12:35 PM | Galen Wiley | Comment on this story

In an official press release, the mac publishing label of Destineer, Bold, has announced that the highly anticipated golf simulator, Links Championship Edition is now available to Macintosh gamers at a store shelf near you.

Links Championship Edition is the newest addition to the already popular Links franchise. This new, improved version of the older Links games includes several exciting changes for fans of the series. Thirteen full courses, 17 different golfers, a course designer, and OS X compatibility are just a few of the new enhancements featured in Links Championship Edition

And now, the official press release:

Destineer's Macintosh label, Bold, announces that Microsoft's highly anticipated top-selling golf sim, Links™ Championship Edition, is now available for Macintosh. The game began shipping to stores and end-users on July 26.

"Links Championship Edition is a massive package," according to Destineer's president Peter Tamte. "Earlier Links products usually shipped with 5 courses. Links Championship Edition includes 13 full courses. Plus, the entire game has been re-written to offer completely new graphics and physics. And, we are also now including a course designer -- which is a full 3D editing application that lets players create their own courses."

Links Championship Edition now includes 17 different golfers, including Sergio Garcia, Annika Sorenstam, and more. Other features in Links Championship Edition include a Course Converter, which lets users of many earlier Links games import their older courses. Additionally, users can download thousands of courses created by other Links users free from the Web. Links players can now also compete online through either a direct connection or through GameRanger.

Links Championship Edition for Macintosh works with Mac OS 9 or higher, as well as natively on Mac OS X. The game runs well on most Macintosh computers with a G3 or G4 processor running at 266Mhz or faster and at least 64MB of RAM. Destineer recommends a 300MHz or faster processor and at least 128MB of RAM to use the game's Arnold Palmer Course Designer.

Interested in grabbing a copy of Links Championship Edition? The IMG Store is now carrying the product. MacGames CD subscribers can grab a copy for just $42.95 while non-subscribers can purchase it for $48.95.
