Speed Golf, which supports online and offline play, involves racing to putt your ball before your friends. Points are scored based on how quickly you can get the job done.

  • Speed is king in the brand new Speed Golf mode! Take your positions on the starting line and race to the hole to claim first place. Speed Golf is available to play online or offline on any course, including all workshop content! Speed Golf can even be experienced in teams play for an all new team racing experience.
    • New game setting options are now available for Speed Golf players. Race to the hole in an anything goes ruleset where only time matters, or add time penalties for every stroke taken to reward both speed and accuracy.

      • Turbo Charge Boosters are also now available to use in the Level Editor in order to turbo charge your own creations!
    • Sometimes slowing down is the best way to speed up. The new handbrake feature allows you to slow your roll, opening up new ways for you to save yourself valuable seconds, or you know, just save yourself.
  • The brand new “Critical Hit” pack is now available featuring 10 new cosmetic items based on the spoils of a particularly fruitful party’s campaign. This pack includes 4 Hats, 2 Floaties, 2 Trails and 2 Stickers.


All Platforms:

  • Fixed an issue where the wrong course could be loaded if players joined an online lobby while other players are in practice mode or the mode menu.
  • Fixed a bug where player names were not censored in the in-game score feed during multiplayer gameplay regardless of swear filter settings.
  • Fixed a problem where the Teams selection list could overlay the Controlled Disconnection message if triggered concurrently.
