Hole 2 at Balboa Park Municipal Golf Club is a 130 yard Par 3. It has an even split handicap of 9 for both men and women players. The green area measures 3285 square feet, with 1 greenside bunker accounting for 3% of the total surface area.

In terms of strategic approach, this hole requires accuracy off the tee to hit a small target from 130 yards out. Depending on local weather conditions, club selection can vary greatly due to altitude and wind changes across all four seasons in San Diego. For example, during summer months when temperatures are higher and air is thinner, it may be beneficial to use a pitching wedge instead of a 7 iron due to increased ball flight distance caused by heat and altitude (assuming your golfer hits their 7 iron ~140 yards). On colder days with more moisture present in the air or stronger winds blowing into your face, you may want to opt for the 7 iron as it will provide less carry than the pitching wedge but more control over directionality given its lower launch angle relative to that of a PW shot.

In addition to accurate tee shots being essential here, golfers should also keep in mind that there is one greenside bunker located about 3% away from the front edge of the green which could come into play if they don’t hit their shots close enough towards center-green or slightly long depending on pin location/hole placement. With proper course strategy combined with accurate execution off the tee box and onto this relatively small green complex you should have no problem scoring well on this tricky par three!
