This hole can be particularly challenging in windy conditions due to its length and dogleg shape, so keep an eye on local weather when playing this course throughout all four seasons! With a driver distance of 217 yards, you should have no problem reaching the fairway off the tee; however if you're feeling adventurous or need to make up some strokes try using your 7 iron for 140 yard shots or your pitching wedge for 120 yard shots to give yourself better chances at hitting closer distances into greenside bunkers.

Club Recommendations

If you are able to reach the green in regulation, be mindful of the bunkers surrounding it. The green is large and can leave a golfer vulnerable to missing shots if they don't choose their club wisely. If your approach shot leaves you with more than 100 yards out, use your 7 iron for accuracy and control; if within 100 yards, try using your pitching wedge or 9 iron for greater precision. Finally, remember that putting on this hole requires patience as the green is slightly sloped from back-to-front so make sure to read it carefully before making any stroke!
