Golfamania is a golf video game released exclusively for the Sega Master System in Brazil and Europe. One of the game's innovative features is its create-a-player mode. The game uses a battery-packed RAM in order to save progress.
Experience points are gained by doing well in holes. Power, accuracy, and luck are the only stats that can be powered-up by the player. Each player starts out with an experience level of 0 and with zero experience points. Certain golfers in the game do resemble those from real life PGA professionals from the 1980s like Greg Norman.
There is only one golf course; which has some island holes in addition to trees and bunkers. A fanfare is performed when a player performs at par or better; the only other music track other than the title screen music. There is a digitized sound clip when a drive is delivered in a perfect fashion. Some of the holes have special awards where bonus amounts of experience points can be earned by either having the longest drive or achieving a hole in one.
The main menu allows players to choose between a practice session, a match play game, a stroke play match, and a pro tournament. In the pro tournament, the player can ask for advice on the best way to deal with an individual hole.
