Hole in One (ホールインワン Houruinwan?) is the 1st minigame played in Rhythm Heaven Fever and 30th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. The player takes control of a golfer who hits the golf balls thrown to him by Monkey and Mandrill. Its practice mode starts with the character monkey introducing the main concept of rhythm and demonstrating its importance within the game. The sequel, Hole in One 2, is unlocked later on.


Hole in One 3DS gameplay

Monkey and Mandrill throw golf balls toward the player, who must press A button to hit them at the right time to launch them across a lake and directly into the golf hole. Monkey makes a two-beat cue, throwing the golf ball on the second beat in which the player must hit on the third. Mandrill makes a four-beat cue, throwing the golf ball much more aggressively on the fourth beat which the player must hit at the same time.


Button Mode

  • A: Swing golf club

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Swing golf club

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The player will hit the golf balls over to the island.
  • Barely: The player will hit the golf balls, but they will be either knocked to the left or right (depending on how early or late it is hit), landing in water. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: For small golf balls, they will roll past the player, with Monkey frowning. For Mandrill's throws, they will fly into the golfer's leg, causing him to wince in pain.
