World Class Leader Board, known as World Class Leaderboard Golf in the US, is a golf game for the Sega Mega Drive, Sega Master System and Sega Game Gear.

Gameplay

World Class Leader Board is a sequel to the 1986 release of Leader Board by Access Software. While the Game Gear and Master System versions are similar to the home computer ports, the Mega Drive version has a different user interface, with an extra, pseudo-3D top-down view positioned on the right hand side of the screen.

Artwork originally designed for the 1986 Sega Master System game Great Golf can be seen in the game's US manual.

History

Legacy

The Sega Mega-CD release of Links: The Challenge of Golf is a spiritual sequel to this game.
