Weather conditions can have a big impact on how you play Hole 9 at Encinitas Ranch Golf Course. During summer months temperatures are high so ball flight may be affected due to altitude and wind gusts coming off nearby beaches which could cause some difficulty for longer hitters trying to reach this lengthy par 5 in two shots. In winter months temperatures drop making it easier for golfers to shape their shots around obstacles such as water hazards or trees that line each side of this hole; however, cold air can also affect distance control when hitting approach shots into this large green complex so club selection becomes important during these times of year too!
