Golf is one of the 5 sports available for play in Wii Sports and one of the 12 in Wii Sports Resort. The objective of the game is to hit the golf ball into the hole in a few shots as possible. If the ball goes out of bounds or into the water hazard, the player takes a one shot penalty and will take his next shot in the same position. If the player has taken the number of strokes for par times 3 on a hole, the player doesn't finish the course and receives 9, 12 or 15 points and +6, +8 and +10 on his overage.

Wind Meter

The wind meter tells you how much the wind is blowing. In a 9-hole game, the wind blows at a completely random number. The wind depends on the difficulty on a 3-hole game, like in beginner, the wind blows 0-10 miles per hour. Here are some other wind blowing difficulties:

*Intermediate = 10-20 mph*

*Expert = 20-30 mph*

The wind does not blow on any odd numbers unless the wind meter is measuring the wind in m/s.

Theoretical Score

The theoretical score is the best score possible because it depends on the 9-hole courses how many highest ranks there are in each 9 holes. These are the current theoretical scores in each Wii Sports game:

Wii Sports = -22

Wii Sports Resort = -21

Wii Sports Club = -21
