Hole 12 at Torrey Pines Golf Club's North Course in La Jolla, California is a challenging par 3 with an average distance of 190 yards from the Championship tees. This hole plays slightly shorter for Pro and Men’s tees (174 yards) and even shorter from Women’s tees (159 yards). The green area measures 6479 sq ft and is guarded by two bunkers that account for 3% of its total area. While there is no water hazard on this hole, local weather conditions such as altitude, temperature and wind can have an impact on ball flight performance throughout the year.

For golfers hitting a driver ~217 yards, 7 iron ~140 yards and pitching wedge ~120 yards—a mid-iron off the tee should be sufficient to reach the green. However, due to the two bunkers guarding it—accuracy will be paramount if you want to avoid any penalty strokes. Windy conditions in particular could make club selection tricky so make sure you factor those into your decision making before stepping up onto the tee box!

Club Recommendations

For golfers looking to score on this hole, the key is accuracy. Make sure you select a club that will provide enough distance to reach the green but also one that won't be affected by windy conditions too much. The two bunkers guarding the green can be intimidating so aim for the middle of the fairway and avoid any potential penalty strokes from entering them. Finally, take into account local weather conditions such as altitude, temperature and wind when selecting your club before stepping up onto the tee box!
