Shifting Sands is the third course in Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour. It is a desert course that features a combination of expansive sand seas and rocky valleys. Ruins and cacti are found throughout the course, and its fairways are often bumpy or segmented. It has the fewest water hazards of any course in the game, only having one on the second hole in the form of an oasis. The course's name may be a reference to the "Shifting Sands", the enchanted deserts in L. Frank Baum's Oz books. It also bears superficial resemblance to Shifting Sand Land from Super Mario 64, being a desert area with ruins and Kleptos.
