Don't get fooled by the awesome box!

Oh BOY is this game awful! When reading the box, I thought this would be very fun because you get to create your very own golfing environment. But not only is it extremely, extremely hard to get a 4 or 5 star resort rating within the money you have to spend, I keep putting gopher control buildings and the golfers keep complaining. They're worth $2,000 each. They also complain about being bored, hungry, and tired and have to wait too long for teeing. I keep satisfying them, they keep complaining. And the golfing: I can't explain how boring it is to actually golf on this game. The characters [stinks] and the way of golfing [stinks] too!! The store I bought this from told me I couldn't return this game once I opened it, but I tried to, and boy am I glad they somehow took it. Trust me, don't buy this game. Everything about it is boring and rediculously horrible!!

Worst Tycoon Ever!

This game is terrible. There is no way to know how to make your guests happy. The AI is moronic. Guests will walk a mile to the bathroom even if one is right next to them. This will create new problems. The worst part is that even if your guests hate your golf course you will have a five star resort and win the game easily. It's greatest sin is that this game is just not fun.

Not as good as the first one!

It was not i was upset because when i opened it it did not work i returned and got another one the same thing and this one did not work. I went back again and returned it. Finally it worked but i did not thing it was worth the money. STICK WITH THE FIRST GOLF RESORT TYCOON!!!

One of the best tycoon games I've ever played. They improved the graphics and sound for this sequel. The AI is much improved. You can do a lot more to your golf resort than in the first one. This is definately a great buy for $20.00. Don't listen to people who say this is cheap, crappy, poorly designed and boring. They don't know what they are talking about.

Where is the manual?

The game would have a higher ranking from me; but the lack of a manual makes the course design learning curve too high. I can't understand why they would have a 'documentation' option on the CD and have it be a WORD doccument of the exact same fan-fold piece of junk they included in the box.
The game is well done and fun. Just be prepared for a long learning curve when you start designing courses. The built-in tutorials seem to have a bug too and stop advancing and giving messages. I built the object they asked for but the game didn't notice it and wouldn't continue (twice in the exact same spot.) This increases the frustration from the lack of a manual.
