So today there was an update that brings back the Lobby Golf feature by fixing a bug that was wrong with it during it’s original release late last year.

Due to the grief this may have caused for players they have included 20 free Lobby Golf balls for players who login between the 16th and the 20th of January 2014.

How does Lobby Golf work?

For starters it is a special lobby you can access by selecting the other club house. Each lobby on each floor appears to be a different course with it’s own score ranking board. You can quick view each ranking board from the floor by pressing square on the lobby.

Once you enter the lobby you will be introduced with some instructions. Summary of the instructions is basically how to operate the lobby and how it all works.

  • Number of balls is limited:
    Your balls are obtained from playing Real Tournaments, so for those who have been wondering what they have been accumulating at the end of their tournaments it is just extra balls to use for lobby golf.
  • Distance to chip results in more points:
    Just like normal chip-ins the distance is equal to the score you get for your chip in. There is no special shots as the chip-ins are just your basic roll and sinks.
  • Lobby Spells can be unlocked through playing Lobby Golf:
    However after closer inspection the spells are activated through chat commands. So if you cannot type Japanese it may not be possible to use them.
  • Controls are simple:
    First you need golf balls, next you can start from anywhere you want that isn’t unplayable space. Press confirm and it will go into swing mode.
    Most of it looks and feels the same as normal golf except that you’re basically playing with the Minna no Club deal where you don’t need to press impact.

Overall it’s a nice touch but not really adding to the game since they’ve destroyed any competitiveness the game ever had… I’ll update this post later with screens once I get my image processing done.
