Hole 18 at Pine Valley Golf Club is a par 4 measuring 428 yards from the championship tees and 410 yards from the men's tees. The fairway is 56 yards wide with a slight dogleg to the right, so accuracy off of the tee shot is key. The green area measures 19715 square feet and there are 13 bunkers on this hole, with only 1% of them being greenside. This hole can be challenging in windy conditions as it plays slightly uphill and into any prevailing winds that may be present.

From the championship tees, a good drive should leave you around 250-270 yards for your approach shot, while from the men's tees you should have around 230-250 yards left for your second shot. With these distances in mind, a driver or 3 wood off of the tee will give you enough distance to reach an ideal spot on this hole; however if there is any significant wind present then consider playing more conservatively with either an iron or hybrid club off of the tee instead. For your approach shot look to hit either a 7 iron or 5 iron depending on how much spin and control you want over your ball flight; using pitching wedge could also work here but make sure to account for additional roll out due to less spin generated by shorter clubs like wedges when selecting which club to use for your approach shots.

Club Recommendations

When playing the approach shot, aim for the center of the green to give yourself a good chance at making par. The 13 bunkers that surround this hole are mostly located in front and on the sides of the green so avoid hitting your approach shots into them if possible. With this being an uphill hole with potential windy conditions, also make sure to factor in extra club when selecting which club to use for your approach shot; adding 1-2 clubs more than you would normally hit will help ensure that you can get enough distance and accuracy out of your second shot.
