Description from the packaging.

Rivaled only by the game itself!
New! Super VGA! 386 Power!

This all new Links 386 Pro version of the popular, award-winning Links golf game offers many dramatic improvements that make playing the new Links 386 Pro more enjoyable- and gives you exciting new golfing possibilities!

The new Links 386 Pro, featuring Harbour Town Golf Links, is the first golf game specifically designed for the graphic capabilities and power of your personal 386/486 computer system. Enjoy Super VGA 256-color graphics for breathtaking views of the Links Championship Courses. Your friends won't believe your computer looks so good!

Championship golf at your fingertips.
A lot of listening went into the new Links 386 Pro and many of the new features and improvements were added in response to direct requests from Links users like you! An exciting new feature is the Unique Computer Opponent. Play a round of golf and save your game. The new Links 386 Pro recorded every shot you made. Send your game off to your buddy and he can play against you right on the screen, shot for shot, as if you were right there next to him! Also included are pre-recorded games from worthy opponents, statistics, a variety of game options and much, much more.

Over 345 combinations of viewing windows.
With the new Links 386 Pro you're not stuck with just one standard viewing window. With a few clicks of your mouse you can split the screen giving you a real-time reverse view of your shot to the green or add a scalable top-view that displays the flight of your ball. Scorecard, club distance chart, terrain profile and other panels give you the flexibility to display what you want to view while playing.

Use original Links courses.
The original Links courses- Torrey Pines, Bountiful, Firestone, Bay Hill, Pinehurst, Dorado Beach, Barton Creek and Troon North- can be converted to run with Links 386 Pro (Course Converter included). When converted, they will look even better than they did in Links.
