    AstroBlue's INTRO (tetsuwan_blue(at)yahoo.com.au)
    This is easily the best Golf game around, It's a bit better than its sister
    version on the N64. I don't know why it's called Mario Golf though, Apart from
    Peach's Castle and Mario, Luigi & Wario it really has nothing to do with Mario
    unlike the N64 version. If you've played original GOLF on the Game Boy you'll
    notice hitting perfect shots is a lot easier because the bar in the POWERGAUGE
    is a lot slower, GOLF does seem like a boring sport with all those bad pants
    and rules but golf games are usually fun. And this is no exception.
    
    Shdwrlm3's INTRO (shdwrlm3(at)wariocompany.com)
    If I could only use one word to describe Mario Golf for Gameboy Color,it would
    have to be: WOW! Golf had never been my favourite sport (in fact, I hated it),
    and when I first heard about Mario Golf I thought it would be some horrible
    golf game with the Mario name attached just to help it sell.  Though I still
    think the inclusion of Mario characters was just a marketing ploy, Mario Golf
    is still an _outstanding golf_ game brought to us by the makers of Hot Shots
    Golf. Not only do I know more about golf than I ever wanted to know, I now have
    a new-found respect for it. Believe me, even if you despise the sport of golf,
    try Mario Golf- it'll surprise you!

    If you select male you will get to choose between Kid and Joe, If you select
    female you will get to choose between Sherry and Azalea. When selecting a
    character, take these stats in mind + means when the red bars stop from the

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    iii)Play Modes
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    MARION      This has the core of the game in it, This modes plays like a RPG
    CLUBHOUSE   and through it you can access Mario Golf's World.
    
    TOURNAMENT  Play in a Club Tournament, the person with the lowest score at the
                end of the day wins. You can get EXP. Points and Trophies in this
                mode. Not to mention you can unlock other Tournaments and stuff by
                winning.
    
    MATCH GAME  You play head to head against a computer controlled player, The
                winner of the game doesn't necessarily have the lowest score, the
                winner is determined by the amount of holes you got a lower score
                then your opponent.
    
    STROKE      Play a round of golf, with no opponents. No stress here!
    
    TRAINING    Practice makes perfect! Practice on any hole!
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    iv)Golfing Tips and Basics
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    To play like a pro you have to know the basics, So here are some things that
    may help you.
     ______________
    |Club Selection|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Remember to select the appropriate clubs with the up and down buttons on the
    Control Pad, since the game sometimes doesn't auto select the proper club.
    Balls are most wind affected when you use Drivers or a Sandwedge and are less
    affected by wind when you use Irons (Your 2 Iron has the lowest trajectory your
    Sand-Wedge has the highest). It is vital to remember that certain clubs are
    more affected by the terrain your shooting from, and always and I mean always
    take the wind into account!
     ____________________
    |USING THE POWERGAUGE|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    To hit the Ball as far as you can press A once to start swinging, Then press A
    again when the bar hits Point 1 then press A again when the ball comes up to
    Point 2.
    
    1||||'||||'||||'||||2||
    
     ______________________
    |Power & Approach Shots|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Pressing B changes your shot to a Power Shot, You only get 6 but if you hit it
    perfect you won't lose any. If you're 60 yards from the hole pressing B will
    change your shot between a 60 yard approach, a 30 yard approach and Normal
    Settings. You should use approach shots to get close to the flag.
     _________________
    |Intentional Shots|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Holding certain directions while your swinging before the balls impact affects
    certain qualities of your shot. You can affect how much the ball spins, By
    pressing up you add Forward Spin; with Forward Spin the ball will roll more and
    the balls trajectory will be lower. By pressing down you add Back Spin; with
    Back Spin the ball will stop fast and may roll backwards and the trajectory
    will be higher. You can also make the ball curve left or right these are called
    Intentional Shots and can be very helpful in avoiding trees, just press the
    Control Pad in the opposite direction you want it to curve before impact you
    can mix Spin with Curve by pressing on the Control Pad diagonally.
     __________
    |Short Game|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    If your Putting pressing B will change your shot between a Large 60 yard put, a
    Middle 30 yard putt & a Small 10 yard putt, You have to read the lie of the
    ball and change your aim so the ball curves into the hole. Remember Putting is
    a vital thing to learn.

