The Rough is a golfing term present in the Mario Golf series. It is the area of the courses where the grass is thicker than the fairway. There are three different types of Roughs seen on the courses; each one has a different effect on the player's landing and shot along with darker coloring as the effects of the rough intensifies.
Semi-Rough is a shallow type of rough that looks very similar to the Fairway. Though hardly visible, the Semi-Rough will slightly impair the player's shot out of the patch, making the ball not go as far or land in another place. It is usually the edge boundary between the fairway and the rough.
Rough is in almost every course. It looks like much thicker blades of grass (when compared to the fairway). Rough is usually located near the Fairway or near a Bunker. Rough will impair the player's shot out of the patch, making the ball land in a completely different place than where planned.
Heavy Rough (also known as Deep Rough) is the deepest and most dangerous type of Rough available on a course. It appears as very deep grass and is usually located near the boundaries of the course. Heavy Rough will severely impair the player's shot out of the thick patch; It usually takes a high shot to get the ball out, though it will only land a few yards away.
