Hole 18 at Torrey Pines Golf Club North Course is a par 5 that plays from 520 yards from the championship tees, 485 yards from the pro tees, 472 yards from the men's tees and 460 yards for women. The fairway width is 26 yards wide with a slight dogleg right. There are 6 bunkers on this hole but only 3% of them are located greenside. This hole can be challenging due to local weather conditions across all four seasons, especially how altitude, temperature and/or wind may affect ball flight conditions. With an average drive of 217 yards and 7 iron of 140 yards it would be wise to hit driver off the tee followed by lay up shot short of bunkers before hitting wedge into green for your approach shot.

Club Recommendations

1. Take advantage of the wide fairway and hit driver off the tee to maximize distance while staying in play.

2. Aim your drive slightly left of center as a slight dogleg right will bring you closer to the green on your second shot.

3. Consider laying up short of the bunkers for an easier approach into the green, allowing for more control over your third shot into the green.

4. Be mindful of local weather conditions that can affect ball flight such as altitude, temperature and wind direction which may require adjustments from hole-to-hole or even during a single round of golf..

5. Utilize a 7 iron for your approach shot since it is 140 yards away from average drive distance of 217 yards; this club should provide enough loft to land softly on the green with minimal roll out once landed on surface 6 . Play conservatively around greenside bunkers because they are only 3% likely to be encountered when playing this hole
