Greg Norman's Golf Power is a golf-simulation video game developed by Gremlin Interactive for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), and published by Virgin Interactive in 1992.[1] It was the final golf title published for the NES.

Gameplay[edit]

Other than bearing the name and likeness of Australian professional golfer Greg Norman, the game is distinguished from most other golf simulations by providing a hole-design mode in which you can create and customize your own 18-hole course. The cartridge contained a battery back-up that allowed the player to save their created course.[3] Along with the hole-design mode, there are four pre-set courses, taking place in England, Scotland, the United States, and Japan.

The game made use of the NES Four Score, which allows for four-player gameplay.
