Club Recommendations

Low Handicapper:

For low handicappers, this 163 yard par 3 offers a great opportunity for birdie. With the ability to hit their tee shot over 280 yards, they can easily reach the green with a mid to long iron. However, it is important to note that Chicago Golf Club is known for its windy conditions, which can greatly impact ball flight. Therefore, aim towards the center of the large green and take into account any crosswinds when selecting your club. With only two bunkers on this hole and no water hazards in play, focus on hitting an accurate approach shot to give yourself a good chance at birdie or par.

Mid Handicapper:

For mid handicappers who typically hit their drives around 230 yards, this par 3 may require a longer iron or hybrid off the tee. Again, be mindful of any wind conditions and aim for the center of the green to avoid potential hazards. The large size of the green gives you some room for error but try not to miss left as there are two fairway bunkers that could come into play.

High Handicapper:

High handicappers should focus on accuracy rather than distance on this hole. With an average drive distance of 200 yards or less, it may be best to use a shorter club off the tee such as a hybrid or even a long iron depending on your comfort level. Keep in mind that Chicago Golf Club's windy conditions can make it difficult for high handicappers so aim for the center of the green and trust your swing mechanics rather than trying to overpower your shots.

Green Side Bunkers:

There are only two bunkers located near this large green - one short right and one long left - making them easy enough to avoid with proper strategy and execution from all handicap levels.

Fairway Bunkers:

With no fairway bunkers present on this hole, players have more freedom off the tee and can focus on finding the center of the fairway for a good approach shot to the green.

Percent of Bunker on Green:

With only 3% of bunkers located on this green, players have a high chance of avoiding any sand traps with proper club selection and execution. However, it is always important to keep these hazards in mind when planning your shots and aim for the center of the green as a safe play.
