The 9th hole at Seminole Golf Club in North Palm Beach, Florida is a par 5 that plays 494 yards from the championship tees. It is a slight dogleg left with 8 bunkers scattered around the fairway and 2% of them are greenside. The approximate width of the fairway is 33 yards, giving players plenty of room to hit their tee shot off the tee.

In terms of strategy for this hole, it’s important to consider local weather conditions across all four seasons when playing here. During summer months, temperatures can get quite high so golfers should be aware that ball flight may be impacted by altitude and wind on this particular hole. In winter months, temperatures tend to be lower but winds could still affect ball flight distance and direction.

For an average golfer who hits a driver ~217 yards, 7 iron ~140 yards and pitching wedge ~120 yards - they should aim for the right side of the fairway off the tee as there are no hazards down that side allowing them more room for error on their second shot into green which has a relatively large area (5589 sq ft). With some luck, they may even have a chance at getting onto green in two shots if they manage to avoid any bunkers or water hazards along their way!

Club Recommendations

For this hole, it is important to select the correct club off the tee. The fairway is wide enough that a driver can be used without fear of going into any hazards, but hitting too far could leave you with an awkward second shot. A hybrid or 3 wood may be a better option for some players in order to ensure accuracy and keep them away from bunkers and water hazards on their approach.

On your second shot, aim for the center of the green as there are no significant slopes or undulations that will affect ball flight. This will also give you more room to work with if you do end up being slightly offline on your approach.

Finally, when playing greenside bunkers make sure to take extra care when deciding what club to use so as not to overshoot the green while still getting close enough for an easy chip onto the putting surface.
