Hole 14 at Bradenton Country Club is a challenging par 4 with a slight dogleg left. From the championship tees, this hole measures 390 yards and has a handicap of 4. The fairway width is approximately 35 yards, making it important to hit an accurate tee shot in order to avoid the bunkers that line both sides of the fairway.

For the average golfer, I would recommend using a driver off the tee as it can reach distances up to 217 yards. However, be mindful of any wind conditions as they may affect ball flight and potentially make it difficult to control your shot.

The approach shot will likely require either a mid-iron or short iron depending on how far you hit your drive. With an average distance of around 140 yards for a 7 iron and about 120 yards for a pitching wedge, choose your club accordingly based on how much distance you need to cover.

One thing to note about this hole is that there are only four bunkers on the entire course, but they are strategically placed near the green which measures at just over 7000 square feet. This means that greenside bunkers account for less than two percent of total bunker coverage on this hole.

In terms of weather considerations, being located in Florida means that temperatures can vary greatly throughout different seasons. In warmer months like spring and summer, higher temperatures may cause balls to fly farther while colder winter months may result in shorter shots due to denser air.

Overall, Hole 14 at Bradenton Country Club requires accuracy off the tee and precise club selection for approach shots in order to successfully navigate through its challenges and achieve optimal scoring results.

Club Recommendations

Playing Tips:

1. Use a driver off the tee to maximize distance, but be cautious of wind conditions.

2. Aim for the center or slightly right side of the fairway to avoid the bunkers on both sides.

3. Take note of your average distances with mid-irons and short irons to choose the appropriate club for your approach shot.

4. Be mindful of any changes in weather that may affect ball flight and adjust accordingly.

5. Pay attention to where the four strategically placed greenside bunkers are located when planning your approach shot.

6. Consider practicing shots from different lies (fairway, rough, bunker) before playing this hole to prepare for potential challenges during play.

7. If you find yourself in one of the few greenside bunkers, focus on getting out with an accurate sand shot rather than trying to reach the pin directly.

8. Keep in mind that accuracy is more important than distance on this challenging par 4 hole - aim for consistent shots rather than trying to hit it as far as possible every time.
