Hole 9 at Spyglass Hill Golf Course is a challenging yet strategic par 4. Located in Pebble Beach, California, this hole measures 431 yards from the championship tees and has a handicap of 5. The slight dogleg right shape of the fairway requires accuracy off the tee to avoid being blocked out by trees on the right side.

The average golfer should consider using a driver for their tee shot, as it will provide enough distance to reach the fairway while also avoiding any potential hazards. With an average drive of 217 yards, they should aim for the left side of the fairway to give themselves a better angle into the green.

Speaking of which, this large green measures at over 10,000 square feet and only has three bunkers guarding it. However, these greenside bunkers make up less than one percent of total bunker coverage on this hole. This means that there is more room for error when approaching with either a pitching wedge or seven iron (with distances ranging from approximately 120-140 yards) depending on pin placement.

It's important to note that weather can play a factor on this hole due to its location in Northern California. In winter months, colder temperatures and strong winds may impact ball flight conditions and require golfers to club up accordingly for their approach shots.

Overall, Hole 9 at Spyglass Hill Golf Course rewards both accuracy and strategy off the tee while providing some room for error on approach shots. With careful club selection and execution, players can set themselves up nicely for scoring well on this challenging par four.
