Hole 11 at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club is a 158-yard par 3 with 5 bunkers, 16% of which are greenside. This hole has an elevation change from the tee box to the green and can play longer in colder weather due to air density. The 7001 square foot green is slightly elevated and guarded by four bunkers on both sides with one bunker behind the green. From the championship tees, this hole should be played with a long iron or hybrid club depending on wind conditions as it will require more carry than roll off the tee. With an average golfer playing 217 yards off the tee, they would likely use a 7 iron for their approach shot into this well protected green. If there are strong winds coming from either side of the fairway, golfers should adjust accordingly and consider using a pitching wedge or 9 iron for their approach shot instead.

Club Recommendations

Playing Tips:

1. Take into account the elevation change and air density when selecting a club for your tee shot. A long iron or hybrid is best, but you may need to adjust based on wind conditions.

2. Choose a 7 iron as your approach shot if playing 217 yards off the tee, but adjust accordingly with pitching wedge or 9 iron in strong winds from either side of the fairway.

3. Aim away from the four bunkers that guard both sides of this slightly elevated green, taking into consideration any slope changes leading up to it.

4. Be aware of the bunker behind the green and plan your approach shot accordingly to avoid ending up there!
