Kirby's Dream Course is a mini-golf game featuring the pink blob Kirby. After his adventures in Dream Land Kirby himself becomes the ball, and you must guide him around each hole using the sort of bar system that you see in most golf games. Where this game differs, however, is in the fact that you need to eliminate all on-screen enemies before you can guide Kirby into the hole and complete it. As per usual in golf games, the more strokes it takes you to complete the whole, the lower your score - so make sure you aim Kirby just right!

You'll find eight courses and a total of sixty-four holes in the game, not including the final showdown with King Dedede, as well as an action-packed two-player mode.

Originally the game was not intended to be a Kirby title. It was planned as Special Tee Shot, a simple miniature golfing game. Midway through development, however, the developers retooled it with elements from Kirby's universe. Special Tee Shot was released, some time later, on the Satellaview add-on, only in Japan of course.
