The 18th hole at Ballyowen Golf Club is a 416 yard par 4 from the championship tees, with a handicap of 6. This slight dogleg right requires an accurate tee shot to avoid 8 strategically placed bunkers that line both sides of the fairway. The approximate width of the fairway is 47 yards and there are no water hazards in play. With 13788 sq ft, this green has only 1% greenside bunker coverage making it relatively easy to approach with mid-irons or even wedges for shorter hitters.

Weather conditions can vary significantly across all four seasons here in Hamburg, New Jersey 07419 so club selection will need to be adjusted accordingly during each season: In springtime, temperatures range between 20-75 degrees Fahrenheit while summer temperatures usually reach highs upwards of 85 degrees Fahrenheit; autumn brings cooler weather with temperatures ranging from 40-60 degrees Fahrenheit and winter typically sees snowfall and lows around 15 degrees Fahrenheit. Wind speeds tend to pick up as well during these colder months which may impact ball flight conditions on this hole in particular due to its length (416 yards).

For longer hitters (average driver distance ~217 yards) this should not be too difficult of a hole if they manage their tee shot correctly down the center of the fairway avoiding any potential trouble spots along either side. Shorter players should take into account their average 7 iron distance (~140 yards) when selecting clubs off the tee box – depending on wind speed/direction they may opt for something less than driver such as 3 wood or hybrid but still aim for center/right side of fairway leaving them enough room to comfortably hit their second shots onto green without too much difficulty given there’s only 1% greenside bunker coverage here.

Club Recommendations

For all players, the key is to manage their tee shot and avoid any potential trouble spots along either side of fairway. If playing in colder months with higher wind speeds, consider selecting clubs accordingly (i.e., shorter hitters may opt for 3 wood or hybrid off the tee box). Finally, aim for center/right side of fairway leaving enough room to comfortably hit second shots onto green without too much difficulty given there’s only 1% greenside bunker coverage here.
