Hole 7 at Oakmont Country Club is a challenging Par 4, measuring 479 yards from the Championship tees. It is slightly dog-legged right, with 42 yards of fairway across which to hit your tee shot. The green has an area of 12160 square feet and is guarded by 10% greenside bunkers.

Local weather conditions can vary greatly throughout the four seasons in Oakmont, Pennsylvania. In summer months temperatures can reach into the 80s Fahrenheit and breezes can be light but present; while winter sees temperatures dip below freezing and winds pick up significantly due to its location perched on a hillside above Pittsburgh. Altitude will also play a role as this course sits approximately 1,000 feet above sea level meaning that ball flight could be affected when compared to lower elevations in other parts of the country.

Golfers playing from the championship tees should aim for the left side of the fairway off their tee shot allowing them to have an easier approach shot into this long par 4 hole - however they must avoid being too far left or risk running through it onto trees beyond! A strong drive will leave players hitting anything between a 5 iron and 9 iron depending on wind direction and strength for their approach shots into this large green complex so accuracy will be key here as missing short or long may result in difficult chip shots back onto it due to its size (12160 sq ft). Players should take note that although there are only 6 bunkers around this hole they do guard 10% of the green making club selection even more important if you want any chance at birdieing this tricky par 4!
