Club Recommendations

High Handicapper:

The 14th hole at Panther Creek Country Club is a great opportunity for high handicappers to make up some strokes. With the shortest teebox distance being only 109 yards, it's important to take advantage of this shorter hole and aim for the center of the green. The small green area makes precision key, so be sure to choose an appropriate club that you can hit accurately. Keep in mind that wind conditions may impact your ball flight, so adjust accordingly and don't be afraid to aim slightly left or right depending on the direction of the wind.

Medium Handicapper:

For medium handicappers, this Par 3 offers a good chance for birdie with its varying teebox distances ranging from 134-164 yards. However, accuracy is still crucial as any shots off target could find one of the three fairway bunkers surrounding the green. Be mindful of any changes in wind speed or direction as it can greatly affect your shot distance. If you're confident with your short game, consider aiming for a spot closer to the pin rather than playing safe towards the middle of the green.

Low Handicapper:

As always, low handicappers are looking for every opportunity to score big on Par 5s like this one. With distances ranging from 140-191 yards and no water hazards or significant bunkering around the green, taking an aggressive approach here could pay off big time. If you have enough length off the tee box (280+ yards), consider going for it in two shots and potentially setting yourself up for an eagle putt. Otherwise, play smart by aiming towards any open areas on either side of fairway bunkers.

Local Weather:

During warmer months at Panther Creek Country Club when temperatures are higher and winds tend to pick up later in day - especially during summer afternoons - expect longer distances with downwind shots but shortened carries into greens due increased roll out.

In contrast, cooler months bring about a decrease in ball distance due to lower temperatures and denser air. Be sure to take this into account when selecting your club for the tee shot.

Additionally, altitude should also be considered as Springfield sits at an elevation of 558 feet above sea level. Shots may fly slightly farther than expected due to the thinner air at higher altitudes.


No matter your handicap, the 14th hole at Panther Creek Country Club offers a chance for birdie or even eagle with its varying teebox distances and lack of water hazards. However, precision is key on this small green so choose your club wisely and adjust for any changes in wind conditions throughout the year. And don't forget about altitude and temperature - they can greatly impact your ball flight!
