Depending on your playing level and club selection this may be a mid-iron or hybrid shot into a relatively flat green that slopes slightly back to front so you’ll need to make sure you get enough loft on your approach shot to stop it near where it lands. Depending on which tee box you play from, wind can also become a factor as well as altitude changes in different seasons. During summer months expect warmer temperatures and more elevation off your shots due to higher altitudes while during winter months colder temperatures might affect ball flight conditions making them fly lower than usual.

Club Recommendations

For your approach shot, try to stay below the hole and make sure you hit it with enough loft to keep it from running off the back of the green. If there is a bunker in front of the green, consider using a slightly higher-lofted club so that you can clear it easily but still have enough control over the ball’s trajectory. Make sure to take into account wind direction when picking your club selection as this will affect both distance and accuracy. Finally, remember that while putting on sloping greens can be tricky, taking an extra moment or two before each putt may help you read the break better and increase your chances of making more putts.
