KB Productions has released a simple freeware Mac golf game called
KGA Golf. An entry in this year’s uDevGame 2002 contest, KGA Golf is freeware, and ready for download now.

Developer Karl Becker likens KGA Golf to the golf games available for Nintendo’s Game Boy handheld video game — it displays the course graphics from an overhead perspective, and using a simple slider tool and popup menu, you pick your club, aim your shot and swing.
KGA Golf includes two courses — one’s a nine-hole course and the other is a full 18-hole course. The game also saves games in progress and tracks your best rounds.
Becker has created a separately available hole and course editor you can download, so you can build your own custom course if you want to. Becker promises to make other courses available for download from the KGA Golf Web site, too.
