Club Recommendations

High Handicapper:

As a high handicapper, your main goal on the fifth hole at Pinnacle Peak Country Club is to avoid mistakes and set yourself up for a manageable approach shot. With your average drive distance of 200+ yards, you will likely be using the Men's tee box which measures 380 yards. This will leave you with around 180 yards to the green, which is well within your capabilities. However, beware of the slight dogleg left as it can easily catch out off-center shots. The small green is protected by three bunkers so aim for the center of the fairway to give yourself a clear shot in. Keep an eye on any changes in weather conditions as this can impact ball flight and make sure to take that into account when planning your shots.

Mid Handicapper:

For mid handicappers, this par 4 presents a great opportunity for scoring well if played strategically. Your average drive distance of ~230+ yards means you may use either the Pro or Championship tees measuring 407 and 431 yards respectively. Both options will leave you with a shorter approach shot into the small green protected by three bunkers. Aim for accuracy off the tee and try to hit towards the right side of fairway for an optimal angle into the green from there.

Low Handicapper:

As always, low handicappers are looking to make eagles on par 5s like this one at Pinnacle Peak Country Club. With your impressive driving distance of over 280 yards, consider using either Pro or Championship tees measuring between 407-431 yards depending on course conditions and wind direction/velocity during each season.

Aim towards left side of fairway off tee here (away from water) but keep in mind that doing so brings more trees into play - so take care! If successful however; should have good look at pin location & chance at eagle!

The small green has three bunkers protecting it, so make sure to take note of their locations and adjust your approach shot accordingly. Keep an eye on any changes in weather conditions as this can impact ball flight and make sure to take that into account when planning your shots.

Weather:

The weather in Scottsdale can vary greatly throughout the year, with hot summers and cooler winters. During the summer months, high temperatures combined with low humidity levels may cause the ball to travel further due to reduced air resistance. In contrast, during winter months when temperatures are lower and humidity is higher, you may experience less distance on your shots. Wind can also play a factor at Pinnacle Peak Country Club, especially during springtime when gusts can pick up suddenly making club selection crucial for success.
