Hole 12 at Oregon Golf Club is a challenging par 3 that requires precision and strategy. Located in West Linn, Oregon, this hole measures 173 yards from the championship tees with a handicap of 16. The altitude and weather conditions can greatly impact ball flight on this hole, so it's important to carefully consider club selection.

From the tee box, players should aim for the center of the green which is surrounded by two greenside bunkers that make up only 1% of the total green area. With water also present on this hole, accuracy off the tee is crucial to avoid any potential hazards.

For an average golfer who hits their driver around 217 yards, I recommend using a long iron or hybrid off the tee to ensure accuracy and avoid overshooting into trouble areas. For approach shots, a mid-iron such as a 7 iron would be suitable for reaching this lengthy green. However, depending on wind and temperature conditions during each season (spring/summer/fall/winter), adjustments may need to be made accordingly.

With its elevated position and varying pin placements throughout different seasons, Hole 12 at Oregon Golf Club presents unique challenges for golfers looking to score well. By strategizing wisely with club selection based on distance and weather conditions, players can successfully navigate through this difficult par 3.

Club Recommendations

Playing Tips:

1. Club selection is key on this challenging par 3 hole. With the potential for altitude and weather conditions to impact ball flight, it's important to carefully consider which club to use off the tee.

2. For an average golfer who hits their driver around 217 yards, a long iron or hybrid would be a good choice off the tee to ensure accuracy and avoid overshooting into trouble areas.

3. Aim for the center of the green from the tee box, as there are two greenside bunkers that make up only 1% of the total green area. This will give you a better chance at avoiding hazards and landing your shot safely on the green.

4. Depending on wind and temperature conditions during each season (spring/summer/fall/winter), adjustments may need to be made accordingly when selecting clubs for approach shots.

5. The elevated position of this hole can also affect club selection, so take that into consideration when choosing which club to use for your approach shot.

6. A mid-iron such as a 7 iron would be suitable for reaching this lengthy green, but again, adjust accordingly based on weather conditions and pin placements throughout different seasons.

7. Don't let water intimidate you - focus on accuracy off the tee rather than distance in order to avoid any potential hazards near or around the water.

8. Remember that precision is key on this hole - don't try to overpower it with your swing, instead focus on hitting solid shots with good technique in order to successfully navigate through this difficult par 3 at Oregon Golf Club.
