Color Golf III is a lower resolution golf game, originally put out by Tom Mix Software in 1982, early in the Coco's life. When T&D Software (a cassette/disk magazine) bought the rights to the Tom Mix catalog years later, they usually just straight copied the original game over, but this was an exception, and was modified for the magazine. In the game, you can have up to 4 players, and can select how many holes you want to play (up to 18), and then you use the keyboard to select clubs, angles and shots from the randomly generated holes. It shows a zoomed in view of the green, once you make it that far. Unfortunately, when it draws the actual shot, it just quickly draws a line of the path, rather than showing an animated ball. Still, not a bad game for being both in BASIC, and (originally) being release within 2 years of the original Coco coming to market. One sign of the times; it had the option to print your card with your scores for every hole you play onto a real printer.
