New 3D Golf Simulation: Pebble Beach no Hatou (ペブルビーチの波涛) is a 1992 golf game for the PC-98 by T&E Soft in their New 3D Golf Simulation series which takes place at the Pebble Beach Golf Links golf course in California. T&E Soft ported the game to the Sega Mega Drive in 1993 along with three other New 3D Golf Simulation games; however, unlike those three ports, this one did receive an international release under T&E's equivalent True Golf Classics label as Pebble Beach Golf Links.

Gameplay

As with computer games of the time, this game has user accounts stored in cartridge SRAM, with room for 10 players. After registering yourself as a player in the "Create Data" option at the main menu, you can choose to start one of several different match types. Each swing occurs as followed:

  1. Use Left and Right to change direction. Up and Down zoom out/in to see more. C confirms each step.
  2. Select a club with the D-pad.
  3. Select a stance with the D-pad.
  4. Hit C to begin the meter that chooses swing power, then C again to choose where on the ball the club hits, then C to finally swing.

A shows the hole. B opens up a menu with various options.

Pebble Beach lacks the ability to adjust starting tee position, a feature which is present in later games in the series.
