Hole #12 at Ballyowen Golf Club is a par 4, measuring 350 yards from the Championship tees. The fairway has a slight dogleg left and measures approximately 44 yards wide. There are four bunkers located on the hole; two of which are greenside bunkers that make up 2% of the total green area (8813 sq ft). This hole can be difficult for inexperienced golfers due to its length and tight fairway. However, experienced players may find it easier as they have more control over their shots.

When playing this hole in different seasons, weather conditions should be taken into consideration. During summer months, temperatures tend to be higher and wind speeds tend to increase making ball flight longer than usual. In winter months, temperatures drop significantly and winds become calmer resulting in shorter ball flight distances compared to other times of year.

For an average golfer who hits a driver ~217 yards, 7 iron ~140 yards and pitching wedge ~120 yards off the tee box would need to hit driver off the tee box followed by a mid-iron approach shot for this hole in order to reach the green safely with enough distance remaining for an easy putt or chip onto the green.

Club Recommendations

When teeing off, aim for the right side of the fairway to give yourself a straight shot into the green. This will also keep you away from any potential hazards on the left side of the hole. When approaching your second shot, make sure to take enough club so that you can land your ball safely on or around the green with enough distance remaining for an easy putt or chip onto it.

Finally, when playing this hole in windy conditions, consider using a lower lofted club such as a 3 wood instead of driver off the tee box and adjust accordingly based on how much wind is present. This will help reduce chances of missing your target due to excessive ball flight caused by strong winds.
