VERSION HISTORY
###############

1.1 (August 1st, 2004) - Added a currently unconfirmed easter egg. Also 
clarified how to get Kid's Custom Ticket, and added the location of the other 
Custom Ticket A. All of this is made possible by my readers, so keep it coming!

1.0 (July 10th, 2004) - First version.

#################
PRELIMINARY NOTES
#################

- Toadstool Tour (the Gamecube game) may be abbreviated to TT whenever I need 
more room on a line (or whenever I'm feeling lazy).

- When I refer to Birdie Badges from Toadstool Tour, ONLY the regular 
tournaments count! Star tournaments will not give you any help!

###########
THE SECRETS
###########

---Easter Egg---
"Grawl" tells me that when you're selecting your character at the very 
beginning, holding down left or right to make the cursor move back and forth 
really fast will get Toad (who's running around following your cursor) to say 
various funny comments. *I've been unable to confirm this, as I really don't 
want to bother deleting my saved data and losing my character to do so.*

---Mushroom Course---
To unlock the Mushroom course in all modes, you'll need to beat (place in?) the 
Links Tourney. In story mode, you'll only be able to go there with your partner 
if you beat the Links on Doubles, and you'll only be able to go alone if you 
beat the Links on Singles. No such restrictions apply in other modes, of 
course.

---Modes---
Star Tourneys (Quick Play): Beat the Mushroom Tourney in Singles or Doubles for 
the respective Singles or Doubles Star Tourney. Same as in Toadstool Tour 
(better opponents, tourney greens), but using the Star courses. 

---Characters---
* Champs
Each champion human character is earned by beating them at either a Singles or 
Doubles match game.

* Star Mode
To get Star Mode on each of the four original Mario golfers, defeat them in a 
character battle under Quick Play mode. Star Mode gives them a vastly increased 
power, at the cost of a bit of impact.

* Game Link Characters (All come with Star Mode)
Luigi: Get XP back from Toadstool Tour.
Waluigi: Link to a TT game that has at least 27 Birdie Badges.
Wario: Link to a TT game that has at least 54 Birdie Badges.
Bowser: Link to a TT game that has at least 81 Birdie Badges.

---Star Courses---

Note 1: You can play on a star course as soon as you have at least one hole 
from it, but only the holes you have unlocked will actually be star holes. 
Holes you haven't unlocked will be loaded from the regular course.

Note 2: It's possible that the awards are somewhat randomized; still, there's 
patterns involved, and it'll be the same set of goals for you to accomplish.

Note 3: When going for the TT character match awards, star mode is irrelevant.

---Club Tickets---
NOTE: These are where the tickets were in my game. Depending on the order in 
which you complete certain events, the games on the Practice Grounds where you 
whack enemies with your ball may give you either drinks or tickets. No matter 
what order you do things, you will end up with the same amount of tickets. If 
you don't have a ticket and you've done what I've said, try doing some of the 
things listed below under "Hidden Items" that give you drinks.

Ticket A:
* In the drawers in the custom club shop.

* Clear all three difficulties at the One-Club challenge.

Ticket B:
* Go to the Palms Practice Grounds. Head towards the putting green, but walk on 
the path on the right around it. You'll go down a ladder and to a beach with a 
sign. Read the sign, and a Blooper will appear. Practice nearby and whack him, 
and he'll run to the left side of the grounds. Get there by the path in the 
lower right of the grounds, and nail him again. The ticket will float to the 
beach in front of you.

* Clear all three difficulties at the Next Gen Epoch Golf Mini-Park.

Ticket C:
* Head to the upper right corner of the Dunes Practice Grounds; there should be 
a sign warning about Pokeys. When you head down the stairs to the desert area, 
a Pokey will pop up and move to the left. Hit it with the ball, follow it, hit 
it again, follow it, and hit it again. Then grab the ticket.

* Defeat the Coo-Coo Course.

Ticket D: Talk to Kid (at the Links Practice Grounds) after clearing the 
Mushroom Course. (3rd or better, or only 1st? Singles or Doubles?)

---Hidden Items---
-Marion Clubhouse-
* Check the barrel at the front yard of the castle, next to the door on the 
left. (Power Drink, +2y drive)
* Go to the practice grounds, and head to the upper left corner. There'll be a 
path covered in rough, and a sign warning about Klepto. Head through and you'll 
find Klepto carrying a Koopa shell across a pond from you. Press A to start 
practice, and whack Klepto with the ball. (Make sure you get the obstacle "x" 
marker. If you're low on power, it might takes some finagling with the impact 
marker. You'll be hitting from the rough.) The Koopa shell has a Koopa Troopa 
inside, he'll swim over and give you a Power Drink as thanks. (Power Drink, +2y 
drive)
* Go into the Memorial Records room after beating all the Memorial Scores 
(singles and doubles). (Hyper Drink, +5y drive)

-Overworld-
* Examine the big tree at the north side of the world. (1-Up Mushroom, +1 
level)

-Lucky Country-
* Beat all four courses. (Muscle Drink, +4y drive)

-Go-Go Gates Forest-
* Beat all four courses. (Muscle Drink, +4y drive)

-Coo-Coo Course-
* Examine the barrel behind the cabin. (Super Drink, +3y drive)

-Links Practice Grounds-
* Head to the upper right corner of the Links Practice Grounds; there should be 
a sign warning about Monty Moles. Head up to find a mole, and whack him. Follow 
him (you'll have to take the route between the Driving and Approach Ranges) and 
give him another (you'll have to shoot from heath here.. yikes). Repeat (this 
time take the route that starts at the bottom left of the grounds, the shot 
will be from "only" normal rough) and grab the item he leaves behind. (Super 
Drink, +3y drive)

-Peach's Castle-
* Check the barrel in the upper right. (1-Up Mushroom, +1 level)

-TT Link 1-Up Mushrooms-
NOTE: Each mushroom can only be obtained once.
* Defeat the Bowser Championship with one of your characters.
* Defeat any of the three original Side Games with one of you characters. (1 
each)
* Defeat any of the secret characters in a character match with one of your 
characters. (1 each; star mode is irrelevant)
