Club Recommendations

For a low handicapper, the Championship and Pro tees offer the best opportunity for birdie or even an elusive hole-in-one. With distances of 233 and 212 yards respectively, these tee boxes require a well-struck long iron or hybrid to reach the green. However, with water hazards guarding both sides of the green, accuracy is essential. A slight mis-hit could result in a lost ball or penalty stroke. Keep an eye on changing wind conditions as it can impact club selection and direction.

Mid-handicappers should aim for the Men's tee which offers a more manageable distance of 190 yards. This allows for a shorter iron shot into the green while still requiring precision due to the water hazards and bunkers surrounding it. Avoiding these hazards will greatly increase your chances at par or better.

High handicappers may opt for playing from either Seniors' or Women's tees depending on their individual abilities. At 185 yards, Seniors' tee presents less risk than Women's tee at 149 yards but may still prove challenging due to its length and potential weather conditions such as strong winds or high altitude affecting ball flight.

Regardless of handicap level, all players should take note of Panther Creek Country Club’s small green area measuring only 7492 square feet. This means that missing shots left, right or long could easily find you in one of three fairway bunkers surrounding this hole’s putting surface – making getting up-and-down difficult.

As always with any golf strategy - play smart! When facing tough pin positions near water hazards consider aiming away from them rather than risking taking on too much trouble off-the-tee; especially when playing in windy conditions where controlling your ball flight becomes crucial.

Happy Golfing!
