Hole 7 at Pebble Beach, a short par 3 ranging from 91 to 106 yards, presents a significant challenge despite its length, primarily due to its ocean proximity influencing wind speeds. The green, measuring 4637 sq ft with 6 bunkers comprising 55% of the surrounding area, demands precise club selection and a focus on accuracy to counter the variable wind, altitude, and temperature effects.

Club Recommendations

High Handicapper: High handicappers should focus on precision rather than distance. Given the short length of the hole, a pitching wedge or even a sand wedge, depending on the wind, is the best choice. The primary goal is to land on the green to avoid bunkers and water hazards. Take a few practice swings to adjust to the wind conditions and ensure a controlled, accurate shot.

Medium Handicapper: Medium handicappers might use a pitching wedge from all tee boxes, adjusting the swing strength based on the day's conditions. The key is to maintain control and accuracy, especially with the variable winds near the ocean. A well-placed tee shot can set up a straightforward putt, so focus on landing the ball safely on the green and away from the bunkers.

Low Handicapper: Low handicappers should take advantage of their precision skills, using a pitching wedge or even a high-lofted wedge to ensure accuracy. The challenge is to judge the wind effectively and select the right club and swing to land the ball near the hole. Practice swings are crucial to gauge the wind's impact on ball flight and to adjust the shot accordingly.
