Perfect power shot bonus:
When a power shot is made and the ball is hit perfectly, a bonus animation
such as a fireball (with a 1D club) or rainbow (with a 4W club) will appear.
Additionally, your golfer will not lose a power shot.
For a spinning fireball, use Mario to get a perfect power shot. For thunder,
use Bowser, get a perfect power shot -- you will hear a big boom. For
lightning, use Wario to get a perfect power shot.
1W rainbow shot:
Usually a 4W club with power is needed to get a rainbow. However, it is
possible to get a rainbow shot when playing as Yoshi with a 1W club with
power on it.
Shoot while standing sideways:
Aim towards the big hills on hole 11 on Toad Highland. Your ball will land
on the hill, close to the top. When you go to shoot again, your golfer will
be standing almost completely sideways.
All clubs playable with one controller:
This trick can be used to get all the clubs playable with one controller
(playing two to four players on a single controller). Simply highlight
however many players as desired. You can select characters for up to four
players with one controller, and may even control them in a game.
Land swimming fish:
If you hit your ball into the water a fish will jump. However, if you hit
your ball in the water close enough to land, the fish will jump out of the
water into land and disappear under the ground.
If you hit your ball towards a pond with just the right amount of spin, it
will skid across the water and about fifteen fish will jump at the same
time. Combine this trick with "Land swimming fish" to make a large number
of fish jump on land and disappear.
Floating golf ball:
At times, your ball will float when hit into the water. When this happens
no fish will jump.
Bets are automatic in stroke and match multi-player modes, but may be
de-activated or changed at the course select screen.
Right angle shot:
When right in front of a tree, hit the ball so it hits the side of the tree.
Make sure the shot will not just nick the tree. If done correctly, the ball
will bounce straight over.
Sky rocket shot:
When right in front of a little hill or tree, aim between the middle and
the top. If done correctly, the ball will sky rocket upwards.
