Club Recommendations

Low Handicapper: As a low handicapper, you have the ability to hit long and accurate drives. For this hole, your goal should be to set yourself up for an easy approach shot to the green. With a drive of 280+ yards, aim towards the right side of the fairway to avoid the bunker on the left and give yourself a clear shot at the green.

Mid Handicapper: This hole may prove challenging for mid handicappers due to its length and slight dogleg left curvature. Aim for accuracy over distance with your tee shot, targeting the center or slightly right side of the fairway. This will help you avoid any trouble areas and give you a good angle for your approach shot.

High Handicapper: For high handicappers, it's important to focus on avoiding mistakes rather than trying to make birdies or eagles. Your main objective should be keeping your ball in play off the tee. With a drive of around 200+ yards, aim towards the center or slightly left side of the fairway as there is less trouble in that area.

Wind Conditions: Chicago Golf Club is known for its windy conditions throughout all four seasons. Pay attention to wind direction and adjust your club selection accordingly for optimal ball flight.

Percent of Bunker on Green: Despite only having 2% bunker coverage on this green, it's important not to underestimate their impact if you do end up in one. These bunkers are strategically placed around key landing areas near greenside slopes which can make getting out difficult even for skilled players.

Local Weather Tips:

- Spring/Fall - Temperatures can vary greatly during these seasons so pay close attention when selecting clubs as temperature changes can affect ball flight.

- Summer - High humidity levels combined with strong winds can cause balls to fly further than expected.

- Winter - Cold temperatures can reduce distance off clubs by up to 10%, so consider using one extra club for approach shots.
