Hole 14 at Ballyowen Golf Club is a long par 4 with slight dogleg left. From the championship tees, it plays 480 yards and has a handicap of 12. The fairway width averages 48 yards and is bordered by four bunkers on either side. There are also three percent greenside bunkers as a percentage of total area to contend with when approaching the green. Depending on the season, local weather conditions such as altitude, temperature and/or wind can have an effect on ball flight conditions for this hole; players should adjust their club selection accordingly in order to optimize scoring potential. For example, during warmer months, golfers may need to hit one more club due to increased air density while during cooler months they may be able to get away with hitting one less club than usual due to decreased air density. With an average driver distance of 217 yards and 7 iron 140 yards (as per chart), players will likely need two shots from the tee box in order reach the green in regulation but could also look into laying up short of the green if necessary based on their skill level or course conditions that day.

Club Recommendations

1. Take into account the local weather conditions (altitude, temperature and/or wind) when selecting club for this hole as it can affect ball flight.

2. Use a driver off the tee to reach 217 yards on average in order to have a chance of reaching the green in regulation with your second shot.
