Monkey Golf is a Mini Game in Super Monkey Ball, and later a Party Game in the rest of the Super Monkey Ball series except Monkey Ball and Super Monkey Ball Adventure, from which games it was excluded.
In Super Monkey Ball 2 it is known as Monkey Golf 2. In it, the monkeys play a game of mini-golf, except in Super Monkey Ball 2 and Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz where it is a regular game of golf. It is also absent in Super Monkey Ball: Step & Roll and Super Monkey Ball 3D, but it returns in the couple of the other latest games in the series.
The object of the game is to get your Monkey Ball into the hole within a few strokes as possible. After nine strokes in any hole, you're forced to give up and receive a score of 10.
If you hit the ball into a water hazard or out of bounds, the ball is replaced at the stroke starting point, and you are charged for the stroke you took plus a penalty stroke, for a net cost of two strokes for no gain.
