Club Recommendations

Low Handicapper (280+ yards):

As a low handicapper, you have the advantage of distance off the tee. However, on this challenging par 3 at Bay Hill Club & Lodge, it's important to not solely rely on your power. The varying distances for different teebox types and potential weather conditions can greatly impact your ball flight. With four bunkers surrounding the green making up 18% of its total area, precision is key here. Aim for the center of the green and avoid going long or short as that will leave you with a difficult bunker shot.

Mid Handicapper (~230+ yards):

For mid handicappers, this hole may seem daunting due to its length and potential hazards like water or bunkers. However, don't let that intimidate you. Instead, focus on accuracy over distance by choosing a club that allows you to comfortably reach the green without risking any trouble around it. Keep in mind how weather conditions may affect your ball flight and aim for the middle of the green to avoid those pesky bunkers.

High Handicapper (~200+ yards):

As a high handicapper, your main goal should be avoiding mistakes rather than trying to make eagles like our low handicap players do. This means taking into account both distance and accuracy when selecting your club from one of Bay Hill Club & Lodge's shorter tees on this par 3 hole. Be mindful of any wind or temperature changes that could impact your ball flight and aim for an easy chip onto the green instead of going for it all in one shot.

Weather Considerations:

Bay Hill Club & Lodge is located in sunny Orlando, Florida where temperatures can range from hot summers with high humidity to mild winters with occasional rain showers throughout each season.

During hot summer months (June-August), expect longer carry distances off all tees due to thinner air at higher altitudes.

In winter (December-February), cooler temperatures and occasional rain may cause the ball to travel shorter distances.

Wind is also a factor here, so be sure to check wind direction and speed before teeing off.

Percent of Bunker on Green:

With four bunkers surrounding the green, it's important for all handicap levels to take note of their location. For low handicappers, avoid going long or short as that will leave you with a difficult bunker shot. Mid handicappers should aim for accuracy over distance to avoid these hazards altogether. And high handicappers can use these bunkers as a guide when aiming for an easy chip onto the green instead of trying to reach it in one shot.

In conclusion, this par 3 hole at Bay Hill Club & Lodge requires precision and strategic club selection from all handicap levels. Take into account weather conditions and potential hazards such as bunkers when planning your approach shots. Remember, avoiding mistakes is key for high handicappers while low handicappers should focus on maintaining their power without sacrificing accuracy. Keep these tips in mind and you'll have a successful round at this challenging hole!
