When considering club selection off the tee, keep in mind that altitude and temperature can impact ball flight conditions here at Morgan Run Resort & Club - North. With an average elevation above sea level and warm weather year-round, you may find that your shots travel farther than expected.

For our golfer who hits a driver ~217 yards off the tee, we recommend aiming towards the right side of the fairway to avoid any potential hazards on the left side near the dogleg. A well-placed drive should leave you with around ~100-120 yards into an elevated green measuring approximately ~6817 sq ft.

This green is guarded by seven bunkers scattered throughout its perimeter; however only two are greenside bunkers as a % of total. Therefore, it may be wise to play conservatively on your approach shot rather than risk landing in one these sand traps.

With our golfer hitting their pitching wedge ~120 yards and their seven iron ~140 years respectively according to inferred data and statistics provided by our chart below; we suggest choosing between these clubs depending on wind conditions and pin placement.

No matter which club you choose, make sure to factor in the slight curvature of this green when planning your approach shot. This will help ensure a successful putt for par or better on this challenging yet exciting hole at Morgan Run Resort & Club - North.

Enjoy your round and good luck!
