Hole 5 at Encinitas Ranch Golf Course is a par 4, measuring 375 yards from the Championship tees and carries a handicap of 12. With no water hazards on this hole, golfers have some room to work with off the tee. The fairway slopes gently downhill from left to right and can be generous in size for longer hitters. However, two greenside bunkers as a percentage of total make accuracy key when approaching the green. Depending on local weather conditions (altitude, temperature, wind), club selection will vary throughout the four seasons; however an average golfer should plan to hit driver ~217 yards or 3-wood/hybrid ~200 yards off the tee followed by 7 iron ~140 yards or pitching wedge ~120 yards into the green.

Club Recommendations

Playing Tips:

1. Use a driver off the tee for maximum distance, aiming to the left side of the fairway as it slopes downhill from left to right.

2. Play conservatively and aim away from the two greenside bunkers as they can be difficult to recover from if you hit into them.

3. Consider club selection based on local weather conditions - take wind direction and altitude into account when choosing your clubs off the tee and approaching the green.

4. Aim for accuracy over power - an accurate shot will yield better results than a powerful one that misses its target due to lack of control or poor technique with your swing.

5. Make use of practice swings before each shot in order to get comfortable with your chosen club and ensure you have proper balance throughout your swing so that you can execute it accurately every time!
