Played my 200th round last night and still never hit a hole-in-one.

I suck. Closest I have come was on the super uphill par 3 on the hardest course (forget the name). I managed to get a rising shot but the ball dropped .8 feet away instead of going in. WTF?!

Any advice for me or is it mostly luck? I typically play as Izaak or Pandora with BigAir/BigAir.

Try to make control "S" or "A" class and try albatross and hole-in-one. I made them in two days.

Oddly enough, the first hole on Maple is the most likely if you can boom it. The green is flat, with Izzak BA/BA you can max your distance and pretty much guarantee to be close to the flag, plus it's dead easy to retry because it's the first hole.

Although my HIO's have come on the second course, thanks to those still smooth greens.

thats really sad :( I got my two hole and ones in one day both on Maple, maybe you should try hitting there on there par 3's there ones that is usually straight ahead of you and the win is always facing in the right direction to get a easy hole and one.

Spent several hours last night trying for a hole-in-one but no luck. I have every trophy except the one for getting an Ace and I'm getting burned out with the game. Thanks for the tips everyone but I'm going to take a break until the DLC comes out.

play the easy courses and use super backspin every shot.. aim for the pin... it will happen eventually

I got the Hole in One trophy the first week I had my Vita.

I have never come close to that performance before or since.

IIRC it was hole 5 on Maple. I'm probably wrong, though.

Finally got an ace and it was very unexpected. It was at Kagurayama hole 2 which is a par 4!

359.1 yd double eagle, rising shot, hole-in-one!

Edit, was round number 226.
