48 Great Golf Courses of the World

Listed as MIA in the HOL but here's a case for it not being IA to begin with.

I found, in The Boiler Room BBS archive three disks:

GOLFW1.WRP P 627498 09-07-90 Courses of the World !!! (Data Disk 1) !!!
GOLFW2.WRP P 690114 09-07-90 Courses of the World !!! (Data Disk 2) !!!
GOLFW3.WRP P 149018 09-07-90 Courses of the World !!! (Data Disk 3) !!!
for use with World Class Leaderboard Golf

Disk 3 is LBBonus which is the same as (by file list, didn't check CRC) both:

World Class Leader Board - Extra Courses 5 (1988)(Access)[data disk].zip
World Class Leader Board - Famous Courses of the World Bonus Courses (1990)(Access)[h Sax Man][data disk].zip

Interestingly, "Sax Man" is listed as the publisher on the HOL.

There are, indeed, 48 courses on disks 1 and 2 of the .WRPs I found, all included in either or both of the course compilations, "Extra Courses" and "Famous Courses" (which have dupes among themselves; a real mess if someone were trying to piece together all the courses for Leaderboard).

Anyway, my guess is that "Sax Man" just picked 48 courses from already existing course disks and put them on 2 disks, threw in LBBonus as a disk 3 and called it "48 Great Golf Courses of the World" without it ever actually being a real commercial release. I think "Sax Man" was either scamming for credits on some BBS or was a fan and wanted to make his own best-of compilation.

The three disks from the BBS archive have been uploaded to The Zone.

Hi paranoid,

excuse my Off Topic: do you know which program did those BBS use in order to create .WRP files back in the day?

It was called Warp.

It was later largely replaced with DMS, which did about the same thing but (I assume) better.

You can convert thousands of warp images straight to ADF with only one click.

With only one click??? How?
Warp requires some CLI commands, and X-Copy requires more than one click (and .adf creation, copy from .wrp to .adf etc.)
Spit out your program's name!

REALLY: how do you convert .wrp into .adf with a click of the mouse?

(can't sleep btw )
Yet this entry is still in HOL. Is there any proof this was ever released as a commercial add-on? For now I go with paranoid to say that it's rather some 'scene' course disk.
