This hole plays slightly easier in warmer months due to less wind and lower altitude resulting in more consistent ball flight conditions compared with colder months when gusts of wind can affect shot accuracy.

Club Recommendations

Given the absence of any bunkers or water hazards, your best approach is to focus on accuracy and distance control. Make sure that you choose a club that will allow for consistent ball flight and landing in the green area. Aim to hit the middle of the green as this provides plenty of room for error and should result in an easy two-putt par. In addition, consider playing slightly shorter clubs when temperatures are colder due to increased wind speed which can affect your shot accuracy. Finally, be aware of seasonal temperature changes as they may require different strategies from one season to another.
