Hole 14 at Encinitas Ranch Golf Course is a 433 yard par 4 from the championship tees. This hole has an 11 handicap and plays slightly downhill with a slight dogleg left. The fairway width measures 39 yards wide, so accuracy off the tee is key to setting up your approach shot into this large green that measures 12375 sq ft in size. There are three greenside bunkers as a percentage of total, located around the green for added challenge.

Given its length, players should consider hitting driver off the tee to give themselves more room for their second shot. However, depending on wind conditions and temperature, which can vary drastically throughout all four seasons in Encinitas due to its coastal location near San Diego Bay, players may want to hit something shorter such as a 3 wood or hybrid club if they don't feel comfortable with their driver distance control.

For those who successfully reach the green in regulation (2 shots), they will need good wedge play given that most golfers hit 7 iron ~140 yards and pitching wedge ~120 yards according to our data set - both of which fall short of reaching this long par 4's green from the championship tees!

Club Recommendations

Given the three greenside bunkers, players should focus on landing their approach shots in the middle of the green as much as possible. If they miss their target and land in a bunker, they should take a deep breath and commit to playing out of it with confidence. The key here is to get back onto the putting surface safely so that you can give yourself an opportunity at making par or better.

Finally, be sure to read your putts carefully before selecting your line - this large green has subtle breaks that could make all the difference between sinking an important birdie putt or having to settle for par!
