Golf Game Instructions
This lets you play a game of golf at the lovely Maynard country club. In the game you select what club to use and the computer figures out where your ball landed. Lowered numbered clubs go further. Clubs 29 to 23 are same as clubs 19 to 13 when used at distance percent of .99.
This game is the same between the ETOS version and the OS/8 version except the OS/8 version you are playing at the Maynard country club (DEC's home town) and the ETOS one you are playing at Hartford, the companies home towns.
Note: This is a basic game, see
