I enjoyed playing golf in the physical world. So I tried dozens of simulator hoping to recapture that feeling. What I enjoyed was walking the course and just enjoying the experience of being in nature. All the stand alone golf simulators concentrated on using a complicated swing HUD and ignored just enjoying being on the course to relax.

When Second Life came along I thought here is a place where you can enjoy just being on the course again. Sure enough in 2006 someone came up with a golf simulation in Second Life where I could enjoy being on the course again. Unfortunately the owners used a very complex swing HUD like the ones in the stand alone simulations. Sadly when you added in SL’s lag the swing became even more complex and unpredictable. You learned not to swing if there was a sail boat in the area.

They are links to places in the Second Life virtual world. If you are a Second Life user and your viewer is running a link to the location will appear in your viewer. It is a good way for existing Second Life users to find a place mentioned on a web site. For example when I take a picture in SL I try to include one of this links so other users can go to the location.

Love and Hugs, Willow
