Hole 9 at Oregon Golf Club is a challenging par 4 that requires both accuracy and strategy. From the championship tees, this hole measures 342 yards and has a handicap of 9. The tee shot will require a carry over water to reach the fairway, which slopes slightly left towards the green.

When approaching this hole, it's important to consider the altitude and weather conditions. At an elevation of approximately 200 feet above sea level, shots may fly farther than expected. Additionally, wind can be a factor as this hole is exposed to gusts coming off nearby hills.

For an average golfer with distances of around 217 yards for their driver, 140 yards for their 7 iron, and 120 yards for their pitching wedge, I recommend using a hybrid or long iron off the tee to ensure enough distance while also avoiding any potential hazards. Aiming towards the right side of the fairway will provide a better angle for approach shots.

The green on Hole 9 is relatively small at only about one-tenth of an acre in size (6817 sq ft). However, there are no greenside bunkers present so players can focus on hitting accurate approach shots without fear of getting stuck in sand traps.

With its slight dogleg left shape and strategic placement near water, Hole

9 at Oregon Golf Club presents challenges for golfers of all levels. By taking into account course conditions and proper club selection off the tee and on approach shots, players can navigate this hole successfully and hopefully improve their scoring average.