    3)WALKTHROUGH
    ===============================================================================
     ___________
    |Marion Club|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Firstly walk around the Marion Club and talk to some people, then go out the
    northern exit of the club. You can compete straight away in a tournament but I
    would go down the road and visit these people and do what they ask, if you need
    help see the Star Challenges section.
    
    The people who initiate Star Challenges are:
    In the Driving Range
      •Far Left Boy -Teaches you Driver Tee Shots.
      •Girl in the Middle  -Teaches you Iron Shots.
    Approach Practice Range
      •Boy on the Fairway -Teaches you a Running Approach.
      •Girl near the Green -Teaches you a Chip Approach.
    Practice Putting Green
      •Boy in the Top Right of the Green -Challenges you to a putting Contest.
    
    After you finish all the training you should play Putts in a Match Game, to do
    this go in the top right door in Marion Club then walk to the left then up, A
    girl will stop you before going up the stairs and will tell you who the Grand
    Champs are. Now talk to Putts and initiate a Match Game then take him to the
    Caddie Master in any club (the guy or girl in front the caddie shack) or you
    can skip that and play in the Marion Club Tournament, to do this just talk to
    the Caddie Master. Putts always gets -1 in this tournament so you really only
    have to get 2 Birdies then Par the rest to win.
    
    After beating Putts in a Match Game go to the newly opened Tiny-Tots Golf
    Grounds.
     _________
    |Palm Club|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    The people who initiate Star Challenges are:
    In the Driving Range
      •Girl in the Mid-Left -Teaches Wind Shots to you.
      •Boy to the Right     -Teaches you Intentionally Curved Shots.
    Approach Practice Range
      •Girl near the Green -Teaches you a Running Approach on a Sloped Green.
      •Boy in the Bunker -Teaches you Bunker Shots.
    Practice Putting Green
      •Boy in the Far Right -Challenges you to a Putting Contest.
    
    Play in the Tournament, Grace always gets -3 so you only have to get 4 Birdies
    and Par the rest to win. Then play Grace in a Match Game.
    
    After beating Grace in a Match Game go to the newly opened Mini-Mini Lake
    Course.
     _________
    |Dune Club|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    The people who initiate Star Challenges are:
    In the Driving Range
      •Far Right Boy -Teaches you Attacking a Two-Tiered Green w/ Hazard
      •Girl on the Far-Left, beyond the Cacti- Teaches you a Recovery Shot.
    Approach Practice Range
      •Boy near the Guarding Bunker -Teaches you how to Lob Shot.
      •Girl on the Fairway -Teaches you Carry and Roll
    Practice Putting Green
      •Boy in Bottom Left of Green -Challenges you to a Putting Contest.
    
    Play in the Tournament, Tiny always gets -5 so you only have to get
    6 Birdies and Par the rest to win. You can only play Tiny in a Match Game if
    you've beaten Grace.
    
    After beating Tiny in a Match Game go to the newly opened Raven Wood's Course.
    
    If you placed in the tournament talk to the three people standing in triangle
    in the Practice Putting Green to play an Alternate Game.
    
    See the Club Maker and choose between a Special Distance or a Special Control
    Club you can only choose one but you can switch between your original club and
    the one you chose by seeing him. I would personally choose the Control club
    since in straightens out your shot and gives you great accuracy.
     __________
    |Links Club|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    The people who initiate Star Challenges are:
    In the Driving Range
      •Boy in the Top Right beyond Trees -Teaches you a Foliage Recover Shot.
      •Girl in the Top Left near a Bunker -Teaches you a Bunker Recovery Shot.
    Approach Practice Range
      •Boy above the Green -Teaches you a Rough Approach.
      •Girl left of the Green -Teaches you how to Cut across a Hill.
    Practice Putting Green
      •The Southern-most Boy-Challenges you to a Putting Contest.
    
    Play in the Tournament, Gene Y. always gets -7 so you only have to get 8
    Birdies and Par the rest to win. You can only play Gene Y. in a Match Game if
    you've beaten Tiny.
    
    If you place go to all the people that taught you things on this course for a
    Challenge.
    
    After beating Gene Y. in a Match Game go to the newly opened Golf Guru's Pitch
    & Putt.

    |Peach's Castle|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Now if you've beaten all of the Club Champs in Match Games and won a Gold
    Trophy at every club, walk up to Link's Club & the sky will flash then a
    invitation from Peach will fall down. After you read it a star will fall out of
    the sky and make a rainbow. Enter the rainbow then walk on the cloud and talk
    to all the Mushroom People, then talk to the Bob-omb then jump in his Cannon.
    Now you're in the courtyard of Peach's Castle in the Sky, you can talk to all
    different Mario characters here including Yoshi, D.K & Bowser from here you
    can participate in the last tournament by talking to Peach.
    
