To start the Great Trials, you need to progress through the Golf Adventure story until you reach Wildweather Woods. After completing a round of Speed Golf Training, you will travel to several locations around the map to learn about Lob Shots. Make sure to pay attention during these lessons as they are vital to completing some of the Trials.

After learning about Lob Shots, you will be prompted to visit the statue through a path in Wildweather Woods. As you make your way to the statue, you will meet Wario and Waluigi failing to complete the Trials. Once they leave, you can begin the Great Trials.

Stages of the Great Trials

Great Trial I - The Trial of Distance

The first Great Trial requires you to land 3 consecutive shots in the marked circles on the ground. If you miss even one of the three shots, you have to restart this part of the trial. Make sure to bring golf clubs with varied ranges that can line up with each of the circles.

For the farthest circle, we recommend using your golf club with the highest range, such as the Super Mushroom Driver or Cheep Cheep Driver.

Great Trial II - The Trial of Loft

During the Great Trial II, a large wall of water will rise from the stream ahead. The goal for this stage is to land three consecutive shots into the marked circles on the other side of the water wall.

Here, you can apply the lessons you have just learned on performing Lob Shots. Use the overhead view to measure the estimated amount of distance you need to cover to land in the circle. Remember to bring your Lob Wedge before going through the trials.

Great Trial III - The Trial of Timing

For the final trial, you must face off against the statue itself in a battle, and use your Duff Shots to deflect the lightning attacks used by the statue.

Evading Attacks Great Trial III.jpg

Upon starting the battle, purple marking will appear on the ground. Evade these purple marking to dodge the statue's attacks. After successfully dodging its first few attacks, dirt patches should pop up from the ground where the attack landed.

Stand on one of the patches of dirt and press the A Button to ready your shot. A duff gauge will appear near the bottom of the screen. Press the A Button again once the outer circle intersects with the inner circle to perform a Duff Shot and deflect the statue's attack.
