Neo Turf Masters (c) 1996 Nazca.

An absolutely superb arcade golf game in which one or two players choose from a selection of six different golfers, each possessing different strengths and weaknesses. Four eighteen-hole golf courses are available: Germany, Japan, Australia and U.S.A. The two game modes on offer are one-player stroke play against the CPU, or stroke or match-play against a second player.


SNK Neo-Geo MVS hardware

Game ID : 0200

Main CPU : 68000 (@ 12 Mhz)

Sound CPU : Z80 (@ 4 Mhz)

Sound Chips : YM2610 (@ 8 Mhz)

Control : 8-way joystick

=> [A] Power then Height and shot, [B] Hook, [C] Slice


Released in January 1996.

This game is known in Japan as "Big Tournament Golf".

This is the first Nazca game written for the Neo-Geo MVS. Nazca was formed by Irem ex members, which is the reason why Neo Turf Masters adopts many of the graphic and gameplay aspects of Irem's "Major Title" series.


* Random Selection : Press A+B+C+D at the player selection AND/OR the course selection screen.

* Here are the different golfers we can select with their country and their statistics :

Young Hero (USA) : Driving 3 - Accuracy 3 - Skill 3 - Recovery 3 - Putting 3

Technician (United Kingdom) : Driving 2 - Accuracy 4 - Skill 5 - Recovery 4 - Putting 3

Veteran (Australia) : Driving 1 - Accuracy 2 - Skill 4 - Recovery 5 - Putting 2

Shot Maker (Germany) : Driving 4 - Accuracy 5 - Skill 2 - Recovery 2 - Putting 4

Power Golfer (Brazil) : Driving 5 - Accuracy 1 - Skill 1 - Recovery 1 - Putting 1

Putt Master (Japan) : Driving 3 - Accuracy 2 - Skill 4 - Recovery 2 - Putting 5

* Sometimes contests appear during a circuit :

1) The closest to the pin contest : you have to hit the ball as close as possible to the hole in one hit. If the ball gets closer to the pin than the previous record, you will earn a bonus hole.

2) The longest driving contest : you have to shoot the ball as far as possible in one hit. If you exceed the previous record, you will earn a bonus hole.

* The order from the best to the worst performance is :

Albatros (3 hits less than for a Par)

Eagle (2 hits less than for a Par)

Birdie (1 hit less than for a Par)

Par (the average level)

Bogey (1 hit more than for a Par)

Double Bogey (2 hits more than for a Par)

Triple Bogey (3 hits more than for a Par)

If you miss the attempt to make a Triple Bogey, you will have to give up the hole and will suffer an additional penalty.

If the ball arrives out of bound or in the water, you will be penalized one stroke.

* You CAN apply spin to the ball, forward or back. Neo Turf Masters requires two taps on the keypad to strike the ball. The first tap determines power, the second tap determines loft. After the first tap and before the second, push up or down on the joystick. You can get a wicked backspin on the ball. You can also forward spin through the wind, or land short and roll nicely up a hill.
