Hole 5 at Cypress Point Club in Pebble Beach, California is a par 5 that measures 493 yards from the Pro tees, 471 yards from the Men's tees and 416 yards from the Women's tees. The hole is slightly doglegged left with an approximate fairway width of 40 yards. There are 6 bunkers scattered throughout this hole, with 3% of them located on or around the green. This hole can be quite challenging due to its length as well as local weather conditions which vary greatly depending on the season; during summer months altitude and temperature can affect ball flight while windy conditions may prove difficult for even experienced golfers during winter months. With a driver distance of 217 yards and 7 iron distance of 140 yards, it would be wise for players to consider hitting a hybrid club off the tee such as a 3 wood or even long iron to stay out of trouble while still having enough power to reach this lengthy par 5 in two shots if done correctly. Once you have reached your desired spot off the tee, then you can consider hitting either your 7 iron or pitching wedge into this 7922 sq ft green depending on how far away you will be when approaching it.
