Club Recommendations

For the average golfer, it is best to play a conservative shot off the tee and aim towards the middle of the fairway. This will give you more room for error and provide an easier approach into the green. If your driver distance is 217 yards or less, consider using a 3 wood or hybrid club to ensure accuracy off the tee. It is important to be aware of wind direction when playing this hole as it can affect ball flight significantly; if there are strong winds coming from left-to-right, aim slightly right of center on your drive.

When approaching onto green, try to land your ball in front portion of green which has less bunkers around it and avoid water hazards at all cost by keeping away from back portion of green which has two water hazards near by. For those who hit 7 iron 140 yard or pitching wedge 120 yard should also take extra care while approaching given presence of bunkers surrounding entire area so make sure you have enough club selection that suits your game style before taking any shots onto green. Finally use putter wisely as this hole has large size putting surface with four undulations across its length making it difficult for golfers with higher handicaps to score well here; so focus on having proper speed control while putting and don’t forget about practice swings before actually hitting any putts!
