In terms of club selection off the tee, most golfers should consider hitting driver to take advantage of the slight dogleg left and reach as far down the fairway as possible before approaching the green.

The approach shot into Hole 7 will vary depending on how well you hit your drive but generally speaking most golfers will want to use either a 7 iron or pitching wedge given that these clubs provide 140-120 yard distances respectively. Wind conditions may also play a factor here so pay attention to local weather patterns throughout each season; altitude could affect ball flight while temperature and wind speed can influence accuracy when swinging for this green area that measures 14924 sq ft in size.
