Types of Golf Games
Generally, the score is calculated from the number of shots used to get the ball into the hole. The game which also takes player’s handicap into consideration is called Nett. If no handicap is considered, only the number of achieved shots, the game is called Gross. Player with the smallest number of shots is the winner.
Creative Golf 3D currently supports these types of standard golf games:
- Best Ball Stroke
- Match Play
- Texas Scramble

Playing a Hole
The sheet in the left top corner displays the score, ball position surface, distance to pin, and shot length for each player. The shot length consists of 2 numbers; first one being the distance of ball flight (carry), second one complete ball travel (flight plus rolling). Players who already finished the hole are marked by a small pin picture. Players in the sheet are sorted according to their distance from the pin. The yellow one (see image below) is on stroke.
