Golf Sector Six

Alan Shepherd made golfing on other planets famous during Apollo 14 when he became the first and only person to take a shot on the Moon.  I am sure a lot of duffers would relish the chance to take a shot and see an amazingly long drive leave their club due to the lower gravity.

Now you can thanks to Golf Sector 6.  Golf Sector 6 lets you try your hand at golfing on the Moons of Saturn.  Careful, it is easy to launch balls into orbit or even totally escape some of these moons!  It is based on real data from Saturn’s Moons and incorporates imagery from the Cassini spacecraft currently orbiting Saturn.

It may not be as advanced as Tiger Woods golf games for the PS3, but the scenery is spectacular!
