Speed is the name of the game when it comes to the different courses of Balmy Dunes. In the Practice Round of Speed Golf, you need to complete all three holes before running out of water. It is recommended to wear the Cool Attire in this course to slow down water loss.

Timed Course.jpg
Unlike the first two practice courses, the Back 9 no longer uses water level to speed up the game but a time limit. Each set of three holes must be completed in a certain amount of time.

Hole 10 Back 9.jpg
The terrain of the Back 9 is incredibly uneven and treacherous, so it is best to use clubs that are accurate, but also give a decent amount of distance. Because of the many twist and turns of the course, far-reaching clubs may throw your ball off course.

The Qualifying Round covers all 18 holes of the course, so many of the tips from previous courses still apply. Similar to the Back 9, each set of holes must be completed in a certain amount of time. Though you will be competing against two other characters, their points do not influence yours.

Super Dash Balmy Dunes.jpg
They may however hinder your progress through the course by knocking you or ball off course with their Special Shots and Dashes. Because of this, we recommend distancing yourself and your ball from the other two characters.

How to Clear the Practice Area Challenges

Balmy Dunes Challenges.jpg

The Practice Area Challenges in Balmy Dunes are similar to the previous set of challenges. Before you can attempt the challenges in Balmy Dunes, you first need to complete the challenges in Ridgerock Lake.

How to Clear the Tee-Shot Challenge

Balmy Dunes Tee Shot.jpg

To get 10 points for each shot in this challenge, set your power to around 170 and add a super backspin to all your shots. When the target is at the left side of the course, adjust your aim to a few yards right of the target. If the target is at the right side of the course, move your aim a few yards to the left.

How to Clear the Approach-Shot Challenge

Balmy Dunes Apporach First Shot.jpg

For the first three strokes, go to the overhead view and aim slightly to the right until your path line is at the edge of the dark blue circle. Set your power slightly below the marked flag on your gauge and add a backspin to your shot.

Balmy Dunes Approach 9 Points.jpg

The next three strokes are the most difficult shots to hit, so we recommend settling for 8 or 9 points during this part of the challenge and compensating with your other shots. To get as close enough to the hole, aim slightly left until the path line is at the edge of the dark blue circle. Set your power to the marked flag on your gauge and add a backspin.

Balmy Dunes Approach Aim.jpg

For the final three strokes, aim to the right until the path line is at the edge of the dark blue circle. Set your power slightly below the marked flag on your gauge and add a backspin to the ball.

How to Clear the Putting Challenge

Balmy Dunes Putting First Shot.jpg

For the first three strokes, go to the overhead view and aim slightly right until the path line is at the inner edge of the dark blue circle, and set your power slightly above the marked flag on your gauge.

Balmy Dunes Putting Aim.jpg

The next three strokes require incredibly precise aim to get 10 points, so we recommend settling for 8 or 9 points during this part of the challenge and compensating with your other shots. The best way to get close to the hole is to aim a few feet right of the circle and set your power to around 70.

Balmy Dunes Putting Third Shot.jpg

For the final three strokes, aim slightly left until the path line is exactly at the edge of the orange circle and set your power to slightly above 100.
