Hole 2 at Riviera Country Club is a challenging par 4 with a slight dogleg right. Success on this 463-yard hole hinges on an accurate tee shot to provide an opportunity for par or better. The fairway is narrow at 32 yards, flanked by four fairway bunkers, and two greenside bunkers come into play. The second shot could vary from long irons to mid-irons depending on tee box type and weather conditions. Aim your tee shot towards the left side of the fairway for a favorable approach, choose a club that allows at least 200 yards off the tee, and pay attention to wind conditions. When approaching the green, prioritize accuracy over power, focusing on centering your shots for a more controlled approach.

Club Recommendations

For High Handicappers:

Off the tee, focus on accuracy rather than distance. Choose a club that carries around 200 yards and keeps you in play. For your second shot, prioritize getting closer to the green rather than trying to reach it. This approach should leave you with a manageable pitch onto the green.

For Medium Handicappers:

Aim for accuracy off the tee by favoring the left side of the fairway. Your tee shot should carry about 230 yards. On your second shot, aim for the center of the green to set up a good birdie chance.

For Low Handicappers:

You have the distance to go for the green in two. Off the tee, aim for the left side of the fairway to get the best angle for your approach. When approaching the green, focus on accuracy and aim for the center. With a driver carrying approximately 280 yards, you should leave yourself with about 183 yards for your second shot, setting up a potential birdie opportunity.
