Hole 10 at Merion Golf Club (East Course) is a par 4, approximately 310 yards from the Pro tees, 294 yards from the Men's tees and 270 yards from the Women's tees. It is a hard dogleg left with an approximate fairway width of 30 yards. The green area measures 10103 sq ft and it has 5 bunkers, 14% of which are greenside bunkers.

This hole requires accuracy off the tee as there are trees on both sides of the fairway that can affect your shot if not hit straight down the middle. Depending on what season you're playing in, local weather conditions such as altitude, temperature or wind may have an effect on your ball flight so keep this in mind when selecting clubs for your tee shot and approach shots. A driver should be used off the tee to maximize distance but make sure to stay away from going too far left or right due to trees lining either side of the fairway. For most golfers hitting a 7 iron will put them within range for their approach shot unless they hit their drive further than expected then they would need to adjust accordingly using less club depending on how much extra yardage was gained by their drive. In addition to avoiding water hazards and trees along both sides of this hole, navigating around any greenside bunkers could also present some challenges getting close enough for birdie opportunities so plan ahead accordingly with your club selection before taking your second shot into play here!

Club Recommendations

For the approach shot, select a club that will put you within range for an easy chip or pitch into the green. The green is relatively large so hitting it with your iron should be achievable as long as you avoid any water hazards and bunkers along the way. Aim to land your ball on the center of the green if possible and trust your putting skills to get you close enough for birdie opportunities!
