Congratulations on reaching Tour 8 in Gold Clash! So, here’s where you will first see some solid opponents so I have written this guide to show you how to win here.
Below you will find all the courses in Tour 8 with the best ways how to play them as well as some recommendations which clubs will work best for each course.
Eagle Peak Walkthrough For Tour 8
Hole 1 (Par 4)
Clubs To Use: Backbone or Goliath
The right line is the way to play this hole normally and if you have criss winds from the side. Try to reach far enough to pass the trees on the left side so you can get a straight hit towards the green. Overpower if needed when you have headwind.
Without wind from the side you can try to play the left line and bounce it on the rough to get as close to the bunker as possible for a possible eagle in the second hit when you’re close to the green.
Hole 2 (Par 3)
Clubs to use: Backbone/Viper or Sniper
You can go for the save way and bounce the ball in front of the bunker and go for the green.
The ground is not that even there so it’s a little random how the ball will bounce on the green but should give you a birdie.
You can also risk more and drive from the second tee and bounce on the left side of the bunker where the ground is more even to have the best chance for a hole-in-one in Tour 8.
Hole 3 (Par 5)
Clubs to use: Big Dawg or Sniper/Cataclysm
The right line is the normal way to play this hole unless you have strong headwind. Bounce the ball as close to the end of the fairway as you can to bounce over the rough with front spin to reach as far on the second fairway as you can. For your second hit you need all the backspin you have as you need to bounce behind the bunker and on the green.
With strong headwind you need to play the left line – bounce it on the outside of the fairway before the bunker and add as much topspin and some curl as well to go as far on the fairway as possible to get a clean shot for the green in your second hit. In your second hit you will bounce on the rough and reach for the green – almost no chance to get a albatross in Tour 8 with headwind here so rather play it save and go for the eagle.
Hole 4 (Par 3)
Clubs To Use: Backbone, Golath or Sniper
This hole is pretty straightforward at Tour 8 and I wouldn’t use a driver here to have more accurracy.
Bounce the ball right in front of the bunker and use some sidespin to the left to get a better line towards the pin and also to stay away from the bunker and the rough.
Hole 5 (Par 4)
Clubs To Use: Big Topper/Quarterback/Thor’s Hammer/Thorn
This isone of the more tricky holes in Tour 8 and you need to use curl and frontspin/overpower to follow the fairway to the left side as far as possible. If you can’t make it past the trees you will need either an additional hit or have an extremely risky second shot to reach for the green.
Once you made it there you can either use a club with good backspin to go directly on the green or you will use the rough in front of the green to “roll down” the ball on the green.
Hole 6 (Par 5)
Clubs To Use: Big Dawg or Cataclysm/Sniper
The left side is more comfortably to play but you need a lot of topspin and overpower your shot with 50-100% (depends on the wind), if you fail that you will not have it hard to get this done against the typical player in Tour 8.
The right side is the safer option and you can then either play in between the trees in the open spot directly for the green or you curl around the last section of trees.
Do make a right assumption on your skills here and practice.
Hole 7 (Par 3)
Club To Use: Backbone, Goliath or Sniper
The left line is the standard play for this hole at Tour 8 unless you have strong headwind, then you can pick the right line.
Normally you bounce it over the bunker in the left line but it will be very hard to get a hole-in-one as the fairway os not perfectly even.
For the right line you will need a lot of backspin and also headwin to aim directly for the pin and not exceed that point and even leave the green, but no risk no gain, right? 😉
Hole 8 (Par 4)
Clubs To Use: Big Topper or Thorn
Picking the right or the left line is the normal way how you want to play this hole at Tour 8, depending on the wind and what side suits you best.
Both ways are played similar where you try to get as far on the fairway as possible and then directly go for the green in the second hit paired with backspin to head for the eagle or get at least a birdie.
The red line is more aggressive and can get you directly on the green – but you need solid tailwind at Tour 8 to make that happen. Bounce right next to the bunker and then add enough sidepsin and top spin to make it on the green. You very likely will bounce it on the rough so don’t hestitate using plenty topspin to bounce it far enough.
Hole 9 (Par 5)
Clubs To use: Big Dawg or Cataclysm
Normally you want to use a ball and club with a lot of topspin and bounce to the second fairway (left line). From there you have a great shot directly for the green where you can bounce on the rough right in front of the green.
The right line is only the right line to play if you have strong headwind and you won’t make it over the rough and bounce on the second fairway. Then you want to reach close to the end of the first fairway and then use curl to go around the trees and get close to the green.
