Pro Golf II

Not a big golf fan, me. Haven't really got the Headroom angle on clubbing a little white ball. Still, Pro Golf is reasonable enough.

Up to four players can take part, and you have two course to choose from. Either Royal St George's or Lytham & St Annes. Along with the human players who may take part, there are a host of computer-generated opponents (max - 17). and there are the usual league table breakdowns of what's going on.

The graphics in these things are never much to talk about, and PG2 is no different. Everything is pretty schematic and representative, with very little time having been spent on artistic endeavour.

There are, however, all the little twiddly bits that you'd expect of a golf game - wind direction, ground conditions, club selection etc.

If you're the slightest bit interested in golf, this may be worth a look, though hardened addicts would be better off with the Leaderboard series.

Overall Summary

Budget golf-sim. 1-4 players. Reasonable effort at making the greatest/dullest game in the world economically Spectrumised.
