Golf is one of the five sports available for play in Wii Sports and Wii Sports Club and one of the 12 in Wii Sports Resort. The objective of the game is to hit the golf ball into the hole in as few shots as possible. If the ball goes out of bounds or worse, 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 will be forced to give up for a +6, +8 or +10.

In Wii Sports Resort, the player can advance to Pro Class, and then to Superstar Class if the player gets a theoretical score.

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 every 9 holes. These are the current theoretical scores in each Wii Sports game:

Wii Sports = -22

Wii Sports Resort = -23

Wii Sports Club = -21

Out Of Bounds/Water Hazard

In all games, two strokes will be used (therefore a one-shot penalty) instead of one when the ball goes out of bounds or into a water hazard.

  • In Wii Sports, if the ball goes Out Of Bounds or in the Water Hazard, there will be a male crowd saying "Aww..." and a buzzer will go off. The way the men in the first installment Wii Sports say "UHHH" is much quieter then how the women do when the ball is lost in a Water Hazard or is Out Of Bounds in the two other installments of Wii Sports.
  • In Wii Sports Resort, when going Out Of Bounds, the female crowd will shout "UHHH!!!" and the buzzer will go off at the same time. When the ball goes in the Water Hazard in the Wii Sports Resort, the female crowd will shout "UHHH!!!" before the buzzer goes off.
  • The same women from Wii Sports Resort will be heard when the ball falls in the Water Hazard in Wii Sports Club. The same women from Wii Sports Resort will not be heard when the ball goes Out Of Bounds in Wii Sports Club. The buzzer is the only sound to be heard when the ball is Out Of Bounds in Wii Sports Club.
  • The ball falling off the cliff and in the water in the first intermediate course (which is hole number 4) in the first installment of Wii Sports is also considered Out Of Bounds.


  • In the Wii Sports Resort Edition, there is an unlockable stage for three holes: the Special course.
  • The nine holes in Wii Sports Golf are 3D versions of the holes in the NES game Golf. 
  • When the screen turns black after the warning screen for a game of golf, hold "2" and the power meter, map, and wind speed will no longer appear.
  • In Wii Sports, the maximum skill level you can achieve is 2868.
  • In Hole 5 in Wii Sports (or Classic Hole 5 for Wii Sports Resort) there is a hidden castle sitting amongst some trees. This castle doesn't appear in Wii Sports Club.
  • This sport is the only sport that is no different in all Wii Sports games. It all plays the same, it just has different golf courses.
  • On the 7th hole for the lakeside courses in Wii Sports Club, the Wii U logo appears in the water.

    You can see the whole thing in the map, and only the W when looking at Michael golfing.
