There are golf fames and golf games and this is one of the best I've seen. You can select the number of holes (up to eighteen), up to four players and the handicap for each player.

Each hold demands choosing one of five clubs, a correct estimate of the direction of the shot, and strength of the swing on a scale of 0 to 10.

Better use could have been made of the graphics and the layout of current score and position could be more attractive. A nice touch, however, is the graphic of the player swinging at his ball, and the line drawn across the course to show the route you have taken so far.

As an indication of the complexity of the game (or perhaps my golfing ineptitude), on my first hole, a par 3, I took 27 strokes!
