Dos Golf Game that I want to download

Archived from groups: rec.sport.golf,comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.sports (More info?)

I have been looking for a long time for a game, with dos-level
graphics, you start in a pro shop with a few menu options + types of
play, with about 8 different courses to go to, and 18 holes per
course, with pro players' standings in the game, but you have to play
as a created character, in order to swing you press the spacebar +
there is a little percentage meter at the bottom, and when the ball
lands it sounds like BLOOP-BLooP-bloop.
I have this game on a computer at my grandma's house, and have no clue
where I can find it online.
If anyone can help, please do.

    First off, is a DOS game?

    Second, that BLOOP-BLoop-bloop really narrows it down.

    You might be looking at a very early EA game. Also, there's Mean 18 or any
    of the Nicklaus games following. Then there's Leaderboard, the precursor to
    Links. You could also be describing British Open Golf.

    But if I had to take a wild guess (and this is a wild one, based on the
    information you've provided) my guess is Mean 18. But then it could be
    Leaderboard also, both of which I believe used the spacebar to power up the
    swing.

    Do a search on Underdogs (I don't have the url at the moment) and then
    browse their selections. They have a lot of free, old games, categorized
    for easy search.

    That's about the best I can do for you, young chap. :)

    That sounds like the original PGA Tour Golf from EA.

    Here's the link to the Underdogs mentioned in the previous post:

    Check the page here, and see if the screenshot looks familiar:

    If that's not it, there are plenty of them listed here:

    Hope you find it.

    I had to guess, you'd be talking about the original PGA Tour Golf by
    EA Sports. Go here and you'll find most of the various old-school
    golf games, though...

    Somehow sounds like David Ledbetter golf by Microprose. Check
    Underdogs.
  6. I have 2 older DOS NICKLAUS games. BEAR'S TRACK and MUIRFIELD.

    How do I delete players and reset highest score boards?

    If you may be able to help email joby@hfx.eastlink.ca
