Player A always starts the first match. After this, the winner of the previous hole will be the first to tee off. If both players needed the same number of shots, the player who won the last hole will begin the next.
All matches end after 18 holes have been played.
Select 1 or 2 player option after loading. If you select 1 player then the course will be displayed.
If playing a 2 player game, you will be asked to enter the Handicap for each player. If there is a difference, the computer will award strokes to the poorer player who will be given a shot on designated holes.
The number of strokes given is three quarters of the difference in Handicaps. You will be advised at which holes the weaker player will get a shot. This will not be shown again during the course of the game.
The direction of a shot is decided by the input number. For North, type 12, for 6 type South, as per the faces of a clock. You may go to two decimal places, e.g. 4.25 - quarter of the way between 4 and 5. Follow the prompts at the bottom of the screen to enter a number.
The strength of a shot can propel the ball a maximum of 250 yards; the inputed number is equal to the distance the ball will fly.

The Bottom Line shows:
The direction the wind is blowing to, as on the face of a clock.
3 is Right, 9 is Left. The wind will gust, so it may or may not affect your shot. The wind has no effect on the green.
All featured obstacles behave exactly as they would in reality. For example, you lose your ball in the Lake and take a penalty, though on very rare occasions you may find it again.
