Hole 14 at Bandon Trails is a short but challenging par 4 that requires precision and strategy. From the championship tees, this hole measures at 325 yards with a slight dogleg left. The tee shot will need to be well-placed in order to have a clear approach to the green.

The fairway width is generous at 62 yards, but don't let that fool you. There are three strategically placed bunkers along the fairway that can easily catch errant drives. Additionally, there are greenside bunkers as a small percentage of the total green area, making accuracy on your approach shot crucial.

Depending on weather conditions, such as wind or temperature, players may need to adjust their club selection accordingly. On average though, hitting driver off the tee should leave most golfers with an approach shot of around 140-150 yards.

For those who prefer not to hit driver off the tee or for shorter hitters, using a long iron or hybrid may be a better option in order to avoid running through the fairway into trouble.

Once on the green which measures at approximately 5803 square feet, golfers will want to pay close attention to pin placement as there are subtle breaks and undulations throughout. A pitching wedge from around 120 yards out should give players enough control and spin on their shots for birdie opportunities.

Overall, Hole 14 provides an opportunity for both risk and reward depending on how aggressive one wants to play it. With its relatively low handicap number (12), it's definitely worth taking advantage of this scoring opportunity if played smartly and accurately executed shots are made.