    Mario always gets -9 so you only have to get 10 Birdies then par the rest.
    
    Then Play Mario in a Match Game.
    
    Then if you beat Mario play Wario in a Match Game.
    
    Sorry guys, but word will never get around that you beat Mario and you will
    never be able to open the door to Peach's Castle! But who cares this game still
    has unlimited replay value!
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    4)STAR CHALLENGES
    ===============================================================================
    In the RPG mode, various people will offer to teach you useful techniques that
    are very helpful in becoming Grand Champ. All these people will grant you a
    star after you complete the task. There are 20 stars in all that you can get
    from these Challenges. Getting all the stars gets you absolutely nothing at
    all. But you will net bucket loads of EXP. Points
    
    If you get a hole in one in the Shot or Approach Lessons or 10/10 in the
    Putting contest a certain amount of Experience points will be added to the
    Experience points you get for completing the Star Challenge. This is determined
    by which club the Star Challenge is in:
    Marion Club: Extra 5 Exp. Points
    Palm Club: Extra 6 Exp. Points
    Dune Club: Extra 11 Exp. Points
    Links Club: Extra 12 Exp. Points
    
    These tips are only recommended.  If they don't work for you, just keep trying.
    
    Note: R stands for recommended
    Note: R Meter Power is the recommended placement of the power gauge bars.
    Perfect means the tallest bar on the left and the tallest bar on the right of
    the power gauge. Anything else, like Middle, means placing one bar in the
    stated area (in this case, in the middle) and the other at the right-most
    tallest bar. I hope that isn't too confusing.

    Talk to the three people huddled in Dune Club's Practice Putting Green to
    participate in an Alternate Game. In Mario Golf's Dictionary an Alternate Game
    is stated as "A game in which a team of players takes turns hitting the same
    ball" which is pretty accurate. You team up with Lime and Play against Flint &
    Lily you can choose between Match Game or Stroke choose Match Game because you
    can win by a Dormie, Lime sometimes plays really well but most of the time
    she's really crap. Try to make it easy for her.

    Some naughty kids haven't picked up their balls :) so you have to help a lady
    clean up by shooting all the balls close to the hole (Inside the dark green
    circle) within the time limit. Just adjust each shot each time you play (it
    takes a couple of goes) all I can remember is that you can do the first one
    easily by pressing B then Shoot as far as you can, Remember to overshoot the
    hole if the ball is in the rough or in a Bunker. Also if you go to the northern
    most part of the grounds and press A, Sherry will pop out if you choose Kid,
    Joe or Azalea, she's one of the naughty kids.

    You have to help prove to a guy's trainer that a shot isn't impossible, The guy
    has shot the ball into the water so he had to drop it in the rough and the hole
    is to far away from the ball to hit it easily. I'm not sure how I did it but I
    think I used a 2 Iron with Power Shot on and I added roll onto the ball by
    pressing up while I shot, the ball should bounce out of the water & onto the
    green. If you can't do it build up your level. You will get 175 Exp. Points, if
    you skip the ball off the water & on to the green.

    A Raven has stolen a man's hat and keeps on landing on the pin, So the man
    thinks if you hit the pin the raven will drop the hat, Firstly the Raven only
    comes back to the pin if you steep out away from the pin on the Dark Green
    Rough, Secondly if you want to hit the pin with an approach shot take into
    account that the wind changes back and forth in a set pattern each new time
    you attempt to hit it, I think I hit it by using a large putt and kept on
    adjusting till I hit the pin, It takes some time but all the Mini-Games do.

    This is very hard, you have to birdie every shot and it's a Short Course
    (9 Holes), just practice hard. Don't quit if you Par or Bogey just keep on
    playing, you'll need the practice on the last few holes. As helmacron stated in
    one of his E-Mails you have to pitch it onto the green then putt it, If you
    don't do that but you still Birdie all the holes the man will say "Oh-hoh!
    shooting 18 is great, but not getting on in one doesn't cut it"

    7) GOLF CLINIC GIBBERISH
    ===============================================================================
    To most people (Who haven't read Mario Golf's inbuilt Dictionary tsk...tsk...)
    what the coaches say would be utter gobbledegook (mind the expression), So if
    you don't know what their talking about; it is hard to fix the problems in your
    swing. So this is what this section is here for. Firstly it has the name of the
    stat in a box, then a description of how this stat affects your game & then
    there is a little table of how what the Golf Clinic's Coaches say relates to
    your stats. But with a Special Club it alters your performance without changing
    it on the Stat screen.
     _____
    |Drive|
     ŻŻŻŻŻ
    The longer the drive the better, nuff said.
    
