Mario Golf: Super Rush’s final boss fight is against the Snow King in the Bowser Highlands. To get there, you’ll need to win a Special Match in Wildweather Woods.

In this Mario Golf: Super Rush guide, we’ll give you some tips for the Special Match, and walk you through the Snow King boss fight.

Equip lightning clubs and attire

The shop in Wildweather Woods sells a few clubs that prevent you from being struck by lightning. Pick them up and add them to your bag. They also sell lightning-mitigating attire.

Win a Special Match

Before you can get to Mount Snow, you’ll need to earn a Gold Badge by winning a Special Match. This match at Wildweather Woods is Speed Golf with points-based scoring. This means your score for each hole will be your time plus 30 seconds for each shot. At the end of each hole, you’ll be ranked against the other two players, and the fastest will get 3 points while the slowest only gets 1.

You’ll need to finish in first place to get the Gold Badge.

While playing remember that rain and wet weather slows down your putts a lot. The points-based scoring also means that the scores are going to change wildly from hole to hole, so don’t get discouraged. Just keep at it.

Head to Mount Snow

With your new Gold Badge, follow the arrow to the final course, the Bowser Highlands. Walk straight forward to (automatically) light the brazier in the center of town.

You don’t have to worry about lightning anymore, so change out of your lightning gear and swap out those lightning clubs.

Before you can continue, you’ll have to play a nine-hole round of best ball. This is a new game mode that just means one player on your team — you, Wario, or Waluigi — needs to finish at par or better on every hole.

You’re not competing against anyone here (even though you’re each getting your own score), so just focus on finishing at or under par. Don’t worry much if you mess something up. One of the other two will usually make up for you if something goes wrong. Remember, just one player has to finish at or below par — it doesn’t matter which.

Defeat Snow King

The Snow King is by far the hardest boss you’ve faced.

Break the crystals

For the first phase, you’ll need to use the bob-ombs to break the red and green crystals. Make sure you check your club and the overhead view to make sure you’ve got the distance and height you need.

While running around between the bob-ombs, watch for the purple attack markers on the ground. If those attacks hit the bob-ombs, they’ll explode and you’ll have to wait for them to respawn.

Attack Snow King

For the next phase, you’re attacking Snow King directly. Use bob-ombs or wait for him to throw a giant snowball.

After a snowball hits the ground, stand on top of the pile of snow it creates and hit a duff shot back at Snow King.

Break the crystals (again)

After you hit him a couple of times, he’ll put his shield back up and you’ll have to break four more crystals. Make sure you check your clubs and the distance again.

Attack Snow King (again)

Once all four crystals are down, turn your attention to Snow King again. Use either bob-ombs or duff shots from his snowballs.

After a couple of hits, he’ll shield the crystals. This time, wait for him to throw a snowball, and line up for a duff shot. This one will turn into a Power of Flame attack and finish him off.

Once he’s defeated, you’ll see credits and be able to use your Mii in Battle Golf.
