A fantastic golfing title that competes with the big boys. It features five full courses and a host of mini-games that'll keep people busy for those long road-trips. My only complaint would be that it is far too easy.
This game is amazing. I would kill 1000 kittens to get a sequel to this game for the Wii. It's probably the most fun I have had playing a single player sports game ever. The adventure mode is so much fun, it makes me depressed that games of this quality are going the way of the dodo, while billions are spent by EA trying to get the grass look more realistic while creating enjoyable single player modes(franchise/be-a-pro modes) is overlooked. Edge Magazine should be ashamed of themselves for give this game a 6/10.
Stuffed with extra modes, supporting character upload to GC Toadstool Tour and bundled with a wireless adapter, Advance Tour is great value, but it's also rather clumsy and bland. Only in the minigames, when Mario and company show up both in person and in spirit … does it really find a life of its own. [July 2004, p.109]

They only downfall that I have about the game are the RPG elements, where you have to go through the whole map and carry on through the dialogue with the many background characters, before you start a golf match or a training session or whatnot.
Major improvement over the Mario Golf GBC game, but suffers from using the Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour controls. Double Battles are exceptionally awful as your Partner becomes a massive liability holding you back. The game becomes super broken with ultra long hitting clubs, making an Albatrosss/Double Eagle far easier to get than a Hole in One in the exact polar opposite to Mario Golf GBC and real life. Great soundtrack and story, but the controls and super broken ultra long range clubs hurt the final score massively.
SummaryIn Mario Golf Advance Tour, you can experience all the fun of golf with your favorite characters from the Mushroom Kingdom. Now you can hit fantastic courses in a variety of locales, while learning tips and tricks and interacting with locals at the clubhouse. Compete in singles and doubles tournaments against the pros, practice your swin...
