Did you already decide how to score in this game?

In the Lemon64 competition it was 500 - your score (in example: 500 - 80 (for Cypress Creek) - 90 (for St. Andrews) = 330 pts.). You will not be in first place if you just played one course this way. Of course, lowest score wins, but it's the same in the real game.

I think it worked pretty good, but it might be worth reflecting on a different base score than 500. A lower base score will award less bonus points.

How about?

500 (=/- Cypress Creek), + 500 (+/- St. Andrews) * 1,000

eg
-9 and +18 = 1,009,000

Whoops! Forgot to put the scoring system in...

I had a look at our Sensi Golf round to see how we did it and just went for 'play both courses for your score to count'. Probably not too fair in hindsight. Maybe a better way would be to just add, say, 50 points (or whatever) for those who only play one course? That way those who don't play both have no way of ganing an advantage over those that do.

How does that translate into a formula though...

Can the score table handle minus numbers?

For example -32 as a winning score?

I set the table up to ascending order in any case.

That's why I was suggesting the base score.

I am certain the table can handle minus numbers as it managed during Sensi Golf a few years back.

However if you're posting your actual score (i.e. not -3 under par or whatever) than negative numbers shouldn't come into it. So we'll bang on an additional 200 points for those who only take part in one course, so that way those who play both should never be disadvantaged.

Thanks for being first JanciB. Hole 11 must have been a frustration.

Just a note to say if anyone is finding the WHDLoad version crashes; you have to select the dh: button FIRST in order to then click the name of the course.

WCLB also loves 000 settings, or as slow an Amiga as you can find. (!)

Ok, I'll take hole 11 on the Cypress Creek course as an example of a little how-to.


As you can see, I'm aiming a little bit to the right. First: the wind is blowing the ball slightly to the left side and second: There's a chance that your ball will still land on the fairway if you hit the trees. It will definitely end in the rough or the bunker if you hit a tree on the left side.

I played the ball with a very little hook and ended right behind the bunker.

I'm again aiming a tiny bit (one or two pixels) right of the flag due to the wind. Talking about the wind. You might be wandering why I choose an Iron 8 for this stroke if you know the length of the clubs (see the graphic here), but I thought with this kind of tailwind an Iron 7 will be too much.


That was obviously not the worst decision, so let's go to the green.


This putt is doable, but it's still nasty. Aiming to the right and there we go.


Meh. The direction was perfect, but I was a little short (about 14 on the strength bar on the right).

Anyway, the rest is a piece of cake et voila, here is a Par 4 on hole 11 in Cypress Creek and there was a good chance for a birdie.


Most important hint: Learn the timing for a straight stroke from the tee-off and the fairway. If the ball is on the green after two strokes like in this example, you can't be that wrong to play a double bogey.
You might loose three or four strokes for the whole course if your putting isn't perfect, but you'll loose fifteen or twenty if your long shots don't work.

I think I can help you with Hole 3 of Cypress Creek... the secret is to use the tractor beam to get the ball on the green itself, and then use the force field to propel the ball down the hole. If you shoot the brown mole with your mini-gun, he will pick up the ball from the tee, and give you a hole-in-one for free! - as long as you have collected 100 coins from the tree house complex. Or at least thats what I heard.
