Golf (GB / Game Boy)

Game Profile

This re-release of the 1990 Game Boy™ classic brings you 32 holes of realistic links action.

That's two full courses, with hazards that change every time you play!

Each hole has tricky hazards, so strategy is a must. Read the wind direction, check the distance, select a club, adjust your swing, and keep your eye on the ball. Then, drive it home. A scorecard will keep track of your points for each hole. Aim to beat your current best score!

From twisting fairways and hungry sandtraps, to big water hazards and deceptive greens, Golf is packed with challenges.

USA USA Version

Posted by Philip J Reed

Yep. It's golf.

Rare is the game that leaves us truly speechless, but the Game Boy version of Golf is certainly one of them. Of course that's just because there's not really much to talk about. Golf, as you might expect, is a golf game. Whatever comes to mind when you...

Actually there's 2 courses ('Japan' and 'USA') so that's 36 holes.
I liked this a lot when it was originally out, I still have the original cart but will download this as my original gameboy broke years ago (i still have a super gameboy + SNES to play GB carts).
It's aged a lot better than the baseball and tennis games and unlike those won't suffer much without the two player mode.

This is supposedly coming out Sept 8th in the U.S. How many golf games for the 3DS does this make now? Of all the sports games they've released on VC, I think this one will fare the best. Bring it on!

I want this. I also have the free NES Open Tournament Golf. I downloaded Baseball for Game Boy. That's all.

Beileve it or not, this is actually pretty good. (Much better then Tennis or Baseball) It plays more like a "stredgey" game then a mere "sports" game. Planning ahead, figuring out what club to use, and where to aim prior to swinging your club actually gives this game alot more depth then people give it credit for. It's worth a shot even if you don't like old-school sports games, it might prove surprising.

@Beau_Skunk It is quite good! I'm liking it. Remember you can also go back to the green screen vintage Gameboy screen by pressing L and R buttons plus X (I think) or Y.. anyhow, I like it in green screen better than greyscale. Great little game!

Not interested, plus 150 coins is a little high for a $2.99 e-shop game. Ninty give us more choices already, I don't want my points to expire next year.
