This looks like the same engine but maybe rehashed under an official license of some sort.

This is just one course, while Fore has three. The rest of the difference is likely trees and foliage, as St Andrews has none.

In any case, there's a lite version available for Fore, and I'd say it would be also indicative of the gameplay here.

The one course - the Old Course - makes perfect sense. I missed the clue in the title

Still, you can never have too much golf (fond memories of PGA Tour Golf 2 and 3 on the Megadrive here, and Zany Golf, and Links 2004 on Xbox, and Everybody's Golf on PS3 and PSP, and Let's Golf, Tiger on 360) so this too is a sure bet

The Old Course and Fore! share the same engine, however The Old Course features a newer and more updated engine which now includes 3D so buildings, etc. can be rendered properly.

Also includes Facebook Connect so you can show and boast to your friends about your scores.

pepsi..
