Hole 13 at Ballyowen Golf Club is a par 4, playing 395 yards from the Championship tees and 303 yards from the Women's tees. The hole has a slight dogleg right, with an approximate fairway width of 39 yards. There are three bunkers located off the tee and none on the green. Depending on your skill level, you may need to decide between laying up short of or driving over them for your approach shot into this 12129 sq ft green.

This hole can be tricky in all four seasons due to varying weather conditions; in summer it can be hot and humid which will affect ball flight distances, while winter months bring cold temperatures that will reduce carry distances as well as make club selection more difficult due to frozen ground conditions. Windy days can also cause havoc here so pay attention to local wind patterns when making your decision off the tee box.

For most golfers hitting driver around 217 yards (as per chart), they should consider laying up short of these bunkers if they have any doubt about clearing them safely - leaving yourself an easier mid-iron or wedge approach shot is always preferable than having to play out of sand! For shorter hitters who don't hit driver too far (~140 yard 7 iron) then taking on these bunkers could be a viable option since there is enough room past them for even longer shots that go slightly offline still find their way back onto safe ground just before reaching the green area itself.

Club Recommendations

When approaching the green, be sure to factor in the size of this 12129 sq ft green. A good strategy here is to aim for a safe spot on the green and then use your putter or wedge to chip close. This will give you more control over your shot selection and help ensure that you don't end up too far away from the hole after making contact with your approach shot. Finally, remember that bunkers are not always bad - if you have a short iron into this huge green, using one of these strategically placed sand traps can actually work in your favor by providing an easier escape route than trying to hit directly onto the putting surface itself!
