Golf Resort Tycoon allows you to design, build, develop and, with a little luck and skill, amass great virtual wealth from your personally owned and operated golf course and resort. Beginning with a relatively empty stretch of land, you manipulate elevations with terrain editing tools and sculpt the layout to reflect the links of your imagination. Greens, fairways, bunkers and water hazards can be added with ease, as the resort grows before your eyes from an isometric perspective.
The name of the game, though, is profit. Budgeting wisely is a necessity as you build a clubhouse and add potential moneymakers such as a swimming pool, tennis courts, health spa, hotels, restaurants, pro shops and gardens. You need to hire golf pros and groundskeepers, provide food and beverage stands, carts, restrooms, putting greens and a driving range to attract and keep paying customers.
A 3D perspective allows you to get up close and personal with resort guests as you observe their reactions to different features as you mold your dream resort. Scenarios with predetermined objectives and a freeform "sandbox" mode are offered as gameplay options to give you freedom of creation. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
