Welcome to Hole 14 at Giant's Ridge Golf and Ski Resort (The Quarry Course) in Biwabik, Minnesota. This par 5 hole is ranked as the 8th most difficult on the course with a handicap of 8. The distance from the Pro tees is 513 yards, which may seem daunting, but don't let that discourage you.

As you approach this hole, take note of its slight dogleg right shape. This means that your tee shot should be aimed towards the left side of the fairway to avoid any potential hazards on the right. With an average drive of about 217 yards, using a driver off the tee would be a good choice for most golfers.

Once you've safely landed your tee shot in play, it's time to think about your approach to the green. The distance from here can vary depending on which set of tees you're playing from, ranging from 424 yards for women up to 499 yards for men. Based on these distances and assuming an average iron distance of around 140 yards with a seven iron or around120 yards with a pitching wedge, I would recommend using either one of those clubs for your second shot.

When considering club selection and strategy for this hole throughout different seasons, keep in mind that altitude and temperature can affect ball flight conditions at Giant's Ridge Golf and Ski Resort. In colder weather or higher altitudes, expect some extra carry on your shots while warmer temperatures may result in less carry distance.

One thing you won't have to worry about when approaching this green are bunkers as there are none located directly around it - greenside bunkers make up zero percent of total bunkers on this hole! However, do not underestimate this large green area measuring at over11 thousand square feet - proper club selection will still be crucial here.

In summary,Hole14atGiant'sRidgeGolfandSkiResort(TheQuarryCourse)is a challenging par 5 that rewards strategic play. Aim for the left side of the fairway off the tee, use a driver and then an iron or wedge for your approach shot, and take into consideration how altitude and temperature may affect your ball flight. With no greenside bunkers to worry about, focus on hitting an accurate shot onto this large green to set yourself up for a potential birdie opportunity. Good luck!
