Welcome to the second hole at Morgan Run Resort & Club - South, located in beautiful Rancho Santa Fe, California. This par 3 is a true test of skill and strategy, with its length and challenging green complex.

From the championship tees, this hole measures 208 yards and has a handicap of 12. The distance alone can be intimidating for even the most skilled golfers, but don't let that discourage you. With some smart club selection and course management, you can conquer this hole.

For your tee shot, we recommend using a driver or fairway wood to ensure you reach the green in regulation. At approximately 217 yards off the tee box, these clubs should give you enough distance while still allowing for good control over your ball flight.

As for your approach shot into the green area of 7707 square feet, it's important to note that there are three bunkers strategically placed around it. However, only two percent of these bunkers are greenside (meaning they are close to or on the putting surface). So while they may not pose as much of a threat as other holes on this course with higher bunker counts and percentages on greensides bunkers), it's still crucial to avoid them if possible.

In terms of weather conditions here at Morgan Run Resort & Club - South during different seasons throughout the year:

- In springtime (March-May), expect warm temperatures ranging from mid-60s to low-80s Fahrenheit with moderate winds.

- Summer (June-August) brings hot temperatures reaching up into high-90s Fahrenheit with little wind.

- Fall (September-November) sees cooler temperatures averaging mid-to-high 70s Fahrenheit with occasional gusty winds.

- Winter (December-Feburary) brings cool temperatures ranging from high-50s to low-70s Fahrenheit with light breezes.

It's also worth noting that due to its location in Southern California, the altitude and temperature here can have a slight impact on ball flight. The higher elevation (approximately 100 feet above sea level) may cause your shots to travel slightly further than expected, while the warmer temperatures can also add some distance.

In summary, for this challenging par 3 at Morgan Run Resort & Club - South in Rancho Santa Fe, we recommend using a driver or fairway wood off the tee and aiming to avoid the two percent of greenside bunkers around the green. Keep an eye on weather conditions and adjust your club selection accordingly. With these strategies in mind, you'll be well-equipped to tackle this hole like a pro. Good luck!
