Hole 7 at Pauma Valley Country Club is a challenging par 3 with an uphill tee shot. From the championship tees, it plays 187 yards, and from the pro tees 175 yards. The men's and women's tees are 148 and 134 yards respectively, while the senior women's tee sits 129 yards away. The green area measures 6295 sq ft., but beware of the 24% greenside bunkers that can come into play if you don't hit your target!

The altitude of Pauma Valley can affect ball flight so depending on wind conditions in each season (spring, summer, fall & winter) players should adjust their club selection accordingly to ensure they stay out of trouble. On average days when there is no wind or other weather conditions to consider a driver for 217 yard hitters off the championship tees; a 7 iron from 140 yard hitters off the pro tees; and pitching wedge from 120 yard hitters off either men’s or women’s/senior women’s tee should be sufficient for reaching this hole in regulation.

Club Recommendations

The green is large but has a 24% bunkers surrounding it. Therefore, accuracy should be the main focus for this hole and players should aim to land their shot in the middle of the green as opposed to trying to hit close to the pin. This will give them more room for error and keep them away from potential hazards. Additionally, if they are having trouble hitting accurate shots with longer clubs, they can opt for shorter clubs such as wedges or even putters off the tee which will help ensure they stay on target.
