An Albatross (also called Double Eagle) is the most difficult score a player can achieve in the Mario Golf series. A player can only get an Albatross on a Par five hole, as an Albatross is three below Par. The only score as difficult as an Albatross is a Hole-in-One, which is usually only possible on Par three holes. Albatrosses are extremely difficult to perform, and usually require a character that can shoot the ball a great distance to perform them (such as Petey Piranha or Metal Mario). Albatrosses are usually done by means of Chip Ins, though on some Par 5 holes, depending on wind conditions, it is possible to land on the Green from the tee box, and then by sinking the Albatross Putt to get an Albatross without a Chip In.

In the Club Slots mode in Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, an Albatross gives the player 5 points. When played by Point Play rules in Mario Golf: World Tour, Albatrosses are worth 8 points, which are worth the same as a Hole-in-One.

In the Nintendo 64 version of Mario Golf, Albatrosses are rainbow-colored on the Score Card, while they a golden color in the Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour Score Card.

In Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour and Mario Golf: Advance Tour, the color of Albatross Best Badges are red.

Trivia[edit]

A Hole-in-One on a Par 5 hole in Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour. It is actually a Condor in this instance as it reduces the player's score by 4.
  • In Mario Golf for Nintendo 64, if the player gets on the Green in one stroke on a Par 5 hole, they will receive the Albatross Putt message in rainbow colors when they start their putt.
  • The US version of Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour has errors in identifying Hole-in-Ones: getting them on a Par 4 or Par 5 hole will display it as an Albatross, even though Hole-in-Ones on Par 5 holes reduce the player's score by 4 (like a Condor would) and not 3. Results like these are put under "Albatross" in the Highlights section.
    • Hole-in-Ones done on Par 4 or Par 5 holes in the European and the Japanese versions of the game register correctly. Results like these are put under "Hole-in-One" in the Highlights section.
  • If players do a glitch on Bowser Badlands where they get Negative Strokes as a result of using mulligans after shooting from the Thwomp, it is possible to get a score better than -4, which results in the announcer saying "Complete!" and the hole played being the last hole of the match.
    • The Double Bogey music plays if the player gets a "Complete!" as a result of doing the glitch.
