A bronze ball represents an easy course, a silver ball represents a medium course, and a gold ball represents a hard course.
Once you've selected the course you want to play, you can choose from 3 different options: Front 9, Back 9, or Full Course.
After clearing out these dialogs, you'll have the opportunity to place the ball anywhere on the tee.
Of course, before you decide where to tee up, you might want to know more about the hole - like the best path to approach from.
- "Weekly" courses: As you might expect from the name, these courses are generated every week by randomly pulling holes from the current "Standard" courses.
That means you'll see holes you've already played before but in an entirely different order than you're used to, making for a whole new game experience!
So before you can shoot the ball, you have to place the ball on the tee.
Each hole has a "Par" setting, which tells you the average number of "strokes" expected to complete the hole - shooting more shots than that puts you over Par, while shooting less puts you under Par.The camera starts zoomed as far from the hole as possible, but you can zoom into the hole to focus down on whatever details you find most important.There are a few ways to do this using the Zoom Meter, which is located on the golf bag in the lower-right corner of the screen.You can either click the /- signs at the top and bottom of the bar, grab and drag the Zoom slider, or click anywhere along the Zoom bar to instantly move to that zoom level.You can also roll the mouse wheel to quickly and easily adjust the zoom level.
Clicking the mouse wheel button will return the camera to the most zoomed out view.
