The tee shot on this hole will require accuracy as there are trees lining both sides of the fairway. Depending on local weather conditions such as wind direction, altitude and temperature, golfers may need to adjust their club selection in order to hit a successful approach shot into this green which slopes gently towards the front left side of it. For example, during summer months when temperatures are higher or if there is significant wind blowing right-to-left, golfers may choose to use a longer iron (7 iron ~140 yards) or hybrid instead of driver (~217 yards). This should be taken into account when selecting clubs for your tee shot in order to have an optimal approach into this green with your wedge (~120yards).

Club Recommendations

In addition, the two bunkers located on the right side of this hole should be avoided as much as possible. Golfers should aim to land their tee shots left of center in order to give themselves a better chance at hitting the green with their approach shot and avoiding any potential hazards. Finally, when putting on this green it is important to read the break correctly since it slopes gently towards the front left side. This will help you avoid any 3-putts or worse!
