Golf Adventure[edit]

The town in front of the entrance to Bowser Highlands

In Golf Adventure mode, there is a town located in front of the Bowser Highlands course that is inhabited by Goombas, Koopa Troopas, Buzzy Beetles, Bony Beetles, Dry Bones, Sledge Bros., and Spinies. In the center of the town, there is a large brazier. There is a shop to the left of the brazier, where the player can buy Heat Attire, Snow Shoes, and clubs, and a cafe to the right of the brazier, where the player can talk to some of the inhabitants.

When the Mii player first arrives, the town is frozen over with all the inhabitants being frozen under ice. A Goomba runs up to the Mii asking them to help save Bowser, and tells them to light the brazier in the center of the town. The Mii then uses the Power of Flame to light the brazier and melt the ice surrounding the town. The Goomba thanks them for this, and says that it was partially their idea as well. The Mii then goes to the course, but is interrupted by Wario and Waluigi who tell the Mii that they will help them find the treasure (which the Legendary Hero says may be a trove of gold coins buried in the mountain).

The Mii, Wario, and Waluigi then play Best-Ball on the first 9 holes in order to reach the center. The first 3 holes have been snowed over, and snow enemies have dotted the holes. The trio reach the Magma Chamber after hole 3, after which the holes behave how they would under normal play. When the trio reaches hole 6, a snow wall prevents them from moving on. The Mii uses the Power of Flame to melt the snow, allowing the trio to move on. Holes 7 and 8 are also covered in snow, and after hole 8 Wario and Waluigi decide it would be faster for the Mii to go alone. The Legendary Hero gives Wario a bit of Lightning Power to help them ward off the creatures inhabiting the course.

After beating hole 9, the Mii character spots a Gold Pipe which is blocked off by 2 Mr. Blizzards and a Snow Pokey. Mario launches a Super Star Strike at the creatures, defeating them. Toad then informs the Mii that they asked Mario to help them out. Mario and the Mii then reach the peak, where the fight with the Snow King begins.
