Hole 9 at The Grand Golf Club in San Diego, California is a par 3 of 156 yards from the championship tees. It has a handicap rating of 11 and is playable for golfers of all levels. From the pro tees it measures 150 yards, men's 150 yards, seniors' 140 yards, women's 133 yards and senior women's 111 yards.

The green on this hole measures 10379 sq ft with 3 bunkers accounting for 6% of the total area around the green. There are no water hazards to contend with on this hole and local weather conditions can vary drastically across each season due to its coastal location near San Diego Bay; wind speeds can range between 5-20 mph depending on the time of year while temperature may drop as low as 40 degrees Fahrenheit during winter months or reach up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit in summer months. Altitude does not have any significant impact here due to its proximity to sea level.

For tee shots from championship tees, an average golfer should use their 7 iron (140 yard carry) aiming towards center left side of fairway which will leave them within pitching wedge range (~120 yard carry). For those playing off shorter tees such as men’s/women’s/senior’s/senior women’s, they could opt for using a hybrid club instead since it offers more control than irons when hitting into greenside bunkers that come into play if shots go long or right off target.

Club Recommendations

When hitting into the green, golfers should be aware of the 3 bunkers that come into play. A safe approach shot would be to aim towards center left side of green and land it short of the pin position, leaving them with a relatively easy chip or putt for birdie. Depending on wind conditions, they may need to adjust their club selection accordingly as well as their target landing spot in order to get close enough for an easier birdie attempt. Finally, due to its small size (10379 sq ft), putting is key here; golfers should take extra time with reading greens and choosing correct line/speed when attempting putts from various distances.
