Fore! Mario Golf: Super Rush Preview

Mario Golf: Super Rush is out for the Nintendo Switch! I’ve been playing it over weekend and here are my first thoughts on the game. Thank you to Nintendo Canada for providing a review code to us!


Mario Golf: Super Rush is, so far, everything you’d expect a Mario Golf game to be: fun, full of humor, and video game golfing at its best. The graphics are absolutely wonderful too.

The normal golfing mode is back and if thats all you want to play, so be it but you’ll be missing out on some cool new modes if you don’t check out the rest of the game.

Here’s a look at Mario Golf’s newest modes:



In Speed Golf, you play Golf at the same time as your opponent(s). You’ll hit the ball, race to where ever it landed, hit it again, and so on. Speed Golf is like regular Golf expect there’s lots of running and some extra things like coins on the field.

Think of this mode like Mario Golf meets Mario Kart!

All of the regular characters are available to play and so is your Mii. That said, I like using the Mario characters in this mode a lot because each one of them has a super unique speed boost. These powerful moves will help you get to your goal faster. They’re fun to watch too!

Speed Golf is my favorite mode at the moment, but the other new modes are well worth checking out too.



This mode is, in a word, insane. Battle Golf is INSANE.

Why is it insane?

Basically you and other players (computer or otherwise) golf at the same time like Speed Golf expect this time its in an arena instead of a regular golf course and you have to hit the ball into three holes as quickly as possible.

And while you are doing that, bombs and other obstacles will get in your way.

Like I said, this mode is insane. I’m terrible at it. Still I think its pretty cool.

This mode would be best compared to Mario Kart’s Battle Mode! Its the last mode though that will help you unlock more regular golf courses and make your Mii a better golfer.



Are you looking for a golf rpg?

Then you’ve come to the right mode.

In Golf Adventure, you play as a Mii who is just starting out in their career as a golfer. You’ll join a cast of Mario characters: Toadette, Boo, and Chuck in their rise to golfing fame. Birdo is the house mother at the place you are staying! Yes its as wonderful as it sounds.

Your Mii can wander around a golfing resort, talk to characters, buy stuff in the Clubhouse, practice golfing, and of course take part in golfing tournaments!

And best of all: your Mii will level up no matter how good or bad you’re doing. So you’ll be able to improve how good of a golfer your Mii is. I hope you like Speed Golf because it is very important in Golf Adventure. At least it has been so far!

As mentioned before, this mode will help you unlock new golf courses for both regular golf and speed golf.

This mode could be compared to Mario Kart’s rpg mode. Just like that. Oh wait. Never mind.

I’m enjoying Golf Adventure a lot. Super Rush, overall, is a very good Mario Golf game.


Mario Golf: Super Rush is a ton of fun so far. The new modes, especially Speed Golf, are just wonderful. I’m having a blast with this game!

I will try to have a review of Mario Golf: Super Rush as soon as possible. Please stay tuned to!
