Tournament Mushroom Tourney

The Mushroom Course is a golf course in Mario Golf: Advance Tour. It is unlocked by completing the other four courses' tournaments and is the last tourney to go through for both singles and doubles. Once the player has every trophy from Marion to Links, Princess Peach will send the player an invitation to compete in the Mushroom Kingdom. A glowing sphere will appear in the center of the Marion Clubhouse's foyer. Upon interacting with the sphere, Toad jumps out, asking the player if they wish to proceed to the Mushroom Kingdom. Princess Peach then begins the Mushroom Tourney. Mario goes into the pipe first, and everyone follows Mario to play the tourney. The player can decline the start of the tourney and explore around the castle or go back to the Marion Clubhouse, though there are no side games in the Mushroom Kingdom. Completing the Mushroom Tourney unlocks Star Tournaments and tourney greens.

This course combines elements of Peach's Castle Grounds and Bowser Badlands from Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, also deriving its music from the former. Large mushrooms and floating Empty Blocks are found throughout the course as obstacles. Various Mario enemies appear here, including Piranha Plants, Bob-ombs, Pokeys, Thwomps, and Chain Chomps. Of these, Pokeys are the only ones that are not exclusive to this course; they also appear on the Star version of the Dunes Course. Proto Piranhas also make an appearance, though they are stationed out of bounds and do not affect gameplay. This is the only course to have Play Panels, which trigger hole-specific events whenever the ball stops on one. Some holes feature lava and goop as obstacles; landing the ball in either counts it out of bounds.

The Mushroom Course is not available in Go-Go Gates. It also has no Star variant, since it already features the kind of gimmicks that Star courses possess normally. Therefore, the only thing different about the course in Star Tournaments is the presence of tourney greens.

6 Hole 6 of the Mushroom Course from Mario Golf: Advance Tour The green from Hole 6 of the Mushroom Course from Mario Golf: Advance Tour 3 154 yards 164 yards Three pools filled with Piranha Plants are found on this hole. There is one by the tee boxes, one to the left of the fairway, and one south of the green. A large goop puddle lies ahead of the green and may catch shots that overshoot it.
7 Hole 7 of the Mushroom Course from Mario Golf: Advance Tour The green from Hole 7 of the Mushroom Course from Mario Golf: Advance Tour 4 406 yards 450 yards This hole's fairway is narrow and curves slightly to the left. A row of four Bob-ombs with rocks behind them are in front of the green. Each individual Bob-omb is tied to a Play Panel detonator. Three bunkers surround the green.
8 Hole 8 of the Mushroom Course from Mario Golf: Advance Tour The green from Hole 8 of the Mushroom Course from Mario Golf: Advance Tour 5 520 yards 552 yards This hole takes place in a volcanic area with a narrow, winding fairway.

There is a Thwomp floating between two Pokeys on the left and another between two beanstalks on the right. The land beneath the Thwomp on the left is risen by default, while the land beneath the right Thwomp is lowered. Landing on the Play Panels causes the Thwomp above the risen area to slam downward, alternating the height of the two platforms.

12 Hole 12 of the Mushroom Course from Mario Golf: Advance Tour The green from Hole 12 of the Mushroom Course from Mario Golf: Advance Tour 4 417 yards 428 yards This hole features a dogleg right fairway covered with Play Panels and a lone Chain Chomp near the far end. The green is on a small island on the right side of a lava pool. If the ball stops on one of the Play Panels, it will make the volcano in the top right corner erupt and move the island to the center of the lava pool. Landing on another Play Panel will erupt the other volcano and move the island to the left. If more Play Panels are landed on afterward, nothing will happen.
13 Hole 13 of the Mushroom Course from Mario Golf: Advance Tour The green from Hole 13 of the Mushroom Course from Mario Golf: Advance Tour 4 381 yards 400 yards Five circular pools of water appear on this hole, with two of them having Piranha Plants coming out of them.

Three small puddles of goop are found near the green.
14 Hole 14 of the Mushroom Course from Mario Golf: Advance Tour The green from Hole 14 of the Mushroom Course from Mario Golf: Advance Tour 5 527 yards 566 yards A large body of water splits the hole into two segments, with the first segment going north and the second going east. Many bunkers are found throughout, including three which surround the green. Pokeys and beanstalks line the sides of the fairway, which has four mushrooms and two Play Panels near the end of the first segment. A Thwomp hovers over a mound near the water's edge next to a Pokey. Landing on one of the Play Panels causes the Thwomp to slam into the mound, lowering it and causing a small island with a mushroom, fairway, and two bunkers to surface nearby. Landing on Play Panels after this does nothing.
15 Hole 15 of the Mushroom Course from Mario Golf: Advance Tour The green from Hole 15 of the Mushroom Course from Mario Golf: Advance Tour 3 181 yards 196 yards The green is on the edge of an island in the middle of a lava pool. There is a Chain Chomp near the tee boxes and two near the green.

There are two Play Panels near a mound with a Thwomp and two Pokeys. Landing on the Play Panels makes the Thwomp to slam the mound down, causing the small island with the green on it to rise upward, revealing it to be larger. Any subsequent landing on Play Panels does nothing.
17 Hole 17 of the Mushroom Course from Mario Golf: Advance Tour The green from Hole 17 of the Mushroom Course from Mario Golf: Advance Tour 4 400 yards 417 yards This hole returns to the sky setting of the first two holes. Mushrooms and bunkers shaped like stars and crescent moons dot the fairway. The green is on a star-shaped island which moves to the right upon landing on one of the three Play Panels. The island will only move once.
18 Hole 18 of the Mushroom Course from Mario Golf: Advance Tour The green from Hole 18 of the Mushroom Course from Mario Golf: Advance Tour 5 517 yards 556 yards This hole consists of seven floating islands, though only four of them have fairway to land on: the starting island in the south, the winding western island, the star-shaped island near the center with small patches of fairway on its points, and the small northwestern island that contains the green. Landing on one of the three Play Panels at the end of the starting island causes the star-shaped island to move closer to the starting island and western island. Landing on them after this happens does nothing.
