Hole 13 at Riviera Country Club is a challenging par-4 measuring 459 yards from the championship tees. This slight dogleg left plays downhill, with an approximate fairway width of 31 yards. The green area measures 10993 sq ft and there is just one greenside bunker to contend with that should be easily avoidable.

The weather conditions can change drastically throughout the year in Pacific Palisades, so it's important to adjust your strategy accordingly depending on the season. During winter months, cold temperatures may affect ball flight, while summer brings warmer temperatures and more windy days which could also impact club selection off the tee. Altitude does not have too much of an effect here as Pacific Palisades sits near sea level.

For golfers hitting their driver around 217 yards, they will likely need two shots to reach this hole in regulation - a long drive followed by an approach shot into the green complex. Golfers who can hit their 7 iron 140 yards or pitching wedge 120 yards should consider taking these clubs off the tee for increased accuracy and control over their second shot into the green complex instead of trying to overpower it with a driver or 3 wood off the tee box.

Club Recommendations

When approaching the green, golfers should be aware of the single bunker located on the left side. The size and shape of this bunker will depend on how far right or left you landed your tee shot. This is a large green complex measuring 10993 sq ft, so there is plenty of room to work with for approach shots into the green from any angle. Aim for the center of this green which has no slopes or hills that can affect ball flight.

Finally, take note of where pin placements are located when playing Riviera Country Club as they can vary in difficulty from day to day. When playing hole 13 at Riviera Country Club, look out for back-right pins as they will require more precision off your second shot due to their proximity to the greenside bunker.
