    Set up a Stoke Play match, choose custom holes and select hole 17 on Wolf Creek as the only hole. Choose Black tees, Very Fast fairway speed, and Gale Force wind. Play with Tiger woods, use LB to power boost to the maximum during swing (120% total power) and apply top spin with RB all the way until the ball lands. I had a 30MPH wind behind me and I hit 435M (475 yards) on the first try and the achievement popped.

    The easiest way to do this is to play one on the earlier Par 5 holes on Wolf Creek. Use Tiger Woods, and power boost to 114% or more, and topspin the ball until it lands. This should get you the 400 yards. Gamernet Challenge does not unlock this achievement. Make sure that you use the wind to your advantage to maximise the chance of you hitting the fairway.
    Set the difficulty to Easy, and fairway speed as fast to increase the chances of hitting 400 yards plus.

    Elem3ntal80I recommend #17 on Wolf Creek, from back tees you start 140 ft above fairway. If having problems, can do custom course with this hole and set winds to gale force and just wait til you have the wind behind you a bit. For some reason I got a drive of 428 yds and it didn't pop, then retried and got 401 yds and then it did.

    dzaukHow do you make a custom course? I do not see where that is an option. Thanks!

    HBandellIf I remember rightly (it's been a while...) you go onto the bit of the menu where you can just play a round of golf on any course with custom settings, like a free play style, and then choose Wolf Creek as the course, select only the Par 5's, Easy difficulty, fairway speed as fast, and if you fail then just restart the round.

    Make a custom course with the holes on St Andrews and Carnoustie that are straight and over 400 yards. These courses are good because there are no trees to get in your way. Set the fairway speeds to very fast and winds to gale force. Now play with pretty much any golfer(I did this with my created golfer whos power is at about 9) and just hope you get lucky and the wind is blowing forwards. If you dont get the wind straight on your first game just keep trying and you will eventually get it.
