Welcome to Hole 11 at Yellowstone Country Club, a par 4 with a distance of 400 yards from the Championship tees. This hole has a handicap of 12, making it one of the more challenging holes on the course.

Located in Billings, Montana, this course experiences varying weather conditions throughout the year. During spring and summer months (April-August), temperatures range from an average low of 35°F to an average high of 85°F. The altitude and wind can impact ball flight conditions on this hole, so be sure to adjust your club selection accordingly.

Off the tee, you'll want to aim for the slight dogleg left and take into account that there is approximately 50 yards of fairway width. With a driver averaging around 217 yards for our golfer, they should have no problem reaching this part of the fairway.

As you approach your second shot towards the green area which spans across an impressive 10748 sq ft., keep in mind that there are only two bunkers on this hole with greenside bunkers accounting for just under one percent total bunker coverage. Therefore, if you find yourself in one of these bunkers it's likely due to poor execution rather than bad luck.

With a pitching wedge averaging around 120 yards for our golfer's approach shots and assuming favorable weather conditions (no strong headwinds or tailwinds), aiming for about half way between center green and front edge will give them their best chance at success while avoiding any potential hazards such as water or sand traps near either side.

In conclusion, Hole #11 at Yellowstone Country Club offers both challenges and opportunities for golfers looking to improve their scorecard. Keep these tips in mind when playing during different seasons throughout the year: Spring - Summer = bring extra layers; Autumn = watch out for leaves; Winter = bundle up!
