The din of the crowd quiets to a hush as you approach the tee. You're only two strokes off the leader's pace with three holes left to play. If you're going to gain any ground, it's got to be now. The leader has already put his shot in the sand bunker to the right of the green. You gauge the wind velocity, then drive your shot towards the flag. The ball hits the edge of the green and bounces within three feet of the hole. A proper read of the green, and you'll birdie this hole!

Picture Perfect Play

Arnold Palmer Golf for the Genesis is one of the most realistic and graphically stunning golf games you'll ever play. It looks and sounds as good as any arcade golf title.

Tee off by yourself or play 18 holes with a friend. Besides the One-Player and Two-Player modes, there's also a practice mode, match play (head to head), and a full blown international tournament.

Tournament play lasts 12 rounds, with each round being 18 holes of golf. Most rounds are standard "stroke" play-the lowest point total for 18 holes wins the round.

But the seventh and eighth rounds are "match" games. You'll play for each hole individually; the player winning the most holes wins the round. Things get really exciting when a match game ends in a tie, and players move into a "sudden death" play-off.

Learn Power Golf

During the tournament, players earn higher skill levels, more knowledgeable caddies, and more power. Power increases the flying distance of your ball, making your drives much better. Once you've earned the higher skill levels, you can also deliberately hook and slice the ball with greater accuracy. Caddies in the know can tell you distance to the hole and recommend how you should play the ball.

You get a password at the end of each round of the tournament.

ProTip: Passwords are 22 characters long and sometimes difficult to read (2's look like z's). Copy them carefully or you'll lose an entire round of play!

Pick Your Favorite Course

Arnold Palmer Golf nets you starting times on three different courses. The Japan course is 6,690 yards-a short course surrounded by a water hazard and woods. The United States course is 6,919 yards, wide, and often very windy. Great Britain's course is filled with thick bushes and plenty of sand traps. It's the longest course at 6,950 yards. All three courses are par 72.

Arnold Palmer Golf brings a classic video game sport to life. Golf enthusiasts and newcomers alike will thrill to the excitement of a clapping and cheering crowd when you sink your putt. This game scores a hole in one!

The first golf game Sega produced for its Genesis system, Arnold Palmer Tournament Golf features tournament play, match play and a practice mode. Play through 12 rounds in an attempt to defeat 15 golfers to become the world champion.

Arnold Palmer Tournament Golf is also know as Super Masters Golf - Japanese Title.

Tee off by yourself or play 18 holes with a friend. Besides the One and Two Player modes there's also a practice mode, match play (head to head), and a full-blown international tournament, where you'll stroke it out against 15 competitors.

Tournament play lasts 12 rounds, 18 holes of golf each. Most rounds are standard "stroke" play but the seventh and eighth rounds are "match" games. Things really get serious when match game ends in a tie, and players move into a sudden death play-off.

There are three obstacle-riddled courses from which to choose (one each in Japan, the U.S, and Great Britain) and three different sets of clubs. You begin the game with black carbon clubs, but when you win a round you will receive a new set of clubs that perform better and hit much farther. Also, your ability and level of caddy advice increases each time you win a round or score at least in the top eight positions.

Swinging the club requires you to use a power gauge to judge the strength and height of your shot. You can adjust your stance and power and direction of the wind. A shot target mark helps you guide the direction of the ball. When the ball reaches the putting green, a close-up of the screen will appear. Here you can view the lie of the putt, change the position of the putter and utilize the power gauge and putt mark to help you with your shot.

A password feature will enable you to save your tournament progress.
