The fairway width is 57 yards wide with 8 bunkers placed strategically throughout and 10% of them located around the green. Depending on your tee shot, you may need to be mindful of the water hazard that comes into play near the green.

The weather can have an impact on this hole as well – in summer months, you’ll want to take altitude and temperature into account when hitting your club selection off the tee; in winter months, wind can cause havoc for golfers looking to attack this hole aggressively. With a driver distance of 217 yards and 7 iron 140 yards, players will likely use their big stick off the tee with a long iron or hybrid approach depending on how much they are able to cut off in order to avoid any trouble spots. Players should also consider using their pitching wedge if they find themselves within 120-yards out due to its accuracy under pressure situations.
