Spring Major Tournament Text Guide (April 12th, 2021)

Quite frequently you will see new tournaments showing up in Golf Clash and they do give you the option to win great prizes and new banners for your profile.

An important part of each single tournament is preparation so I will always update this page here with the next upcoming tournament as well as tips to the included courses and how to play them best.

Spring Major Tournament (April 12th, 2021)

Spring Major Tournament

Here’s another tournament coming your way. The Spring Major Tournament has a whole new course for you to play.

As always, I have here full text guides for all holes that you can use to practice.

Chateau Lavande Hole #1 (Par 4)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin 4-5 Top, 4-5 Left
⛳️ Overadjust
Ball Katana (Rookie), Katana, Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
Club(s) Thorn, Hornet, Apocalypse (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

If you really want to play this one here aggressively you can go for the bushes in between the center. I’d rather recommend you to use a driver that offers at least 225 yards of power. Combine it with all left spin and aim to the left of the fairway.

This way, you will secure a good spot for your second hit.

Chateau Lavande Hole #2 (Par 3)

Drive 2nd shot
↩️ Spin 2 Back 3-4 Back
⛳️ Overadjust 15%
Ball Quasar (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
Club(s) Backbone, Goliath (Rookie) Sniper (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

You will need to look for the sticky spot toplay this shot. Apply the right amount of spin and play with a long iron with approx. 2 bars of backspin. This is the best way to play this shot.

There’s no need to add any sidespin or front spin, the backspin is enough.

There is a great opportunity for a hole in one here. Just make sure to aim correct and you are good to go.

Chateau Lavande Hole #3 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin Max Top + Max Left 4-5 Top
⛳️ Overadjust 20% 0%
Ball Titan (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
Club(s) Goliath (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Grizly, Sniper (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

This is one of the most interesting holes in the tournament. Use a driver with minimum 230 yards of power. Combine this with a Power 3 ball and you will be on your way to get a good position for the second shot.


In your second shot, you will very likely be attempt a rough bump. Get a topspin depending on the wind angle. In general, it will be around 4-5 bars topspin..

Chateau Lavande Hole #4 (Par 3)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin 6 Top
⛳️ Overadjust 10%
Ball Kingmaker, Wind 5 (Rookie/Pro/Expert)
Club(s) Sniper, Quarterback (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

In this hole, you really want to use the fairway just above the bunker. This is a perfect spot for getting the ball into the pin

Add 6 bars of topspin so that you can get and bounce over that rough part like you can see it in the image. Also, make sure to use a ball like the Kingmaker to get additional power.

Chateau Lavande Hole #5 (Par 4)

↩️ Spin Max Top, Max Left
⛳️ Overadjust 0% 0%
Ball Katana (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
Club(s) Thorn, Backbone  (Rookie), Grizzly (Pro/Expert) Thorn, Backbone  (Rookie), Grizzly (Pro/Expert)

I really recommend you to not play with a driver with minimum 225 yards of power combined with a Power 3+ ball. Add max topspin and sidespin to the left. This will set you up for a better position while playing the second shot.

In the second shot, you can play with a short iron from a maximum distance. The shot will be played uphill and therefore it has to be under-adjusted.

Chateau Lavande Hole #6 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin Max Top, Max Right 3 Top, 3 Back
⛳️ Overadjust 10% 30%
Ball Titan (Rookie/Pro/Expert)
Club(s) Big Dawg (Rookie/Pro/Expert), Sniper (Pro/Expert) Big Dawg (Rookie/Pro/Expert), Sniper (Pro/Expert)

Here I recommend you to use a Power 3+ ball and a driver that gives you the most power. Add max topspin and combine it with enough sidespin to the right. Use max overpower with this shot, no matter the wind strength.

In your second hit, use a sniper. Get the ball to bounce on the fairway using all from 3 bars of topspin to 3 bars of sidespin.


