Getting all the trophies in "What the Golf?" is essential to getting that elusive 100% completion in this game. Most of them can be found by fully finishing all flags in a level section. A few are secret and require some clever problem solving. Use this guide to complete your collection or finally lock down a specific trophy you are missing and have been hunting for.
What the Golf? is available on Apple devices through Apple Arcade, Nintendo Switch, and on Windows through Steam.
2D Golf: Get a crown for every flag on the left side of the lab.
Livingroom Golf: Get a crown for every flag on the right side of the lab.
Golf Game: Get a crown for every flag on the bottom left side of the lab.
Footgolf: Get a crown for every flag on the bottom right side of the lab.
Space Golf: Get a crown for every flag on the upper left side of the lab.
Boom Golf: Get a crown for every flag on the upper right side of the lab.
Olympic Golf: Get a crown for every flag on the left side of the lab.
Heavy ball and pins golf: Get a crown for every flag on the right side of the lab.
Turkey/Champion: As soon as you beat the computer in Lab 6 and enter Lab 7, head into the room on the right. It's a small bathroom but in the furthest stall there will be a broken water pipe which will shuttle your ball into another room. Inside this room will be a trophy chest with the Turkey or Champion (depending on platform you are playing on) trophy inside. This is a secret area.
Microscope (Portal Golf): The top left section of the lab, after entering the tunnel which transforms your golf ball into a love block, has a series of flags and mechanics referencing the game "Portal". In this section, you create portals which, when entered, will expel you out of another. Use this tricky mechanic to solve a series of flags and challenges. At the end will be a trophy box that will contain the Microscope trophy.
There is one tricky flag called "Three guns" here. See the "Three guns" level guide if you are stuck on completing this flag while you're here.
Red Horse (Super Putt): In the top right side of the lab, the game references the game "SUPERHOT" where time only moves when you move. Go through all of these flags in the section and at the end will be a gate which unlocks. Through this gate is a trophy box which will contain the Red Horse trophy.
Level 5 (Lab 05)
Pizza (05A) (Kitchen Golf): After entering the fifth lab (level 5) by defeating Computer 6, go straight through a tunnel that will transform your golf ball into a toast and will lead to a cafeteria. On the left side, by the vending machines, there will be a trophy box which contains the Pizza trophy.
Chicken (05B) (Down to earth): Continuing as a toast, there will be a blue-colored area where the direction of gravity switches based on the direction of the arrows shown in the background. There will be a tricky platforming section in the middle with two flags on each end. Go in the down direction and there will be a chicken next to a trophy box. Open it and it will contain the Chicken trophy.
Apple (05B): Continuing in the blue-colored area, platform your way to the most upper-left part of this section, opposite of where the Chicken trophy was. There will eventually be a narrow passageway where in the corner will contain a trophy box with the Apple trophy.
Game Controller (05C) (First person golf): The right side of this lab will involve flags with first-person view mechanics. After finishing the right side of the fifth lab, there will be a trophy box with the Game Controller trophy inside of it.
Putter (05C) (F=GOLFmM/r^2): This is a secret trophy. You'll unlock the putter trophy. This trophy box can briefly be seen on the right side of lab 5 but across a body of water. At this point in your progression, you are not able to get this trophy. You must come back to it after unlocking lab 02.
When you get there, from lab 2, on the right side of the lab, you'll see a boat ride available to you (see screenshots below). Take the boat to the bottom right corner where you'll see a secret river. Follow this river, navigating its bends, to find a hidden beach. There will be a toaster on this chunk of land (which is actually located in lab 5). Because it spans three levels, it's one of a trickiest ones in the game, congratulations.
Musical Golf: Finish the left part of this lab.
Stealthy Golf: Finish the right part of this lab.
Jungle Putt: Finish the left part of this lab.
Motorized Golf: Finish the right part of this lab.
Sandy Golf: Finish the right part of this lab. They're the flags on the islands.
Desert Golf: Finish the left part of this lab. They're the flags in the desert section (without the water).
Remember to take the boat that you can find, and go up the long river which takes you to lab 05. Then unlock the chest to get a misleading level 5 trophy.
Finish the game to get the last trophy.
Congratulations, you unlocked every trophy in the game!
