Hole 9 at Sand Hills Golf Club is a slight dogleg right, par 4 of 402 yards from the championship tees. The fairway width is 68 yards wide and there are 5 bunkers along the hole, with 1% of them located on the green. This hole has an assigned handicap of 12, making it one of the more difficult holes on this course.

Due to its length, most players will need to hit a driver off the tee in order to reach their desired distance for their approach shot into the green. The slight dogleg right should be taken into account when selecting your club and aiming your drive as you don't want to end up blocked out by trees or rough that line both sides of this fairway.

The weather conditions can have a big impact on this hole throughout all four seasons; during summer months temperatures may rise causing balls to travel further than usual due to less air resistance while windy days could cause problems hitting accurate shots off the tee box or onto the green. During winter months cold temperatures can reduce ball flight distances so keep that in mind when selecting clubs for your approach shot into this 8383 sq ft green guarded by greenside bunkers. A 7 iron or pitching wedge would be ideal depending on how far you hit these clubs (140-120 yards respectively).

Club Recommendations

When on the green, be sure to factor in any slopes or breaks that may affect your putt. A good rule of thumb is to always aim slightly above the hole for a downhill putt and below the hole for an uphill putt. The large size of this green will require more precision than other greens on this course so make sure you read the break correctly before putting.

Overall, Hole 9 at Sand Hills Golf Club requires a well-executed tee shot followed by an accurate approach shot into a large green with potential breaks and bunkers surrounding it. With proper club selection off the tee and when approaching the green, as well as accounting for weather conditions and slope/breaks on the green, players should have no problem navigating their way through this par 4 with confidence!
