Golf is one of the five sports available for play in Wii Sports, New Wii Sports, Wah Sports, Wii Sports 3, Wii Sports Club, and New Wii Sports Club, and one of the 12 in Wii Sports Resort, New Wii Sports Resort, and Wah Sports Resort. The objective of the game is to hit the golf ball into the hole in a few shots as possible. If the ball goes out of bounds or worse, into the water hazard, the player takes a one-shot penalty and will take his next shot in the same position. If the player has taken the number of strokes for par times 3 on a hole, the player will be forced to give up for a +6, +8 or +10.

In all games, two strokes will be used instead of one when the ball goes out of bounds or into a water hazard.

Wind Meter

The wind meter tells you how much the wind is blowing. In a 9-hole game, the wind blows at a completely random number. The wind depends on the difficulty on a 3-hole game, like in beginner, the wind blows 0-10 miles per hour. Here are some other wind blowing difficulties:

*Intermediate = 10-20 mph*

*Expert = 20-30 mph*

The wind does not blow on any odd numbers unless the wind meter is measuring the wind in m/s.

Theoretical Score

The theoretical score is the best score possible because it depends on the 9-hole courses how many highest ranks there are in every 9 holes. These are the current theoretical scores in each Wii Sports game:

Wii Sports = -22

Wii Sports Resort = -23

Wii Sports Club = -21

Only Rebecca has gotten these scores in Golf so far.


There are three different training modes for this sport on each games:

  • Wii Sports: Putting, Hitting the Green, Target Practice
  • Wii Sports Club: Pro Putter, Chip-In Bingo, Driver Challenge

Wii Sports


A player needs to "Putt" (pot) a [(sport)|Golf] ball that has been placed near the hole on the green in one shot to qualify. If the player makes 5 mistakes, the game is over. There are 10 holes to complete.

  • Bronze medal = 5
  • Silver medal = 7
  • Gold medal = 10
  • Platinum medal = 10 (with all 5 balls intact)

Hitting the Green

A player must hit the golf ball that has been placed near the green as near to the hole as he can. The total distance from the ball to the hole will be added. The player is aiming to get the lowest score possible. If the player fails to get the ball on the green, they are given 100 ft (30.48 m) regardless of where the ball lands. There are 10 holes to complete.

The Medal Chart:

  • Bronze medal = 492 ft/150m
  • Silver medal = 246 ft/75m
  • Gold medal = 164 ft/50m
  • Platinum medal = 66 ft/20m

Target Practice

In Target Practice there are two targets. One situated at the other side of a lake and one place in the center of the lake. The player attempts to hit the ball as near to the center of the targets as possible. The nearer the center the more points will be awarded. There are 10 balls to shoot in the targets.

Below is the chart:

  • Bronze medal = 200
  • Silver medal = 400
  • Gold medal = 650
  • Platinum medal = 800

Wii Sports Club

Pro Putter

In Pro Putter, the player should putt all of the balls into 10 holes.

Chip-In Bingo

Chip-In Bingo is being played similarly to Bingo games, only being played with golf balls instead of circling the numbers. If a set of Bingo is completed, the game will just continue until the player runs out of the balls.

The minimum requirement to get the platinum medal is 250 points.

Driver Challenge

In Driver Challenge, the objective is to hit the ball into the target, passing through the gate. When the ball gets through the gate, the score will multiply. The gate size can be altered. However, the wider the size, the multiply number is smaller. Also, depending where the ball lands, it will also affect your score.


  • In the Wii Sports Resort Edition, there is an unlockable stage for three holes: the Special course.
  • The nine holes in Wii Sports Golf are 3D versions of the holes in the NES game Golf. 
  • When the screen turns black after the warning screen for a game of golf, hold "2" and the power meter, map, and wind speed will no longer appear.
  • In Hole 5 in Wii Sports (or Classic Hole 5 for Wii Sports Resort) there is a hidden castle sitting amongst some trees. This doesn't appear in Wii Sports Club.
  • In Wii Sports, if the ball goes Out Of Bounds or in the Water Hazard there will be people shouting "AWW!!!" and a buzzer will go off.
  • In Wii Sports Resort, when going Out Of Bounds, only women will shout "AWW!!!" and the buzzer will go off at the same time. When the ball goes in the Water Hazard in the Wii Sports Resort, women will shout "AWW!!!" before the buzzer goes off.
  • The same ladies will be heard when the ball falls in the Water Hazard in Wii Sports Club. The ladies will not be heard shouting when you go Out Of Bounds in Wii Sports Club.
