It has large quantities of lava and features many fortresses, volcanoes, Bullet Bills and a Ghost House. Also, Thwomps, Boos and giant non-moving Bob-ombs further hinder a clear shot on the course. Some holes have Chain Chomps at the bottom of canyons and ditches; if a golf ball lands near one it will chase the ball and it will count as an O.B. There is a lot of wind in this stage. If passed through, a Boo can distort the trajectory of the ball. A Bowser Statue, Bowser Jr. statue and a pirate ship can be seen here.
If the ball stops underneath a Thwomp, or in front of a Whomp, it can crash down on the ball, driving it into the ground and increasing the lie factor of the ball, which makes it harder to hit. It is possible for the ball to land on top of a Thwomp, making the surface the player stands on be displayed as "Thwomp." However, if the ball somehow manages to land on top of a Whomp, or inside its mouth or either one of its eyes, the Whomp will count as an out of bounds. If the ball flies into a Piranha Plant's pipe or in the Piranha Plant's mouth, it can spit out the ball, causing it to land anywhere from a bunker, to a point out of bounds. If the ball lands just on top of a Piranha Plant's head, it will count as a "Heavy Rough" out of bounds.
