|Complete the Caribbean course under par.|
|After selecting a game type (quick play, cup, stroke play, etc.) select the course "Caribbean" and then select "All Holes" as the holes you want to play. There are 18 holes total, you won't have to be under par on all of them but at the end of the 18th you'll have to be under par.|
For those of you who don't know how golf works, your aim is to stay as far under par as possible by taking as few strokes as possible to get your golf ball into the hole. You're expected to get your golf ball onto the green by using woods (drivers) and irons. The game plays mostly by asking you to aim your ball and then you'll hit to start your swing. Hit again when the bar is as close to full (or wherever you want to hit it) to control the power and distance of your swing. Once the bar comes back to the other side you'll have to hit again as you pass over the white bar that marked where you began.
Finishing under par means that you have a score of at most -1 (0 is par and doesn't count.)
The Caribbean is the easier of the two courses. It's mainly a forest-ish course with a lot of water in most of the levels. Sometimes you'll be expected to hit over the water so keep your shots sensible and avoid falling into the rough or water.
Here are the par scores for all the holes in the Caribbean course.
Par over all 18 holes is a total of 75 strokes. So you'll have to take only 74 or fewer to pick up the achievement.
See the achievement "Parkland Challenge" for some general tips on how to play the game.
|Complete the Parkland course under par.||(2)|
|After selecting a game type (quick play, cup, stroke play, etc.) select the course "Parkland" and then select "All Holes" as the holes you want to play. There are 18 holes total, you won't have to be under par on all of them but at the end of the 18th you'll have to be under par.|
The Parkland course is much harder than the Caribbean and is actually rather difficult to score under par on unless you know how to play the game well. Here are some tips that will hopefully help you out.
That's about all I can tell you in terms of general tips. As you play through the holes you will become a better player and eventually getting birdies on most of the holes and eagles on the rest will be a cakewalk.
As far as par goes here are the par scores for the different holes.
Par over all 18 holes is a total of 90 strokes. So you'll have to take only 89 or fewer to pick up the achievement.
See the achievement "Caribbean Challenge" for info on how to play golf.
|Grab a Cup||20|
|Win a game in cup mode.|
|From the main menu go to "Play" and then select "Cup" to start a cup match. From here select whichever level you want (I prefer Caribbean as it's easier) and then select however many holes you want to play (select random and set it to four if you want to finish faster.)|
Cup is played like a normal golf championship. There are 10 golfers who will all compete to get the lowest score over the course of however many holes you picked to play. For the most part it's just like playing by yourself and trying to score under par except now you have to score under whatever the best guy has. Usually the computer players will never end up with anything better than -2 so as long as you play well enough to get a few birdies you should be fine.
See the achievements "Caribbean Challenge" for how to play golf and "Parkland Challenge" for how to play golf well.
|Bag a Birdie||10|
|Hit a birdie (one below par) on any hole.|
|A birdie really shouldn't be any problem for you to get, ever, on any hole.|
If you are having trouble though here's a quick mini-walkthrough.
Load up the first hole of the Caribbean course.
First Shot: The computer has chosen a pretty good place for you to hit so go ahead and try to hit it as hard as possible and as straight as possible. It'll land near the small moat between you and the hole, if it's on the fairway that's good, if it's in the rough it's fine.
Second Shot: The computer will (or at least should if you're close enough) give you a fine shot that should aim near the hole. Go ahead and hit as hard and straight as possible towards the hole. You should land on the green if you aren't already in the hole.
Third Shot: Now it's time to putt. If you've still got your four seconds of bullet time left this'll be a piece of cake. Use the power meter and try to aim it a little past the flag on the meter. Try to hit it as straight as possible and use the bullet time to maneuver your ball into the hole. If you made the shot you got a birdie, good job.
If you happened to get an eagle (or better) this achievement won't unlock with it.
|Hit an eagle (two below par) on a par 4 or higher hole.||(1)|
Hitting an eagle really isn't all that hard, you should get at least one over the course of your golf career but if you don't happen to here's a video that should help you out.
