Hole 7 at Ballyowen Golf Club is a challenging par 4 measuring 411 yards from the championship tees, 384 yards from the pro tees, 347 yards from the men's tees, 321 yards from the seniors' tees and 285 yards for women. The hole has a handicap of 1 and features an 11392 sq ft green with one greenside bunker (1% of total). This hole plays slightly uphill and requires accuracy off the tee as well as good club selection on your approach shot.

In summer months when temperatures are warm, golfers can expect some roll-off due to dry conditions so be sure to factor that into your strategy. In autumn you may experience gusts of wind which could affect ball flight patterns so adjust accordingly. Winter brings cold weather and frozen ground which will reduce carry distance but increase roll-off potential while spring brings more moisture in the air making it easier for golfers to get maximum yardage out of their shots.

For most players hitting a driver off the tee should leave them with around 200 - 220 yards left for their approach shot depending on where they land in relation to hazards such as bunkers or water hazards. A mid iron such as a 7 iron should give enough loft to clear any obstacles while still leaving you within reachable range if played correctly. If you find yourself further away than expected after your drive then consider using a longer club like 5 or 6 iron instead of taking risks with shorter clubs like wedges or even pitching wedge around this green area.

Club Recommendations

The green is 11392 sq ft so it's important to get your approach shot close enough to the pin for a birdie or even an eagle opportunity. A good strategy would be picking out a spot that will give you the best chance of getting your ball within 10-15 feet of the hole. This way, if you miss slightly on either side, you'll still have an easier putt than if you were further away from the pin.

Finally, remember that this is a challenging par 4 and don't let yourself get too greedy by trying to hit shots beyond what's comfortable for your skill level as this could lead to costly mistakes and higher scores overall. Play smart and conservatively; making sure each shot is well thought out before hitting it can go a long way in improving scoring on this hole!
