Club Recommendations

Championship and Pro teebox players should aim for the center of the green on this 197 yard Par 3 hole. The small green size, combined with potential water hazard, makes it crucial to hit a precise shot. With an altitude of approximately 1,000 feet above sea level in Kansas City, Missouri and potentially windy conditions during certain seasons, club selection is key for these longer hitters. A low handicapper can expect to hit their drive around 280 yards or more at Blue Hills Country Club.

Men's teebox players have a slightly shorter distance of 162 yards but still need to take into account any potential weather factors such as wind speed and direction. It may be wise for them to aim just left or right of the pin depending on the location of fairway bunkers that could come into play. Seniors' teebox players will likely use their mid-range clubs like a hybrid or long iron off the tee due to their average drive distance being around 200 yards.

Women's and Senior Women's teebox players should utilize shorter irons off the tee given their average drives are typically less than 150 yards. These shorter hitters should also keep in mind that there are three bunkers strategically placed near the green which could impact their approach shot if they don't reach the green in regulation.

Regardless of handicap level, all golfers should carefully consider club selection and course strategy when playing this hole at Blue Hills Country Club due to its varying distances and potential hazards. By aiming for accuracy rather than trying to make eagles, golfers can mitigate risk while still giving themselves a chance at scoring well on this challenging Par 3.
