Tropical Golf

You can only play the 18 at Waialae CC, but a nicer looking video course you'll never find. According to T&E Soft this is the real thing! As you scan the holes there are some clean postcard shots of Diamond Head and the crystal blue Pacific Ocean. No fair! Overall, the game features good SNES graphics.

One to four players can go at a time, and the game automatically records 10 individual records and course records. You can play Stroke or Match or enter a Tournament against 48 other players, and you can set handicaps.

The gameplay is simple and allows precise hitting. The windows and meters in the hitting screen are nicely arranged and enable you adjust the direction of your shot, the power in your swing, your stance to add draw or fade, and the point where your club makes contact with the ball to produce topspin or back- spin. You get a behind the back, full body view of your golfer with wind direction, lie, shot angle, distance from hole info, and an overhead view of the hole including your location. Waialae uses a dancing-dot hitting scheme, which requires three button presses.

ProTip: Always double check the computer's club selection. It doesn't account for wind, only distance.

There's a nice array of options. You can display a dotted line trail to mark your shot trajectory. Fly-by a hole prior to play. You can pick four caddies, who appear in person with advice.

Aloha!

True Golf Classics: Waialae Country Club is a primo golf game. You get a solid, great-looking game of golf with an excellent selection of options. And real purists can fine-tune their strokes to death. All this and Hawaii, too!
