Mario has hit the links, bunkers, and out-of-bounds areas of Mushroom Kingdom’s many golf courses since the debut of Mario Golf on Nintendo 64 back in 1999, but with so many games now on offer, the question was always bound to pop up. Which is the best Mario Golf game? Well, someone asked Reddit, and two clear favourites emerged.
The Mario Golf Reddit poll, which you can find by clicking this link, has plenty of votes from opinionated Redditors pointing out why their favourite should be everyone else’s favourite, but there does seem to be a general consensus. Mario 64 has thirteen votes to Toadstool Tour’s eleven, with the rest lingering well behind, but it’s also clear from the comments that many haven’t hit par with Princess Peach since the debut Nintendo 64 title, so they might be a little biased.
Despite the popularity of TT and 64, it’s fans of Mario Golf: World Tour for 3DS that seem to have the most passionate fervour from its community, with those pointing out the often overlooked title as a hidden gem in the Mario sports library (if there can be such a thing). Someone has also suggested Mario Tennis, but we think they might be on the wrong list.
One title you won’t see much of on the Mario Golf tier list is Super Rush. The lack of love for the latest title in the series isn’t surprising, considering our own Mario Golf Super Rush review wasn’t exactly glowing. Looking back, it seems Nintendo might be better-minded just to re-release Toadstool Tour if this poll is anything to go by.
