Without wasting any more time, let’s jump right into the text guides for the Ventura Open Tournament.

Santa Ventura Hole #1 (Par 4)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin 3-4 Top; Max Right & Little Curl
⛳️ Overadjust 10% 0%
? Ball Quasar (Rookie), Katana (Pro/Expert), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
? Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert), Quarterback (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Hornet (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

golf clash ventura open tournament hole 1 santa ventura driveYou want to use a ball with good sidespin for your drive to get it rolling in the right direction and this will not only get your further down the fairway, it will also get you closer towards the pin for your second shot so don’t be cheap with the ball here in the first hole of the Ventura Open Tournament.

Other than that, put in some good topspin to get as far as possible without risking getting into the rough and you’re good to go for your second shot. You can also add a little curl to the right.

golf clash ventura open tournament hole 1 santa ventura second shotIf you reached far enough down the fairway you’re in a great position to actually approach the pin directly in your second shot and if you have the right short iron you have a decent chance for the eagle here.

I really recommend not to go with backspin here because the green is not even and rather bounce it on the fairway in front of the green and let it roll towards the pin without adding any spin. You still can miss but, in my opinion, chances are a lot better this way.

Santa Ventura Hole #2 (Par 3)

Drive
↩️ Spin 4-5 Back
⛳️ Overadjust 20%
?  Ball Marlin (Rookie), Quasar (Pro/Expert)
? Club(s) Backbone (Rookie) Sniper (Pro/Expert), Guardian (Pro/Expert)

golf clash ventura open tournament hole 2 santa venturaYou need a decent amount of backspin for this Par 3 in the Ventura Open Tournament so take the right club here or you might come in too hot and if you miss the pin you have an unnecessary second shot from maybe the fringe or fairway behind the pin.

If you don’t have that you can also bounce the ball on the fairway but that’s not that even so you might miss here.

The shot itself is really straightforward by bouncing on the fringe and let the ball guideline direct right towards the pin and add the backspin and you’ll be fine.

Santa Ventura Hole #3 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin 2-5 Top; Max Left
⛳️ Overadjust 10% 0%
? Ball Quasar (Rookie), Titan (Pro/Expert)
? Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Goliath (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Sniper (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

golf clash ventura open tournament hole 2 santa ventura driveFor the drive you should use a ball with a good amount of sidespin so you can get around that corner on the fairway and reach further down without having to use much curl.

If you do have at least 4 bars of sidespin you don’t need any curl and you can simply add in more topspin to gain more distance with your drive here – and gaining that distance will help you a lot reaching the green in your second shot.

golf clash ventura open tournament hole 2 santa ventura second shotIn your second shot you can theoretically go for the albatross but it’s really hard as the green and the fairway are anything but even at this area, but you can get close towards the pin for the secure eagle here on this Par 5 in the Ventura Open Tournament.

Using a wood here with a good ball guideline helps a lot and you don’t need any spin with this shot as long as you make sure that your second bounce will on the fairway right in front of the fringe.

Santa Ventura Hole #4 (Par 3)

Drive
↩️ Spin 2 Top; 2 Right
⛳️ Overadjust 10%
? Ball Marlin (Rookie), Quasar (Pro/Expert)
? Club(s) Backbone (Rookie) Sniper (Pro/Expert)

golf clash ventura open tournament hole 4 santa venturaThis is a fairly easy Par 3 here in the Venture Open Tournament and you should use the long iron with the best accuracy you have to get the best chances for the hole-in-one.

You want to bounce over the bunker here so you will need a little topspin to make the ball bounce that far and with the green elevating as well you should have that little extra power here. Another aspect is that if you have no topspin you could roll back and have an ugly second shot and that’s not what you want, right?

So, then aim directly for the pin and do a perfect shot.

Santa Ventura Hole #5 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin Max Top; Max Left + Max Curl Left Max Right
⛳️ Overadjust 10% 0%
?  Ball Titan (Rookie/Pro/Expert), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
? Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Big Dawg (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

golf clash ventura open tournament hole 5 santa ventura driveThe drive here can be tricky if you haven’t levels up your driver decently because you might be too short and need to overpower your drive. It’s important that you use a Power III ball to reach far enough down on the fairway but also for your second shot to get on the green.

