I asked if this was a full version of the original miniverse game. You replied that it was. It is not. There is only 4 holes for each type of playing field. I expect it is no use to ask for my money back.
A downloadable game for Windows
In 1999, Michael Wilson (founder of NO2 Games and more recently Ponywolf) built his first game with his college roommate, Ed Brown (of Popcap, Casual Labs and creator of the wonderful Paint it Back.) They called it Miniverse, an arcade-style miniature golf simulation featuring an isometric user perspective, 3D rendered scrolling play-fields, and an advanced (for its time) physics engine.
The conceit was that the planets of Miniverse have been terraformed into challenging courses. Imagining a universe of lush worlds lovingly adapted into the most challenging miniature golf courses ever.
It went on to sell hundreds of thousands of copies under various names (Minigolf Master, eGames Minigolf, Mini Golf 2) and was a staple of the compilation CD-ROMs that lined the isles of Frys, Circuit City and Walmart in the early 2000s.
Every now and again I get emails asking where to get a copy for nostalgia's sake and itch.io seems like the right place for it.
So, love it or not. Here's a working copy of Miniverse Minigolf.

Question: Is this the full, complete miniverse golf game?! At 99MB I would expect another partial game.
Yep... It's the whole thing. The graphics/music on the original CD-ROM were uncompressed, so it shrunk nicely.
Windows 7, after starting turned screen black and it stayed that way until I restarted computer. Ctrl+Alt+Del didn't help. It's probably something to do with resolution.
I would totally recommend downloading it before you donate anything to make sure it works with your setup. This game hasn't be re-compiled since 2004 :)
