Blue Lagoon: Target Score (-16 to -18) ~ Optimal Score (-23)
Blue Water: Target Score (-15 to -17) ~ Optimal Score (-23)

I've listed Blue Lagoon and Blue Water together, since, as you have probably
noticed, they are the same course! Blue Water just has a few more obstacles.
The Blue levels are home to one of the best overdrive opportunities in the
game, and the easiest Albatross you'll ever find.

Blue Water-only notes will be marked with [BW].

GENERAL NOTES ON THIS COURSE
- Unlike the other courses, the water here is O.B. Try to avoid it.
- Blue Lagoon usually has calm winds (and Blue Water usually has harsh
winds). Note the word "usually".
- Remember that you are golfing on little islands. Islands are bits of land
surrounded on all sides by water. Yes, that's something you probably
learned in preschool, but if you forget for a moment you will end up
seeing the dolphins.
- On Blue Lagoon, you start at the front of the tee. On Blue Water, you
start at the back. This is a difference of about 10 yards, which can
really make a difference.

HOLE 1 // PAR 4
TARGET SCORE - 3

There's nothing in the way of shortcuts here. Just send it down the fairway
and put it on the green.

[BW] - On your tee shot, aim for the left side of the fairway so the trees
don't become a problem on your next shot.

HOLE 2 // PAR 3
TARGET SCORE - 2

Remember that the marker is not where your shot lands, it's where it bounces.
Go down to a 3W to see where your 1W will first bounce. If that marker is
over the water you may want to reconsider your shot. If you can't aim near
the hole because your shot will land in the ocean if you try, just settle
for somewhere on the green. At worst, you might two-putt for par.

HOLE 3 // PAR 4
TARGET SCORE - 3

Just aim over the trees on your first shot, they won't grab your ball. Mind
you don't use too much power on your approach shot, since you might roll off
the green and into a well-placed bunker.

HOLE 4 // PAR 4
TARGET SCORE - 3

The tee shot here is simple enough, but the approach is tricky. Judge the
shot and choose the club you think is right... then pick the next highest
one. Trust me. If you don't, you'll probably hit the rough surrounding the
green and roll into the sand.

[BW] - There's some trees around the front of the green that might make your
approach tricky. It might be a good idea to adjust your tee shot so that your
approach is unobstructed.

HOLE 5 // PAR 5
TARGET SCORE - 4
OPTIMAL SCORE- 3

If you're not into taking risks, then on your tee shot just whack it as far
as you can, and on your second shot use a PW or a low iron to knock it
farther down the island fairway. On your third shot you should be able to
make the green. If the hole is close to the near edge of the green, use a
powerspin backwards so you clear the water without going too far past. If
you miss the powerspin you can still two-putt for par.

Now, for the risktakers out there. If you have less than a 240y drive, you
may want to use a spin mastery on your tee shot. Give it maximum topspin and
try for a powerspin. Even if you miss you should still be close enough... If
you've got that wonderful 20 or more power, a regular shot should be fine
provided there's not a strong facewind.
Second shot, you want to pull off a tomahawk. Aim for the hole and hope for
the best. If you make it, you should be within 10 yards, and you can putt for
eagle. If you miss, you'll probably hear a "plunk" as your ball goes in the
lake.

HOLE 6 // PAR 3
BLUE LAGOON TARGET SCORE - 2
BLUE WATER TARGET SCORE - 3
BLUE WATER OPTIMAL SCORE- 2

On Blue Lagoon this hole is relatively easy. Give yourself enough power to
clear the ocean and use a backwards powerspin so you don't fly past the
green.

[BW] - On Blue Water this hole is a bit of a challenge, since there's a giant
volcano in your way. You've got two options to try for birdie. First of all,
you could aim a little past the right edge of the volcano, add right curve to
the ball, and miss pangya to the left. That should give you enough curve to
at least hit the green. No guarantee you'll stay on it though. Your second
option is to put left curve on the ball and powercurve around the left side.
This shot has a much greater chance of landing on the green, but if you miss
pangya you will probably bounce off the volcano O.B.

If you go the powercurve route... MAKE SURE YOU DON'T HIT THE SIGN!!! It
doesn't look harmful at ALL, but if you aim too far left and powercurve you
can very easily smack it, which will probably result in an OB.

HOLE 7 // PAR 5
TARGET SCORE - 4
OPTIMAL SCORE- 3

To eagle this hole, you'll need a decent drive (or strong tailwind) and a
powershot. If you have a weaker drive, you can still eagle this, but it;ll
require two powershots. On your tee shot, aim for the left part of the
fairway. Those with a weaker drive will need to use a powershot. In that
case, you should try to perform a tomahawk, but even if you miss you might
end up in the good spot. This is the only flat spot far enough down the
fairway: anywhere else will be on a slope and you'll be forced to use a 2W or
3W. If you land free of club restrictions, apply backspin and tomahawk your
second shot. If the tomahawk is successful you should hit the green and have
an eagle putt. If you miss, you'll roll down the giant hill in front of the
green and have a 50 to 60 yard approach shot to make.

