Hole 2 at Sand Hills Golf Club is a challenging par 4 of 458 yards from the Championship tees. At 368 yards from the Pro tees and 284 yards from the Women's tees, this hole still requires precision to score well. The slight dogleg right fairway is 53 yards wide with 3 bunkers on either side. Although there are no greenside bunkers, precision will be key for approach shots into the 13972 sq ft green area.

The altitude in Mullen can cause some issues when hitting tee shots or approaches due to changes in ball flight conditions throughout the year. During summer months, temperatures can reach up to 95 degrees Fahrenheit which will affect how far your drives travel and require longer clubs for approaches than you would normally hit in other climates. In winter months, temperatures drop as low as 20 degrees Fahrenheit causing golf balls to fly shorter distances than usual; adjust accordingly by selecting one club lower on both tee shots and approaches than normal for these conditions. Additionally, wind gusts may occur during all four seasons so it’s important to factor that into your strategy when selecting clubs off of each tee box or onto the green depending on direction and intensity of winds present during playtime

Given an average drive distance of 217 yards with driver off of the Championship Tee Box, a 7 iron should be sufficient enough for an approach shot into this hole if you are able to keep your drive within striking distance of the green (140-145 yard range). If not then you may need more club such as a 5 iron (~165-170 yard range) or possibly even a hybrid (~190-195 yard range). For those playing off of Pro Tees (368 yds), use 6/7 irons respectively while Women’s Tees should have 8 irons available given their shorter distance requirement (284 yds). Be sure account for wind speed/direction before making any decisions regarding club selection!

Club Recommendations

For this hole, the key is precision. Aim for the center of the fairway and try to stay away from the bunkers on either side as much as possible. When hitting your approach shot, pick a club that will give you enough distance but still allow you to hit it close to the pin with accuracy. Pay attention to wind speed/direction when selecting clubs and adjust accordingly based on altitude conditions in Mullen (i.e., summer months = longer distances; winter months = shorter distances). Finally, aim for the center of green area so that you can have more birdie opportunities if your approach shot is off by a few yards!
