If you want to play in the best seasons reservation for the course is best to be confirmed one year before the seasons of spring and summer. The course layout which has natural ponds, up and downs, along with beauty and bounds that maybe afflicting to the player. Watch out for small animals which may appear as your fascination may cause you to miss your shot, please be careful!

So I posted this news earlier but time for me to go into some detail about it. Online Mode will be Free~! Okay, well by default it will be free… This doesn’t rule out that there will be some special contents that you will need to pay to get or enjoy. But it will be free to connect, create or modify your avatars and play with your friends. Here is a image of the Lobby…

While in the lobby you can modify your appearance with items you have.

For those who have played Minna no Golf Online, this Lobby will look very familiar to you. It is understandable why Minna no Golf Online service was terminated awhile back… I suspect they were using the servers for testing Minna no Golf 5 Online… » More ・ もっと読む…?

Who’s this Special Guest Japanese Pro Golfer Maruyama Shigeki [丸山茂樹プロ]…? Well he was the special guest that was on the video at the event last night.

PGA Tour Pro Golfer Maru-chan has arrived! 
Pro Golfer Maruyama Shigeki [Born in Japan].
Consitantly overflowing smile that is bright and fresh all the time when in thought of a match with a strong opponent. Maruyama Shigeki is also an amusing character and you will be involuntarily charmed by the figure earnestly driven into golf.

Maru-chan Caddie [Born in Japan].
Excellent also as a caddie from the ability and experience of world tours. He can be trusted by everybody. He will be just like an old pal who’s been around with you from the dawn of time.

Well then time to go through the new characters. I’m thinking the reason for the low amount of characters is the fact that they are more detailed and require more work than before. The game will total at 15 playable characters, similar to the amount of characters in the first Minna no Golf on Sony Playstation 2, Minna no Golf 3. Also featuring 6 selectable caddies.

To start off, the set of Beginner characters are as follows… Note: I didn’t come up with any weird stories… the character descriptions was a translation of the Minna no Golf 5 site information.

A Bright, Fresh and Active Female High School Student.
Jasmine [17 Years Old – Born in Japan].
She has a beautifuly tempoed swing which was learnt from her golf loving father. She now has recently joined the High School Golf Club and is practicing very hard to improve. With a emotional type of character which can appear during the good and the bad times in golf.
Jasmine [17 - Japan]
 元気で明るく爽やかな現役女子高生。ジャスミン[17歳 – 出身:日本] ゴルフ大好きなお父さんから教わった綺麗でテンポの良いスイングが印象的。 今は、高校のゴルフ部に入部して一生懸命練習に励んでいる。 感情的な性格がゴルフにも出て、調子の良い時と悪い時の差が多いことも。

A Unsofisticated and very direct type of character.
Conan [15 Years Old – Born in Japan].
Since he plays with nature everyday, it is his specialty to read the wind and feel the flow of grains on the turf. His small sized body is well covered by his good waist form and swing.
Conan [15 - Japan]
純朴でとても真っ直な性格。コナン[15歳 – 出身:日本] 毎日、自然を相手に遊んでいたので 風や芝目をよむのはお手の物。 体の小ささを腰をグッと入れたスイングでカバー。

So the first time I’m playing Minna no Golf 5 on the Sony Playstation 3, and well I’m not enjoying it because I don’t have my Full HDTV yet. >.< Anyway, I was wondering if they have Spiral Shot in Mingol 5… so I went for a shot and suddenly it was a Spiral Ace… 😉
