If you have ever played any sort of golf game for the personal computer running wither the MS DOS operating system or Windows, you don’t need to know much about Jack Nicklaus’ Unlimited Golf and Course Design than the title. This is a very straightforward game that was licensed by Jack Nicklaus, the Golden Bear, himself. It was developed by Sculptured Software and published by Accolade, Inc in the very early nineties. It was also available for the Amiga home computer.
Other than that bit of statistical information, the title of the game tells it all. We can glean that it is a sports game centering around golf. It also features course design, or a constructor kit, which many gamers really enjoy. The courses you play are limited only by your imagination and you can build a set of links as smooth or as challenging as you like.
The rest of the game play is pretty standard with aiming and selecting power for your strokes. The goal is the same as standard golf: to finish the course with the fewest number of strokes. Jack Nicklaus’ Unlimited Golf and Course Design was released at about the same
time as Links and PGA Tour Golf, which feature a bit better game play but do not have the option of such a cool constructor kit. Perhaps fans of golf should focus on the “And Course Design” portion of this game.
