Recently acquired as part of a trade deal, this game was previously restored for the seller. I don't have many arcade games in my collection, but this was a fun two player game to add.

Enclosing a few pix and a quick video of game play. Hard to film and play one handed, but I'm a lousy golfer, anyway, so I typically blame the putter for the bad shots.

Looks like a nice restore and a nice machine for the collection.
And from what I can see, your woodrails look to be nice also..

Love these! (I have Little Pro)

I have a couple trick shots for a guaranteed win, if money is on the line, that is.

Anyone with one of these send me $5 and I will reveal my proven strategy.

Recently picked up one of these fully restored and love it. For the life of me I can’t find the correct pitch or level for correct play and ball return. Anyone have any suggestions? Any guidance much appreciated. Thanks

Almost flat. A little lean to the front. So balls roll under the playfield to the ball lift.

No exact pitch. You have to play with it so balls don't stay on playfield, yet roll down underneath to the front.

Thanks #LTG and #oldcarz for the reply. Yep working perfectly. Turns out when it was restored they changed over to LED bulbs and some of the screws in the wood tray were missing so the wood had a bit of a belly to it which held them from rolling back to the trough. Working awesome now all fixed. Game looks new and plays perfectly. Yet another odd piece to mix up the collection. Thanks.

Fits in real nice between that slick-looking popcorn machine and the cult classic themed modern pin!

Yeah temperary holding position till the Deluxe shooting gallery arrives. Wanted to have Every sport covered. Have Penny Pinch, horse shoes, bowling, Midget bowling, hockey, Scientific batting, Motorama driving, speedway, basketball, Sportsman hunting, and now mini golf. Football is my only search remaining. Addictive search but fun.

I love this game so much.

This and Chicago Coin's Par Golf were two of my favorites back in the day.

Quite the diverse collection. Speaking of football, I currently own Gridiron, restoring a really nice pro football and also have a very rare All-American quarterback by Williams that I'm doing a restoration on for a friend. There are many others but those are 3 classic EMs.

Thanks much will have a look. Been Really getting into these older coin op and mannequin type games. Rather amazing what they created back in the day with the technology available.
