Club Recommendations

Low Handicapper:

For the low handicapper, this hole offers a great opportunity for an eagle with its length and slight dogleg. With a drive of 280+ yards, you can easily reach the green in two shots. However, be mindful of the water hazards on both sides of the fairway and strategically place your shots to avoid them. The altitude at Blue Hills Country Club may also impact ball flight, so adjust your club selection accordingly. And don't forget about potential changes in temperature and wind conditions throughout the year.

Mid Handicapper:

For mid handicappers, this hole is all about risk mitigation. With teebox distances averaging around 230+ yards, it may be tempting to go for an aggressive shot towards the green. But beware of the bunkers that line both sides of the fairway and protect the green. Instead, aim for a safe landing spot on your first shot and then plan your approach carefully to avoid any trouble areas.

High Handicapper:

As a high handicapper, this hole can be intimidating with its length and water hazards looming on either side of the fairway. Your best strategy here is to focus on avoiding mistakes rather than trying to make eagles like low handicappers do. With average drives around 200+ yards, take conservative shots off each teebox and play smartly towards safer landing areas rather than trying to overpower this hole.

Weather Conditions:

The local weather at Blue Hills Country Club varies greatly throughout each season but generally has moderate temperatures with occasional strong winds due to its location near Kansas City's rolling hills.

In Spring or Fall when temperatures are cooler (around 60-70 degrees), balls will not fly as far as they would during warmer Summer months (80-90 degrees). Additionally,

be aware that high winds can significantly affect ball flight distance.

During Winter months where temperatures drop below freezing,

expect firmer ground conditions which could lead to longer rollouts on drives and approach shots.

Bunkers:

There are only 3 bunkers on this hole, with a mere 2% of the green being protected. These bunkers are strategically placed to catch errant shots off the tee or poorly executed approaches. Keep an eye out for these "fairway bunkers" and aim to avoid them at all costs. However, don't be too cautious as playing it safe may also lead to higher scores. Trust your abilities and make smart decisions based on your skill level.
