If you choose to Find a Room, you'll be brought to a lobby that will display all available rooms on the same wireless network. You can choose which room you'd like to join or refresh the lobby if the room you're looking for isn't popping up yet. Once you've entered a room, you can wait for the host to start the match.

Standard Golf

The Standard Golf mode allows you to play a recreation of the classic game of golf with up to three other players via local or online play. You can choose among six unlockable courses to traverse with 3, 6, 9, or 18 holes to play. You and your friends can also take turns with each stroke or play all at once for a more exciting experience.

Speed Golf

Speed Golf is a reimaging of classic golf mechanics where you and up to three of your friends race through the course to be the first to sink your ball into the hole. All players will begin the course at the same time and can use dashes and special skills to interrupt and get ahead of other players in the race. You can choose to crown the winner based either on highest score or best time.

Battle Golf

The mechanics of Battle Golf are similar to that of Speed Golf but with a twist. All nine holes will be open at the start to all players but will be closed once a player's ball sinks into it. You only win after sinking your ball into three holes. To make things more complicated, obstacles like Chain Chomps and Thwomps are also added around the course.
