The fairway measures 40 yards wide on average and there are five bunkers in play, three of which are greenside. This hole requires strategic shot placement off the tee as well as accuracy into the green.

The weather can be unpredictable in Deerfield, Illinois so you should account for any changes in altitude, temperature or wind when considering your approach to this hole. During summer months temperatures can reach up to 85 degrees Fahrenheit while winter months drop down to an average low of 20 degrees Fahrenheit; all four seasons bring their own unique challenges with regards to ball flight conditions and holes.

For most golfers hitting from the championship tees, a driver followed by an accurate mid-iron will put them within striking distance of the pin if they hit it straight off the tee box and avoid sand traps near the green area which measures 11024 square feet total. A good club selection for this hole would be a driver followed by either a 7 iron (140 yard range) or pitching wedge (120 yard range).