HOLE 8 // PAR 4
TARGET SCORE - 3

If you're a low-ranked player who doesn't have much in the way of clothing
and is angry at all the high-rank players who can get lower scores with their
longer drives, this hole is your chance to turn around and say "Ha ha!"

...Kinda.

On your tee shot, you have to land on this peninsula thing. It just so
happens that a 230 yard drive is the perfect amount of power for this shot.
Those with more power either need to aim to the far right or use less power,
and they risk rolling past the peninsula into the bunker.

Pleasantly enough, the green should be about 220 yards away on your next shot
if you aimed toward the middle with your sub-240 drive. Enjoy it while you
can, because very few holes are catered towards the weaklings.

HOLE 9 // PAR 4
TARGET SCORE - 3

This hole has a very tricky approach. The green is rather narrow, especially
at the very tip, which is where the hole seems to be placed most of the time.
It's no more than ten yards from one end to the other in the direction you're
aiming, so if your chipping isn't super accurate you might want to aim a wee
bit left to hit the fatter part of the green. Then again, a 15 or so yard
chip can be easier than a 15 or so yard putt. Just play to your strengths
here.

HOLE 10 // PAR 3
TARGET SCORE - 3
OPTIMAL SCORE- 2

(!!) - The green on this hole is BRUTAL. Don't give yourself a long putt.

Not a whole lot to say for the safe route. Just try to get as close as the
hole as possible. (It might even be easier just to get close to the green and
take a short chip, if you're better at chipping than putting.)

Now, there's a way to either get a LOT of overdrive, or get a lot (lowercase)
of overdrive and end up with a really tough birdie putt. The short answer is
you tomahawk the volcano. You want to aim for the dark brown part (if you hit
the light brown part you might stick), and you want to have some spin on the
ball -- probably backspin so you hit far enough on the volcano and you don't
roll too far down the green (that is, if you even make the green), but if you
have more than a 240y drive topspin might be better since you don't want the
ball to hit the back of the volcano -- since the more the ball is spinning,
the less likely it is to stick. Now, you just try to hit a little past the
side of the mountain, and it should explode, roll down the mountain fairly
quickly, get slowed down by the rough, and dribble onto the green. Worth
about 50 pang in overdrive (100 if you hit a super pangya).

[BW] - There are trees around the volcano. If your really awesome cool shot
rolls into one, it will suddenly stop and you will be O.B. Watch out.

HOLE 11 // PAR 4
TARGET SCORE - 3

Here's another one of those low-power-friendly holes. If you have more than
20 power and there's a tailwind, you should probably use a 2W so you don't
go O.B. (or, for Blue Water, have some kind of short and fat pink palm tree
thing in your way). The approach might be a little tough; too hard and you
will end up well past the hole, too soft and you might hit the rough and end
up not making it onto the green.

[BW] - On top of that little problem, there's a couple of trees guarding the
green. Be careful not to hit them, or you'll land in the rough a couple dozen
yards from the hole.

HOLE 12 // PAR 5
TARGET SCORE - 4
OPTIMAL SCORE- 3

If you're going for eagle here, you've got a few options. All of them involve
a Spin Mastery. First of all, you could try doing a simple powerspin with
maximum topspin and a powershot (This is not recommended for Blue Water since
this shot ends up rolling into the OB zone, and in Blue Water there's a bunch
of trees for your shot to get blocked by). If you've got good tailwind, this
shot might roll onto the fairway before powerspinning, resulting in a 300y
drive and a fairly close approach. Secondly, you could try a powerspin
tomahawk with maximum topspin. This should produce similar, if not better,
results compared to the first option. You can try this on Blue Water but
there's still a risk of impacting O.B. and then rolling into a tree and
staying O.B. Finally, you can do a regular tomahawk with maximum backspin. It
should impact around 270-280 yards down the fairway. This shot is the safest
option on Blue Water. On your approach, depending on your power you might
need to use a powershot to make the green, and from there you might have a
long putt anyway. If you manage to hole in three strokes, you definitely
deserve this eagle.

For the slightly saner crowd, let's aim for the end of the upper plateau.
If your marker shows OB, or if it's very near to the edge and there's a
tailwind, you might want to use less than full power or the 2W. You might be
better off landing in the rough: it's possible to get club restricted on the
very tip of the fairway, and a 1W at 95% power goes farther than a 100% 2W.