Chateau Lavande Hole #7 (Par 3)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin Max Top; Max Right
⛳️ Overadjust
Ball Navigator, Quasar (Rookie), Kingmaker, Wind 5 (Pro/Expert)
Club(s) Sniper, Guardian (Rookie) Quarterback, The Rock (Pro/Expert) Sniper, Guardian (Rookie) Quarterback, The Rock (Pro/Expert)

This is a very conservative hole here that you play simply straightforward to have the best chances for the eagle and a secure birdie in the Spring Major Tournament.

The rough bump is the best option to play this hole. However, you have to be careful as you can miss the rough if you don’t get the adjustment correct.

Chateau Lavande Hole #8 (Par 4)

↩️ Spin 4-5 Top
⛳️ Overadjust 25%
Ball Quasar (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
Club(s) Thorn, Backbone (Rookie), Thorn, Grizzly (Pro/Expert) Thorn, Backbone (Rookie), Thorn, Grizzly (Pro/Expert)

Use 4 to 5 bars of topspin to get the ball to as much as possible on the fairway. This will give you a great opportunity to adjust the shot for the pin in the second hit.

For the second shot, I recommend you to play with a short iron or a long iron. Go for a rough bump or attack the pin directly. Either way, you will have to bear in mind that this shot is played downhill and hence you have to adjust the shot accordinly.

Chateau Lavande Hole #9 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin Max Top 3-4 Back
⛳️ Overadjust 10% 10%
Ball Titan (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
Club(s) Sniper, Horizon, Backbone (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Sniper, Horizon, Backbone (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

Another hole that is all about distance and if you manage to gain enough distance in your drive you will have your eagle safe. Aim to get as much distance as possible on the fairway.

In your second shot, use a wood club. Horizon could be a good option for this shot.

Albatross is extremely difficult here so focus on getting close to the green and the pin.

  1. Hello there,
    What is meant by Silver State?
    Is state is as in one of the US states “the silver country” or it’s meant to describe a condition “the silver condition”?
    Kindly advise!

  2. On the St. Patrick Tournament 2020.

    I think there’s a mistake on Drumore Links Hole #6 (Par 5)
    It should be 20% 1st shot and 20% 2nd shot (not 20/-10)
    Can you confirm?

  3. Love your site. Wish I could print them but the ads are just too much. Thanks for the info though. I’d rather pay you and lose the ads.

    • Thanks 🙂 I wanted to have this info out for everyone for free rather than charging for it, so ads are a part. You can use an ad blocker if you want to 😉
      You can just print this page in your browser, should work just fine without paying

    • When playing downhill you need to adjust wind more as the ball has mor time to get affected by the wind. If you would normally adjust 2 rings, here you need to adjust 2.2 rings 🙂

  4. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this text guide. I have never had it so straightforward, comfortable and thrilled playing in a tourney, like I did today.

  5. How are you doing big boss! I would love, love, to see wind charts like that with adjustment (Ball Wind Resistance, Playing Downhill, etc.) for all the shots. Thank you for your service!

  6. Thanks big boss for the Vineyard tournament text guide! Does Tommy Golf use it to prepare his YouTube tutorials? I could not help but notice the uncanny similarity of his vineyard rookie tutorial, which came out later, including the use of similar phraseology to your work.

    Kind regards.

  7. Sequoia Creek Hole #9 (Par 5) Drive straight through the trees over the bunker onto the Right Fairway and you will find yourself with and Albatross chance and a guaranteed Eagle

    • I double checked, everything is there… “You really want to play the drive on the left side to get into a position that can get you to the green in your second shot. The islands looks intimidating but it’s actually not that difficult to land on. You need to bounce over that bunker there with a small backspin to make the ball stop and good sidespin to the left to get a nice line. In your second shot you can now approach the green but aiming for the albatross here is really difficult as the fairway slopes at the middle point giving the ball a different direction from just hitting one inch more to the right or left. Aim a little to the right of the pin as the green slopes down towards the pin, this will be better when you want to get lucky for the albatross. Use some topspin to get uphill here.”

  8. Hole #5 and Hole #6 are switched in the tournament. It messed me up a bit on qualifying. Other than that, I appreciate everything you do : ) .

  9. I’m “assuming” this is for Pro/Expert, from the middle tee box, because I didn’t see any mention of which division this is for.
