Club Recommendations

Low Handicap (Driver 280+ Yards):

Low handicappers can confidently employ their driver off the tee, aiming for a distance of around 280 yards to avoid trouble. For approach shots, precise iron play is essential. The generous fairway width of 38 yards offers room for error, but players should still pay attention to local weather conditions that could affect ball flight.

Medium Handicap (Driver ~240 Yards):

Medium handicappers can consider using a longer iron off the tee, taking advantage of the wider fairway. Hitting around 240 yards off the tee is still a good target. Approach shots require accuracy with irons. Awareness of the six bunkers on this hole is crucial.

High Handicap (Driver 200+ Yards):

High handicappers can opt for a longer iron off the tee, prioritizing accuracy over distance. Staying out of trouble is essential. Approach shots should be approached with care to avoid the bunkers. Pay attention to local weather conditions' potential impact on ball flight.

The vast green area measuring 11,300 sq ft provides room for approach shots, and players can aim for the middle section of the generous 38-yard fairway to maximize accuracy. Considering local weather conditions, careful club selection for both tee shots and approach shots is essential.
