Hole 2 at Birch Ridge Golf Course is a 370 yard, par 4. It's a slight dogleg left with an 80-yard wide fairway and no water hazards. The green area measures 18824 sq ft and there is only one bunker located off the fairway, so greenside bunkers are not a factor in your approach shot.

In the summer months, temperatures can reach into the 70s Fahrenheit and higher during peak hours making it important to consider ball flight when playing this hole. With that said, if you hit your driver 217 yards on average then you should be able to carry most of the dogleg for a shorter second shot into the green. If you prefer to play it safe, however, lay up short of the dogleg with a 7 iron or pitching wedge as your second shot will still leave you within 140-120 yards of the pin respectively depending on how far back you decide to go off tee box.

The altitude here may also affect ball flight in all four seasons but especially during spring and autumn when temperatures tend to be cooler than other times of year; make sure to adjust accordingly for any elevation changes as they could significantly alter your club selection off tee box as well as approach shots into green.

Club Recommendations

For your approach shot into green, the key here is to avoid overshooting and ending up in the single bunker off fairway. Aim for a spot on the left side of the green (if you’re right handed) or a spot on the right side of the green (if you’re left handed). This will give you a better chance at landing in one of those two spots with an easier chip onto putting surface.

Finally, take note that this hole has an 80-yard wide fairway so make sure to keep your tee shots within that range as any stray balls could end up out of bounds. Good luck!
