    Wii Golf Tips for Beginners

    Golf isn’t really an easy sport in real life, and it isn’t easy when playing on the Nintendo Wii in Wii Sports Golf either. It will take practice and skill, as well as some luck, too. These Wii golf tips are aimed for the beginner, but everyone could benefit from reading them to help improve their virtual golf swing as well!

    Wii Golf Tips 

    For beginners, it is advised to take all of the practice lessons as you can before jumping into a game in either Wii Sports or Wii Sports Resort. The training areas in the Wii Sports game includes three different areas to really get your game better. Be sure to play these and you will become better. Practice makes perfect!

    Once you do start playing for real, I suggest starting out with just a three-hole course. Unless you have some real unnatural talent, you probably won’t be that great your first few tries at playing. Starting with fewer holes will make you less frustrated.

    Before attempting a shot, always be sure to look at which direction the hole is and also notice any obstacles that may be in your way. This is very important to do before each swing because you could end up sending it in the completely wrong direction if you don’t!

    You’ll use the Wii remote to swing the golf club as you would in real life, sort of. You will need to step up to the golf ball by holding down on the A button, and then use the swing meter to determine how strong you will hit the ball. This is really important! If you go too far past the shaded area, you will end up sending the ball in an area you don’t want it. Be careful!
