Arizona.
  • Play against a computerized Jack Nicklaus who possesses skills patterned directly after his own game.
  • Play with one to four people or a variety of computerized men and women golfers.
  • Choose skins scoring or stroke play.
  • Choose beginner or expert levels on the pro, men's or ladies' tees.
  • Contend with the effects of wind direction and intensity.
  • Contend with rolling hills that give you uphill or downhill lies.
  • Contend with random pin placement. No hole ever plays the same way twice.

Play the breathtaking 8th at Pebble Beach and discover why the second shot of this Par 4 Is Jack's "favorite shot in all of golf." Go head-to-head with the Golden Bear on "the most dangerous short hole in golf"- the 12th at Augusta National.

It's you against the greatest golfer of all time. Playing the greatest 18 holes in the world.

One reason why Nicklaus wins the Majors? He devours every hole. You can too with these aerial close-ups. Every hush detail: multiple tees, trees, fairways, rough, greens, hazards. Baltusrol for breakfast, Oakmont for lunch.

Tee to green, the best scenery in computer golf. But Nicklaus doesn't play scenery, he battles the elements- wind, water, blind holes, hills, doglegs left and right. Grab your sticks. There's a shoot-out at Merion.

Admire Nicklaus' legendary concentration? You're going to need it. The greens at Augusta are fast and rolling. You have to read the break perfectly and strike with a master's touch. Jack didn't want it any other way.
