This hole can be especially difficult in windy conditions as there are no trees to provide shelter from gusts that may affect ball flight or direction. During summer months expect warm temperatures which will make this hole play longer than its listed distance due to increased air density; during winter months cold temperatures could cause shots to travel shorter distances than usual due to decreased air density.

From the championship tee box, golfers should hit their driver around 217 yards for optimal positioning on approach shot as well as avoiding any potential hazards such as bunkers or water hazards that may be present near the green area. After reaching their target location off-the-tee, they should then use a 7 iron (140 yard average) for their second shot into this large green complex while taking into account any wind factors present before making contact with their club head .