[BW] - Aim a little left of centre on the tee shot so that your next shot
is not obstructed by the large palm tree. On your second shot, take note of
the trees and make sure you are not aiming through the foliage before taking
the shot.

On your second shot, you can just fire it down the fairway, or aim for the
little island of rough. Unless you intend to chip in though I'd just aim for
the fairway, since you'll probably end up closer to the hole. The only
advantage of the rough patch is that it's flat, which only makes a difference
if you're trying for an ultra-precise long chip.

HOLE 13 // PAR 4
TARGET SCORE - 3

Birdie is a little bit tricky here, thanks to the strategic placement of a
volcano between the fairway and the green. Try to aim as far left as you can
without the ball ending up in the rough (This depends on your power.) Next
shot, if the volcano is really in your way and you have enough power to make
the green, aim for about the right edge of the volcano and add right curve
to the ball. If you don't have enough power, just aim for the far fairway
and take par. If your tee shot went far enough that the volcano ain't a
problem, excellent! You've got a clean shot at the green.

HOLE 14 // PAR 4
TARGET SCORE - 3

You want to get as close to the hole as possible, since the hole is pretty
far away for a par 4. Aim for the edge of the fairway on the northern tip of
the first island, don't use too much power, and apply backspin so you don't
roll too far.

[BW] - Aim for the right part of the northern tip of the fairway. If you're
too far left there'll be a lighthouse in your way next shot.

On your second shot you should be able to make the green. However, the hole
is sometimes located at the very back of the green, around 260 yards away
from where a good tee shot should land. You might have to make a very long
(sometimes impossible due to the bunker) putt for birdie.

HOLE 15 // PAR 5
TARGET SCORE (No risk) - 5
TARGET SCORE (Low risk) - 4
TARGET SCORE (Mid risk) - 3
OPTIMAL SCORE ----------- 2

Hole 15 offers five options, each with varying levels of risk.

Par (no risk): Whack it around the C-shaped level. It'll take four shots to
get on the green, though.

Birdie (low risk): On your first shot, aim for the left fairway, just like in
the Par route. On your second shot, loft it onto the rough island. There
shouldn't be much risk of rolling off since low irons hardly roll at all, and
you shouldn't have to worry about going in the water since low irons first
bounce much closer to the specified distance than woods. Next shot, use a 1W
and shoot for the green. Use backspin, and possibly powerspin if the hole is
quite close to the near edge of the green.

Eagle (mid risk): On your tee shot, aim for the rough island. Like the birdie
path, except a little riskier. Apply backspin to minimize the risk of rolling
off the island, and use as little power as possible (Enough to make it onto
the island, but not enough to roll off). Before shooting, make sure the
flower ornament is not in your way (You should be able to go over the smaller
flower on the right but your shot will hit the large flower on the left if
that's where you're aiming). Finally, try for a backwards powerspin: you can
definitely stick to the island without one, however if you succeed you're
almost guaranteed not to bounce off. The approach shot is a lot like the tee
shot: make sure you have enough power to make it across, don't use too much
or you might roll off the green into the rough or even OB, and a backwards
powerspin helps.

Albatross (high risk): Aim at green, apply backspin, and tomahawk. A 250y
or higher powershot (which is 240y normally which is 20 power) should make
the green. Lower, and you might end up in the rough, which makes a short chip
and a short putt for eagle. If you want your tomahawk to go further then use
a spin mastery and apply maximum backspin. This should allow even those with
the basic 230 yard drive to make the green. Now, depending on your power, the
wind, and the hole placement, if you did land on the green you might have a
20 to 30 yard putt to make. The green is relatively flat, so it's not an
impossible putt, but it's not a freebie either. You've got to earn that
albatross Razz (And it should go without saying that missing the tomahawk means
OB for you.)

[BW] - There is a palm tree that might threaten your shot, but as long as you
don't hit the trunk you'll be alright.

Albatross (stupidly high risk): 244y-248y of power (in low winds at least),
if you have between 234y and 242y use a powershot to make up the difference,
aim for the green, apply topspin, perform a powerspin. You'll skip the water,
you'll (hopefully) hop over the cliff instead of smacking into it, you'll hit
the rough and you just might end up on the green. And the ball will squeal
and uselessly skid a yard closer to the cup. It's a fairly impressive shot to
make, and it'll surprise those who expect you just to tomahawk it like
everyone else, and you'll win the respect of your group, but if your ego
doesn't need stroking it's much much MUCH safer just to do it the tomahawk
way.

