Club Recommendations

1. Aim for accuracy off the tee: With a narrow fairway and water hazards in play, it's important to focus on hitting your driver accurately rather than trying to hit it as far as possible.

2. Take note of wind conditions: The location and altitude of this course can lead to varying wind speeds, so be sure to take that into account when selecting clubs for approach shots.

3. Consider laying up: For average golfers who may not have the distance to reach the green in two shots, consider laying up with a shorter club to avoid trouble and set yourself up for an easier approach shot.

4. Avoid bunkers strategically placed throughout the hole: While they only make up 1% of total bunker coverage on this hole, they are still something to keep in mind when planning your shots.

5. Plan your approach shot carefully: With a large green area, there is room for error but also plenty of opportunities for strategic play. Take into account any potential hazards or obstacles near the green before making your approach shot.

6. Keep track of handicap rating: As one of the more difficult holes on the course with a handicap rating of 6, don't get discouraged if you struggle here - even skilled players find this hole challenging!

7. Stay focused until the end: This long par five requires concentration until you sink that final putt - don't let fatigue or frustration affect your gameplay on this demanding hole.

8. Practice patience and smart decision-making: Don't try risky shots just because you want to make up ground quickly - instead practice patience and make smart decisions based on your skill level and current conditions.
