Welcome to the Bandon Trails Course at Bandon Dunes Resort in beautiful Bandon, Oregon! This course is known for its challenging terrain and breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. Hole 2 is a par 3 with a distance of 214 yards from the championship tees, making it one of the longer par 3s on this course.

Before we dive into strategy, let's consider how weather conditions may affect your game. Due to its coastal location, this course experiences mild temperatures throughout the year with average highs ranging from mid-50s in winter to mid-70s in summer. However, wind can be a factor here as it tends to pick up along the coast. Keep an eye on wind direction and speed when planning your shots.

Now onto hole 2 - with a handicap of 17, this hole may seem relatively easy but don't be fooled by its ranking. The long distance combined with any potential wind can make it quite challenging. From the tee box, you'll want to use your driver which has an average distance of ~217 yards according to our golfer profile.

The green area measures at a spacious 12160 sq ft and there are no bunkers on or around it so feel free to aim straight for it without worrying about hazards. However, beware that there is water surrounding parts of this green so accuracy is key here.

For approach shots, our golfer profile suggests using a pitching wedge (~120 yards) or even potentially a 7 iron (~140 yards) depending on wind conditions and personal preference. As always, pay attention to pin placement as well before choosing your club.

Overall, hole two requires precision off the tee and careful consideration for approach shots due to its length and potential hazards near the green. But don't let that discourage you - stay focused and confident in your abilities as you navigate through this beautiful course!

Club Recommendations

1. Take note of wind direction and speed before teeing off on hole 2, as it can greatly affect the distance and accuracy of your shot.

2. Use a driver from the tee box to maximize distance, aiming for the center of the green which is free of bunkers.

3. Pay attention to pin placement when choosing your approach shot club - a pitching wedge or 7 iron may be suitable depending on wind conditions and personal preference.

4. Focus on precision over power when approaching the green due to potential hazards surrounding it.

5. Stay confident in your abilities while navigating through this challenging yet beautiful course - trust in your skills and make smart shots rather than trying to overpower them.
