Tips and Tricks for Starting Out in Mario Golf: Super Rush

Beginner's Guide

Using the Shot Gauge

Shot Gauge.jpg

The shot gauge appears to the right of the screen while you are making your shots. Press the A Button to start the shot gauge and press it again to set the power. The higher you set the bar, the more power the ball will have.

Setting your shot's power too high will risk the gauge going into the Risk Zone, which decreases the accuracy of your shot. If you have set your shot in the Risk Zone, a small ! icon will appear on top of the gauge.

How to Run Fast Without Dashing

Dashing and Special Dashing can consume a lot of stamina. A smarter way of conserving your stamina while still moving around quickly is through Drafting. Follow along behind another dashing player and you will catch their speed, allowing you to dash without depleting any of your stamina.

Recommended Characters for Beginners

Below are the Mario Golf characters recommended for beginners due to their easy to control abilities and emphasis on Power or Speed, while maintaining relatively well-balanced stats. Remember that you can use any Mii Character you create for the Golf Adventure story mode in any other golf mode!
