In order to get this achievement you have to get an "albatross" at hole #16 - Trident Harbour. An albatross is a golf term for 3 strokes under par. Since this hole is a par 5 you have to make the hole in 2 shots.

It is a difficult achievement and it took me many tries but I finally did it in a single player match, pro level. The importance of pro level is that the flag is roughly in the middle of the green. Conditions were calm. My first shot was with the driver and I aimed for the ledge on the right side of the screen. The trick is to hit the ball with enough force so that it lands on the ledge but goes under the branches of the trees. If hit correctly the ball will bounce and roll down the slope and stop at 297 yards. If there is wind, you can still make this shot by hitting a bit harder or lighter depending on the wind direction. Sometimes the ball will hit some branches and still roll down the hill but if the shot goes into the thick of the trees the ball will stay at the top of the ledge and its game over because there are more trees and bushes that block the next shot.

Ok so the ball rolls down the fairway and the second shot is 246 yards to the hole. The flag is barely visible so one can aim directly for it. I switched clubs to a 3 wood and struck the ball with medium weight. It bounced between the trees unto the green and into the hole.
