Club Recommendations

Low Handicap: Low handicappers can use their precision off the tee. Utilizing the driver for maximum distance is recommended, but they must avoid veering too far left due to the trees. For approach shots, irons (7-9) or hybrids (3-5) work well, considering the altitude's impact on ball flight.

Medium Handicap: Medium handicappers can also opt for the driver, focusing on accuracy. Avoiding the trees on either side of the fairway is crucial. Approach shots can be made with irons (7-9) or hybrids (3-5) for better control.

High Handicap: High handicappers should prioritize accuracy and choose the driver for distance. Staying out of trouble off the tee is essential. Approach shots can be made with irons (7-9) or hybrids (3-5) to maintain control.

The large size and lack of bunkers on the green offer flexibility in pin placement and shot selection. Players may benefit from a higher lofted putter (8-10) to navigate undulations or breaks. Reading putts carefully and getting the speed right is crucial for a chance at birdie or par.
