Hole 9 at Oakmont Country Club is a par 5, 477 yards from the Championship tees. It plays slightly downhill and is a slight dogleg right with 42 yards of fairway width. The green area totals 42470 sq ft, so there are plenty of options for approach shots. There are 7 bunkers on the hole, none of which are greenside; however they can come into play if you miss your tee shot to the right or left side. This hole should be reachable in two shots for longer hitters who can take advantage of the elevation drop off the tee box and avoid missing their approach shot too far long or short due to false fronting characteristics of this green complex.

The weather conditions across all four seasons will have an impact on how this hole plays as well as what club selection is recommended off the tee and into the green complex. In summer months wind may pick up making it more difficult to get close enough in two shots while during winter months colder temperatures will reduce ball flight distances allowing golfers to use shorter clubs than normal when approaching this hole.

Club Recommendations

When playing hole 9 at Oakmont Country Club, here are some tips to keep in mind:

1. Take advantage of the elevation drop off the tee box by using a longer club than normal.

2. Be mindful of wind conditions as they can affect your ability to reach this green in two shots.

3.
