Welcome to the 7th hole at Oregon Golf Club, The in West Linn, Oregon. This par 4 hole is a true test of skill and strategy, with a distance of 411 yards from the championship tees. With a handicap of 7, this hole may seem daunting to some golfers but with the right approach and club selection, you can conquer it.

The fairway on this hole is approximately 48 yards wide and has a slight dogleg right shape. This means that your tee shot needs to be accurate in order to avoid any trouble on either side of the fairway. The landing area for your drive is crucial as there are two bunkers strategically placed along the left side of the fairway.

For an average golfer who hits their driver around 217 yards, I would recommend aiming for the center or slightly right side of the fairway off the tee. This will give you a good angle for your approach shot while avoiding any potential hazards.

As you make your way down towards the green, keep in mind that there is water located on both sides of it. So accuracy is key when hitting your approach shot onto this small green which measures only 5896 square feet.

With just one percent greenside bunkers out of total bunker count (2), most golfers should not have too much trouble avoiding them during their approach shot unless they miss hit their ball significantly off target.

Depending on weather conditions such as altitude or wind direction and speed throughout each season here at Oregon Golf Club - especially during wetter periods like fall & winter months - take note how these elements may impact ball flight conditions at different times year-round before selecting clubs prior to playing this course's holes like #7 where players must carefully consider all factors affecting shots played into its challenging putting surface!

Finally, based on our inferred data about average distances for certain clubs used by an amateur golfer (driver ~217 yards, 7 iron ~140 yards and pitching wedge ~120 yards), I would recommend using a 3 wood or hybrid off the tee for more accuracy and control. For your approach shot, a mid to short iron such as a 6 or 7 iron should be sufficient to reach this green.

Overall, hole #7 at Oregon Golf Club is all about strategy and precision. With careful club selection and execution of shots, you can walk away with a solid score on this challenging par 4. Good luck!

Club Recommendations

Some additional tips for playing hole #7 at Oregon Golf Club are:

- Consider taking a practice swing or two to get a feel for the fairway and any potential hazards before teeing off.

- Pay attention to the pin placement on the green, as it may impact your club selection for your approach shot.

- If you do end up in one of the bunkers along the left side of the fairway, focus on getting out safely rather than trying to hit a miraculous recovery shot. It's better to sacrifice some distance and take an extra stroke than risk getting stuck in a difficult lie.

- When hitting your approach shot onto the green, aim for the center or slightly right side again to avoid any water hazards on either side.

- If you find yourself struggling with accuracy off the tee or with your approach shots, consider laying up short of any hazards instead of trying to go for distance. This can help minimize potential mistakes and keep you in control of your game.
