Club Recommendations


With a handicap of 1, this hole is known to be one of the most challenging at Blue Hills Country Club. The slight dogleg left and strategically placed bunkers make it essential for players to carefully consider their strategy in order to avoid any costly mistakes.

Playing Tips for Low Handicappers:

Low handicappers should aim for a drive of at least 280 yards from the Championship tee box. This will leave them with a manageable approach shot into the green. However, they must also take into account the altitude and wind conditions, which can greatly impact their ball flight on this lengthy par 4. They should aim to hit their approach shot onto the center of the green, avoiding any potential trouble around its edges.

Playing Tips for Mid Handicappers:

For mid handicappers playing from the Men's tee box, distance control off the tee is crucial. With an average drive distance of about 230 yards, they should focus on hitting a straight and accurate drive that avoids any fairway bunkers or hazards. From there, they can play a conservative approach shot towards the middle of the green and hopefully walk away with a par.

Playing Tips for High Handicappers:

High handicappers may find themselves struggling on this hole due to its length and difficulty level. With an average drive distance of only about 200 yards, they should prioritize accuracy over distance off the tee in order to avoid finding themselves in trouble early on in this hole. Playing safe shots towards safer areas such as fairway bunkers or short grass will help mitigate risks and set them up for more manageable second shots.

Weather Conditions:

In Kansas City during summer months (June-August), temperatures can reach high levels making it important for players to stay hydrated throughout their round. In fall (September-November), cooler temperatures may result in slightly shorter distances off drives but also provide more comfortable playing conditions overall.