        < 220 You have a average shot / It's a ball that needs carry
    221 - 240 You have a decent shot / It's a ball that lacks carry
    241 - 260 You have a good shot / It's a ball that has OK carry
    261 - 280 You have a pro's shot / It is a ball that has carry
    281 - 300 You have a top pro's shot / It's a ball that has nice carry
    301 >     You have a master's shot / It's a ball that has huge carry
     ______
    |Height|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    The higher you get the more it is affected by the wind, this has it's upsides
    but it is mainly a hindrance. If you get too low the ball will roll too much
    and you wont be able to get the benefits of a headwind. So the best height
    you shot can possibly be IMHO is a tad low.
    
    +|||||||> It's really low, / Lie can bury it,
    <+||||||> It's quite low, / Lie can hold it,
    <|+|||||> It's kinda low, / It feels it's lie,
    <||+||||> It's a tad low, / It feels lie,
    <|||+|||> Heights average, / affect is average,
    <||||+||> It's a tad high, / Wind pushes it,
    <|||||+|> It's kinda high, / Wind blows it,
    <||||||+> It's quit high, / It sticks to wind,
    <|||||||+ It's sky high, / It follows wind,
     ____
    |Shot|
     ŻŻŻŻ
    The closer you can get to a straight shot the better.
    
    +|||||||> with a bad fade! / and has no control.
    <+||||||> with a sharp fade! / and is hard to control.
    <|+|||||> that fades! / and has good control.
    <||+||||> that fades a bit! / and is easy to control.
    <|||+|||> that's straight! / and has classic control.
    <||||+||> that draws a bit! / and is easy to control.
    <|||||+|> that draws! / and has good control.
    <||||||+> with a sharp draw! / and is hard to control.
    <|||||||+ with a bad draw! / and has no control.
    
     _________
    |Meet Area|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    The larger the meet area the better, this makes it easier to hit a better shot,
    since point 2 on the power gauge will be wider (see Golfing Tips and Basics).
    
    +|||||||>
    <+||||||> meet area's tiny, / timings off,
    <|+|||||> meet area's narrow, / timing needs work,
    <||+||||> meet area's slim, / timing's so-so,
    <|||+|||> meet area's avg., / timing's average,
    <||||+||> meet area's wide, / timing's not bad,

    <|||||||+ meet area's huge, / timing's a cinch,
     _______
    |Control|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    The less waver the better, as you will hit the ball steadier.
    
    +|||||||> with major waver. / and aim... UGH!
    <+||||||> with lotsa waver. / and aim is awful!
    <|+|||||> with big waver. / and aim is bad!

    <|||||+|> with slight waver. / and aim's good!
    <||||||+> with little waver. / and aim's great!
    <|||||||+ with no waver. / and aim's perfect!

    8)GAINING LEVELS
    ===============================================================================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    i)Which Stat should I choose to boost?
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Picking what stat you choose to boost can be hard on a Level up if you choose
    wrong you can end off worse, Never neglect any stats or you'll have to try and
    fix the consequences, Don't worry if you level up a stat and the bar doesn't
    move it still does makes a difference whether it's next time you level up that
    stat the bar will move or that the stat won't decrease next Level up. Earn all
    the stars to gain lots of EXP, Leave the Mushrooms for the last couple of
    levels when it's harder to level up. YoshiH E-mailed me and told me "The
    highest level you can build a golfer up to is Level 99. After that, during the
    screen that gives you the experience earned, it says at the bottom that you are
    at the highest level!"
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ii)1-UP Mushrooms
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    There are 3 1-UP locations I know of, Each one makes you gain a level instantly
    hold out on collecting them for a while though they are :
    1)In the Directors Office in Marion Club in 1 of the cabinets across from the
      Grandfather Clock.
    2)In the Club Makers Hut in one of the cabinets.
    3)In Peach's Castle's Courtyard in one of the bushes.
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    9)BIRDIE BADGES
    ===============================================================================
    • Birdie badges can be acquired by getting a Birdie (1 below par) on a hole.
    • Also, Eagles, Albatrosses, and Hole-in-Ones net Birdie badges.
    • You don't have to get them in one sitting.
    • Once you get a Birdie Badge, you don't need to get it again (unless you
      create a new character)
    • There is a total of 90 Birdie Badges. As far as I know, you don't get
      anything for getting them all, they may do something in the N64 version.
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    10)NINTENDO 64 VERSION and TRANSFER PAK RELATED
    ===============================================================================
    (Thanks to Side_FX for letting me use some of his info)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    i)N64 Version
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Nintendo 64 version of Mario Golf is a lot different then the CGB version
    but it's just as good, It's more of a golf sim game and doesn't have the odd
    couple mix of a SPORT\RPG it's just SPORT. It also has more to do with Mario.
    The courses all have a certain Mario theme, it may look cutesy but it still has
    realistic physics and is a lot of fun to play.
    
