Hole 14 at Olympia Fields Country Club (North Course) is a long par 4 measuring 410 yards from the men's tees. It features a slight dogleg right, with water coming into play on the left side of the fairway and three bunkers located off to the right. The fairway measures 38 yards wide, while the green area is 9796 sq ft. Greenside bunkers make up 3% of this total area.

This hole can be challenging in any season due to its length; however, golfers should take note that wind conditions may vary greatly depending on what time of year they are playing. In summer months when temperatures are high, winds tend to pick up in the afternoon which could affect ball flight significantly for longer shots such as this one. During winter months, cold temperatures can cause balls to lose some distance compared to warmer weather so club selection should be adjusted accordingly.

For those hitting from the men’s tees, an ideal tee shot would require a driver or 3 wood hit around 220-230 yards down the center of fairway avoiding both sides of trouble – water and bunker respectively - setting up an approach shot anywhere between 130-140 yards with a 7 iron or pitching wedge into this large green complex guarded by three bunkers on each side along with water hazard short right if you get too aggressive looking for birdie opportunities!

Club Recommendations

When playing this hole, the best strategy is to play conservatively and focus on accuracy over distance. Aim for a spot in the center of the fairway so that you have an easier approach shot into the green. If possible, avoid going right as there are three bunkers located off to the side which can make it difficult to get out of if your ball lands in them. Also be mindful of wind conditions when selecting clubs as they can affect ball flight significantly. Finally, take time to assess your approach shot before hitting it since this large green complex has three greenside bunkers and water hazard short right making it important to choose an accurate club selection with enough spin control for soft landing on this undulating surface!
