It has an expansive green area of 22693 sq ft with 5 bunkers surrounding it, making up 38% of the total greenside surface area.

In terms of club selection, depending on your skill level you may want to consider using a 7 iron or pitching wedge off the tee. During summer months when temperatures are high and wind speeds are low, this will allow for more control over your shot as well as keeping you out of trouble. However during colder winter months when winds pick up, you might want to opt for a driver in order to gain extra distance in order to stay away from any potential hazards around the green.

Club Recommendations

When approaching the green, it’s important to remember that 5 bunkers surround the hole and make up 38% of the total greenside surface area. As such, you should be mindful of both your angle and distance when hitting into the green in order to avoid any potential hazards. Aim for a spot on the green that is away from any sand traps or other obstacles so as not to put yourself in an unfavorable position going forward.

Finally, once you are on the green keep in mind that this hole has an expansive 22693 sq ft putting surface with plenty of room for error if you miss your target line. Take time to assess each putt carefully before striking and try not to get too aggressive with your stroke if you find yourself off-line; there is still a chance at par if you can stay patient and make smart decisions around this tricky hole.
