Achievement Guide: The Golf Club

Amateur Golfer – 10gs – Finish an 18-hole round of golf.

Just play through an entire course. You will get this while going for your FIR and GIR.

Driving The Point Home – 25gs – Drive a ball 315 yards or greater on an official course.

Course: Stone Reach Golf Links
The first hole of the Stone Reach Golf Links. Turn towards the water and line up the wind behind you. Crack it 100% and straight out over the water and you should get over 315 and the achievement. People have also said that hole number one Craggy Island Links is a good alternate spot if the wind is not favorable for you on Stone Reach.

Eagle – 15gs – Score an Eagle on an official course.

Course: Little Brook Manor
The third hole is a very short par 5. Driver off the box, and land your second on the green with a putt for Eagle. Will have to re-play the first two holes if you miss.

I’ll Take That… – 15gs – Beat a friend’s course record on any course.

Course: ANY
Glitchy in so much as their servers are complete garbage. Complete crap shoot as to whether this will unlock or not. Can be official or public course. When you select

Golf Buddy – 10gs – Play against a live rival.

Course: ANY
You need a friend who is playing the same course as you. They will show up as (LIVE) as in playing right now vs (GHOST) have already played.

Goldie Bounce – 15gs – Land on the fairway or green after striking a tree.

Course: Goldie Bounce Swags
I put a giant tree right in the middle. Done.

Give Them An Inch – 20gs – Putt a total of 1 mile.

Course: XXXXXX
You will putt about a 1000 yards a hit on this course. Whenever the ball finally stops, just hit Restart and putt again and again and again until the achievement unlocks.

Playing Favourites – 20gs – Favourite 10 courses.

While searching courses you hit the X button to Favourite a course. Do this simple act 10 times.

Party Planner – 20gs – Invite 3 unique live friends to one of your rounds.

While playing any round pause the game and go to Active Friends. Then simply invite 3 people. They do not even need to own or be playing The Golf Club.

Ace – 120gs – Score a hole-in-one on an official course.

Course: Long Pond Par 3
First hole on the Long Pond Par 3 Course. My secret is using the 8 iron, bring the shot sculptor up with the LT and moving the white line up to the top of the “A”. Course never seems to have more than 1 or 2 MPH winds so not a lot of correction needed. If you miss the shot Restart. Took probably 30 swings to get it.

Close But No Cigar – 30gs – Place the ball 1 yard from the hole from 250+ yards out, on an official course.

Course: Little Brook Manor
First hole. I hit the Sand Wedge off the tee box with shot shaping bringing it right below the 86% line. This leave me a second shot of just over 250 yards. Now line up for wind and hit a perfect shot. If it’s over a yard away, Restart Course and try again.

I Would Walk… – 30gs – Play holes totalling length of 500 miles.

Course: 500 Miles
What once was hard is now easy. Thanks to exploiting the waypoint system in The Golf Club I’ve made a 4 hole course where you do 4 1 foot putts and get 35,000 yards for it. Restart once you completed all 4 holes and the achievement should take you less than an hour. Bam did this legit and it took him over 10 hours. Sucker.

GIR Collector – 30gs – Hit all greens in regulation in one round on an official 18-hole course.

Course: Little Brook Manor
GIR is for getting to the green with 2 hits left. Meaning you need to be on the putting surface in 1 on a par 3, 2 on a par 4, and 3 on a par 5. How you get there doesn’t matter.

FIR Collector – 30gs – Hit all fairways in regulation in one round on an official 18-hole course.

Course: Little Brook Manor
FIR is for getting on the fairway your first hit on a Par 4 or 5 and getting on the green on a Par 3. If you want to be safe and just get this achievement then hit a Sand Wedge off the tee box on Par 4s and 5s and your final hole score doesn’t matter, just that you got the FIR.

KAPOW! – 50gs – Drive a ball 1,000 yards or greater.

Course: 1K Hole in One
Load up the course and you will get over 1,000 yards on the drive and possibly a hole in one. But the 1k yards is a for sure.

Build It And They Will Come – 50gs – Publish a created course.

Easy peasy. Just go to the Greg Norman Course Designer and generate any old settings, give the course a name and click Publish.

Super Ace – 100gs – Score a hole-in-one from 250+ yards.

Course: Super Ace achievement (Instant Hole-in-One)
Hit the ball 100% and it will funnel to the hole. 60% of the time it work every time.

Lucky Number Seven – 100gs – Finish a 70+ par course at par or better using only a seven iron.

Course: Lucky Number Seven Swags
You have to use the 7-iron for everything. No putter. This course is set to 7-iron length with Par 7 rating so you have a a lot of bonus strokes.

Explorer – 100gs – Play 100 unique user-created courses designed by other Members.

This wouldn’t be so bad if their search function wasn’t a complete piece of garbage. My suggestion is to work your way through the Public courses 1 page at time and favorite all the 1 hole courses. Then when you have over 100 (Due to server issues I suggest you had more than 100 to be safe.) go to your favorites and unfavorite a course to remove it from the list the next time you refresh and play it. Repeat 100ish times.

Ferret – 20gs – Hole the ball from off the green on an official course
Golden Ferret – 75gs – Hole the ball directly from a bunker on an official course.

The touch control in this game is just complete garbage. Any hole with a green side bunker is fine. The best advice I can give is on the green. Hold down RT to make you rotate faster and then hit a 100% putt to get it into the bunker. I then go for Chip shots as they allow you to swing 100%.

Pinned – 20gs – Strike the pin while the ball is airborne from the green.

Course: Flag Hit
The pin is right in front of you. Crack your tee shot right at it. If you miss just Restart.

Comeback Kid – 20gs – Finish an 18-hole course under-par having been +3 or more at hole 9.

Course: Comeback Kid Swags
The front 9 are standard par 3s. Make sure you are +3 by hole 9. The back 9 are Par 3 in length but I made them Par 7s. You should easily be negative by the end of the round.

Tour Pro – 75gs -Complete at 72+ hole Tour at or below aggregate par.

Tour: Pro Tour Swags
This is just 4 of my Comeback Kid Swags courses. You should be around -100 when you finish and get the achievement.
