Jim kitchin's Golf game is absolutely the largest, most complex and fiendish audio golf program you will find anywhere! As per the rules of golf, attempt to get your ball into each of the 18 holes on the various courses in as few shots as possible, then once on the green, put the ball kneetly into the hole. Of course with sand traps, ruff, and even lakes and ponds for your ball to fall into, this is often easier said than done.
Jim kitchin's wingolf program lets you play through every aspect of the game from the comfort of your Pc, everything from selecting the right club, wood, iron or pitching wedge, to giving the right swing (accomplished by carefully judging an escalating sound file), and a vast variety of golfing situations, sand traps, bunkers and slopes.
Thanks to various course statistics (not the least being how many eagles and birdies you achieved), you can always keep up with your par on each course. And speaking of courses there are literally hundreds!
Thanks to the quick and symple Golf course maker which comes with the main Golf program, the game now comes with a massive 342 courses written by various fans, often in incredibly interesting locations such as Hogwarts School of witchcraft and wizardry or even middle earth.
As in all of Jim kitchin's games, with the use of the in built microsoft Sapi synthesiser, everything is of course completely self voicing. Also, as with all of Jim's other games, Wingolf is completely free.
Before installing any of Jim Kitchin's games, you need to download and Install the Winkit program found here This will create a folder where the other games are installed and a menue system for accessing the rest of Jim's games. it also installs the game of life, but if you don't want that, just run th e Uninlife file found in whatever folder you installed the Kitchinsinc games in (C:\program files\kitchinsinc) by default. Running the other unin files also individually removes each of Jim's games separately.
If you want to try out Jim's earlier version of Golf, which was self voicing rather than using microsoft sapi, you can Download that here
