Hole 5 at Seminole Golf Club is a 202 yard par 3 from the championship tees. It has a handicap of 12, making it one of the more difficult holes on the course. The green is 7216 square feet and surrounded by 8 bunkers, accounting for 38% of all bunkers on this hole.

This hole plays shorter during cooler months when temperatures are lower and air is denser, allowing your ball to travel further than usual. During warmer months, however, you should expect to hit 1-2 clubs longer due to higher temperatures which reduce ball flight distance. Wind can also be an issue here so make sure you factor in any gusts that may affect your shot before hitting off the tee or approach shot into the green.

If you're playing from the championship tees with a driver, aim just left of center as there's plenty of room between out-of-bounds and trees to find some fairway if you miss slightly right or left. From there you'll have a mid iron approach into an elevated green protected by 8 greenside bunkers - 4 short side and 4 long side - so choose your club wisely depending on pin placement!

Club Recommendations

The green is quite large, so depending on pin placement you may want to leave yourself an uphill putt for a better chance at making par. If the pin is located in the front of the green, aim for the center or even slightly back and let gravity do its work.

Finally, be sure to factor in any elevation changes when selecting your club and aiming your shot as this hole plays longer than its 202 yard distance!
