* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' featured this on the eighteenth hole of a round of golf designed to settle a fender-bender between Grandpa Phil and Big Bob Pataki. Phil is forced to play a ball from a diner's quiche, and Arnold needs to make up a rhyme so that he can hit it. Found [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHC4wy1BhB0&feature=related here]].

* Jesus and Saint Peter are playing gold in Heaven. Jesus swings, the ball goes wayo to the left, bounces off a tree and into a bird's nest, causing the panicking bird to fly around and drop the ball into the hole. Saint Peter then says "Lord, are we here to play golf or screw around?".

* ''VideoGame/{{Pangya}}'' has, among other things, courses set amongst ''naval fleets'' and inside the netherworld. You can pull off special shots that, for example, turn your ball into a cruise missile that explodes and stays put upon impact or make it shoot straight ahead before launching up to mimic a cobra.

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017'' features both these things, though the first type was offered to change, as Glomgold insisted that Scrooge just take the penalty in a conventional game. But Scrooge, ever proud said, "A true scotsman plays it where it lands", landing them in "Druid Golf", where type 2 starts happening with Dewey making improbable shots.


* An inverted second type happened on ''{{Entourage}}'' when Ari played a round of golf against a studio head, wagering Vince's role in one of the studio's movies. The exec was coached by Phil Mickelson and it looked like Ari had no chance of winning. It all came down to the final putt which Ari missed. The miracle came when the exec began yelling at Ari, had a heart attack, and dropped dead. A stroke of luck, indeed.

* ''Golf It!'' is much in the same boat as the custom maps can include "Halloween pachinko", incredibly difficult hole-in-ones, and shooting your golf ball out of a pirate cannon into the mouth of the Kraken.