    The N64 Version has the Training, Tournament & Stroke Modes like the CGB
    version but Match Game is Get Character Mode and VS Mode is Match Game it also
    has an extra 5 modes here is a brief description of each mode:
    Mini Golf  - Play a round of Putt-Putt Golf.
    Speed Golf - Like Stroke but your are timed on how fast you complete the round.
    Skins      - If you get the lowest amount of strokes for a hole you get a skin,
                 the person with the most skins wins in the end.
    Ring Shot  - Shoot the ball through the ring(s) and Par to get a Star.
    Club Shot  - Like a Match Game but your Clubs are determined by a Slot Machine
    
    The N64 Version has 6 courses instead of 5 they are-
    Toad Highlands, Koopa Park, Shy Guy Desert, Yoshi's Island, Boo Valley &
    Mario's Star
    
    The N64 version has a more Players to play with instead of 11 it has 18
    including 4 that are only possible with a Transfer Pak and Mario Golf CGB, The
    other 14 are Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Bowser, Wario, Metal
    Mario, Baby Mario, Charlie, Plum, Sonny, Harry & Maple.
    
    The N64 Version plays much like the CGB Version it has all the same meters and
    displays in the same place apart from there's a Boo instead of a Arrow on the
    Wind Meter the only other real difference is that it's 3D and certain things
    like C-Button Navigation and Grids are added.
    
    The rest of this section is made from excerpts from Side FX's Mario Golf 64
    Guide (I got Side FX's permission) but I have made some minor corrections and
    major additions to it. I only have rented The N64 version of Mario Golf three
    times so, I still really don't know much about it.
    Side FX's Mario Golf FAQ/Guide for the N64 version can be viewed at:
    * www.gamefaqs.com
    * www.public.asu.edu/~ruokandy/mariogolf/mariogolf.txt
    I highly recommend you read it if you own Mario Golf 64.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ii)N64 Compatibility
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    At the bottom of the character select screen of the N64 version of Mario Golf
    are 4 empty slots.  These slots are reserved for up to 4 players that can be
    imported from the Game Boy Color version of Mario Golf, However, in order to
    import any characters, you'll need a Transfer Pak (see Transfer Pak),If you
    were wondering how you can fill four spaces with only three players, Unlike
    Pokémon Stadium you can hotswap CGB Game Paks, Imported characters *cannot*
    be saved in the N64 version. When you turn off the N64 and turn it on again,
    you'll need to re-import these characters.
    
    Mario Golf is the first N64 game to be released that supports the Transfer Pak.
    
    By importing your character into the N64 version, you can view your character
    in 3D and play out a couple rounds. Kid looks really weird :) What's great is
    that any experience points you earn for your character on the N64 version can
    be transferred back to the Game Boy Color version!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    iii)Transfer Pak
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Transfer Pak plugs into the back of a N64 controller.  Using this device,
    the N64 version and the Game Boy Color version of Mario Golf can communicate
    with each other and send data back and forth.
     __________
    |Booting Up|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    First, make sure the Game Boy Color cartridge of Mario Golf is plugged snugly
    into the Transfer Pak and the Transfer Pak is properly inserted into the N64
    controller. Next, with the N64 version of Mario Golf properly inserted, turn
    on the N64. The Pre-Boot Transmit menu will automatically pop up.
     ______________________
    |Pre-Boot Transmit Menu|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    STATUS  -  Allows you to transfer Mario Golf for N64 data to Mario Golf for
               Game Boy.  This data is displayed in the Status menu in a new
               option called N64 Status it includes
               Tournaments - Status of the N64 tournaments.
               Best Scores - Records of each characters best scores on each course.
               Vs. Records - Records for Get Character & Match Game
               Speed Golf  - Best times / Scores of Speed Golf.
               Ring Shot   - Status of Ring Shot Mode
               I wonder if you can play any of the N64 characters on the CGB
               version, there are icons for them in the Vs. Records?
    
