Mario Golf is a game for the Game Boy Color that provides the capability to interact with its Nintendo 64 counterpart. It was released four months after the Nintendo 64 version.


Though this game has the exact same name as its 64-bit predecessor, it has many variations. Camelot made a normal mode of golfing, similar to that of the Nintendo 64 version, in which the player chooses one of four characters to conquer the challenges of the golf world. However, the developer also included a new, more-involved mode of gameplay.

This new mode of gameplay had traits similar to that of a Role Playing Game. The player was granted the ability to control his or her character more freely. This game mode allowed much character interaction and environmental exploration, making this game have a slightly more detailed story than those in the rest of the series. The player could also Level Up, allowing characters to be more successful at golfing.

New Features[edit]

Mario Golf for the Game Boy Color has the ability to link with Mario Golf for the Nintendo 64. With the use of the Transfer Pak, the player can transfer data from one version of Mario Golf to the other. By doing so, the player can play as characters specifically in the Nintendo 64 installment on his or her Game Boy Color installment of Mario Golf.

The game also features a multi-player mode, allowing separate players to interact in one game. It also features a special free-play mode for players interested in the golfing portion of the game; this gaming mode has no effect on the main quest.

  • In the game, three 1-Up Mushrooms can be found scattered around the map which reward the player with a level up.
  • Similarly, the four main characters of the game can be found hidden in various areas (note: players can't find the character the player uses.)
  • By holding select while choosing a character the player can play left-handed. This does not include the four main characters (Azalea, Joe, Kid, and Sherry.)
  • This game, along with Mario Tennis on the Nintendo 64 and the Game Boy Color, can no longer be transferred on the Virtual Console release because the Nintendo 3DS is not compatible with the Nintendo 64 / Game Boy Color Transfer Pak.
