    I totally agree with deanco, i cant play any other games this rocks! I want also make 18 holes and buy new courses from Florida etc. But is there possibility to save your golf courses so that you can built it again afterwards, i know you can play tournaments afterwards, but when you finish it, game quits to desktop.

        I'm not sure why this happens, but for some reason the demo downloads with the name Sid Meiers SimGold DEMO, but it's an exe file. I just renamed the file and added ".exe" to the end and it worked fine.

          Yes...just put .exe behind it...maybe select "All files" too...and it should do the trick...

          As for the game...it's quite entertaining...quite a dynamic game...I just can't find the soda vendor...

            Hiring people is done under the 'people' button. Once you're on the right screen, click the thumbs up button to get a list of people you can hire.

            Has anyone bought the airstrip yet? Gotten their fun factor up to 300? Me, I can get it up to around 210 or so.

            I'm also starting to use a single strip of fairway in many cases, it seems to be more effective in providing a challenge, even though it looks less good when you zoom out.

            Raising and lowering land is a very powerful tool. One tiny click can completely change how the hole plays. And it's great for elevated tees and greens as well.

            How about it, Mr. Moderator? Can SimGolf get it's own forum?

              In case you haven't noticed, this is a Civilization game site, not a Sid one. I'd rather see a HOMM forum than see that abomination yin26 inflicted upon us given its own forum.

                In case you haven't noticed, this is the internet, not some private club where you can fire off snobby, snide remarks to anyone who hasn't hung out here enough to have a 'king' next to their name. Yes, it's a Civ forum. I noticed. So what?? I see lots of other games that have their own forums here. Did you ever hear of "expanding the site's focus"? Or does 'thinking outside the box' signal the downfall of the Apolyton boards as we know them?

                I suggest taking a walk, or seeing a movie for a change. Sheesh.

                      The game will get its own forum if there's sufficient interest.

                      But lets not get insulting here, it is indeed a privately owned website, and our ability to post messages is a previlege, not a right.

                          I really enjoyed the demo as well. Man, was I disappointed to hit the 3 hole limit -- I was really having fun. Definitely makes me want to go out and get the game. I think I'll probably get Sim Golf instead of Civ 3 if I ever do get anything.

                            I love this game already. Only it gets a little boring playing only three holes

                            Anyone else who always makes at least one island green?
