Club Recommendations

Low Handicapper:

For low handicappers, this hole offers a great opportunity for birdie or even eagle with the right approach. With a powerful drive of 280+ yards, you can easily reach the green in one shot. However, accuracy is key here as any shots off target will likely end up in one of the three bunkers surrounding the green. Keep an eye on wind conditions and adjust your aim accordingly to avoid these hazards.

Mid Handicapper:

The mid handicapper should focus on hitting a solid tee shot with their average distance of ~230 yards. This will leave them with a manageable second shot onto the large green area. Be cautious of the bunkers and try to aim for the center of the green to avoid any potential trouble around it.

High Handicapper:

With a shorter drive averaging ~200 yards, high handicappers may struggle to reach this long par 3 in regulation. Instead, play smart and aim for an accurate tee shot that avoids any trouble such as fairway bunkers or rough areas. From there, take advantage of short game skills to get close enough for a decent putt and save par.

Weather Considerations:

Winged Foot Golf Club is known for its challenging weather conditions throughout all four seasons. In particular, strong winds are common which can greatly affect ball flight on this already lengthy hole. Pay attention to wind direction and speed before teeing off and make adjustments accordingly.

Overall Strategy:

Regardless of handicap level, precision is crucial on this hole at Winged Foot Golf Club's West Course. The large green area provides some room for error but staying out of trouble from fairway bunkers or greenside bunkers will be key to scoring well here.
