Hole 13 at Yellowstone Country Club is a challenging par 3 that requires precision and strategy to conquer. Located in Billings, Montana, this hole measures 192 yards from the championship tees with a handicap of 18.

The tee shot on this hole will require a driver for most golfers, as it plays at an average distance of 217 yards. However, the altitude and wind conditions in Montana may impact ball flight and could potentially add or subtract yardage. It's important for golfers to take these factors into account when selecting their club.

As you approach the green, be aware that there are three bunkers strategically placed around it. These greenside bunkers make up only 2% of the total area but can significantly impact your score if you find yourself in one. Therefore, it's crucial to carefully select your approach shot and aim for the center of the green to avoid any trouble.

Speaking of the green, it measures a spacious 7769 square feet which provides some room for error on your approach shot. However, don't let its size fool you – this green has subtle undulations that can challenge even experienced putters.
