Easter 9-Hole Cup Tournament (April 9th, 2020)

For easter we have a 9-hole cup which will only last 3 days and is shorter and we will play the whole Southern Pines course for this mini tournament.

As always I have here full text guides for all holes that you can use to practice and during the Easter 9-Cup Tournament.

Southern Pines Hole #1 (Par 4)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩ī¸ Spin 4-5 Top 2 Top
â›ŗī¸ Overadjust 10% 0%
🏐 Ball Any (Rookie), Titan (Pro/Expert)
🏒 Club(s) Extra Mile or Quarterback (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Viper (Rookie), Sniper (Rookie), Goliath (Pro/Expert)

golf clash easter 9-hole cup southern pines hole 1 driveIf you really want to play this one here aggressively you can go on the right side and bounce over the water but this requires overpower and a Power III ball. I’d rather recommend you to actually go on the left lane and get close to the pin in your second shot to go with the birdie here or get a lucky eagle.

For that reason play it safe on the left side with some topspin to get close to the end of the fairway and you have a good spot for your second hit.

golf clash easter 9-hole cup southern pines hole 1 second shotIn your second hit you want to aim right of the pin as the green slopes down to the left and you don’t want your ball to go too far away from the pin to get your secure birdie here. It’s extremely hard to get the eagle because it’s almost impossible to predict the sloping down correctly, so don’t be disappointed here and get the birdie.

Southern Pines Hole #2 (Par 3)

Drive
↩ī¸ Spin Max Right & 50% Curl Right
â›ŗī¸ Overadjust 10%
🏐  Ball Quasar (Rookie), Katana (Pro/Expert)
🏒 Club(s) Viper (Rookie) Sniper (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

We’ve seen this hole a couple of times in other tournaments and you might recall it from the 3rd Anniversary Tournament recently. A hole-in-one is a gamble at this hole is always a gamble and so it is in the Easter 9-Hole Cup Tournament as well 🙁

golf clash 3rd anniversary tournament hole 1 southern pines shotYou will need to make the ball roll back plus add curl so there’s no way to give you a perfect shot instruction in my text guide at all – but I can give you the best way to play this hole.

So, you want to make it bounce on the fairway and add as much sidespin to the right as you can get (try to use a ball like Katana with Side Spin III). There’s no need to add any backspin or front spin, the sidespin is enough.

When doing your shot you will use something around 50% curl to the right as well and this will land you next to the pin or maybe the hole-in-one with some luck 🙂

Southern Pines Hole #3 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩ī¸ Spin Max Top + Max Overpower Max Top + 50% Overpower
â›ŗī¸ Overadjust 10% 0%
🏐 Ball Titan (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
🏒 Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert), Big Topper (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Big Dawg (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

This Par 5 in the Easter 9-Hole Cup Tournament is all about distance so pack the driver and the clubs with the best distance possible into your bag as well as a Power III ball.

golf clash easter 9-hole cup southern pines hole 3 driveYour drive is nothing else than doing maximum distance with full topspin and overpower to get as far as possible.

This sounds tough but as the fairway is pretty big you can’t actually mess something up here and you won’t exceed the fairway anyway so don’t be shy and give it all the distance you can in your drive while aiming to the center of the fairway.

golf clash easter 9-hole cup southern pines hole 3 second shotIn your second shot you will very likely be too short to bounce straight over the bunker to aim to the right side and hope that you roll onto the green.

You will do that by using maximum distance with maximum topspin plus about 50% overpower and hope for the best. Normally you can make it close to the green and have a nice chance for the eagle here.

Southern Pines Hole #4 (Par 4)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩ī¸ Spin Max Top; Max Right; Curl Right 1 Back, Max Left
â›ŗī¸ Overadjust 10% 0%
🏐 Ball Titan (Rookie/Pro/Expert)
🏒 Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert), Quarterback (Rookie) Viper (Rookie), Big Dawg (Rookie), Sniper (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

golf clash 3rd anniversary tournament hole 2 southern pines driveAnother tricky hole in the Eater 9-Hole Cup. In this hole you really want to get over to the right lane, no matter what the wind is doing. This will make your second shot a lot better and you don’t need to make a tricky rough bounce or anything later.

So, add all the topspin and sidespin to the right 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 Titan to get additional power, with a normal ball you need to take the left lane.

If there’s additional wind from the right you want to use a good amount of curl to the right to adjust for that as well, just make sure you don’t get stuck in that bunker!

golf clash 3rd anniversary tournament hole 2 southern pines second shotNow you can approach the pin directly and I would use some backspin and all the sidespin to the left to compensate for the sloping green so you can compensate the first bounce.