If you can’t reach over the river with your drive, bounce on the fairway in front of it and add as much sidespin to the left and topspin as you can and add max curl to the left as well.

You need to avoid to get close to the other side of the fairway or the trees will be in your way and you can’t reach the green in your second shot so pay close attention to that and if you don’t have the sidespin and curl on your driver, rather think about going a little shorter with topspin.

golf clash ventura open tournament hole 5 santa ventura second shotWith your second shot you want to get on the green and as close towards the pin as possible so use a wood club with good distance and add all the sidespin to the right to get in the direction of the pin. There’s no need to use topspin here (unless you got really short with your drive) or you will risk getting over the green. The green slopes down towards the pin so getting on the green will get you in the right speed automatically.

 

Santa Ventura Hole #6 (Par 4)

Drive
↩️ Spin 3 Back; Max Left; 50% Curl Left
⛳️ Overadjust 10%
? Ball Titan (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
? Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

This Par 3 here in the Ventura Open Tournament is really interesting as you can reach the green with your drive when you’re able to use a Power III ball.

golf clash ventura open tournament hole 6 santa venturaYou will use the left fairway spot between the trees to directly bounce on the green and the backspin will help you to stay on the green and not to roll into the rough on the other side of the green.

I highly recommend you to practice this shot before the tournament or before doing in in the tournament to make sure you don’t do this the first time here.

But that’s a great way for a secure eagle here at this Par 4.

Santa Ventura Hole #7 (Par 3)

Drive
↩️ Spin 2-3 Back
⛳️ Overadjust 10%
? Ball Quasar (Rookie/Pro/Expert)
? Club(s) Backbone (Rookie) Sniper (Pro/Expert)

golf clash ventura open tournament hole 7 santa venturaYou can’t really expect to get the hole-in-one here in this Par 3 in the Ventura Open Tournament unless you’re really lucky to adjust the wind just right.

You need to use a little backspin and aim directly for the pin via the small fairway spot on the right side and I also find it helpful to use a ball that reduces wind a little bit, but that’s optional.

Santa Ventura Hole #8 (Par 4)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin Max Right 1-2 Back
⛳️ Overadjust 10% 10%
?  Ball Titan (Rookie/Pro/Expert)
? Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Backbone (Rookie), Goliath (Pro/Expert)

golf clash ventura open tournament hole 8 santa ventura drivePlay this hole on the right side and with a good amount of sidespin you can directly go down the fairway spot there to get a nice spot for your second shot, no need to add any topspin or backspin.

The fairway slopes up a little bit so you won’t get too far unless you add topspin.

golf clash ventura open tournament hole 8 santa ventura second shotWith your second shot you can directly approach the pin now and even though it’s hard it’s possible to get the eagle here.

You want to use a little backspin and make the second bounce here be on the fringe, this will give us the right amount of speed and you have the birdie secured in the worst-case.

It’s a Par 4 where you can catch up with the score here in the Ventura Open Tournament as many do play it on the left side.

Santa Ventura Hole #9 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin 3-4 Top; Max Left; Max Curl Left 3-4 Back; 2-3 Left; 50% Curl Left
⛳️ Overadjust 10% -10%
? Ball Titan (Rookie/Pro/Expert), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
? Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie), Quarterback (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Big Dawg (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

golf clash ventura open tournament hole 9 santa ventura driveFor the drive here it helps a lot to have a driver with curl so take one like the Quarterback if you have it at a decent level to get the ball into the top left corner.

You can see in the image your aiming position how it should look like when you can use a good amount of curl – otherwise, you should use some backspin to not get into the rough island there.

This is a really tricky spot but gaining the distance here helps a lot for the second shot.

golf clash ventura open tournament hole 9 santa ventura second shotFor your second shot you will need to curl around the trees so take a wood club with a good amount of curl here as well.

Your goal here should be to get the ball on the green and not approaching the pin, that would be such a hero shot and you should rather take the secure eagle instead of messing here.

That’s it, good luck with the Ventura Open Tournament and have a great day 🙂

  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.
