To give you some extra help, here are my text guides. 🙂

Maple Bay Hole #1 (Par 4)

↩️ Spin 1 Left; 2-3 Back
⛳️ Overadjust 15% (Rookie), 20% (Pro/Expert)
🏐 Ball Marlin (Rookie) Katana (Pro/Expert)
🏑 Club(s) Backbone, Grizzly (Rookie) Sniper 4+ (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

golf clash st patricks day tournament text guide drumore links hole 1 aimYou want to use the right side of the fairway here and aim directly for the pin after you added the sidespin to the left, as you can see in the image.

This is actually a very easy hole in the Maple Bay 9-Hole Cup and getting a hole-in-one isn’t that hard if you can do the over-adjustment right for playing downhill here.

Maple Bay Hole #2 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin 3 Top ,2 Left 3 Back, Max Right
⛳️ Overadjust 20% 0%
🏐 Ball Katana (Rookie/Pro/Expert)
🏑 Club(s) Quarterback/Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Viper (Rookie), Sniper 6+ (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

golf clash euro champions tournament text guides hole 9 driveThe drive here looks a little bit intimidating at first, but you can easily do it with a driver like the Quarterback that gives you a good ball guideline and topspin that will let you easily get over that bunker and far down the fairway for a good position for your second shot.

Don’t use too much topspin or you might get into the rough there!

You need some solid backspin here to prevent coming in too hot and all the sidespin you can get to get the ball as close to the pin on the green. Don’t think you can get the albatross here, that’s extremely hard here.

Maple Bay Hole #3 (Par 3)

↩️ Spin Max Back, 1 Right
⛳️ Overadjust 20%
🏐 Ball Marlin (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert
🏑 Club(s) Guardian (Rookie) Sniper (Pro/Expert)

golf clash euro champions tournament text guides hole 8The best way to play this Par 3 in the Maple Bay 9-Hole Cup will be using a wood club that will give you a lot of backspin. The reason is that the fairway in front of the green is really bumpy and you can’t consistently approach the pin with bouncing multiple times in front of the green.

Rather bounce it once just before the fringe and use all the backspin you have to get the ball into the direction of the pin. It’s not easy to get the hole-in-one here but this way will give you the best chances.

Maple Bay Hole #4 (Par 4)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin 4 Top, 2 Left 2 Top, Max Left
⛳️ Overadjust 10% 5%
🏐 Ball Basic, Titan (Rookie), Katana, Berserker (Pro/Expert
🏑 Club(s) Backbone, Sniper (Rookie), Grizzly, Sniper (Pro/Expert) Backbone, Sniper (Rookie), Grizzly, Sniper (Pro/Expert)

There are two ways to play this hole. The first one is a little conservative method through which you can give yourself a chance for eagle. The further up you go on the fairway, the flatter the ball guideline tends to be. This will offer you a firm spot for the second shot.


For the second shot, you might have to face a rough bump to the pin. I recommend using a long iron that can give you perfect accuracy. This can surely help you in getting the shot to drop for an eagle.

The other way to play this shot is to go in a little aggressive. You can opt for the Bersheker for this shot. The spin value for this shot remains the same as the drive shot for the previous method. Keep the adjustment at 10% and do not use any curls. Just try to hit perfect and you might score an eagle for this hole.

Maple Bay Hole #5 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin 2 Left, 1 Top 4 Back
⛳️ Overadjust 10% 10%
🏐 Ball Titan (Rookie), Titan, Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
🏑 Club(s)  Big Dawg (Rookie), Guardian/Sniper (Pro/Expert)  Big Dawg (Rookie), Guardian/Sniper (Pro/Expert)

For the drive, it is wise to go for a Titan ball, a power 3 ball in particular. Get the ball guideline pointing down the fairway. You want to get the ball down to the fairway as much as possible. If you feel that you are comfortable with a power 4 or power 5 ball, you can certainly do that. Keep in mind that this shot depends on a lot of curl.

