I see only 9 holes has been voted.
In an other way, game's name is "18 Holes Pro Golf" so it sounds logical to play 18 holes.

Or maybe, as the game have a clone (progolfa), we can play 18 holes on progolf and 9 holes on progolfa ?

By the way, Dan, can you playback your own input ?
Or other people ?
I fail playing it back (desync first hole)

I think the desync happens on the first swing. The decision was for 9 holes but only 5 people voted? We can have another vote. But we should be able to play it back too.

I don't know why, but the signal of the coin is not recorded in the replay file.
However, I can playback if I insert the coin at once after the game started.

This game is "18 Holes Pro Golf".
But, I think of 1-9 halls and 10-18 halls like the same course.
This game might be better with 9 holes.

Another case of PORT_CHANGED callbacks, which are not triggered by input from an INP. It's a known bug (I should know, I posted the bug report at MAMEtesters over 7 months ago), which I guess is not high enough priority for MAMEdev to fix.

I can play this back reliably with a manual credit inserted, a score of 66200 is posted for the 23 strokes of the first 9 holes, but since there is no credit required at the 10th hole, this game should allow 18 holes by default. I believe the past poll post was for games that required a credit per hole or 9 holes, this game does not so it should be allowed to play a full game. 156000 score at 48 strokes for 18 holes.

Then the question comes, should the game then be scored by points and not by strokes?
