Hole 14 at Briarwood Country Club is a par 4, measuring 400 yards from the Pro tees, 370 yards from the Men's tees, 340 yards from the Senior's tees and 311 yards from the Women's tees. This slight dogleg right has three bunkers located on it; two of them are greenside bunkers comprising 2% of total bunker count. The fairway width is 34 yards with an 8844 sq ft green area.

In summer months, when temperatures are high and humidity can be oppressive in Deerfield, Illinois 60015 (the location of Briarwood Country Club), golfers need to take extra caution off the tee as ball flight might not travel as far due to heat affecting air density. During spring and fall months when weather conditions tend to be milder temperature-wise but windy days can occur more often than other seasons, golfers should factor in that their approach shots may require more club selection than normal due to strong winds pushing their balls away or towards certain areas of this hole. In winter months when temperatures dip below freezing and snowfall occurs occasionally, golfers must adjust for slower greens speeds which will affect how much spin they get on their putts after landing on the green.

Given these seasonal variations in weather conditions at Briarwood Country Club throughout each year, players should consider using driver for Pro tee boxes (~217 yard average carry distance), 7 iron (~140 yard average carry distance) or pitching wedge (~120 yard average carry distance) depending on which tee box they’re playing off of for both their tee shot and approach shot respectively so that they have enough control over where their ball lands without sacrificing too much length off the tee or into the green if needed.

Club Recommendations

Golfers should also be aware of the three bunkers located on this hole, two of which are greenside. Players need to adjust their tee shot trajectory and club selection in order to avoid landing in any of these bunkers by aiming slightly left off the tee for Pro tees (~217 yard average carry distance) and 7 iron (~140 yard average carry distance). Additionally, players should consider using a higher lofted club (like a 9-iron or wedge) when hitting into the green as it will help them control their ball flight better so that they can land closer to the pin without fear of ending up in one of those two greenside bunkers. Lastly, golfers should pay attention to wind direction at all times during their round as strong gusts could push their balls away from or towards certain areas around this hole making it more difficult for them to score well if they’re not prepared accordingly.
