Hole 1 at the Pauma Valley Country Club is a 532-yard par 5 from the Championship Tees. This hole has a slight dogleg left and an approximate fairway width of 30 yards. There are five bunkers on this hole, with two percent of them located greenside. The green area measures 10932 square feet.

This hole requires significant power off the tee to carry the bunkers in order to set up a shorter second shot into the green. During summer months, golfers may need to adjust their club selection due to increased temperatures which can cause shots to travel further than expected; conversely, during winter months players should expect slightly shorter carries due to colder temperatures and higher altitude. With an average drive length of 217 yards, it will likely take two well-struck shots for most golfers reach this green in regulation – meaning that they will have two opportunities for birdie or better if they play strategically and avoid hazards such as water or out-of-bounds areas along either side of the fairway. An ideal approach shot would be between 140–150 yards with a 7 iron or pitching wedge depending upon wind conditions and pin placement

Club Recommendations

For the average golfer, it is important to play a smart and conservative game on this hole. Start by aiming for the center of the fairway off the tee and avoiding any bunkers or hazards. This will give you an opportunity to hit your second shot with more accuracy, as well as provide a better angle into the green. With five bunkers surrounding this green, it is important to avoid them at all costs – focus on hitting your approach shots accurately in order to stay away from these hazards and maximize your chances of scoring well. Additionally, be mindful of wind conditions when selecting clubs for both tee shots and approaches – if there is significant wind coming from left-to-right (or vice versa), adjust accordingly so that you can hit accurate shots into the green. Finally, make sure you choose a club that will land softly enough so that you have a chance at making birdie putts!
