Hole #5 at TPC Scottsdale's Stadium Course is a slight dogleg left par 4 that plays 453 yards from the championship tees and 350 yards from the women's tees. It has a handicap of 6, making it one of the more difficult holes on this course. The fairway width is 34 yards wide with three bunkers that make up 3% of the total green area (12744 sq ft). Depending on your club selection, you may need to hit your tee shot around 250-270 yards to clear any trouble in order to have an approach shot into the green. The altitude in Scottsdale can cause golf balls to fly further than normal so be sure to adjust accordingly for both your tee shots and approaches depending on wind conditions. In summer months, temperatures can reach upwards of 100 degrees Fahrenheit so try using clubs with lighter shafts or even playing one club less than usual during hot weather rounds as well.

Club Recommendations

1. Choose the right club: Depending on your desired distance, select a club that will get you within range of the green while avoiding any trouble from bunkers or other hazards.

2. Take into account altitude and temperature: Make sure to adjust for altitude when selecting clubs as golf balls fly further in Scottsdale than they would at sea level courses. Also be mindful of hot temperatures and consider using lighter shafts or playing one club less than usual during summer rounds.

3. Aim wide: The fairway is 34 yards wide so aim slightly wider with your tee shot to give yourself more room to work with if needed.

4. Play smart shots: If you find yourself in trouble near the bunkers, play a safe shot rather than going for an aggressive approach which could lead to higher scores on this hole due to its difficulty rating of 6 out of 18 holes at TPC Scottsdale's Stadium Course
