Hole 2 at Shadowridge Golf Club is a challenging par 4 with a slight dogleg left. From the championship tees, this hole measures 390 yards and has a handicap of 7. The fairway is approximately 38 yards wide, providing some room for error off the tee.

To start your round on Hole 2, it's important to note that Vista, California experiences mild weather throughout the year. However, during the summer months (June-August), temperatures can reach up to high-80s and low-90s which may impact ball flight conditions due to increased air density.

For your tee shot on this hole, I recommend using your driver as it will give you the best chance of reaching the green in regulation. With an average distance of around 217 yards off the tee, you should aim for accuracy rather than distance on this slightly curving hole. Keep in mind that there are three bunkers strategically placed along the fairway and one greenside bunker as a small percentage of total bunkers on this hole.

On your approach shot to the green, take into account that there is water located just beyond and left of the green. This means that if you tend to hit draws or hooks with longer irons or woods, consider aiming slightly right towards safer ground near one of those few scattered bunkers instead.

Speaking of club selection for your approach shot from around ~140 yards out (using a seven iron) or ~120 yards out (using pitching wedge), keep in mind that there are only two smallish greenside bunkers guarding against short shots here - so be sure not to overclub too much!

Overall though when playing from these distances onto this relatively flat but undulating putting surface measuring about ~6633 square feet (~122 feet deep by roughly ~54 feet wide per side). That said however given its relatively shallow depth compared against width - don't miss long as there are some subtle undulations that can make putting a little trickier than it seems at first glance.

Good luck on Hole 2!

Club Recommendations

1. Use your driver off the tee to maximize distance and give yourself the best chance of reaching the green in regulation.

2. Aim for accuracy rather than distance on this slightly curving hole, as there are three strategically placed bunkers along the fairway.

3. Take into account any potential impact on ball flight due to increased air density during summer months, especially if you tend to hit draws or hooks with longer clubs.

4. When approaching the green, be aware of water located beyond and left of the green. If you struggle with draws or hooks, aim slightly right towards safer ground near one of the scattered bunkers.

5. Keep in mind that there are only two small greenside bunkers guarding against short shots onto this relatively flat but undulating putting surface measuring ~6633 square feet (~122 feet deep by ~54 feet wide per side).

6. Avoid missing long on your approach shot, as subtle undulations can make putting more challenging than it appears at first glance.

7. Pay attention to club selection when playing from around ~140 yards out (using a seven iron) or ~120 yards out (using pitching wedge). Don't overclub too much as there are only two small greenside bunkers to contend with.
