Sid Meier is known for great games - "Railroad Tycoon" and "Civilization." These games are far from a golf management sim. The team of Sid Meier and Maxis has created a game that is far more addicting and fun then one would imagine.
To have a successful golf resort you'll need to build pretty, challenging (but not to challenging) golf courses. You'll also need snack buildings. Of course you'll have to build a tee and the green. There are also options to build sand traps, water, bunkers, and landmarks. There are lots of flowers and trees to grow as well.
There are a variety of buildings for you to build, almost all of them to expensive when starting out. You'll find a pro shop, tennis court, cart garage, home sites for celebrities, snacks, and of course practice areas for driving and putting. Another important part of building is changing the terrain level. Flat land isn't going to be much of a change, but add some slopes, and the course becomes more fun.
You'll have to hire employees to help make the golfers as happy as possible. You can hire a weed killer, a soda salesman, and a celebrity greeter. As you build courses, you'll have the option to hire better workers.
A fun feature of "SimGolf's" is the ability to play your own course. You take a practice run through the course, play in tournaments for large cash prizes, or play against another pro. When playing against a golf pro, money is wagered on each hole and for the complete game. This is always a good way to find areas where you need to improve.
