      Transf Golf is OK
      By Uncle Bob on 04/18/2012 - 13:49
    • This golf is easy to use and has nice graphics and sound. It takes place on a coordinate grid. The drawbacks are that translations move only one unit at a time, and the nine holes do not vary in hole placements. This could be a useful demo board for showing what happens to coordinates under rotations, reflections and translations.
