Hole 5 at Ballyowen Golf Club is a par-5, 560 yard challenge from the championship tees. The handicap of 12 makes this hole a bit more difficult than average and golfers should take extra care when planning their approach. From the tee box, players have to decide whether they want to go for it in two shots or lay up with their drive. There are four bunkers located off the fairway which can make an aggressive line tricky but there are no greenside bunkers so going big could be rewarded if done correctly.

The green is 13327 sq ft and has some undulation that will require accurate iron play to get close enough for birdie chances. Local weather conditions such as altitude, temperature and wind should be taken into account when selecting clubs for both your tee shot and approach as these factors may affect ball flight distance significantly throughout each season - particularly during summer months when temperatures can soar in New Jersey! A driver of ~217 yards, 7 iron of ~140 yards and pitching wedge of ~120 yards would all provide good options depending on how aggressive you wish to play this hole.
