Hole 13 at Merion Golf Club (East Course) is a par 3 with three different tee boxes. From the Pro Tee, it plays 127 yards; from the Men's Tee, 121 yards; and from the Women's Tee, 114 yards. The green area is 6448 square feet and there are 5 bunkers surrounding it, making up 59% of the total landscape around the green.

This hole requires accuracy off of the tee as well as on your approach shot due to its relatively small size and numerous hazards. For players hitting from either of the men’s or women’s tees, a mid-iron should suffice for an accurate approach that will leave you in good position to make par or better. On days where wind speeds are higher than normal, club selection may need to be adjusted accordingly since this hole is very exposed to any gusts coming through Merion Golf Club (East Course).

Club Recommendations

When it comes to the green, golfers should be aware of the 5 bunkers surrounding it and plan accordingly. Since 59% of the landscape around the green is comprised of sand traps, players should focus on landing their approach shots in a safe area off to either side or short of the pin if possible. This will allow for an easier up-and-down opportunity than if they were to land their shot in one of these hazards. Additionally, when putting on this small 6448 square feet green, make sure you take into account any undulations or slopes that may affect your line towards the hole as well as speed control once you get there.
