Hole 14 at Pine Valley Golf Club is a 184-yard par 3 from the championship tees. It has a handicap rating of 12, making it one of the more difficult holes on the course. The green area measures 9489 square feet and features two bunkers which account for 18% of its total surface area. This makes hitting an accurate tee shot essential; anything that goes long or ends up in either bunker will be very difficult to get up and down for par.

The weather conditions across all four seasons can affect play here significantly, particularly due to altitude changes and wind direction coming off nearby Clementon Lake. In summer months, temperatures are often higher than average so players should adjust their club selection accordingly as ball flight may carry farther than anticipated with increased temperature and humidity levels. During colder winter months, golfers need to prepare for shorter distances due to lower air density resulting from cold temperatures and high altitudes associated with this hole location. Wind direction also plays an important role in how far your shots will travel here; strong winds blowing into your face can make this hole much more challenging while a tailwind could result in additional distance gained off the tee box if hit accurately enough towards the center of the green complex.

Given our golfer's estimated drive distance of 217 yards from the championship tees, we would recommend they use a 6 iron or 7 iron depending on wind conditions instead of trying to reach it with driver given its length relative to their driving accuracy statistics (elevation changes + water hazard). From 168 yards out (men’s tees), you could potentially go with an 8 iron or even a pitching wedge depending on pin placement and wind direction/speed as well as any elevation change between lie position & flag stick location—but keep in mind that there are still two greenside bunkers protecting both sides of this undulating green complex so accuracy remains key!

Club Recommendations

For the average golfer, our best advice would be to lay up short of the green and play a safe shot into this difficult par 3. Aim for the center of the green complex with your tee shot and use a club that will ensure you stay away from both bunkers. Utilizing proper club selection based on wind direction and temperature is key as well; if conditions are unfavorable, it may be wise to aim for an area just short or left/right of the green instead of going directly at it in order to avoid any potential hazards. Finally, approach shots should favor accuracy over power—aiming for a spot on the putting surface where you can get up-and-down easily rather than trying to hit close to pin location (which could lead to trouble).
