The Castle Tournament gold trophy.

Mario Golf: World Tour features a variety of online tournaments for players to take part in. They can either be made by Nintendo with golf gear as participation prizes (barring DLC tournaments), by other players from across the world in the form of Private Tournaments, or made by Callaway Golf in partnership with Nintendo.

After playing through a tournament, the player must upload their score in order for it to be ranked (by score then order of submission) in the leader-board which can be viewed at any time during the tournament period. Tournaments can be played an infinite amount of times until the deadline has been met, allowing for continuous improvement of a player's score. After a deadline ends for a tournament, the final standings can be viewed in an ending ceremony, and both a trophy (gold for the top 10%, silver for the top 20-30%, and bronze for the top 40-60%) and coins are received depending on how the player places. Gaining a trophy in certain regional or worldwide tournaments will allow the player to enter one of four yearly major worldwide tournaments (such as the Castle Tournament or Star Open) that reward the player with a more impressive trophy and a larger coin payout.

Trophies earned from Regional and World Tournaments in the Castle Club appear on the shelf at the back of the trophy hall (a maximum of ten normal trophies can be on display at any one time), and trophies from major tournaments appear in the glass display towards the center of the room. Gold trophies appear beside the screen in the middle, silver ones are seen farther from it, and bronze ones are placed at the far sides of the hall. World tournament trophies appear towards the middle and those for regional tournaments are placed at the sides. The higher the end ranking the player got in a tournament, the closer to the middle its trophy is placed.

Trivia[edit]

  • The 18-hole courses are mirrored in regional and Mario Open tournaments, and so are the nine-hole courses in fixed-character tournaments.
  • No matter how many times a tournament is retried, each hole will have a specific wind speed and direction, pin location, and weather condition.
  • A regional tournament type known as the Expert Tournament makes use of Tournament Greens, narrow fairways, and no flight path.
  • In fixed-character tournaments, the characters to be played as are not allowed to have a star rank.
