Hole 7 at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club is a par 3 measuring 173 yards from the Men's tees. With a green area of 12,068 sq ft and 6 bunkers surrounding 18% of the green, this hole can be tricky for even experienced golfers. During the summer months, expect warm temperatures with little wind to affect ball flight conditions. In colder months such as winter and spring, altitude and wind may come into play making club selection more difficult. The ideal tee shot should land in front of the green but beware of missing long or left as there are bunkers that will catch errant shots. For most players, an iron or hybrid off the tee is recommended depending on weather conditions while approach shots should favor a mid-iron to get close to pin position without risking running through onto other side of green due to slope changes around holes edges.

Club Recommendations

1. For tee shots, use an iron or hybrid depending on wind and altitude conditions. Aim for the front of the green to minimize risk of landing in one of the 6 bunkers surrounding 18% of it.

2. When approaching the green, favor a mid-iron as this will help you get close to pin position without risking running through onto other side due to slope changes around hole edges.

3. Be mindful that warmer temperatures with little wind during summer months can affect ball flight so adjust your club selection accordingly.

4. Keep in mind that colder months such as winter and spring may bring higher winds which could also affect ball flight so be sure to factor this into your club selection strategy as well!
