NES Open Tournament Golf featured three different courses. Those courses were the US Course, Japan Course, and the UK Course. Although the Japan Course and UK Course are also playable courses in Mario Open Golf they do not contain the same holes. There are some holes in each course that are identical or nearly identical to holes found in NES Open Tournament Golf. For example, hole number one in the Australia Course is hole number nine in the US Course.
The player must play Stroke Play (not in a tournament) to be eligible to be promoted to the next rank. If they have played well enough, they will be offered the chance to move to the next level. This usually requires playing two 18 hole rounds. They start off as a beginner, after which they can progress to amateur, semi-professional, and professional. Their rank is displayed on the title screen.
In this mode the winner is determined by whoever wins the most holes. To win a hole the player must get a lower score than their opponent. If they and their opponent get the same amount of stokes on a hole, it results in a tie. At the end of all 18 holes whoever has won the most holes wins the match. If by the 18th hole there is still a tie, players will start back at the first hole until a winner is declared. In the single player mode, the first challenger is Luigi and once the player has won a match against him, they will face off with four newly created characters:
Steve - Beginner
Mark - Amateur
Tony - Semi-Professional
Billy - Professional
In this mode players have the option of either playing Stroke Play or Match Play. Depending on the players rank and score for the round they will earn prize money. At the end of the round they will be shown a scoreboard. The ranks range from 1st to 37th place. The higher they rank for that round the more money they will win. Prize money can be viewed by selecting the Prize Money option in the Clubhouse. A record of the players total earnings is saved, even after the system is turned off.
"Bet On 1 Hole" is an option you can select if the player chooses Match Play. In this mode a computer controlled opponent will challenge the player to one hole. Whoever gets the lower score on that hole wins the match. If the player succeeds they will earn prize money, as well as the option to continue playing the next hole for an increased amount of prize money. In the event of a draw the player can continue to play for the same amount of prize money that was up for grabs on the previous hole. If they lose the hole they will lose whatever amount of prize money was set for that hole and the match will end.
In this mode you are able to toggle between several different options as well as view various game data.
