Club Recommendations

Playing Tips for Low Handicappers:

As a low handicapper, you have the distance and accuracy to take on this challenging par 4. With minimal bunkers and wide fairways, your main focus should be avoiding the water hazards that line the right side of the hole. Aim for the center of the green off the tee to give yourself a good chance at birdie or even eagle with a well-placed approach shot. Keep in mind that altitude, temperature, and wind conditions can greatly affect ball flight on this long hole, so make sure to adjust accordingly.

Playing Tips for Mid Handicappers:

For mid handicappers, this par 4 offers both challenges and opportunities. The wide fairways allow you to play more aggressively off the tee but beware of the slight dogleg right as it can catch errant shots. Take advantage of your distance by aiming for one of two greenside bunkers which will leave you with an easier approach shot onto this large green. Pay attention to any changes in altitude or weather conditions that may impact your club selection.

Playing Tips for High Handicappers:

As a high handicapper, your main goal on this hole should be avoiding trouble at all costs. The wide fairways give you some room for error but do not underestimate how much water comes into play on this hole – aim left if necessary! Your shorter drive also means choosing between laying up short or going for one of two greenside bunkers which offer easier approaches onto this large green.
