Hole 5 at Pine Valley Golf Club is a challenging Par 3 that plays 232 yards from the championship tees and 221 yards from the men's tees. The green area of 8,598 square feet is guarded by 4 bunkers, with 1% of them situated greenside. This hole has an assigned handicap rating of 12, making it one of the more difficult holes on this course.

The weather conditions in Clementon can vary greatly throughout the seasons; during summer months temperatures may reach up to 90°F with high humidity levels which can cause balls to fly further than usual due to increased air density. In winter months temperatures can drop below freezing and wind speeds are known to be strong enough to affect ball flight direction and distance significantly.

Given your average driver length of 217 yards, you will need a good tee shot here in order for any chance at birdie or par. A well-struck mid iron should leave you within pitching wedge range if you manage to avoid all four bunkers that guard this green complex. If there is any wind present it could prove difficult as even small changes in direction can have major impacts on where your ball ends up - so make sure you take into account how much clubbing up or down may be necessary depending on what way the wind is blowing!

Club Recommendations

1. Choose the right club for the distance and wind conditions: Depending on the season, you may need to adjust your club selection accordingly in order to hit a successful tee shot. If it is summertime and there are high humidity levels causing balls to fly further than usual, then you should take that into account when selecting your club. During winter months with lower temperatures and stronger winds, be sure to factor in how much clubbing up or down may be necessary depending on what way the wind is blowing.

2. Aim towards the center of green complex: With four bunkers guarding this hole, it is important to aim towards the center of this 8,598 square foot green area in order to avoid any trouble spots around its perimeter. This will leave you with a better chance at making par or even birdie if your approach shot lands close enough!

3. Consider taking an extra club: Taking an extra club can help ensure that you reach greenside bunker-free and have a good chance at making par or birdie here if all goes well with your approach shot from within pitching wedge range!
