A fresh 9-Hole Cup is starting and i features all the holes from Vineyard acres.

Without wasting any more time, let’s jump right into the text guides for the Vineyard Acres 9-Hole Cup.

Vineyard Acres Hole #1 (Par 4)

Drive
↩️ Spin Max Right; Max Top; Max Curl Right
⛳️ Overadjust 20%
🏐 Ball Titan (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
🏑 Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

golf clash vineyard acres 9 hole cup text guides hole 1 driveStarting this 9-Hole Cup just right with a Par 4 where you can go fro green with your drive, so use a driver with good distance as well as a ball with at least Power III.

Aim the landing position of the ball behind the rough spot next to the bunker and add curl and also overpower if you need to and you will get on the green.

 

If you do, under heavy headwind or without the required ball, not get that far you still have a comfortable spot to approach the pin from here so go for that drive.

Vineyard Acres Hole #2 (Par 3)

Drive
↩️ Spin 3 Back; Max Right
⛳️ Overadjust 20%
🏐 Ball Marlin (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
🏑 Club(s) Sniper Level 5+ (Rookie/Pro/Expert), Viper (Rookie)

golf clash vineyard acres 9 hole cup text guides hole 2Fairly decent Par 3 here and your wood club should be the one that has the best backspin. The Sniper is better when it comes to accuracy and ball guideline but without the needed backspin you shouldn’t use it.

You play near the rough line and use the sidespin to point directly towards the pin and try to hit the ball perfect with the right wind adjustment (you play downhill here, so mind the 20% extra adjustment). Overall a good chance for the hole-in-one.

Vineyard Acres Hole #3 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin Max Right; 2-4 Top; Max Curl Right 2 Top
⛳️ Overadjust 10% 0%
🏐 Ball Katana (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
🏑 Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert), Apocalypse (Pro/Expert) Backbone (Rookie)

golf clash vineyard acres 9 hole cup text guides hole 3 driveThis Par 5 is also a really great chance to albatross in the Vineyard Acres 9-Hole Cup as long as you use a ball with a lot of sidespin so you can bounce over the river with your drive.

You also need to use curl to really get far down the fairway on the other side so make sure that you have enough space to the rough line to not risk getting into the rough.

Do not use maximum sidespin, this will risk to get too far and the fairway slopes down to the left side and you can then roll into the rough. That’s why I think 4 bars should be maximum here.

A little topspin and aim straight for the pin with the second bounce on the green and this will give you the right speed to pocket the ball or, worst-case, lay next to the pin.

Vineyard Acres Hole #4 (Par 3)

Drive
↩️ Spin max 1 Back (Tailwind)
⛳️ Overadjust 15%
🏐 Ball Marlin (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
🏑 Club(s) Backbone (Rookie), Goliath (Pro/Expert) Sniper (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

golf clash vineyard acres 9 hole cup text guides hole 4You might recall this Par 3 from several Golden Shots and it’s actually also not that hard to play.

Bounce it on the fairway in front of the green and only add a little backspin if you have tailwind, otherwise no spin at all required. Aim straight for the pin and then it only depends on your wind adjustment to get the hole-in-one or not. Worst-case it’s a secure birdie in this 9-Hole-Cup, which is also alright.

Vineyard Acres Hole #5 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin 4-5 Top; Max Left; 25% Overpower 1-2 Back
⛳️ Overadjust 10% 0%
🏐 Ball Titan (Rookie/Pro/Expert)
🏑 Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/expert) Big Dawg (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

golf clash vineyard acres 9 hole cup text guides hole 5 driveWe had several easy holes so far, this Par 5 in the Vineyard Acres 9-Hole Cup is tougher.

In your drive you want to get as much distance and you need to deal with the curved fairway, so use a ball that has power and sidespin to handle that well.

