Hole 9 at Balboa Park Municipal Golf Club is a par 4 that plays 321 yards from the men's tees and has a handicap of 3. The hole features a slight dogleg left with an approximate fairway width of 24 yards, two bunkers, and 2% greenside bunkers as a percentage of total. Depending on the season, local weather conditions such as altitude, temperature, and wind can affect ball flight conditions so it's important to be aware of these factors when selecting clubs for your tee shot and approach. With an average driver distance of 217 yards and 7 iron 140 yards you'll likely need to hit something between these clubs off the tee in order to reach the green in regulation or set up an easy short-iron approach. Be sure to avoid the two bunkers located along this hole as they could lead to costly bogeys or worse if you find yourself in them!

Club Recommendations

Playing Tips:

1. Plan your tee shot carefully and take into account the local weather conditions such as altitude, temperature, and wind to ensure you select the best club for the job.

2. Aim for a spot in the fairway that is 24 yards wide to give yourself an optimal line off of the tee.

3. Avoid hitting your driver too far since it will likely leave you with an awkward distance between clubs on your approach shot into the green.

4. Be aware of two bunkers located along this hole - try not to land in them!

5. If possible, aim to reach the green in regulation or set up an easy short-iron approach by selecting a club somewhere between your average driver distance (217 yards) and 7 iron (140 yards).
