|Golf Japan Course was released on February 21, 1987 in Japan for 3500 Yen.|
Golf Japan Course was part of a special contest in Japan organized by Nintendo. The extra options on the game menu allowed the player to save not only his best score, but also his name and address. Golf Japan Course is one of the blue disk game that could be loaded onto a Disk Fax. The Disk Fax machines, installed in stores and special locations in Japan, were directly connected to Nintendo's head offices and would fax the information contained on the disks. Consequently, players could send their best scores and personal info to Nintendo and be part of the contest. The deadline for Golf Course Japan was, it seems, April 30th, 1987. The prize was a Golden Disk version of Golf Japan Course featuring an extra unreleased course and offered in a diskun plastic case. Obviously, these disks are extremely rare today (only around 5,000 of these disks are supposed to exist) and are sought after by Famicom collectors all around the world.
