III.Story mode

Getting Started

To get started,you have to pick whether you want to be a girl or a boy.Then you 
pick your character's name.Afterwards,the game will start and you will hear lots of 
talking.You will eventually get to move.Go outside and explore where you are.Then 
head to the Marion Club.

*Marion Club*

This is where your clubhouse is.This is also the beginner's courses.You can choose 
between practicing the holes,playing in a tournament,or practicing 
techniques.Choose one.

Tournament

This is just a little tournament where you have to get the best score.If you do,you 
will get a gold cup,become able to challenge Joe,and are eligible for the next 
cup.Beat Joe so you can now play as him in the other modes.Afterwards,go out and 
about and head to the next place,Palms Club.

*Palms Club*

This place is a little more difficult than the Marion.You can't go to this 
clubhouse though.You can choose to practice,play tournament,or practice 
techniques.If you don't play well with water,I suggest you practice these 
holes,since most of them have water and sand.Afterwards,head to tournament.

Tournament

This one is a bit harder,but still easy to win.When you get the gold cup,you can 
then challenge Sherry and unlock her in other play by beating her.Anyways,now you 
qualify for the Dunes Cup.

*Dunes Cup*

This place is different.Its mostly bunkers and waste areas.I suggest going to 
practice before entering the tournament.As usual,you can't go to the 
clubhouse.After practicing the holes,you can head to the tournament.

Tournament

This one is kinda hard.Almost all around is bunkers and waste areas.Waste areas are 
worse because they take longer to get out of.This place is hard,but winnable.After 
winning,you can challenge Azalea,beat her,and unlock her.You qualify for the Links 
Tourney,so head there.

*Links Tourney*

This place is for the really good players.I absolutely suggest practicing here.Its 
hard.This place has a mix of water,bunkers,and waste areas,with a ton of trees to 
get your ball stuck.Head to tournament.

Tournament

This place is really hard.Its not impossible,just really frustrating.Watch where 
you hit the ball because one shot can ruin your chances of winning.After 
winning,you can challenge your teacher Kid.Even though he lost all golfing 
abilities,you can challenge him.Weird.Well,now you're lucky because you qualify for 
the Mushroom Tournament.Go to the clubhouse and in the middle of the room there 
should be a yellow ball.Go up to it and Toad should pop out and take you to Peach's 
castle.

*Mushroom Tournament*

Yes,its true.You got here.You get to see all the Mario characters arguing and 
sayign stupid stuff.Well,this place is different.There is no place to practice,so 
you're on your own.

Tournament

This place will test every ability yuo possess.In addition to the usual things,it 
also has warp pipes,which move your ball,play panels,which alter the course,and 
chain chomps,which give you out of bounds and trouble.There are also fast 
zones.This place is almost impossible.It is winnable,but the biggest pain in the 
butt.After you win,you can watch the credits and enjoy life.

IV.Quick Play

This is a break from story mode.You can play against a computer player and just 
have fun.You can be any character you have unlocked here.Its very fun.

V.Multi-player Game

Here is where you can link up with your friends and have a good old time playing 
and crushing your friends.But you can also play by yourself as multiple 
characters.Its fun and a good way to level up you and your partner for story mode.



Well,that's about it.I hope you enjoyed my walkthrough and I hope you enjoy this 
game.Thanks for reading this.
