Hole 9 at Caves Valley Golf Club is a 402 yard, par 4 with a slight dogleg right. This hole features 6 bunkers and 2% of them are greenside. The fairway width measures 40 yards wide while the green area is 11331 sq ft.

The tee shot requires accuracy as it plays slightly downhill to a landing zone that can be affected by wind conditions due to its altitude. In the summer months, temperatures may also affect ball flight distance and trajectory so club selection should be adjusted accordingly. For longer hitters off the tee, they will have an opportunity for birdie but must avoid water hazard on the left side of the fairway in order to set up their approach shot into this large green complex. Shorter hitters will likely need two shots to reach this green in regulation due to its length from championship tees; however, they still have an opportunity for birdie if they find themselves in position after their second shot (with driver ~217 yards or 7 iron ~140 yards). A pitching wedge (~120 yards) should provide enough loft and spin control for players who are able to find themselves on this large green complex surrounded by 6 bunkers with 2% of them being greenside hazards.
