Abstract

We propose a novel simulation method for modeling the game of golf using SystemC, a system description language that allows modeling of a concurrent system's behavior. Utilizing the proposed simulator, we compare different outing formats of golf, namely, regular and shotgun, in terms of playing time. Our simulation results reveal that the shotgun format can take longer than the regular format if the number of groups in a golf course exceeds 33 for the scenario we tested, confirming the belief that the shotgun format can take longer than the regular format. We also justify our simulation by comparing the simulation and analytical results.
