Club Recommendations

Low Handicapper (280+ yards):

Off the tee, low handicappers should aim for the center of the fairway to avoid any potential hazards. With a distance of 417 yards from the championship tees, this hole may be reachable in two shots for skilled golfers. However, it is important to take into account wind conditions, especially during winter months when strong winds can impact ball flight and require adjustments in club selection. The slightly elevated green is well protected by bunkers on either side, so approach shots should be aimed towards the center of the green.

Mid Handicapper (~230+ yards):

For mid handicappers, aiming for the left side of the fairway off the tee may provide a better angle to approach this slight dogleg left hole. With a distance of 398 yards from both men's and pro tees, it may still be possible to reach this green in regulation with two solid shots. Keep an eye out for any crosswinds that could affect your shot trajectory and adjust accordingly. Be mindful of bunkers surrounding the green and try to leave yourself with a clear shot onto this large putting surface.

High Handicapper (~200+ yards):

High handicappers should focus on finding accuracy over distance off the tee on this challenging par 4 hole. Aim for the right side of fairway where there are fewer hazards present. From here, it will likely take three shots to reach this slightly elevated green which is surrounded by five bunkers. Take note that only 2% percent of these greenside bunkers are actually located on or near the putting surface - making them easier to avoid but still potentially penalizing if found.
