Club Recommendations

Low Handicapper: For low handicappers, the key to success on this hole is precision. With a drive of 280+ yards, you have the ability to reach the green in one shot. However, be mindful of any wind or temperature changes that may affect your ball flight and aim for the center of the green to avoid any potential hazards. The large size of this green gives you plenty of room for error, but do not underestimate the small bunker located near the green.

Mid Handicapper: As a mid handicapper with a drive averaging around 230+ yards, it may be wise to play it safe on this hole. Take into consideration any weather conditions and adjust your club selection accordingly. Aiming for the center of the green will give you a good chance at par or better while avoiding any potential water hazard or bunkers.

High Handicapper: For high handicappers who struggle with distance off the tee (averaging around 200+ yards), playing smart is crucial on this hole. Take note of how wind and temperature may impact your shots and choose an appropriate club based on those factors. It's best to aim for safety rather than trying to make an aggressive shot towards the pin.

Colloquial Lingo Tip: Keep in mind that there is only one "fairway bunker" located near this green, so don't let it intimidate you! Instead, focus on hitting a solid approach shot onto this large green and avoid ending up in that pesky fairway bunker.

Weather Tip: In Chicago's cold winter months, altitude can greatly affect ball flight due to denser air. Be sure to adjust your club selection accordingly if needed when playing during these colder seasons at Chicago Golf Club.
