Welcome to Hole 14 at Yellowstone Country Club, located in Billings, Montana. This is a challenging par 4 hole that measures 441 yards from the championship tees and has a handicap of 2. The slight dogleg left will require a strategic tee shot and approach to successfully navigate this hole.

When approaching this hole, it's important to take into account the local weather conditions. In the spring and fall seasons, temperatures can range from cool to mild with occasional wind gusts. During these times, you may want to consider using a driver for your tee shot as it can reach distances of up to 217 yards on average.

In the summer months, temperatures can be hot and dry with minimal wind. It's recommended to use a driver or even a fairway wood off the tee as these clubs have greater distance potential in these conditions.

During winter months, temperatures tend to be cold with possible snowfall which may affect ball flight distance. A hybrid club or long iron would be beneficial for your tee shot during this time as they provide better control and accuracy in colder weather.

The green area at Hole 14 measures at an expansive 7277 square feet with only one greenside bunker present (1% of total bunkers). However, don't let this deceive you - placement is key on your approach shot as there are two additional bunkers strategically placed near the green that could easily come into play if not careful.

For an average golfer who hits their driver around 217 yards off the tee, aiming towards the right side of fairway will give them an optimal angle for their second shot onto the green. From here, using a pitching wedge (120 yards) or even a short iron such as a nine iron (140 yards) would be ideal for reaching this large green in regulation.

Overall,Hole 14 at Yellowstone Country Club requires precision and strategy both off the tee and on approach shots. With proper club selection, taking into account the weather conditions and careful placement on the fairway, you can successfully navigate this challenging par 4 and hopefully improve your score.