For the most part eagles' are going to be hitting the ball as far as possible to make your next shot as close to the hole as possible and then trying to get a "Chip In" score on the next shot. Use your bullet time during the second shot to try and guide the ball into the hole.
|Hit the ball in the hole from outside of the green with any other club than the putter.|
|Getting a "Chip In" is actually rather simple as long as you have bullet time. Get the ball as close to the green as possible without actually going on to it, then use one of your clubs (most likely going to be a pitching wedge) to hit the ball into the hole.|
Try to accommodate for the wind and get the ball in off the fly rather than trying to roll it in. Use the to control the area you hit the ball in and try to get the indicator to be right on top of the hole. You might want to wait a couple levels before going after this one and building up some bullet time to use during the chip.
Chances are you'll unlock this when you get the achievements "Hole in One!," "Eagle Eye," and "Ironman."
|Hole In One!||30|
|Hit the ball in the hole with one stroke.||(2)|
The only two levels I've found this to be possible on have been level 5 and 18 on the Caribbean course. Since 18 takes longer to reach and is a little more difficult I recommend just shooting for 5.
This will also unlock the achievement "Ironman" if you didn't already have it.
|Complete one course in any mode online.||(1)|
|Select "Play" from the main menu and select the option Xbox Live. From here select player or ranked match and then find and finish a match with at least one other person in it.|
If the other person quits the match will automatically end but won't give you credit for playing that match.
|Play online modes and beat a total of 10 other players.||(10)|
|From the Xbox Live multiplayer options I recommend creating your own game on either course with random levels and set to 4. This will make the matches go much quicker as you'll be playing on only 4 holes rather than 9 or 18. I also recommend doing it on the Caribbean as they tend to shorter holes and thus end faster.|
When it says to beat 10 other playes it doesn't mean win in 10 seperate matches, it means to be better than 10 players total (can be the same person.)
E.g. if you play a four person match and get second you beat the third and fourth placed people and get two of the ten necessary wins.
Good luck and see the achievement "Parkland Challenge" for general tips on how to play the game well.
Also, if you've got extra controllers you can simply sign them in as guests and then beat them for a quick win in the online.
|Swing 1000 times.||(3)|
|When it says to swing 1000 times that doesn't count the extra swings you get added on if your ball goes out of bounds or anything like that.|
I recommend going after this one after you've finished all the other achievements as it will take more time than anyother one and will most likely be your last anyway.
Although 1000 sounds like a lot it isn't too much when you use a simple tactic. Select whichever course you want and then choose to play on the full course. From here you'll simply want to keep making bad swings and making divits in the ground. This is done simply by pushing quickly three times.
This will cause your player to make a crappy swing, knock a lot of dirt into the air, and have the ball go no where. Thankfully when the ball goes no where it takes no time for you to get to your next swing and the whole process is speed up quite a bit.
Unfortunatly you can only get 5 more swings per hole than the par. For instance level 1 on Caribbean is a par 4 so you can only swing 9 times before you're forced to continue. I reccomend doing the Parkland course as it's longer and you'll be able to squeeze a total of 375 swings out the 18 holes.
You can also do something else while you do this. I for instance started writing this guide while I played the game with my feet.
|Wear a bunny accessory in game when there is a bunny close by.||(1)|
|There are two accessories in the game that are considered bunny accessories: The "Lucky Rabbits Feet" and the "Bunny Ears." You can equip accessories onto your character right before you begin playing on the course you've chosen. |
As long as you're wearing the "Lucky Rabbits Feet" or the "Bunny Ears" the achievement will pretty much just pop up on its own. Simply play through the courses and you'll come across rabbits hopping around inside of the grass on the courses, if you happen to hit a ball near them a short cut scene will trigger and the achievement will unlock.
I unlocked the achievement before I even had a chance to tee off on the first level of the Caribbean course.
|Complete one hole with only iron clubs.||(1)|
|While you're playing on a course you can manually switch your clubs by using the and . For this achievement you're only allowed to use the clubs 9I, 8I, 7I, 6I, 5I, 4I, 3I which are your irons. You aren't allowed to use the sand wedge (SW) or pitching wedge (PW.)|
Pick any level you want to play on and then start off by switching your driver to an iron, continue playing using just irons and remember to switch your club to an iron every time before hitting as the game will automatically pick a club for you after each hit.
When you have to finally hit the ball into the hole you'll have to get a "Chip In" as you're only allowed to use a putter on the green. See the achievement "Chip In" for help with this.
