Welcome to the 5th hole at Bandon Trails Course, located in the beautiful coastal town of Bandon, Oregon. This par 3 hole is a challenge for golfers of all skill levels with a distance of 133 yards from the championship tees and a handicap rating of 15.

As you approach this hole, take note of the three bunkers strategically placed around the green. While they only make up about 10% of the total green area, their placement can make for tricky recovery shots if your tee shot doesn't find its mark.

Speaking of tee shots, with an average driving distance of approximately 217 yards for our golfer, I recommend using either a pitching wedge or short iron off the tee to ensure accuracy and avoid any potential hazards.

The green itself spans over an impressive 15,507 square feet and does not have any water hazards surrounding it. However, keep in mind that being on topographically undulating terrain can add some challenges when reading putts.

When considering weather conditions at Bandon Dunes Resort throughout each season, it's important to note that altitude may impact ball flight due to being situated near sea level. Additionally, wind coming off the Pacific Ocean can be unpredictable and could potentially affect club selection and shot direction on this open course layout.

Overall, approach this hole with strategy and precision to secure your par or even birdie opportunity. Good luck!
