Cursed to Golf Trophy Guide and Road Map for PS4 & PS5
Welcome to our Cursed to Golf Trophy Guide. Cursed to Golf is a unique, 2D, side-scrolling, indie blend of Golf and Roguelike gameplay. You will need to try and make your way through 18 holes of side-on golf action without ever going above par.
If you do, you’ll be sent back to the beginning of the course to start again at Hole 1—which will have changed since last time! To shake things up even more, there are special power cards you can collect and play at any time. Heck, there’s even Boss Fights!
So as you can see, there’s plenty to love about Cursed to Golf but there’s also a lot to dislike. The RNG nature of each course can mean that if you get caught out without the right cards at the right time or just have a string of bad luck, even the most impressive runs can coming screeching to a halt.
The trophy journey, fortunately, doesn’t provide much extra frustration. It will ask very little more of you than to just reach the end of the game and beat the final boss. Sure, there are a couple of misc trophies, but nothing anywhere near as challenging as beating the game.
Phase One | Play 18 Holes
In this first phase of our Cursed to Golf Trophy Guide, just focus on reaching Hole 18!
Along the way, you will need to defeat four bosses, each of which will net you a trophy. The only progression that persists between playthroughs is actually the bosses, you won’t have to face them again in subsequent runs once you’ve defeated them. They’ll also give you abilities that make progressing quicker and easier with each run.
Note that it is possible to restart a hole by closing the game and opening it back up again, you’ll even get your cards back. However, the game saves incredibly quickly once you run out of swings, so try not to let that happen and restart before then if you can foresee a failure to meet par. This is hands-down the best way to make consistent progress in the game. Before I started doing this, I spent 5 hours in the game without ever beating the first boss. After starting to do this, I reached the end of the game in under 5 extra hours.
Unmissable Story Trophies
Learned to play golf, then died!?
You’ll basically unlock the “The GOAT?” trophy for starting the game. It unlocks extremely early and automatically in the story, which is pretty wild given that it is a gold trophy!
You're on your own
Passed the Golf Purgatory tutorial trials!
Not long after unlocking The GOAT?, you will unlock the “You’re on your own” trophy after being shown the ropes in Golf Purgatory by the Scotsman.
Passed the Scotsman's challenge!
The Scotsman is the first boss you’ll need to face during the Cursed to Golf Story Campaign. After you’ve beat Hole 5, the next stage will be you vs the Scotsman in a lengthy challenge stage. Beat him to the hole and hole out first to unlock the “The Scotsman” trophy and progress the story further.
Half way house. Completed 9 holes.
The “Front 9” trophy will unlock after you beat Hole 9, indicating that you have reached the halfway point of the Cursed to Golf campaign.
Passed the Explorer's challenge!
The Explorer is the second boss you’ll need to face during the Cursed to Golf Story Campaign. After you’ve beat Hole 9, the next stage will be you vs the Explorer in a lengthy challenge stage. Beat her to the hole and hole out first to unlock the “The Explorer” trophy and progress the story further.
Passed the Forgotten's challenge!
The Forgotten is the third boss you’ll need to face during the Cursed to Golf Story Campaign. After you’ve beat Hole 15, the next stage will be you vs the Forgotten in a lengthy challenge stage. Beat her to the hole and hole out first to unlock the “The Forgotten” trophy and progress the story further.
Put the Greenskeeper in his place.
The Greenskeeper is technically the fourth and final boss of Cursed to Golf, but you won’t really have to deal with him. His pet, Birdie, will instead harass you for the final three holes. If, however, you manage to reach and hole out on the 18th hole, the Greenskeeper will be defeated and you’ll be allowed to proceed through the short but challenge-less sprint to the game’s credits. Alongside the Back 9 trophy, then, you will also unlock this The Greenskeeper trophy for completing Hole 18.
Phase Two | Miscellaneous Trophy Cleanup
With the story complete, there’s just a handful of miscellaneous trophies vying for your attention. Many of these may have even unlocked naturally, but the ACE! and Hole in One trophies will prove to be the last real challenge between you and the Cursed to Golf Platinum Trophy.
Always believe in GOLD! Smash 50 Gold Idols.
There are many reports of this trophy being glitched, but it seems to have been patched. I had no trouble earning this trophy and did so without actively pursuing it!
You will have noticed by now (as its quite difficult to complete many stages without them) that there are gold statues in each stage that you can destroy with your ball to tack 4 more swings onto the current hole’s par. This is pretty much always worth doing. Even if you waste two swings getting a gold idol and then returning to where you were, that’s still a profit of two swings.
You should be—and probably have been—hitting pretty much every Gold Idol you get close to. As a result, you’re bound to hit plenty more than just 50 Gold Idols throughout the story campaign, making this trophy unlock naturally. However, if you’ve been very conservative or just haven’t needed them as much as me, you might need to farm a few more at the end of your trophy journey.
If you’ve beaten the story and still don’t have this trophy, just keep replaying Classic Mode and hitting Gold Idols until the “GOLD” trophy pops.
Finished a hole in 4 shots.
Completing a hole in just 4 shots is not as difficult as it may sound. Many of the holes in the Scotsman’s area are short enough that this may even occur naturally. However, if you are struggling, check out the method for the Hole in One trophy. You could technically use the same method and then waste a few shots before holing out.
Finished a hole in 3 shots.
As with Birdie, holing out in just 3 shots is also not as difficult as it may sound. Many of the holes in the Scotsman’s area are short enough that this may even occur naturally. However, if you are struggling, check out the method for the Hole in One trophy. You could technically use the same method and then waste a few shots before holing out.
Finished a hole in 2 shots.
ACE! is one of the hardest trophies to earn in Cursed to Golf. There are no courses short enough that you could complete them in just two swings without the use of Power Cards. Fortunately, the foolproof method explained for Hole in One will also work here. Just be sure to waste a shot before holing out!
Hole in One
Finished a hole in 1 shot.
The Hole in One trophy is definitely one of the bigger challenges that Cursed to Golf has to offer, however, it’s truly not so bad once you understand the best method for acquiring it.
There are several possible hole layouts that can spawn in the first 5 holes of your run in which a Hole in One is possible. Below are two such examples, but there are even more.
At each hole, you should stop and press and then inspect the layout of the map around you. What you want is a hole where the flag is on the other side of a single wall. When you get one like that, you can use either a “Portals” Power Card or a Drill Ball Power Card to pass through the wall and hole out in a single swing.
But how do you get the Portal and Drill ball cards so early? Well, after you beat the Forgotten boss during the story, she will give you a new ability called “Recovery.”
This excellent ability will allow you to keep your Power Cards when you die and bring them with you into the next round! So, you should play through a few holes to stockpile as many portal and drill ball cards as you can. Then when you eventually reset the game with your full deck of Power Cards intact, you will have a much broader selection available in the earlier levels.
Unfortunately, unlocking this trophy will not automatically unlock the Birdie, Eagle, and ACE! trophies, but this method is viable for those trophies too, you’ll just need to waste a few shots before holing out.
Obtain all other trophies
After collecting every trophy in this Cursed to Golf Trophy Guide, the "Major Winner " Platinum Trophy will unlock. Congratulations!
