Hole 10 at Aviara Golf Club is a challenging par 5 that requires strategic thinking and precise execution. From the championship tees, this hole measures at 515 yards with a slight dogleg left and is rated as the eighth most difficult hole on the course with a handicap of 8.

The tee shot on this hole will require careful consideration due to its length and curvature. For average golfers who hit their driver around 217 yards, it may be wise to aim for accuracy rather than distance off the tee. The fairway width of approximately 36 yards provides some room for error, but players should still be mindful of avoiding the eight bunkers scattered throughout the fairway.

As players approach their second shot, they will need to take into account any potential impact from weather conditions. Located in Carlsbad, California, Aviara Golf Club experiences mild temperatures year-round with occasional strong winds during spring and summer months. Altitude should not have much effect on ball flight.

For those who hit their 7 iron around 140 yards or pitching wedge around 120 yards, reaching the green in two shots may be possible depending on wind direction and strength. However, there is water located near the green which adds an extra element of risk to consider when deciding whether or not to go for it in two shots.

Speaking of greenside hazards, there are only three percent greenside bunkers on this hole which allows for more aggressive play when approaching the green. The large green area measuring at over ten thousand square feet provides ample space for errant shots to find safe landing areas.

Overall, Hole #10 at Aviara Golf Club offers a challenging yet rewarding experience for golfers looking to test both their physical abilities and strategic decision-making skills.
