What Are Special Shots?

Special Shots are powerful shots that vary depending on the character, although some characters share the same Special Shot. By using one, you can get more distance or height on a shot, and even put your opponents at a disadvantage on their next stroke.

How to Use Special Shots

Charge the Special Shot Meter

The way the Special Shot Meter gets charged depends on the game mode you are playing. In Standard Golf, the meter is filled by completing holes, but in Speed Golf, you can collect coins to fill the meter as well.

Use Special Shots With the L Button

Once the Special Shot Meter is full, you can activate your Special Shot by hitting the L button before you set the power of your shot. Be aware that doing so will increase the maximum distance of your shot, so only start aiming once you have already activated it.

Bowser Jr.'s Special Shot has the same high arching shot as many other characters, including his father. However, Bowser Jr.'s shot creates a smokescreen effect that hides the flag, hole, and balls. Use this to land on the Green before your opponents so that they have difficulty aiming.

Shooting Star

Rosalina's Special Shot is similar to the other arching Special Shots in the game, but has the ability to turn other balls into Star Bits making it difficult for the opponent to aim their next shot.

Use this shot at a distance from the hole on stroke 1 so that your opponent will have difficulty aiming a high-powered shot towards the hole.

This Special Shot is shared between Peach, Waluigi, Pauline, Chargin' Chuck, and the Mii Character. It gives the shot more distance and can put your opponent's ball in a worse position for their next stroke.

One small difference for Pauline's Special Shot is that she sings a verse of Jump Up, Super Star! from Mario Odyssey before hitting the ball.

Makes the ball grow giant and blasts away balls on impact.

This Special Shot is shared between Mario, Daisy, Donkey Kong, Bowser, and Toad. One difference for Toad's Special Shot is that he uses a Mega Mushroom and makes the ball grow giant before hitting it, but the function is the same as the others.
