Club Recommendations

Low Handicapper (280+ yards):

Off the tee, take advantage of your distance and aim for the right side of the fairway to avoid the slight dogleg left. This will give you a clear shot at reaching the green in two, setting up a potential eagle opportunity. Be mindful of any changes in altitude or wind conditions that may affect your ball flight. As you approach the green, be precise with your shots as there is only one bunker on this hole and it sits just off to the side of the putting surface.

Mid Handicapper (~230+ yards):

With slightly less distance off the tee, aim for a spot on the right side of the fairway to set yourself up for an easier second shot. Keep in mind that precision is key here due to a smaller green area and only one bunker guarding it. Take into account any changes in weather conditions throughout each season that may impact your ball flight.

High Handicapper (~200+ yards):

For high handicappers looking to avoid mistakes on this par 5, play conservatively by aiming for a spot towards the center or left side of fairway. With limited bunkers and water hazards not coming into play on this hole, focus on keeping your shots straight and avoiding trouble areas around small greenside bunkers.

Weather Considerations:

Aspen Glen Club experiences varying weather conditions throughout each season which can greatly impact ball flight due to its high altitude location. In warmer seasons like summer and fall when temperatures are higher, balls tend to fly further while colder seasons such as winter bring denser air resulting in shorter distances off tees.

Green Conditions:

The green area measures at 9581 square feet with only one bunker located just off its edge - making it crucial for players at all levels to be precise with their approaches onto this relatively small target area.
