NES Open Tournament Golf (also known as Mario Open Golf in Japan and Europe) is an NES game featuring Mario characters. As the name of the game implies, it is a golf game and was one of the first golfing games in the Mario series. In the American version of the game, the graphics and soundtrack has slightly changed. The Japanese version of the game features different playable courses and characters. Although the Japan Course and UK Course are also playable courses in North America version they do not contain the same holes. For example, hole 1 in the Australia Course is hole 9 in the US Course. The game does not take place in the Mushroom Kingdom and instead takes place on Earth, or the "real world". The levels are Japan, Australia, France, the United Kingdom and the United States.

A version of this game was made for the Nintendo PlayChoice-10 in America, called Mario's Open Golf. This game has also been released on the Virtual Console of the Wii for 500 Wii Points.
