Hole 18 at Giant's Ridge Golf and Ski Resort (The Quarry Course) is a challenging par 4 with a distance of 468 yards from the Pro tees. The hole has a handicap of 6, making it one of the more difficult holes on the course. The tee shot requires accuracy as there is water along the left side and bunkers strategically placed on both sides of the fairway.

During summer months, golfers may experience mild winds coming off Lake Superior which can impact ball flight conditions. In colder months, altitude may also affect ball flight due to higher elevation in Minnesota. With this in mind, we recommend using a driver for your tee shot to maximize distance while taking into account any potential wind or elevation factors.

For an average golfer who hits their driver around 217 yards, they should aim for the right side of the fairway to avoid any hazards and leave themselves with an approach shot between 150-170 yards depending on weather conditions.

From here, our recommendation would be to use a mid-to-long iron such as a 7 iron or even an 8 iron if needed to reach the green in regulation. This will allow for better control over your approach shot and minimize risk of ending up in one of two greenside bunkers that make up less than <0% total area around this particular green.

Overall, Hole #18 at Giant's Ridge Golf and Ski Resort (The Quarry Course) requires strategic planning and precise execution from tee to green. Take note of weather conditions throughout different seasons as they can greatly impact how you approach this hole. Keep these tips in mind when playing this challenging yet rewarding par 4 during your round!
