Although I wouldn't recommend showing this game to your friends (or enemies for that matter), there are several multiplayer modes included if you feel so inclined. You can play tournament style with up to four players, and you can play through any of the game's different holes (even ones you haven't unlocked in the single-player mode yet). The multiplayer modes are just as basic as the single-player modes and are good if you absolutely must play this game with other people.
The sound in this game is also quite terrible. There are a handful of looping tracks that accompany each hole, and if you progress far enough in the game, then you will be able to unlock all the music tracks and can use whichever one you want on the different holes. However, they are all dreadful; trust me, the mute button is your best friend when trying to tackle this game.
King of Clubs Mini Golf embodies every negative aspect of third party games created for the Wii. It has poor motion controls, bad graphics, and almost no redeeming qualities. It borders on total unplayability, and the best advice for those who want to play golf on the Wii is to stick with WiiSports.
Sure, you may have played these games a million times, but honestly, putting this game in your system will only make you pine for these titles. There was a lot of potential in this game, and I could have seriously dug the whole kitschy-feel. But unfortunately, this game is a real clunker that I can't recommend to anyone.
