No Good Gofers Pinball Machine by Williams

No Good Gofers is a Williams pinball machine released in December of 1997. It was Pat Lawlor’s final design for Williams before their eventual closing in 1999.

The game revolves around Buzz and Bud, two gophers who are wreaking havoc on any and all golfers playing on their “turf”. The gofers “pop-up” during gameplay to taunt the player, as well as provide entry ways to locks.


3 Flippers, 3 Pop bumpers, 2 Slingshots, 3 Ramps, 2 Spinning targets, 1 Captive ball, Left outlane kickback, Dual left inlanes. A spinning disc doubles as a prize wheel.

No Good Gofers also has a “slam-ramp” feature which if used correctly, will award the player a “hole-in-one” shot. Performing this is tricky, as the ball must travel off the ramp, into the air, and into a very small hole located on the game’s upper playfield. The “hole-in-one” shot is often called one of the greatest shots in pinball history.
