Be the Course Designer, CEO and Resident Pro of Your Very Own Golf Resort!
In Sid Meier’s Sim Golf, the latest creation from legendary game designer Sid Meier, you’ll try and grow your business from a small, public pitch-and-putt to a five-star resort complete with world-class golf holes, professional tournaments and luxury accommodations. To do this, you’ll need to design courses that are fun and challenging and manage your resort’s resources to satisfy your guests’ growing needs. You’ll even have a chance to test your course and your golf skills when your Sims challenge you to a round!

  • Your Dream Course and Your Very Own Golf Resort – Choose one of 16 locations for your very first golf club; a variety of different environments include woodlands, desert, tropical and Scottish links. Create the world’s most beautiful, challenging and outrageous golf courses by creating rolling fairways, lush greens and strategically placed water hazards. Make it your own by raising and lowering terrain, and adding Japanese gardens and scenic landmarks! Build an entire golf resort from the ground-up with everything from luxury hotels to airstrips.
  • Grow Your Club – Hold tournaments, sell memberships and entice the rich and famous to build homes on your resort. Modify your course and resort to respond to the needs and interests of your Sim guests by building resort facilities. Keep them happy with everything from ball washers and pro shops to casinos.
  • Hit the Links with Your Sims – Dabble in the lives of your resort members as they react and respond to your course design decisions. Create your own golf pro and then test your course. Develop your golfer’s skills and compete in one-on-one matches and tournaments.
  • Customize – Each Sim golfer has his or her own name, personality, appearance and dialogue that are fully customizable. Re-create yourself, your friends, or your family and see how they perform on your course.
