3D Championship Golf Instructions

Just like other golf games out there, 3D Championship Golf comes with a very easy to hand and straightforward control scheme. For the most part, you just need to use your mouse - for tweaking the power of your shot and its snap. On the other hand, the directional keys - the left and right arrow keys to be specific, is for the angle of your shot. That's about it for the controls. Now let's take a closer look at the game.

3D Championship Golf Walkthrough

Wondered how good or bad you would fare in a 9-hole golf game? Want to play golf BUT can't go outside for whatever reason? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then 3D Championship Golf is yours for the taking. In this online golf game, you are going to play a 9-hole handicap golf game.

The goal of the game is straightforward and easy: You have the club and the ball, and there's the hole on the other side of the course. You need to put the ball into the whole...and you need to do so within a number of strokes. While you can go beyond the number of strokes required, you will have a positive score (which is NOT really a good thing in golf!).

Let's have a closer look at the interface, this will surely help you play the game better: (1) On the upper left hand corner, you will find hole you are setting your sights on, the distance from the starting point to the hole (measured in yards), as well as the Par. For example, in the 4th hole in this game, the distance is 357 yards and par 4. To have a breakeven score, you must spend only 4 shots to make it to the hole. Right beside those figures, you will find what sort of ground the ball is in - grass, rough, etc. This is important for determining the power of your swing.

(2) Right below that, you will find your scores for the other holes, the wind direction and power, as well as how many strokes you have already taken for that hole. By the way, just like in other golf games, you can't take wind direction for granted. What could be a hole-in-one can easily end up in the water or bunkers if you don't take the wind direction in consideration. (3) Right in the middle of the screen, you will find the Power, the Snap, as well as your current distance to the pin. Put your mouse near the golfer and press the left click button to fill the power bar. By the way, the power bar will only be filled once and it will be emptied... so you need to perfectly time your hit on the left click button if you want to achieve optimal power for your swing.

(4) And last BUT definitely not the least, on the right hand side of the game's screen, you will find the mini map. This shows you a top-down view of the golf course and hole. From there, you will see the hazards, bunkers, water, etc. that you need to avoid... and you better avoid them like plague!

By the way, if you accidentally land the ball to the water, for example, it would take one stroke to pick it up and place it behind the hazards, and you would have to take another stroke to hit it. When you only have par 3, par 4, or par 5 in many of the holes in 3D Championship Golf, landing the ball to a hazard, even just once, could instantly kill your hopes of having a good score for that hole. BUT don't sweat it. This is a single player game and you don't have any opponents.

As for the aesthetics or visual appeal of the game, it's not excellent but it's not bad either. I'd say it's good enough for an online and flash-based golf game. Summing things up, 3D Championship Golf may not be on the top 10 list of realistic golf games found in the internet. HOWEVER, that doesn't mean it's not fun to play.

If you are someone who loves 9-hole golf, if you want to play BUT can't, if you don't mind the quite simplistic graphics, give 3D Championship Golf, I'm sure (one way or another) you will like it.
