We Love Golf! presents a realistic golfing experience with a fresh new spin incorporating the Wii Remote's unique motion-sensing functionality. Players will use the controller to choose clubs, line up shots, swing and even add a touch fade or draw with a flick of the wrist. Just as on a real course, gauging wind conditions, correct club selection and careful reading of the greens are all essential for victory.

Problems

Game Crashes on Course Load

Due inadvertent reliance on the behavior of the dcbz instruction behavior, this game does not work on Dolphin. Refer to issue 9184. Fixed by 5.0-540

It's actually possible to get in-game if you're very careful about things. Dolphin doesn't emulate the GameCube/Wii PPC L1/L2 caches, which actually are the result of this game crashing. We can simulate enough of the behavior in this particular game though by using the option in Game Properties "Skip DCBZ Clearing." This will cause serious defects in the menu, but upon loading the course, you then savestate. Now exit the game, return the option to normal, and loadstate. The game will proceed normally for a while until its next cache issue.
