Hole 2 at Oregon Golf Club is a challenging par 4 with a slight dogleg right. From the championship tees, this hole measures 369 yards and has a handicap of 15, making it one of the more difficult holes on the course. The fairway width is approximately 59 yards, so accuracy off the tee will be crucial in setting up an approach shot to the green.

At this distance, our average golfer should consider using their driver for maximum distance off the tee. However, they must be careful not to hit it too far as there are two bunkers strategically placed along the fairway that could come into play if they overshoot their drive.

The approach shot will likely require a mid-iron such as a 7 iron or even an aggressive pitching wedge depending on wind conditions and pin placement. The green itself is large at over 13,000 square feet but does not have any greenside bunkers to contend with. This means that players can focus on hitting accurate shots onto the green without having to worry about navigating around hazards.

In terms of weather considerations, golfers should keep in mind that Oregon Golf Club experiences different conditions throughout each season. In colder months with lower temperatures and potential rain or snowfall, ball flight may be affected and require adjustments in club selection and trajectory control. In warmer months with higher temperatures and potentially strong winds coming from nearby Mount Hood National Forest or Willamette River Valley areas surrounding West Linn town where this course resides - golfers may need to adjust for increased ball carry distances due to thinner air density at higher altitudes.

Overall, Hole 2 at Oregon Golf Club presents both challenges and opportunities for scoring well depending on how strategic golfers plan out their shots based on weather conditions throughout each season.

Club Recommendations

1. Use a driver off the tee for maximum distance, but be mindful of not overshooting it into one of the two strategically placed bunkers along the fairway.

2. Aim for accuracy over distance on your approach shot to avoid any potential hazards and set up a good chance at hitting the green in regulation.

3. Take wind conditions into account when selecting clubs and controlling trajectory, especially during colder months where ball flight may be affected by lower temperatures and precipitation.

4. During warmer months, consider adjusting for increased ball carry distances due to thinner air density at higher altitudes from nearby mountains and rivers surrounding the course.

5. Pay attention to pin placement on this large green and focus on hitting accurate shots rather than navigating around hazards since there are no greenside bunkers to contend with.

6. Practice your mid-iron shots such as 7 iron or pitching wedge before playing this hole to ensure confidence in your approach shot selection based on weather conditions and pin placement.

7. Keep an eye out for any dogleg right tendencies in your drive or approach shot that could affect positioning for subsequent shots on this challenging par 4 hole with a handicap of 15.
