Hole 10 at Olympia Fields Country Club (North Course) is a par 4 measuring 429 yards from the championship tees. The slight dogleg left requires players to shape their drive around the corner, with 8 bunkers scattered throughout the fairway and water coming into play on the right side of the hole. Players should be aware that green-side bunkers make up 3% of total hazards here, so accuracy off the tee will be key in setting up an approach shot. With an average width of 36 yards for its fairway, this hole offers some room to work with off the tee but still demands precision in order to avoid trouble.

The 9888 sq ft green is reachable for most golfers hitting their driver 217 yards or less; however, depending on wind direction and strength it may require a layup shot or iron off the tee followed by a wedge into the green. During summer months when temperatures are higher and humidity levels rise, golfers may find themselves dealing with more difficult conditions due to increased ball flight distances caused by hotter air masses rising faster than cooler ones do during winter months when temperatures are lower and humidity levels drop. This could mean needing one extra club when playing Hole 10 during different times of year - especially if facing strong headwinds - so pay attention to local weather conditions before making your club selection!
