OneShot Golf Game Overview
OneShot Golf is the first Connected Reality game where you take over control of real golfing robots to try to sink putts for the most points to win prizes.
Each course consists of 5 holes and has a leaderboard displaying the users that are leading.
Prizes range from gift cards to in-game prize points that you can redeem for gift cards or OneShot Golf merch.
Every day the leaderboard is reset so make sure to play your FREE rounds every single day. In addition you can purchase tokens for additional rounds or token only courses.
OneShot Golf: Golf Madness – Hole 2: Gopher Town
The second hole of the Golf Madness course is mostly a flat surface with one of two hole options being a gopher mound. The current point systems are 125 and 100.
Holes with significant elevation changes have a “View Slopes” at the bottom right hand corner of the screen during play or can be viewed in the “Hole Info” section on the top right hand side of the course details screen.
Five mechanical gophers also pop up and down to act as a timed obstacle. One stuffed gopher (I call him the gopher king) chills in an old hole placement on the right. Both hole placements require hitting through the moving gophers but luckily have a backstop as a secondary save. Also note the hole on the right is a much smaller cup size.*
This course is a daily free round eligible course or each additional play is 50 tokens.
*OneShot Golf does an excellent job with adding new content and also with changing up hole designs on occasion. What is reflected in this post may be different from current gameplay at any moment.
100 – The hole is to the right between the stuffed gopher “King” and mechanical gopher #4 or “Kevin” and over gopher #5 “Charles Edward V”. The hole has a green wedge as a backboard but the cup has a smaller hole size. The timing must be right to get through the gophers.
125 – The hole is to the left between gopher #1 “Cheeks” and gopher #3 “Adopted”. The shot goes directly over gopher #2 “Headache”. The hole is on a mound with a wide hole size and brown wedge backboard. The 3-D rendering shows the slope. Timing is also key to this hole.
Time Bonus – 50 although it’s likely improbable to get more than 45 points since you do have to aim and power up. You can do both at the same time but it can get really sloppy and unreliable with your putts. Also you have to keep the gopher movements in mind as well. You only have small intervals to make the putt.
Max Score – 175
Mister Mini Golf Pro Tips
Since this game awards prizes for those that perform the best each day, I will not be providing the exact power levels or angles of the shots needed to ensure a successful hole-in-one in order to maintain the skillfulness of the competition. I will provide a strategy and a hint to help you figure it out.
It’s always best to work on making the shots for the highest point for each and every hole. Ultimately that’s what will give you a top prize. The more you practice those shots, the more likely you will consistently make them.
In the case of Hole 2 – Gopher Town, I happen to know quite a bit about mechanical gophers and how to tame them.
The secret to taming mechanical gophers is to give them a name. I called the big “bull” gopher, “Goober” he did not like that and threw me off a 20ft gopher mound!
If you want to conquer the Gopher Town hole, focus first on your alignment to cleanly clear the gophers, then gopher timing, then test out different levels of power, lastly work on being able to play the hole faster to get more points from the time bonus.
Tip: Saving and watching your replays can really help with honing in on the perfect shot! Learn the sequence of the gophers, they are creatures of habit!
ADA Accessibility Notes: Due to the nature of using an app to control golfing robots, OneShot Golf is a highly accessible form of Mini Golf for nearly everyone that has access to a strong internet connection and a smart device.
For more details on course accessibility, always check in with a course you are visiting as they may be able to do additional accommodations. In addition, a great resource is the ADA Checklist for Miniature Golf Courses.
