|Publisher(s)||Simon and Schuster Interactive|
|Mode(s)||Single-player, mutliplayer (up to 4 players)|
Players take control of 10 playable characters, each with their own unique caddy. The series is noted for its crude humor, particularly in regard to the characters, most of whom fall under an exaggerated archetype. These include a stripper, a hippie, a biker, and more.
Unique to the series is the "Composure Meter". The better you're playing, the higher your composure, and vice versa. The distance on your clubs increases/decreases as your composure goes up or down, respectively. This is designed to simulate frustration - the more shots you miss, the more frustrated you get, and the worse you play. In order to counteract this, you can beat or humiliate your caddy in some way, which raises your composure meter back up.
