The 18th hole at Merion Golf Club (East Course) in Ardmore, Pennsylvania 19003 is a par 4 of 463 yards from the championship tees. This slight dogleg left offers a fairway width of 32 yards and features 3 greenside bunkers which account for 4% of the total 12437 sq ft green area. With an average driver distance of 217 yards, golfers should be able to reach this green with two well-struck shots. Depending on local weather conditions such as altitude, temperature and wind, golfers may need to adjust club selection accordingly. For example, during colder months when temperatures are lower and ball flight is higher due to denser air, players may need to select longer clubs than usual off the tee. Additionally, wind can also have a significant impact on club selection for both tee shot and approach shot depending on direction and speed. The handicap rating for this hole is 12 so it presents a challenge but can still be navigated successfully if approached strategically with appropriate club selections based on local weather conditions throughout the four seasons.

Club Recommendations

1. Off the tee, select a club that will get you close to the fairway while keeping you away from any bunkers and trees.

2. When selecting your approach shot club consider the altitude, temperature and wind conditions in order to maximize your distance and accuracy.

3. Be sure to take into account elevation changes as well as sand traps when determining how far you need to hit your shots for best results on this hole.

4. Aim for the center of the green with your approach shot so that if it does miss its target, it won't end up in one of the three greenside bunkers around this hole's 12437 sq ft green area.

5. Consider using an extra club or two based on local weather conditions such as colder temperatures which can cause ball flight distances to increase due to denser air or stronger winds which can affect both tee shot and approach shots depending on direction and speed
