How to Clear this Course

Start the Final Course.jpg

Before battling the Snow King you first have to complete the First 9 Holes of Bowser Highlands. Unlike the regular course played in other game modes, many of the holes in Bowser Highlands will be snowed over.

Companions.jpg

Wario and Waluigi will also join you during the first 8 holes of the course. To complete the course, at least one member of your party needs to get a Par or better in each hole. There is also a time limit of one minute for each stroke.

Wario Par.jpg

It is best not to disrupt the progress of your companions through the course as they can be used as a backup, in case you are unable to make a Par. They also help take out some of the obstacles of the course. Whether or not your companions get a Par seems to be random regardless of the hole.

Getting Past the First 3 Holes

Hole 1 Overview.jpg

The first three holes of the course will mostly be covered in snow, and failing the course during this portion will force you to restart from Hole 1. Most holes in this part of the course are narrow and straight, so we advise using a long-distance club.

Dashing through the Snow.jpg

During the first three holes, it is advised to move swiftly through the course to avoid the snowballs launch by the Mr. Blizzards, but also careful not to run into the Bob-ombs on the ground. It is not recommended to try launching any Bob-ombs as it will only subtract from your time.

Cutting through the Rough.jpg

In Hole 3, you can bypass much of the course by shooting your ball over the rough. Running through these areas also allows you to avoid many of the obstacles.

Getting Past Holes 4 to 6

Hole 4 Overview.jpg

The next three holes of the course are mostly volcanic with large lava pools surrounding the fairway. Failing this part of the course will not lose all your progress in the entire course, but will return you to Hole 4.

Going over the Lava Pool.jpg

For this course, we recommend using backspins and accurate clubs to prevent your ball from falling in the lava. If your Mii character has a high enough power stat, you can attempt to shoot your ball over the lava pools. Otherwise, it is best to follow the path of the fairway.

Getting Past Holes 7 and 8

Hole 8.jpg

Holes 7 and 8 will be a mix of snowy and volcanic environments. You will have to look out for both the difficult obstacles of the first three holes and large lava pools. If you fail this part of the course, you will be brought back to Hole 7.

Edge of the Lava Pool.jpg

Because of the unique terrain of this course, it is best to steer clear of the edge of cliffs and lava pools. If your ball is hit by one of the Mr. Blizzard's snowballs, it could cause it to fall over the edge.

The Final Hole

Final Hole.jpg

Before entering the final hole, Wario and Waluigi will leave you to finish the course alone. This means that you lose them as a lifeline and must get a Par or better to finish the course. Failing the final hole brings you back to the start of the hole.

For this course, we recommend using a long-distance club to launch your ball to the right island at the start of the course then to the left island before reaching the green. This way, you can avoid many of the obstacles and make it to the green in as few as three strokes.
