Nintendo Switch Sports Golf update is live

Nintendo has delivered its previously promised golf update for Nintendo Switch Sports.

Starting today, players can play golf on any of 21 courses from the Wii Sports series, including Wii Sports Resort and Wii Sports Club. There’s also the option to play Survival Golf, in which players are eliminated after each round.

Additionally, this update includes an optional Shot Assist mode for golf that makes shots more accurate. It should be noted that this mode can only be used in Play Locally and Play With Friends. Read the full patch notes below:


  • Golf has been added. It can be enjoyed in all modes: Play Globally, Play Locally and Play with Friends.
  • We added a Shot Assist mode in Golf to make it easier for beginners to play. To use it, go to Options → User Settings → Other.
    • This setting only applies to Play Locally and Play with Friends.
    • Please be aware that even if you have Shot Assist mode on, your setting will revert to Normal in Play Globally mode.

Play with Friends

  • LAN play is now compatible.


  • Several issues have been fixed to improve the gameplay experience.
