Club Recommendations

High Handicappers:

High handicappers should approach this hole with caution. Using a 7 iron off the tee is a wise choice to ensure they have enough distance, factoring in the warm temperatures. Aim for the center of the vast green to avoid complicated recoveries from the bunkers off the tee. Focus on accuracy and positioning for a chance at a bogey or better.

Medium Handicappers:

Medium handicappers can use their 7-iron distance to tackle this hole. Aim towards the center of the expansive green to minimize the risk of ending up in the bunkers. Wind direction should be a consideration when selecting the club, as they aim for accuracy and control on this challenging par 3.

Low Handicappers:

Low handicappers have the skills to handle this hole confidently. They can use a 7 iron off the tee, adjusting for potential extra distance due to the summer weather. Precise shot placement towards the center of the expansive green is essential. Avoiding the bunkers off the tee is crucial for setting up birdie opportunities or, better, with accurate shotmaking.
