"Everybody's Golf (みんなのGOLF Minna no Golf), (known as Hot Shots Golf in North America) is a series of golf games published by Sony throughout the history of the PlayStation series of video game consoles. The series is well-known for its humorous look on the game of golf (including cartoon-like caricatures) and guest characters from other games, along with modes such as miniature golf and its ability to maintain a realistic engine with precise control in tandem with the unrealistic design. The series is popular with both golf fans and non-fans alike.
Everybody's Golf spawned 7 sequels: Everybody's Golf 2, Everybody's Golf 3, Everybody's Golf 4, Everybody's Golf Portable, Minna no Golf Ba, Everybody's Golf 5 and Everybody's Golf Portable 2. There is also a spin-off to the series: Everybody's Tennis."
