Hole 13 at Briarwood Country Club is a par 5, 501 yards from the Pro tees and 441 yards from the Women's tees. With a slight dogleg left, this hole presents an interesting challenge for golfers of all levels. It has five bunkers strategically placed around the fairway and green, with three percent of them located greenside. The approximate width of the fairway is 34 yards, giving you plenty of room to hit your tee shot off the tee box without having to worry about running into trouble.

During summer months in Deerfield, Illinois temperatures can reach up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit so it’s important to consider how that might affect ball flight conditions when selecting clubs for both your tee shot and approach shots. Additionally, due to its location near Lake Michigan winds can be quite variable which could also impact club selection depending on their direction and strength.

For those using driver off the tee box, aim slightly right as there is more room than what meets the eye due to some undulations in terrain on that side before reaching out-of-bounds territory; if you are not comfortable with driver then opt for 3 wood or hybrid as they will still offer good distance but provide more accuracy than driver would here given its length (500+ yards). Once you have reached your desired spot on fairway use either 7 iron or 6 iron depending on wind conditions; if windy then go with 6 iron while 7 iron should suffice under normal weather conditions – aiming towards center/left part of green since it slopes down towards water hazard located just beyond green’s edge thus leaving little margin for error when going long/right side . Finally use pitching wedge or 8 iron onto green where 3% bunker count awaits along with 8936 sq ft area making putting relatively easy once you have safely reached this point!
