Hole 1 at Balboa Park Municipal Golf Club is a 150-yard par 3 with an 8 handicap. The green area measures 3838 square feet, and there are no greenside bunkers to contend with. This hole can be played in any season, but golfers should keep in mind that San Diego's altitude and mild weather will affect ball flight conditions during the summer months when temperatures get higher than usual. For this hole, most players will want to use their 7 iron or pitching wedge off the tee for accuracy and control. Depending on wind direction and strength, they may opt for a longer club like a 5 iron or 4 hybrid to ensure they reach the green safely. Players should take into account any elevation changes as well as sand traps surrounding the putting surface before deciding which club to hit for their approach shot.

Playing Tips:

1. Use a 7 iron or pitching wedge off the tee for accuracy and control. Depending on wind direction and strength, consider using a longer club like a 5 iron or 4 hybrid to reach the green safely.

2. When playing in summer months with higher temperatures, keep in mind that San Diego's altitude will affect ball flight conditions.

3. Take into account any elevation changes as well as sand traps surrounding the putting surface before deciding which club to hit for your approach shot.
