Hole 5 at Briarwood Country Club in Deerfield, Illinois 60015 is a long par 5 with slight dogleg right. From the Pro tees it measures out to 545 yards, while the Men's tees measure out to 521 yards and Seniors' and Women's tees measure 500 yards and 445 yards respectively. The fairway width of 42 yards gives you some room off the tee but requires accuracy as there are 6 bunkers throughout this hole. There are 3% greenside bunkers which can make for an interesting approach shot if you don't get your drive close enough to reach in two shots. Depending on the weather conditions during each season, altitude, temperature and wind may impact ball flight conditions so be sure to factor that into your strategy when playing this hole. With a driver distance of 217 yards, 7 iron 140 yard and pitching wedge 120 yard you should consider using a driver or 3 wood off the tee followed by either a hybrid or long iron onto the green depending on how far away from the pin you land after your first shot!

Playing Tips:

2. Use a driver or 3 wood off the tee to maximize distance while avoiding the 6 bunkers that line the fairway.

3. If you don't get close enough with your first shot, consider using a hybrid or long iron for your second shot instead of trying to reach in two shots which may result in landing in one of the greenside bunkers.

4. Be aware of your distances when playing this hole - use a driver for 217 yards, 7 iron for 140 yards and pitching wedge for 120 yards as appropriate depending on where you land after each shot!