In terms of aiming you should bounce the ball so the second bounce is on the green and directly aims at the pin.

With the backspin that I recommended you won’t get too hot and if you don’t get the eagle you will still have a birdie for sure 🙂

Southern Pines Hole #5 (Par 3)

Drive
↩ī¸ Spin 2-3 Back; Max Left; Curl Left
â›ŗī¸ Overadjust 10%
🏐  Ball Katana (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
🏒 Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie) Quarterback (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

This is a super-weird Par 3 here in the Eater 9-Hole Cup Tournament because you will need to use a driver to actually approach the pin.

golf clash easter 9-hole cup southern pines hole 5The tough spot here is that you either need to play the tiny island with fairway inside the lake (which is super risky) or play a guessing game with rolling down the green. I really recommend you to not play the fairway island because failing here will just give you a failed Par 3 and a secure birdie is way better.

Use the driver with the highest amount of curl here and you will get on the green and have your birdie.

Southern Pines Hole #6 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩ī¸ Spin 1-3 Back (Depends on wind), Max Right 4-5 Top; Max Right; Max Curl Right, 50% Overpower
â›ŗī¸ Overadjust 10% 10%
🏐 Ball Titan (Rookie/Pro/Expert)
🏒 Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Big Dawg (Rookie/Pro/Expert), Sniper (Pro/Expert)

golf clash easter 9-hole cup southern pines hole 6 driveAlso here I recommend you to not risk everything to get a chance for the albatross and rather take the secure eagle by playing on the left side in the beginning.

Here you want to get as far on the fairway as possible without risking to get into the rough by adding some backspin as well and you have a good spot for your second hit.

golf clash easter 9-hole cup southern pines hole 6 second shotIn your second hit you will need a club with distance like the Big Dawg and use a good amount of topspin as well as all the sidespin to the right you can get.

Don’t risk playing through the trees here, this can go horribly wrong and an eagle is a solid outcome for this hole in the Easter 9-Hole Cup! Rather use the topspin, sidespin, curl and some overpower to play around the trees and get the ball onto the green.

Southern Pines Hole #7 (Par 4)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩ī¸ Spin Max Top; Max Right 3 Back; Max Right; 50% Curl Right
â›ŗī¸ Overadjust 10% -10%
🏐 Ball Marlin (Rookie), Katana (Pro/Expert), Titan (Pro/Expert)
🏒 Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Viper (Rookie), Sniper (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

golf clash easter 9-hole cup southern pines hole 7 driveThis 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 Easter 9-Hole Cup

The drive is on a wide fairway with maximum topspin and maximum sidespin to the right to gain distance and that’s it. There’s no way to cross the water here so don’t try to and play it on the left lane.

golf clash easter 9-hole cup southern pines hole 7 second shotYour second shot COULD get you an eagle but your primary goal should be to get it as close towards the pin as possible by aiming in a way that will get the second bounce on the fringe so the ball will roll towards the pin as you can see in the image.

Add about 50% Curl to the right as well and you should come in pretty well.

Southern Pines Hole #8 (Par 3)

Drive
↩ī¸ Spin 1-2 Top
â›ŗī¸ Overadjust 10%
🏐  Ball Quasar (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
🏒 Club(s) Viper (Rookie), Sniper (Rookie) Quarterback (Pro/Expert)

golf clash easter 9-hole cup southern pines hole 8The Par 3 are not easy at all in the Eater 9-Hole Cup Tournament and this one is as the other ones – hard to get a hole-in-one…

The green is bumpy and slopes so play it by bouncing on the fairway as you can see in the image with a little bit of backspin and it will slope towards the pin.

The positive thing here is that even if you come in a little bit too hot you will get worst-case on the fringe next to the pin and still get your birdie.

Southern Pines Hole #9 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩ī¸ Spin Max Top; Max Top; Max Right
â›ŗī¸ Overadjust 10% 5%
🏐 Ball Titan (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
🏒 Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert), Big Topper (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Big Dawg (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

golf clash 3rd anniversary tournament hole 3 southern pines driveAnother hole that is all about distance and if you manage to gain enough distance in your drive you will have your eagle safe.

So, you will choose the driver with the highest distance and topspin and also use a ball that gives you power and bounce over the bunker and add all the topspin that you can.

You need to get to about the same height as the trees there so you will be able to get on the green in your second shot.

golf clash 3rd anniversary tournament hole 3 southern pines second shotIn your second shot you also have a tricky shot but this will get you on the green if you don’t mess up.

Add all the topspin and sidespin to the right and aim so you will make your first bounce on the fairway and the second one in the rough.

The plan here is to make it roll out of the rough and either get on the green, the fringe or really close to it so you can get your eagle in the next 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?
    Thanks

  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