Using more topspin as shown above in the table is risky, you don’t want to run over the fairway and get into the rough.

golf clash vineyard acres 9 hole cup text guides hole 5 second shotThe second shot is the tricky one here because you need to bounce it over the rough and the bunker and the distance is your biggest enemy here. A little backspin is needed to prevent that you roll all over the green.

For your shot you need to add overpower, about one quarter of the ball to get far enough to bounce over the bunker and the rough. The albatross is pretty much impossible here but with a decent second shot your can get the eagle.

Vineyard Acres Hole #6 (Par 4)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin 3-4 Top; 2-3 Right 3 Back; 2-3 Left
⛳️ Overadjust 10% -10%
🏐 Ball Marlin (Rookie), Quasar (Pro/Expert)
🏑 Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Experte), Quarterback (Pro/Expert) Sniper Level 4+ (Rookie/Pro/Expert); Viper (Rookie)

golf clash vineyard acres 9 hole cup text guides hole 6 driveI really recommend you to play this hole here on the right-hand side, it makes it easier.

The drive is fairly easy, some topspin and sidespin and you want to lay the ball up in a good spot, no need to risk some extra yards or go all-in here, just make sure to stay away from the rough with some sidespin and you’re good to go.

This will give you a nice chance for the eagle.

Vineyard Acres Hole #7 (Par 3)

Drive
↩️ Spin 1-2 Back
⛳️ Overadjust 10%
🏐Ball Marlin (Rookie), Quasar (Pro/Expert)
🏑 Club(s) Backbone (Rookie) Sniper (Pro/Expert)

golf clash vineyard acres 9 hole cup text guides hole 7This is another easy Par 3 here in the Vineyard Acres 9-Hole Cup, although it may look more difficult.

You don’t need any sidespin and only a little backspin and the only important thing you need to make sure is that you make your second bounce on the fringe.

When can make that sure you have the perfect speed and then you only need to get the wind adjustment right to make your hole-in-one 🙂

Vineyard Acres Hole #8 (Par 4)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin 4-5 Top; Max Right; Max Curl Right Max Back
⛳️ Overadjust 10% 0%
🏐 Ball Katana (Rookie), KIngmaker (Pro/Expert)
🏑 Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Big Dawg (Rookie); Guardian (Pro/Expert)

golf clash vineyard acres 9 hole cup text guides hole 8 driveThe hard thing with the drive is that you need to get around that corner as much as possible but the fairway slopes down to the left side, so curl is mandatory here to get somewhat the right direction.

Don’t use too much topspin here or you might end up getting further away from the green than intended and be cautious about the curl that you don’t aim too close to the rough line. You still need to stay close to the rough line to not let the sloping fairway make your ball bounce to the left side.

golf clash vineyard acres 9 hole cup text guides hole 8 second shotIf you have the Guardian, use it here for the heavy backspin that let you aim straight for the pin.

With another club like the Big Dawg (that you otherwise need because of the distance), you need to aim that you bounce on the other way of the green and the ball will slope down on the fringe where you can then go for the birdie.

Vineyard Acres Hole #9 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin 2-3 Top; Max Right Max Top
⛳️ Overadjust 10% 0%
🏐 Ball Titan (Rookie/Pro/Expert)
🏑 Club(s) Quarterback (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Big Dawg (Rookie), Guardian (Pro/Expert)

golf clash vineyard acres 9 hole cup text guides hole 9 driveThis Par 5 is about aiming for the birdie, it’s practically impossible to albatross and even the eagle is really tough to get.

In your drive you lay up in front of the rough to get a good spot for your second shot, nothing more. Don’t squeeze the extra yards and risk getting into the rough, conservative play is alright here.

golf clash vineyard acres 9 hole cup text guides hole 9 second shotIn your second shot you want to get as much distance as possible to get beyond the trees that otherwise will block your path in your thrid shot to go for the green.

Use as much topspin with a wood club that has the highest distance as you can and play it straight through that curvy part of fairway.

  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

    • 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.
