Hole 9 at Penmar Golf Course is a 350-yard par 4 that plays slightly downhill from the championship tees. The fairway width of 35 yards provides ample room to hit your tee shot, although you should be mindful of the slight dogleg left as you approach the green. With only 3 bunkers on this hole and 1% greenside bunker coverage, accuracy off the tee is key in order to set up an easier approach into the green. As with most courses in California, weather can have a great impact on play here: during summer months temperatures are often high and wind speeds can gust up to 15 mph; while winter temperatures tend to stay mild with light winds around 5 mph. Depending on your skill level, aim for an ideal drive distance of 217 yards or less (or 140/120 yards for 7 iron/pitching wedge) so that you’ll be able to reach the green in regulation without too much trouble.
