Hole 14 at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, Maryland is a 335-yard par 4 with an 8 handicap. This hole has a slight dogleg right that requires accuracy and precision off the tee. The fairway width of 33 yards gives players a decent margin for error but any wayward shots will likely be punished by one of the eight bunkers strategically placed around the course. With 9335 square feet, the green is large and relatively flat so it may be possible to make up ground on approach shots if you can stay out of trouble off the tee. Wind conditions vary throughout each season but especially during spring and summer when temperatures are higher; this could affect ball flight distances as well as club selection depending on your ability level. For golfers who hit their driver 217 yards, they should have no problem reaching this hole in two shots with their second shot being around 140 yards from 7 iron or 120 yards from pitching wedge depending on wind direction and speed. Greenside bunkers account for 4% of total bunker count making it important to plan your approach accordingly while keeping an eye out for sand traps guarding the green sides which could add strokes to your scorecard if not avoided properly.

Club Recommendations

Playing Tips:

1. Aim your tee shot down the left side of the fairway, as this will give you the most room for error while avoiding any potential sand traps on the right side.

2. Choose a club that allows you to reach the green in two shots with enough distance to carry any bunkers guarding it. A 7 iron or pitching wedge should suffice depending on wind conditions and direction.

3. Use your practice swings to assess wind speed and direction before selecting a club for your approach shot so you can properly adjust accordingly and avoid any greenside bunkers that may be present around the green.

4. When putting, read all breaks carefully as this large flat green could have subtle slopes that affect ball movement if not accounted for correctly during setup and stroke execution..
