Club Recommendations

Low Handicapper (280+ yards):

As a low handicapper, your main focus on this hole should be accuracy off the tee. With an average fairway width of 47 yards and four bunkers strategically placed along the fairway, it is important to avoid these hazards and secure a good position for your approach shot. With a drive distance of over 280 yards, you have the advantage of being able to use a shorter club for your approach shot, allowing for better control and precision. The green is also relatively free from bunkers, giving you a great opportunity to make birdie or even eagle.

Mid Handicapper (~230+ yards):

For mid handicappers, this hole can still present some challenges but with smart play and course management, scoring well is definitely achievable. It is recommended to aim for accuracy rather than distance off the tee as there are four bunkers that could come into play if not careful. A drive distance of around 230+ yards will leave you with a longer approach shot but still manageable with proper club selection. Keep in mind that there is only 1% bunker coverage on the green so take advantage of this opportunity when planning your approach.

High Handicapper (~200+ yards):

As a high handicapper, avoiding mistakes should be your top priority on this hole. With an average fairway width of 47 yards and four strategically placed bunkers along the fairway, it's important to prioritize accuracy over distance off the tee. Your drive may not reach as far as other players but by staying out of trouble and finding the fairway, you give yourself a chance at par or bogey at worst. The small percentage (1%) of bunker coverage on the green means that if you do find yourself in one of these hazards during your round, it won't significantly impact your score.

Local Weather:

The weather at Landings Club can vary greatly depending on which season you are playing in. During the summer months, temperatures can reach up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit with high humidity, which may result in the ball traveling slightly further due to decreased air density. In contrast, during the winter months, temperatures can drop down to 40 degrees Fahrenheit and strong winds can be a factor on this hole. It's important to take these factors into consideration when planning your shots.

Altitude:

Landings Club is located at an elevation of approximately 30 feet above sea level. This should not have a significant impact on ball flight but it's always good to be aware of any changes in altitude that could affect your club selection.

In conclusion, the 7th hole at Landings Club offers a great opportunity for low handicappers to make birdie or even eagle while still being challenging enough for mid and high handicappers to score well by prioritizing accuracy over distance off the tee. With only four bunkers along the fairway and minimal bunker coverage on the green, players of all levels have a good chance at avoiding trouble and scoring well if they strategize smartly according to their handicap level and weather conditions.
