Hole 18 at Briarwood Country Club is a par 4 that plays 395 yards from the championship tees, 377 yards from the men's tees, 363 yards from the senior's tees and 347 yards from the women's tee. It has a slight dogleg left with an approximate fairway width of 40 yards. The green area measures 11270 sq ft and has three bunkers in total, two of which are greenside bunkers as a % of total. This hole can be affected by local weather conditions throughout all four seasons; during summer months, high temperatures may cause balls to travel further off the tee while winter months may bring colder temperatures and windy days that could affect ball flight patterns.

The ideal shot for this hole would be to hit your driver or 3-wood approximately 217 yards off the tee down the middle of fairway towards center-right side for optimal approach angle into green. From there you should have around 140 yard shot with your 7 iron (or pitching wedge if distance allows) onto green - but beware! Even though there are only 2% bunker on green they still require precision when approaching them so make sure to plan accordingly.

Club Recommendations

When playing this hole during summer months, be aware of the higher temperatures and potential for increased ball flight. You may need to adjust your club selection off the tee in order to avoid any hazards or out-of-bounds areas. During winter months, you'll want to prepare for cold temperatures and windy conditions; make sure you have a plan for how you will hit into the green with these elements in mind.

Overall, this hole requires strategic planning and precision when approaching it - so take your time on each shot! Focus on accuracy over distance here as hitting too far could lead to trouble down the fairway or around the green area. With that being said, don't be afraid to challenge yourself by taking on some riskier shots if you feel confident about them - just remember that even small adjustments can make big differences in terms of scoring here at Hole 18!
