This achievement certainly takes a little trial and error, but hopefully I can eliminate that for the rest of you by outlining the specifics of the necessary shot. While I have included a video, I'm also adding a text description for those unable to watch the video.

If you're only going for this achievement, the quickest route is to select Free Play from the menu and choose Coyote Canyon Par 3 Holes. Make sure to select Elite difficulty. You'll still have to play through three additional holes to get to your chance, so we'll try to avoid the need for additional attempts.

Golfer: Reiko
Equipment: Cursed Woods
Savage Beast Irons
Assassin Wedges
Enchanted Putter
Killer Ball

You could get the achievement with any combination of clubs, but these are the ones I used. Also, the Cursed Woods alters the wind effect, so if you're not using them, you may have to adjust your shot to compensate a bit.

Caddy: Kirby
Perks: Wind Effect - 20%
Lucky Drop Chance + 75%

The only perk that really matters here is the Wind Effect, but there's nothing wrong with being optimistic that you might get a hole-in-one. If you don't have the better perks, you could always borrow a caddy from a friend.

Now, to the tee box we go! You'll want to use the pitching wedge (PW) for this, and the game should already have it equipped upon starting. Press the Y button to see where you're aiming. You'll want to go down and to the left of the hole. Locate the sand trap in the bottom left corner. Move your aim indicator so that you are centered below the aforementioned sand trap. Now, move it down until you're about a foot above the rough area (the dark brown grass).

You'll need full backspin on the ball. Using the d-pad, move the red dot all the way to the bottom of the ball indicator of you HUD. Since we brought Kirby along, you can now hold B to see where the shot will take you. When you're done, tap down on the d-pad to deactivate Kirby's ability so we can use Reiko's. Activate her ability now by holding X.

Your shot should be ready to go. Try to be precise when clicking the power meter. I don't think you'll need be perfect, but it will need to be close. Now you're left to wait as the ball plummets hundreds of feet to the green below.

Hopefully, I managed to help a few more people acquire this somewhat tricky achievement. If you have any questions or need clarification, just let me know and I will try and respond as quickly as possible. Thanks!
