Hole 5 at Penmar Golf Course is a par 3, measuring 177 yards from the championship tees and 149 yards from the ladies' tees. With an average green size of 6479 sq ft, this hole offers plenty of room for error and provides golfers with a good opportunity to go for it in two shots. The handicap rating of 2 indicates that this is one of the more difficult holes on the course.

The tee shot requires precision as there is only 1 greenside bunker located 1% away from the green to watch out for. Depending on local weather conditions during each season, altitude, temperature and wind can all have an impact on ball flight which should be taken into account when selecting clubs off the tee box. For example, if playing in summer months when temperatures are higher than usual, you may need to select a club with less loft such as your driver or 7 iron due to increased air density causing your ball to travel further than normal. When playing in colder winter months however, you may need extra loft off the tee box so consider using your 7 iron or pitching wedge instead.

Once you reach the green area with your second shot (or third depending on how far back you hit), take note that although there is plenty of room for error here due to its large size (6479 sq ft) , accuracy will still be key given that there’s only one small greenside bunker located near it (1%). Knowing what club distance ranges work best under various weather conditions will help optimize scoring opportunities here and ensure lower scores overall!