    GAME BOY CHARACTER  -  Allows you to bring up to four players (Three if you
                           only have one Game Pak) that you have trained in the
                           Game Boy Color version over to the N64 version.
    
    MAIN MENU  -  Ends communication with Mario Golf for Game Boy and returns to
                  the main menu.
     _____________
    |Transmit Menu|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    If you Imported any CGB Characters this menu will be accessible instead of the
    Continue menu this means you cannot save, but it also means you can access two
    options.
    
    STATUS  - Same as the Pre-Boot Transmit Menu Status option.
    
    EXP Pts - Use this option to Transmit any Experience Points you have acquired
              using you character in the N64 version, The amount of experience
              points un-transfered is displayed under each character.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    iv)Taunts
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    During a match involving 2 or more contestants in the N64 version, players
    have the option to cheer or taunt their opponent(s). Cheers are executed
    using the Control Pad while Taunts are done using the C buttons.
    
    Here are the CGB's Characters Taunts-
    
    * KID *
    ,-----------------------------------.
    |    _CHEERS_                       |

    11)CHEATS
    ===============================================================================
     ______________
    |Free the Three| (Kid's location contributed by MYoshiH)
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Their were four people to choose from right, And you chose one right, So
    where's the other 3. Why should I care? you say, Well if you find them all you
    get 300 EXP, so here's their locations. Walk up to the area stated and press A.
    (Note: You can't find the character you're playing.)
    Sherry- You'll find her in the northern most part of Tiny Tots.
    Azalea- You'll find her in the rightmost part of Palm's Putting Grounds.
    Joe- You'll find him in the leftmost part of Raven Woods look at the folded bit
    Kid- Look in the tree closest to the entrance to the Links Club Putting Range.
         You'll have to face the tree by pushing Down (thus having it kinda look
         like your character is looking at you) and push A.
     ________________
    |Southpaw Central|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Press select while choosing a player (Kid, Sherry, Joe & Azalea not included)
    to play left handed.
     _________________
    |Try and Try Again|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Some sites have posted up that by Resetting your game (Press A, B, Select &
    Start simultaneously) you can Mulligan this is incorrect this only worked in
    the original Gameboy GOLF game, So if you fudged up a hole save then resume
    your save and you will be back at the Tee.
     _______________
    |Sick of Circles|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    To get a Star instead of a Circle on the Match Game table you have to beat the
    rival in one seating if you save it will be a circle. If you make them all
    Stars Peach's Door won't open, you cannot open that door it's not a sprite it's
    background if you look carefully.

    |Darn, Pitch and Putt| (Contributed by James Kay)
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    After finishing Golf Guru's Pitch & Putt, that course becomes available to play
    as a fully fledged 18-hole course, you can even access it through the Stroke &
    Practice menu's. They are all par 3, and use different combinations of tees and
    greens as you played them in the mini-game (e.g. Tee 1 to green 1, tee 1 to
    green 2, tee 2 to green 2, tee 2 to green 1 are the first four holes).

    |Wiggle that Logo!|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Here a useless piece of info, Pressing any direction on the Press Start screen
    will make the Mario Golf logo move around.

    You really just have to convert the number you want from decimal to hex & then
    input the two pairs of values into the modifiers.
    
    Example 1 (Recommended):
    320 >HEX> 0140
    You insert 01 into #2 and 40 into #1.
    So you would input 01401AC8 & 01011BC8.
    
    Example 2 (The highest possible):
    999 >HEX> 03E7
    You insert 03 into #2 and E7 into #1.
    So you would input 01E71AC8 & 01031BC8.

    Once you get to the course select screen on which ever mode you desire turn on
    this code, select Marion Club, then turn off when the game starts. Codes 07 on,
    don't work so great in Tournament mode, but they work fine in Match game and
    other modes. Also, on codes 07 on, it's sometimes not a great idea to view the
    course map.
    
    01 Mario Club
    02 Palm Club
    03 Dune Club
    04 Links CLub
    05 Peach's Castle
