No Good Gofers is a Williams pinball machine released in December 1997. It was Pat Lawlor's final design for Williams before their eventual closing in 1999.[1]


The game revolves around Buzz and Bud, two gophers who are wreaking havoc on any and all golfers playing on their "turf". The gofers "pop-up" during gameplay to taunt the player, as well as provide entry ways to locks.

No Good Gofers also has a "slam-ramp" feature which if used correctly, will award the player a "hole-in-one" shot. Performing this is tricky, as the ball must travel off the ramp, into the air, and into a very small hole located on the game's upper playfield. The "hole-in-one" shot is often called one of the greatest shots in pinball history.

The game uses the DCS Sound System.

Digital versions[edit]

No Good Gofers is a playable licensed table in The Pinball Arcade for several platforms and also included in the Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection.
