Mario Golf: Advance Tour (Game Boy Advance)
Entrance, Out & About, Palms Club Tournament, Dunes Club Course
Mario Golf: Advance Tour is the fourth game in the Mario Golf series and released in 2004 for the Game Boy Advance.
This track is a great introductory song to the game. It features a very classic Mario sound that can be found throughout the many Mario spin-off games.
Out & About
This is a relatively mild theme that has a slow major melody after the lengthy intro. The track then repeats.
Palm Clubs Tournament
This is a theme track to a location in the game that is paired with the tournament mode. It's a very fast theme that's reminiscent of more an RPG style, however, it fits astonishingly well with the game.
Dunes Club Course
Another location theme, this track really focuses on a funky bass line introduction that keeps the songs momentum throughout. There's an excellent plucked string instrument shortly after the intro, right before the song splits into a very robust theme.
