Club Recommendations

High Handicapper (20+): As a high handicapper, your main objective on this hole should be to avoid any potential hazards and focus on hitting the fairway off the tee. With an average drive distance of 200 yards, you may want to consider using a hybrid or long iron for better accuracy. The slight dogleg left can also make it challenging for high handicappers, so aim slightly right off the tee to give yourself a better angle for your approach shot.

Mid Handicapper (10-19): For mid handicappers, this hole offers some scoring opportunities if played strategically. Your average drive distance of 230+ yards gives you enough length to reach the green in regulation. However, beware of the three bunkers that are strategically placed around the fairway and near the green. Consider taking an extra club on your approach shot as there is minimal room for error with only 38 yards of fairway width.

Low Handicapper (0-9): As a low handicapper, you have both length and accuracy off the tee which sets up nicely for this par 4 hole. With an average drive distance of 280+ yards, you can take advantage of this slight dogleg left by aiming towards the corner with a driver or strong wood club. This will leave you with a shorter approach shot into one of Chicago Golf Club's larger greens at 7462 sq ft. Keep in mind that even though there are only three bunkers on this hole, they are well-placed and can easily come into play if not careful.

Weather Impact: Throughout each season at Chicago Golf Club, weather conditions such as temperature and wind can greatly impact ball flight on Hole #10. In colder temperatures or strong headwinds from fall through spring seasons, expect less carry distance off the tee and adjust accordingly by choosing longer clubs than usual to compensate.

Green Side Bunkers: Although only making up 2% of the green, these bunkers can be tricky to navigate for all handicap levels. High handicappers should aim to avoid them altogether, while mid and low handicappers may have a better chance at getting up and down with their short game skills. Keep in mind that the green slopes from back to front, so try to leave your approach shot below the hole for an easier putt.

Fairway Bunkers: The three fairway bunkers on this hole are strategically placed and can come into play if not careful off the tee. High handicappers should aim towards the right side of the fairway as there is more room for error. Mid and low handicappers can potentially carry these bunkers with their longer drives but should still be aware of their location when choosing clubs off the tee.

Overall, Hole #10 at Chicago Golf Club offers a challenge for all handicap levels with its narrow fairway, well-placed hazards, and varying weather conditions throughout each season. By playing smart and adjusting club selection accordingly, you can set yourself up for success on this par 4 hole. Remember to focus on accuracy over distance off the tee and precise approach shots to give yourself scoring opportunities on one of Chicago Golf Club's most challenging holes.
