Hole 12, a 201-yard par 3 at Pebble Beach, varies slightly in distance from the pro (187 yards), men's (179 yards), and women's (165 yards) tees. With an elevated tee box, this hole demands precise club selection to navigate the 5 greenside bunkers, accounting for 19% of the total bunkers. The green, measuring 5681 square feet, is well-guarded by deep sand traps, challenging golfers to execute a well-calculated tee shot, especially under colder, windier conditions or at higher altitudes.

Club Recommendations

High Handicapper: High handicappers should choose a club that offers both distance and control, like a hybrid or a fairway wood, considering the elevated tee box and potential roll. The focus should be on landing on the green, preferably in the middle to avoid the bunkers. In colder or windy conditions, consider using more club to compensate for reduced carry distance.

Medium Handicapper: Medium handicappers might opt for a long iron or a hybrid, depending on their comfort and the day's conditions. Aim for the center of the green to steer clear of the bunkers. Extra attention should be paid to the ball's landing and roll, especially when dealing with the hole's elevation and potential weather challenges.

Low Handicapper: Low handicappers should use their precision to select the right club, possibly a mid to long iron, to manage both distance and accuracy. The goal is to land softly on the green, taking into account the elevation and guarding bunkers. In challenging conditions, adjust the club choice to ensure the ball carries sufficiently.