For the second shot, you want to aim for the top of the green. Use 4 – 6 bars of backspin to the left of the pin. Overadjust the shot with approx. 10% and you will be good to go.

Maple Bay Hole #6 (Par 3)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin 2-3 Top Max Right; 1-2 Top
⛳️ Overadjust 10% -10%
🏐 Ball Titan (Rookie/Pro/Expert), Kingmaker (Rookie/Pro/Expert)
🏑 Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert), Quarterback (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Big Dawg (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

golf clash st patricks day tournament text guide drumore links hole 3 driveDon’t do any fancy trick shots here, you want to get your ball as close to the rough here as possible and there’s no way you can get it over that without using heavy overpower (risky!).

The reason why you also don’t want to play the right side is that you would need a lot of curl and it’s less consistent than simply playing the straightforward route.

golf clash st patricks day tournament text guide drumore links hole 3 second shotFor the second shot, you want to attempt the green and you need distance to do that, so take the wood with the highest distance (like The Big Dawg) to get this done.

Use all the sidespin to the right and a little topspin and make your second bounce on the fairway and this will get you on the green or very close to it so you have a great chance to get the eagle here. The albatross is extremely hard due to the lack of sidespin that you would need and curl is extremely risky here.

Still, quite an easy hole in the Maple Bay 9-Hole Cup 🙂

Maple Bay Hole #7 (Par 4)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin 3 Top, 3 Left 4 Back
⛳️ Overadjust 10% 10%
🏐 Ball Marlin/Quasar (Rookie), Quasar/Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
🏑 Club(s)  Thorn/Backbone (Rookie), Thorn/Saturn (Pro/Expert)  Big Dawg (Rookie), Guardian/Sniper (Pro/Expert)

In this par 4, you have a good chance for eagle. I recommend using a power 1 ball for Rookie division and power 3+ ball for pro/expert. You want to use 3 bars of topspin and 3 bars of leftspin. You will need to maintain an overadjustment of approx 10% for the drive shot.

For the second shot, you want to go for a 10% overadjustment. Aim it right and you can get an eagle in this hole of the Maple Bay 9-Hole Cup.

Maple Bay Hole #8 (Par 3)

↩️ Spin 3 Top, 3 Left
⛳️ Overadjust 30%
🏐 Ball Navigator/Quasar (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
🏑 Club(s)  Goliath (Rookie), Sniper/Guardian (Pro/Expert)

golf clash pacific cup tournament hole 5 maple bay shot 1This is also a tricky shot like the other Par 3 in the Maple Bay 9-Hole Cup because you need to play it massively downhill and you need to adjust 30% extra because of that.

The shot itself will be aimed towards the pin with about 3 bars of backspin and the sidespin to the right that you need to aim for the pin – normally also about 3 bars.

The second bounce should be on the green and this will give you, along with the backspin mentioned above, the right amount of speed when approaching the pin.

Maple Bay – Hole #9 (Par 5)

↩️ Spin 3 Top, Max Right 4 Top 2 Left
⛳️ Overadjust 0% 10%
🏐 Ball Titan (Rookie), Titan, Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
🏑 Club(s) Big Dawg (Rookie), Big Dawg/Cataclysm, Sniper(Pro/Expert) Big Dawg (Rookie), Big Dawg/Cataclysm, Sniper(Pro/Expert)

golf clash pacific cup tournament hole 9 maple bay shot 1You really want to play this one on the right side and use a Titan Ball here to get the extra power you need.

The drive is a little bit tricky because you want to use a double bounce to get over the rough, this only requires you some overpowering – if you want to do it with one single bounce you need max overpower and we all know how risky that can be 🙂

When approaching the pin you want to use about 3 bars of topspin along with some serious sidespin to the left to adjust with how the ground is shaped around the green.

That’s it, good luck with this tournament and see you on the green 🙂

  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.
