Due to its location in Augusta, Georgia (30904), golfers can expect weather conditions to vary significantly across all four seasons. During springtime, temperatures range from mild to warm with occasional thunderstorms while summer brings hot and humid days with frequent rain showers. Fall usually brings cooler temperatures but still some humidity while winter months are cool and dry with occasional snowfall possible in December or January. These changing conditions will affect ball flight so golfers should be prepared to adjust their club selection accordingly based on wind speed and direction as well as altitude changes throughout their round.

For tee shots, golfers should aim for the center of the fairway using a 7-iron since they typically hit that club 140 yards off the tee; however if there’s any significant headwind they may want to switch clubs depending on how much yardage they need to cover before reaching the green area. For approach shots into this large green complex, players can use a pitching wedge or 9-iron depending on their distance control capabilities since these two clubs have similar distances (~120 yards). In order to avoid running through greenside bunkers players should take care when selecting their landing spots by taking into account both elevation changes along with potential wind gusts that could impact ball trajectory during flight time towards target areas near pin placements..
