The last released golf game was Mario Sports Superstars that was released in 2017 for the Nintendo 3DS.

Mario Golf: Super Rush Gameplay
The game has 6 modes that you can play around with 2 friends or more. The first mode is Standard Golf. You can choose to play as a single-player game or game with up to four players. The person with the lowest scores wins the game. It’s just the classic golf mode where you strike the golf ball. You can choose to have between 3 to 18 holes and also unlock 6 different courses for you to play. You can either play turn by turn or play all at a single time.
The Speed Golf mode is all about being able to score the highest within a given amount of time. You can also use Special Shots and perform dashes to beat your opponent. You can choose between the number of holes and players just like in the previous mode. However, since this is a race event, all players will be playing at the same time.
Here is a fun mode called Golf Adventure. You can even call it a full-fledged career mode as you can progress from a rookie to a pro player and also train your character and enjoy playing the action-packed story mode. You will also be able to play against various bosses in Mario Golf: Super Rush.
There is also a Solo Challenge mode where just as it says in the title you get to play various solo matches and even go ahead to practice the various kinds of shots. You can play around to try to beat your score as well. Battle Golf mode is where Mario Golf: Super Rush is at. The entire course is filled with various kinds of obstacles and is a race with your friends to see who can score the highest. The catch? If someone sinks the ball in the hole, it gets closed, meaning that you will have to dodge around and keep sinking the ball in the holes that are spread over the course. That is it on Mario Golf Super Rush Gameplay.
