XC Golf (short for Cross-Country Golf) is a unique game mode to Golf Adventure where the player starts off in a set area of a 3, 6, or 9-hole course and is free to take on the holes in any order they desire. However, the player only has a set number of strokes to finish all holes.

Strategic positioning is essential to clearing XC Golf. You can do the holes in any order you want, but that doesn't mean you should go for the nearest hole all the time. Before you start hitting your shots, plan which holes to prioritize and the path you will take to make those holes.
A recommended path for clearing the XC Golf qualifiers (9-hole course)
Ridgerock Lake is a multi-layered course with many environmental hazards, so it's recommended to go through the course in one direction, in order to prevent going back and forth between places and wasting strokes.
Similarly, it's better to go from the top to bottom layers in certain areas, as it's challenging to get a ball onto a higher layer. You wouldn't want to go up a layer, go down, then go back up again, as that would be a waste of strokes.
Tornadoes are used to go up a layer. Hit your ball at a tornado for it to be carried to the higher layer. Always utilize tornadoes to go up layers. Even if it seems like you can hit the ball up a layer without use of a tornado, you still run the risk of your ball ricocheting off to an even worse position.
The Shot Gauge and Top View features are useful when lining up shots towards a hole, but they're less useful when trying to reposition yourself closer to a tornado. You're going to need reposition yourself in respect to tornadoes a lot in XC Golf, so in these instances, use the Range Finder.
The Range Finder helps you determine the exact distance between yourself and the target on your reticle, so you can use this to measure distance between where you are and where you want to position yourself next, before setting the power of your next shot.
In Ridgerock Lake's XC Golf, you can usually hit a straight line from one hole to another. However, there's almost always a tree hazard blocking these kinds of shots. The solution literally around this is getting skilled at curved shots. This isn't recommended for beginners, however, as messing up the curve shot could lead to your ball ending up in deep roughs.
The Brolders are an obstacle found in Ridgerock Lake during XC Golf. If you come into contact with them, you will get knocked down. They're mostly easy to avoid though, as they travel in easily observable, set paths. However, if your ball lands on their path, you will have to Special Dash through them in order to destroy them.
There are a lot of coins to be found on the course during XC Golf, so it's a good place to gather up as much coins as you can. There is a 2-min timer for you to reach your ball after your previous shot, but that is a relatively large amount of time for simply just reaching your ball.
