    When playing in tournament mode and you have a lot of bad hits or putts. You can restart the hole by doing the following. Save the game before you finish the hole. When you load your game again, you will start back at the tee for that hole. This also makes it easier to collect Birdie Badges and win tournaments.

      Super topspin: Press A, B.
      Super backspin: Press B, A.

  • Bow Wow Pits

    Bow Wow Pits count as an out of bounds, but are rocky and very bouncy. Therefore, your ball rarely stays in the pit. It will be counted as out of bounds only if it stays in the pit. You can also hit a Bow Wow with your ball to watch him awaken and turn bright red -- do not worry, you are safe as long as you do not land in its pit.

  • Best Badges

    When trying to collect Best Badges, you can only get one per hole.

  • Perfect shot

    Usually the only time you can get a perfect shot with any character with bad control rate is when you get the power indicator (on manual shot) directly on where the indicator started (it will say "Nice shot"). If you miss it by a notch, the ball will go wild with somebody such as Bowser (it will still say "Nice shot").

  • Approach practice

    When doing approach practice, make the arrows that indicate where the ball is going to land be about five to ten feet in front of the red circle. Then, when shooting, have the power indicator stop just before the sign that says where you should stop, and press A when the indicator comes back (to make the ball backspin more). You should get it in every time.

  • Coin values

    In coin mode, there are different types of coins. Red are worth 10, Blue are worth 20, small gold are worth 1, and big gold can range from 30 to 40.

  • Mushrooms

    When you hit a mushroom in Peach's Invitational, the ball will bounce high into the air.

  • Warp pipes

    If you hit your ball into a warp pipe, it will appear from another warp pipe. This only works with warp pipes that you cannot see through the other side. However, if you hit it into the pipe it came out of, it will go back to where you hit it the first time.

  • Custom ball

    When putting, notice that each character has their name and a logo on their ball.

  • Cast appearance

    When you finish the game in tournament mode, even if you do not have any of the secret characters, the game will show a cast of all of the characters including the secret ones.
