Hole 12 at Augusta National Golf Club is a 155-yard par 3. This hole has three greenside bunkers, making up 2% of the total green area (4084 sq ft). The tee shot must be carefully placed to avoid missing the green and having to take an unplayable lie in one of the bunkers. Depending on wind conditions, club selection for this hole can vary greatly. In light winds, a 7 iron or pitching wedge should suffice; however, if there is any significant breeze it may require anywhere from a 5 iron to even a hybrid depending on how much help you need into the green.

The altitude at Augusta National Golf Club does not significantly affect ball flight due to its low elevation (~500 feet) so temperature and wind will have more of an impact on your shot than anything else. During spring months when temperatures are milder and winds tend to be lighter, it's best to play conservatively with your tee shot as too aggressive could result in missing the green entirely or landing in one of the deep bunkers that guard it. In summer months when temperatures are higher and winds stronger, you may need extra club off the tee but still err slightly left or right rather than going for flagstick directly as it can lead to trouble if you miss by even just a little bit.