Anyways, I bet you're curious. Is this hole possible to hole-in-one? The
answer is yes. You'll need the hole to be in the 261 yard placement, you'll
probably need tailwind, and you'll either need at least a 246 yard drive sans
powershot, or a spin mastery. Then, you tomahawk and hope it goes in.

HOLE 16 // PAR 3
TARGET SCORE - 2

Well, after the excitement of Hole 15 (or the misery of going OB three times
in a row trying for that high-risk shot) comes Hole 16 to calm you down or
cheer you up. It's a fairly simple par 3. If the hole is close to the near
edge of the green, give it some extra power and try to do a backwards
powerspin (If you don't hit it hard enough, its first bounce will be in the
bunker. As you may have guessed, sand is not a very bouncy surface.)

[BW] - There's a few more trees on the left edge of the green that might be
in your way, depending on the hole placement. You can aim for the centre of
the green in this case and try a long-ish putt, or you can try to tomahawk
through the trees.

HOLE 17 // PAR 4
TARGET SCORE - 3

Until North Wiz was released, this was the hole to get a massive drive on.
Use a spin mastery, and (for maybe 15-20 more yards and double the pang) a
powershot. Switch to your 3W and try to line up the dot right in the middle
of the fairway (You want your shot to bounce right down the middle; if you're
a little too far left or right your super drive will probably finish 70 yards
short of what it could have been, and in the rough.) Then switch back to the
1W, apply maximum topspin, try to hit Max power, and do a powerspin. If you
pull it off, you should get at let a 320 yard drive. 350 yards is a decent
drive. In good wind, 370 or even 380 is possible. If you got a super pangya,
double the already wicked overdrive pang.

Anyways, from just about 400 yards down the fairway the green is just a
stone's throw away. Take a short chip and putt for birdie.

HOLE 18 // PAR 4
TARGET SCORE - 3

If you love risks, aim for the bridge and try to pangya. You can get about
15 to 25 yards closer to the hole (and you can swing your club through the
rails, so don't worry about having an unplayable shot), but if you miss the
pangya you're probably going OB.

If you hate risks, aim to the right, apply backspin and use about 210 yards
of power. The goal here is to stay as far away from the edge of the water
while going far enough to make it to the green on your next shot. The less
power you have, the closer you'll have to get (that, or give up the potential
birdie and settle for par), but it should be possible to make it in two with
230 yards o' power if the wind isn't terrible.

there's still a risk of impacting O.B. and then rolling into a tree and
staying O.B. Finally, you can do a regular tomahawk with maximum backspin. It
should impact around 270-280 yards down the fairway. This shot is the safest
option on Blue Water. On your approach, depending on your power you might
need to use a powershot to make the green, and from there you might have a
long putt anyway. If you manage to hole in three strokes, you definitely
deserve this eagle.

For the slightly saner crowd, let's aim for the end of the upper plateau.
If your marker shows OB, or if it's very near to the edge and there's a
tailwind, you might want to use less than full power or the 2W. You might be
better off landing in the rough: it's possible to get club restricted on the
very tip of the fairway, and a 1W at 95% power goes farther than a 100% 2W.

[BW] - Aim a little left of centre on the tee shot so that your next shot
is not obstructed by the large palm tree. On your second shot, take note of
the trees and make sure you are not aiming through the foliage before taking
the shot.

On your second shot, you can just fire it down the fairway, or aim for the
little island of rough. Unless you intend to chip in though I'd just aim for
the fairway, since you'll probably end up closer to the hole. The only
advantage of the rough patch is that it's flat, which only makes a difference
if you're trying for an ultra-precise long chip.

HOLE 13 // PAR 4
TARGET SCORE - 3

Birdie is a little bit tricky here, thanks to the strategic placement of a
volcano between the fairway and the green. Try to aim as far left as you can
without the ball ending up in the rough (This depends on your power.) Next
shot, if the volcano is really in your way and you have enough power to make
the green, aim for about the right edge of the volcano and add right curve
to the ball. If you don't have enough power, just aim for the far fairway
and take par. If your tee shot went far enough that the volcano ain't a
problem, excellent! You've got a clean shot at the green.

HOLE 14 // PAR 4
TARGET SCORE - 3

You want to get as close to the hole as possible, since the hole is pretty
far away for a par 4. Aim for the edge of the fairway on the northern tip of
the first island, don't use too much power, and apply backspin so you don't
roll too far.

[BW] - Aim for the right part of the northern tip of the fairway. If you're
too far left there'll be a lighthouse in your way next shot.

On your second shot you should be able to make the green. However, the hole
is sometimes located at the very back of the green, around 260 yards away
from where a good tee shot should land. You might have to make a very long
(sometimes impossible due to the bunker) putt for birdie.
How do you get those infos..Hmmmm i wonder..
