How to get Character Points in Mario Golf: Super Rush is a question that many players are asking at the moment as they aim to earn Star Club Sets for their favorite characters.

In Mario Golf: Super Rush, Star Club Sets boost both the Power and Spin stats of its user, making them a necessity to have for those looking to maximize their winning potential. However, both the Star and Super Star level Club Sets are only obtainable once a player has enough Character Points saved up. Here's how to get Character Points in Mario Golf: Super Rush.

How to get Character Points in Mario Golf: Super Rush

To get Character Points in Mario Golf: Super Rush, players simply need to use the character they want to earn the points for in any of the Standard, Speed or Battle Golf game modes.

Since the Character Points earn will only be given to the character that you were using, it's important to decide beforehand which character you want to stick to for some time and deck out with Star Club Sets.

As touched on before, each character in Mario Golf: Super Rush starts off with a standard club set and has two Star Club Sets available for them to unlock:

  • ★ Star Club Set: 1000 Character Points required
  • ★★ Super Star Club Set: 3000 Character Points required

To see how much Character Points you have earned per character, go to the "Play Stats" from the Main Menu. Once there, select "Characters" and then choose one to see their Character Points listed at the bottom.

The amount of Character Points you receive depends on how well you perform on a hole. Here's the breakdown of how the points given:

  • Hole-in-One: 100 points
  • Albatross: 50 points
  • Eagle: 20 points
  • Birdie: 10 points
  • Playing a Hole: 10 points
  • Picking Up a Coin (Speed Golf-only): 3 points

Solo Challenges are probably the best way to go to earn Character Points as not only do their length and sheer amount of opportunities to score provides you with the best chance to rack up as many points as possible, but they can also make you better at the game.
