Bowser Jr., Yoshi, and Luigi all using their Special Dashes

A Special Dash is a technique used in Mario Golf: Super Rush during Speed Golf and Battle Golf. It can be activated by pressing L Button as long as the player has enough stamina to use it, indicated by the meter being green. It allows players to tread ground faster than they do by simply running, while also ignoring the slowdown that normally comes from traversing unfavorable terrain such as rough or sand. Players can also run into other players to briefly stun them and steal their coins unless they are also in the middle of performing a Special Dash. Most enemies can also be taken out with Special Dashes. Each character has their own Special Dash with differing factors, such as some moving faster or lasting longer, or some being able to cross water and lava. Most Special Dashes consume five hearts of stamina; how much of the meter this depletes depends on the character's stamina stat. Koopa Troopa and Shy Guy are exceptions, since their Special Dashes have variable duration that can be controlled by the player.
