The newest edition to the array of courses Shot-Online offers is Cadeiger! A course like none other you’ve played before; it presents a new facet that even the most experienced of players will find challenging. Playing Cadeiger course is like golfing in the clouds of a dreamland.

There are characteristics that players will notice which make this course unique. Such as drastic changes in elevation from point to point which cause golfers to be very aware and analyze every shot by observing if their next attempt will be a safe one. Cadeiger is an extremely beautiful course but can also be deadly for a participant’s score card. It is an 18 hole course with par of 72 and is public to all levels & titles that wish to engage it.

Cadeiger offers a round of golf that requires high lofted shots and tests multiple repertoires in a golfer’s skills. The course involves approaches from almost every conceivable angle. Don’t expect the light at the end of the tunnel to be a ray of hope. Cadeiger features arduous greens breaking in all conceivable directions. Even veteran golfers will be left scratching their head.

Course management is essential on Cadeiger! Many big hitters will discover that attaining the next closest fairway will be like an out of reach brass ring. Players must beware obstacles at all times when looking to advance past unfamiliar territories on the links. Examples of mistakes can be caused by oversight when judging how much elevation will affect a shot. Besides, there will always be the traditional water and sand bunkers appearing frequently and surrounding the course. Delving deeper into what Cadeiger course is made of, you witness stunning landscape which facilitates playable scenery that is tied in with the function that a real life golf course holds. Case in point, a golf course in the clouds established on giant pillars of land mass cannot have normal cart paths. However, with clever design, transportation is still available with the help of motorized ski lifts. These ambiances give the course even more of a charming atmosphere and actually add a touch of realism. Another special aspect for this course is the captivating camera angles. They are different from other courses in Shot-Online because of the intense elevation changes mention before. Some holes have 50.0+ meter drops with the consequence being large amount of hang time that are shown so beautifully, it melts away all anguish by watching them.

Let’s talk some strategy! About every hole on Cadeiger course requires a game plan before attacking the links. If your desire is a birdie, you will have to be prepared to carefully view all the options and paths Cadeiger bestows. A closer look into various random holes can demonstrate this implication. This par 4 hole is a great example of how it can be tempting for power players to unleash their distance. It better be coupled with high loft and control or you can expect to loose your stroke to and OB and have your balls drift away into the blue abyss. If you’re the type of player who likes to take what the course gives you, you’ll ignore the 2nd fairway and lay up with a mid-iron that sets up a manageable approach to the green. The opening drive is from an elevated tee, with the air lift cart path showing the way towards a patchy fairway surrounded by thick rough and OB not far off. Don’t land short of the green because a bunker is waiting for you up front! If you’re not within 5 yards of the cup, expect a two putt because this green is harsh and takes many turns. A forced carry across a ravine and up a hill needs to be long enough to find the fairway on this par 5. There's still an uphill approach that requires hitting one to two clubs more to a 3-tiered green, which slopes back to front, and is guarded by a bunker on the middle right. Off the tee, once again you’ll have a choice to lay up on the first fairway or give yourself a possible eagle putt making the 2nd fairway. A main thing to consider is the necessity to be in the center of the fairways as possible because of poor lie, bunkers, and rough which surround. This really sets up a great risk/reward for those who go for the green in two.

Many professional and weekend golfers alike commonly express how much golf is enormously a mental game. Shot-Online is proud to continually test player’s abilities and wits by adding challenging dimensions and courses to the game! Playing Cadeiger course is a textbook illustration of this.
