Hole 9 at Augusta National Golf Club is a par 4, 460 yards from the championship tees. It has a slight dogleg left and requires an accurate tee shot to avoid the single greenside bunker that makes up 1% of the total green area. The fairway width of 39 yards offers plenty of room for your drive, but accuracy is still key here as there are trees on either side of the fairway. Depending on weather conditions (which can vary significantly throughout all four seasons), you should be able to reach this hole with two shots if you hit your driver around 217 yards and 7 iron around 140 yards or pitching wedge around 120 yards. With its moderate length and lack of water hazards, Hole 9 at Augusta National Golf Course provides an excellent opportunity for golfers looking to improve their scorecard.
