Description from the packaging.

Golf simulation so realistic, you'll think you're there!

It's a beautiful spring day as you prepare to tee off. You gaze down the fairway and notice every detail of your surroundings... the location of each tree... the contour of each hill and slope... the lie of the ball. A day at your favorite course? Not quite, but it's the next best thing. Links The Challenge of Golf is a totally realistic golf simulator for your Amiga that is a quantum leap ahead of any computer golf game that you've ever seen!

Links features include:

  • Stunning HAM mode graphics.
  • Incredible 3-D contoured terrain.
  • Accurate physics of the flight and impact of the golf ball.
  • Actual digitized trees and buildings.
  • Three levels of game play: Pro, Amateur and Beginner.
  • Adjustable golfer's stance and swing plane.
  • All the sounds of true golf... from commentary and wildlife to the sound of your swing.

Here's what the reviewers are saying about Links...

PC Magazine- "...Links, the most authentic simulation of them all."
