Club Recommendations

For playing tips on Hole 5 at Bandon Dunes Resort's Pacific Dunes Course, here are some suggestions:

1. Take into account the weather conditions when selecting your club and aiming for your tee shot. Wind speeds can vary significantly and will affect ball flight so be sure to factor this in when strategizing your attack plan.

2. Aim for an opening tee shot of around 217 yards (driver) followed by an approach shot ranging anywhere from 140 - 120 depending on skill level and distance control (7 iron - pitching wedge).

3. Avoid the greenside bunker that covers 4% of total surface area as it can easily lead to a penalty stroke or worse if you don’t get out cleanly! Look for opportunities to land short of the green instead, giving yourself more room to work with when chipping onto the putting surface.

4. Make use of available terrain features such as slopes, mounds, etc., which can help redirect shots towards desired targets or away from hazards like bunkers and water hazards that may come into play on this hole.

5. Finally, practice precision with each swing as accuracy is key in order to score well on this challenging par 3!
