Last week, Nintendo announced that it would finally be rolling out a new free golf game update Nintendo Switch Sports. It’s now officially live, which means you should be able to update and play your copy now.

This latest update brings the game up to version 1.3.0. Includes Golf “Survival Mode” – which supports up to eight players. This update also adds LAN playback and addresses “multiple issues”.

Hit the fairway across 21 holes from Wii Sports Chain up and play with friends in local or online play, or play golf with up to eight players in the all-new online Survival Golf mode. The player who gets the most hits in each round will be eliminated.

Here are the full patch notes, courtesy of Nintendo’s official support page:

Version 1.3.0 (Released November 28, 2022)


  • Golf has been added. It can be enjoyed in all modes: play globally, play locally and play with friends.
  • We’ve added a Shot Assist mode in Golf to make it easier for beginners to play. To use it, go to Options → User Settings → Other.
    • This setting only applies to playing locally and playing with friends.
    • Please be aware that even if you have Shot Assist mode turned on, your setting will revert to Normal in Play Global mode.
