Hole 9 at Torrey Pines Golf Club's North Course is a challenging par 5 that plays around 480 yards from the Men's tees. The slight dogleg right requires an accurate tee shot to avoid the three fairway bunkers and find the generous 27 yard wide fairway. With a driver, most golfers should be able to reach the green in two shots, however, accuracy is key as there are two greenside bunkers protecting this 7155 sq ft green. Depending on local weather conditions such as wind speed and direction, altitude and temperature, golfers may need to adjust their club selection for both their tee shot and approach shot in order to hit it close enough for a birdie attempt.

Club Recommendations

1. For the tee shot, choose a club that will hit it far enough to give you a good look at reaching the green in two shots, but also one that is accurate and can avoid the three fairway bunkers.

2. Consider local weather conditions when selecting your club for both your tee shot and approach shot as this will affect how far you need to hit it.

3. Aim for the center of the 27 yard wide fairway on your tee shot so you have plenty of room to work with on your approach shot into the green.

4. If possible, try to leave yourself an uphill lie going into your second shot as this will help reduce spin and provide more control over distance and accuracy while still allowing you to reach the 7155 sq ft green in two shots if played correctly.

5. Be aware of where the two greenside bunkers are located; they may come into play depending on what kind of shape you find yourself in after hitting off from the tee box or with regards to any windy conditions during playtime which could push or pull your ball towards them unawares!
