Hole 12 at Olympia Fields Country Club (North Course) is a par 4, measuring 389 yards from the Championship tees. This slight dogleg right requires a tee shot of 217 yards to reach the fairway, which measures 33 yards wide and favors those who can shape their shots. The approach shot must be carefully planned as there are four greenside bunkers that account for 4% of the total green area, and any mis-hit could result in an unwanted penalty stroke. Given its length, this hole can play particularly challenging when played into a headwind due to its altitude or during cold weather months when ball flight may be affected by temperature and humidity levels.

Club Recommendations

1. Choose the right club for your tee shot: Select a club that will give you the distance needed to reach the fairway, but also one that allows you to shape your shot in order to best take advantage of the 33-yard wide landing area.

2. Use the wind and temperature conditions to your advantage: Take into account any headwinds or cold weather when selecting a club and adjusting ball flight accordingly. A lower ball flight can help reduce roll out while a higher trajectory may be beneficial if there is no wind present on this hole.

3. Plan your approach shot carefully: Be mindful of where you are aiming as four greenside bunkers make up 4% of total green area and should be avoided at all costs in order to avoid an unwanted penalty stroke. Aiming slightly short or long of these bunkers can help ensure accuracy on each approach shot.

4. Consider playing conservatively: This par 4 is particularly challenging due to its length, so it may be wise not to go for broke with every tee shot in hopes of setting up an eagle putt; instead, opt for a more conservative strategy by hitting shorter shots off the tee and leaving yourself with manageable second shots into this large green complex from safer spots around it's perimeter..
